SS16 trend alert: Metallics and neutrals

With winter coming to a close, the weather (slowly) getting warmer, and the days slightly longer, spring is well and truly in the air. And you know what that means… SS16 collections are hitting the stores! Judging by what’s dropped so far, metallics and neutrals are undoubtedly in. And they’re a match made in style heaven. I’m sharing a selection of my favourite items so far to help inspire you to spring into SS16.

The brogue

In the words of Hansel from Zoolander, Metallic brogues are sah hot right now. While there’s plenty to choose from, my favourite feature a neutral (rather than wood) heel to add a touch of femininity to an otherwise wholly androgynous look.

Bomber jacket

Bomber jackets are another huge trend right now, so why not combine all three and go for the trend trifecta? A neutral coloured bomber jacket with a hint of metallic will tick all the boxes and ensures every outfit packs a sartorial punch.  IMG_2064-0

The bag

A metallic bag works in any wardrobe. It can inject some much needed colour in even the darkest of wardrobes (the colour really pops against an all black outfit) but also blends well with pastels and neutrals.

If you’re not into metallics or pastels, or simply don’t want to jump on the trend just yet, jewellery can be a great way to test the waters – and add a bit of glamour while you’re at it.
