How to Wear Metallics For An Office Party

metallic trend outfit ideas office party
One of my favorite trends for Fall is definitely metallics. I bought these metallic pleat pants from Topshop a few weeks ago and I couldn’t wait for the perfect opportunity to wear them. Luckily last week I had a work event to go to so the opportunity came to bust this baby out! Because at this event I really wanted to show off my creative side and make a statement too, rather than go for my usual minimalist route I decided to mix it up a bit and incorporate different prints and textures together.

This satin dalmatian print blouse is also from Topshop. It was exactly what I was looking for to go with the metallic pants. I wanted something fun, chic, with a little edgy bohemian vibe to it. By finishing off this look with my favorite pair of snakeskin boots and the black velvet scarf I already have in my closet, I was all set to go. Don’t you love it when you can mix the old with the new seamlessly so you don’t have to buy a completely new wardrobe?

How to Wear The Metallic Trend
  1. Have fun with it! With material so sparkly metallics are meant to be played around with. Be adventurous and try mixing and matching different prints, textures, and shapes together. An office party is the perfect time to show off more of your personality!
  2. If you work in a corporate environment and your work wear is more traditional, think of the 1:1 rule. Pair one metallic accessory with one color palette, i.e. an all black outfit. This way you can add a bit of flair and still stay professional.
  3. Leave the jewelry at home and let all the shine come from your metallic item. You really don’t need anything more to make a statement.
