Not going to lie, I was freezing this day. I had a puffer jacket and chunky boots I wore on top of this look but took it off for the sake of this outfit post ( I wish I wore heeled ankle boots though- coming later)... what was I thinking? Anyway, I wore this look on a snowy day after coming from an event which was nothing short of amazing, I enjoyed it but forgot to photograph the look for the blog. So, I stopped at a favourite bridge to quickly take some snapshots. For the outfit, I decided to embrace the metallic trend subtly by wearing this thrifted metallic scarf(similar here) as a belt. I loved the rock chic feel of the silk scarf and gravitated to a red hijab and thought a turban will make a nice contrast. I kept some minimalist elements: an oversized white shirt; form fitting black skirt; and classic pumps. I decided to pair this super feminine A-line skirt (like this one) with something a little more boxy top to play with the proportions. This was my most worn jacket this week (besides my puffer), and I have to say I'm digging the long wrap coat look. I finished the look off with a classic smokey eye (watch my smokey eye routine) and a metallic pink lip (watch my sephora haul). I love the flashy touch of metallic they added to my look.
Because Fashion has turned it's heels from minimalism to everything over the top, I decided the metallic scarf was in line with my favourite trends lately, including embroidered bombers, tight vinyl pantsand embellished Gucci bags. However, as someone who craves classic silhouettes, I tend to veer on the side of caution when it comes to embracing trends too enthusiastically. To be exact, I recently bought into the pastel fur trend and spoiler alert, I'm loving it.
So if you are looking for something metallic to pair with a timeless white tee or black blazer, I would recommend the addition of a thrifted silk metallic scarf to keep your look updated without feeling ostentatious. Next solid metallic purchase would probably be space cadet ankle boots from Urban Outfitters, I love the flashy touch of metallic without seeming too space cadet. Paired with your classic button ups and black separates, the overall effect should be "cool" or "street."
Do you think you guys will incorporate more metallic into your wardrobe this season? Let me know below! Have a great Wednesday!
