Trend Alert: Metallica Jackets

I have a ton of Winter coats in my closet, but I've yet to own a metallica jacket. I admit, I was shy of the shiny, but seeing Gwyneth Paltrow in her silver Alice + Olivia coat and Christian Louboutin caged booties at the Valentino event in NYC swayed me otherwise. These toppers inject major wattage to dark winterwear, and are perfect for upcoming holiday soirees. If the longer length is too much bling for your taste, try out shorter jackets or tailored blazers. Let's not forget to pair these shimmery jackets with tough shoes — a la Gwyneth — to temper the glossy glamour.

Indy KJ; I saw it too! although no one should listen to those people because they don't know fashion at all and they have very limited taste. I actually kind of like Gwyneth's because it is still chic and I think it kind of plays on the almost silliness of the trend - it doesn't take itself too seriously. It does look a little cheap and like it's made of tin foil, but I dig it. the rest of the coats are just awful, though...

I think gwen makes that one look great, but I'm pretty certain that any cheap knockoff will just look... cheap.

She's so chic and I really like that jacket, though I agree with Evie- that look could go the route of kitchen essential, or even downright trashy, pretty easily with the wrong one.

Really? Why would I want to look like I'm wearing a roll of aluminum foil?
