Trendspotting: Gold Metallic Minidresses

Here's a great post FashionWithoutGuilt posted in our Cheap Chic and Frugalosity groups.

Rise and Shine! Metallics and mini dresses are back with a vengeance. The trend this season is sexy shine. As pictured, Eliza Dushku is showing us a great example of this trend done right. Forever 21 and American Apparel have some great alternatives we can all afford.

When choosing metallics there are a few things to consider:

  • The type of material of the garment: Fabrics with shine, if not chosen wisely, can come across as low quality. To prevent this, try the item on first. Is there a stretch to the fabric or do you just look like a roll of aluminum foil?
  • No shine overload: I am all for glitz but sometimes there can be too much. If you are going to incorporate shine into your ensemble, please use discretion. Do not ever wear this fabric as a top and bottom. The fashion police will be called immediately. Choose one garment and stick to it.
  • Have fun: Metallics are all about fun and making a statement. So own it and be fierce.

I don't like Eliza's dress either; but I love this trend - I'm still especially in love with that one-shouldered piece of perfection that both Katie Cassidy and Paris Hilton have worn...

I don't even think it looks good on most hollywood starlets! i love Eliza Dushku but she has very small hips and it's really obvious that the sleeves are way too long. she could have done better with a boat neck metallic gold top with 3/4 sleeve and a white skirt with body, or at least a skirt that hides small hips well. I'm not really feeling the whole gold mini dress anyways. it's super glammy and attention attracting. Way to glamed up for any event or outing I ever get to go to.

This look seems to be picking up somewhat of a following. Hayden Panettiere had a similar look earlier this week. I am not sure if I am on board with it. It looks great on Hollywood starlets, just not sure us mere mortals could pull it off.
