Spring 2012 Fashion Week Trend: Metallic

Spring 2012 Fashion Week Look We're Loving: Sparkly Bottoms

Easy breezy looks and fun evening shine? We're all for this runway trend of mixing metallic bottoms — a sequined miniskirt at DKNY, gold lasercut leather shorts at Cynthia Rowley, slouchy beaded pants at Rebecca Taylor — with casual tops. Of course, there's no need to wait until next Spring to try it out. This look works for Fall, too. Here's our tip for making it work, and sparkly pieces you can shop now!

  • Pair them with cozy knit sweaters, and make it slouchy; try a cozy v-neck boyfriend sweater for ultimate comfort and chicness.
  • Try a structured blazer, with a t-shirt underneath, to make it a dressier look.
  • If you want to try the look with a sparkly dress, add knit tights and a big scarf.
  • Now shop the look — we found some amazing sparkly options to score right now!
