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.
