Tinfish Trendwatch: Metallics

Metallics seem to come round in some form or another every Spring/Summer. This isn't a bad thing. The glint of sunlight of a well chosen metallic accessory is a very beautiful thing indeed. There's also something inherently luxe about metallics. They whisper of sun filled days on the Cote d'Azur, shimmery golden tanned skin and white swimwear that is designed for lounging, not getting wet.

Metallics take a bit of a 60s sci-fi twist this season though. The key trend for SS13 is metallics that are holographic, futuristic, Space Odyssey-esque. Fashion as a whole has taken a long hard look at the 60s (again) for this season and we're quite excited about some of the more unusual colours and styles that are around.

We think these futuristic metallics look great with the sports luxe look. Mix up flashes of go-faster neon with a neutral palette of greys and white and add the final POW! with metallic accessories. We love DKNY for a great sports luxe look - look out for similar on the High Street from Zara and COS.
