TREND TALK: DRIPPING IN METALLICS

When it comes to fashion, to me more is more. I’m not talking about the pricetag, but the details of an outfit. So when the metallic trend is coming back again this fall, I’m all excited in embracing it because honestly it’s never not trending in my heart. Metallic is something that I will always love to add to my look, even if it’s just a brush of sheen eyeshadow, highlighter or lip color. But this time, I’m showing you how I rock this Happa by Mel Ahyar dress which is dripping in multicolored metallic sequins, with accessories like sequin earrings, bucket bag with tassels and brogues all in the color metallic - after all, it is trending this fall!

Sequin on sequin. Why not? Even if your dress is embellished with metallic sequins, don't be afraid to make your look more festive with sequin earrings - just like these ones I got from MANGO.

I think the key to pulling off an outfit with lots of metallics is to match the metallic colors in it. The dress already has black, purple, silver, and gold sequins on it, so I chose metallic accessories with those colors. For example, this gold bucket bag with tassels from CHARLES & KEITH.

To add a twist to my look, I'm using these silver Dr. Martens brogues which dress down the outfit but still making it look staggering.

What I love most about this dress is how it is rich with line print and colorful sequins, but most of all is the unique cutting - intentionally oversized shoulders, assymetrical bottom and decorative straps on the front. The kind of dress that makes you forget about investing in a little black dress, because why fit in if you can be yourself and stand out?
