“The joy of dressing is an art.” — John Galliano

Shimmering fabrics and shiny accessories are all the rage this season. With metallics all around, there’s no need to save your flashy fashion statements until after dark! All you magpies can come out and embrace your love for sparkles!

Inspired by runway looks today I’m pairing this gorgeous ‘First & I’ pleated metallic dress with a wide dramatic belt.

This runway trend emphasizes femininity while embracing the strength and delicacy of being a woman.  A mix of delicate meets tough, I personally love the interplay between the soft element of the dress against the robust feature of the belt.

First & I is the brand you need to know Guys, we’re talking bold prints, bright colours and statement pieces so basically everything that you can see on the Fall/Autumn 2017 runways.

 This fabulous pleated metallic dress is a real bargain that you can get literally for a few pounds from ASOS! If you’re the girl who loves a good trend when you see one, then this dress is perfect for you! The last time I checked on ASOS this dress was already sold out but keep an eye on this little darling as it is extremely popular!

The high ruffle neckline, pleates, cropped sleeves, beautiful figure hugging metallic fabric, and height lengthening silhouette… a combination of grace and sophistication.  It’s great for a special occasion piece or a night out with the girls.

So Guys, stating the obvious, the space cadet look is in. Futuristic, high-shine ensembles have been walking the Fall 2017 runways for months now. Meanwhile I advise more wearable takes on the trend, opting for pops of silver before you go full-on astronaut!

Metallics are one of the biggest trends for AW17 so before you add anything to your basket, take a look at my round up of the best metallic items on the high street.

What do you think about the futuristic, high-shine ensembles shaping our wardrobes this Fall and Winter 2017?
