Fashion Trends to Watch: Metallic and Velvet

It's been a couple of weeks since my last outfit post so I thought I would share more of a "going out" look as I do love getting dressed up to go out, I sometimes even plan two weeks ahead because I get so excited and always end up buying something NEW. This outfit is a little bit darker than I would usually wear. I often opt for a bit more colour but on this occasion I have combined grey and black in the form of a velvet top and metallic skirt which is rather sparkly. You may think a bit of sparkle should only be worn certain times of the year but I think you should be able to shine all year round! A trend I have seen recently includes metallic cami dresses draped over t-shirts for a daring daytime look. 

When I originally purchased the skirt I did think it wouldn't suit my petite frame but I changed my mind as soon as I put my high heeled boots on and the velvet top just casually flows over the skirt. Velvet is a trend you will have seen on me quite a bit since Christmas I just think it's so sophisticated and can be dressed up or down. This open cross design from Missguided is very popular at the moment and adds an extra bit of detail that a necklace usually would.

  1. I really like this combination, that metallic colour is so nice. Great look oxox

  2. What a beautiful velvet top! It's so nice paired with your metallic skirt :) I usually go the boring route and pick a simple dress for going out.

    Hope you are having a great weekend!
