What made you want to try this trend?
I was browsing the net a few months ago for the Oscars photo galleries and spotted Farrah Fawcett in a liquid metallic gold dress. I couldn't wait for the trend to come back and now it's here!
How do you build your outfit around it?
At first I was thinking of donning just one metallic piece, but I decided I'd do metallic on metallic: gold and bronze.
How do you make the look your own?
Liquid metallics would usually be worn for glamorous nights out or red-carpet events. I made mine into something casual and a little bit rocker-chic.
How do you balance your outfit to avoid making it look over-the-top?
It's awesome that the gold top already has a vest over it. All I had to do was keep the accessories minimal.
Can you give tips on how to wear this trend?
This trend makes for a “loud” fashion statement, and is guaranteed to make people look. So you have to make sure the cut, style and fabric works perfectly with your body type. As for the color, check which one should go with your skin tone and whether it should be a dark or a light shade. When it comes to accessories, one or two pieces would do.
How would you wear it during the day, night, to a party, to work?
This is how I would wear it during the day. At night or to a party, I would wear my wavy hair down and change the bag and shoes to something more glamorous. To work, I would put on a tailored blazer and maybe brogue heels or wedges plus a simpler hairstyle, like a ponytail.
