What is the metallic piece in this ensemble and what do you like about it?
Aside from the studded top, I tried to incorporate more metallic pieces like the bag, belt and earrings but my favorite accessory would be the bag because it’s both glam and edgy at the same time.
How else would you style this piece?
I’d wear this with anything! It also has a chain so you don’t have to carry it as a clutch all the time.
What do you love about the metallic trend?
I love how it instantly glams up an outfit.
How do you build your outfit around it?
I chose the white studded top as my main metallic piece and toned it down with black pieces. Also, since the top is very subtle, I tried to pair it with a studded bag and silver accessories to make the studs in the top pop out more.
How did you make this look your own?
Lately, I’ve been feeling a bit more edgy so I tried to incorporate that in this look by wearing a leather jacket and a studded bag. I still kept it feminine though with the flowy top and side-swept ponytail.
How do you wear the metallic trend without looking over-the-top?
Go for the shine you want then balance it out with basic colors and pieces such as a black skirt or black pumps, or both.
How do you accessorize?
It’s all about balancing the look. If you’re wearing metallic garments, you could opt to pair the clothes with more muted colors. If you choose to wear metallic accessories, you can use heaps at once but again, make sure the garments aren’t as loud. Or you could also wear gold pants and match it with a gold statement necklace.
Additional styling tips?
Have fun with it. If you have shiny a belt, maybe you can use it as a bracelet instead like I did in this outfit since I didn’t want to stick to just bangles. The sheen in metals is also very noticeable so you can definitely use that to draw attention to a specific piece or body part. The number of shiny objects is completely up to you.
What's your favorite Mango piece from this ensemble?
The top—I really like its subtlety. It looks like a basic tank but it has silver studs that shine when hit by light.
Which metal shade do you prefer? Bronze, Silver, Gold?
I’m a night person and I think silver is best for nights out.
How would you wear metallic during the day? How about a night out?
During the day, I’d probably just wear pants and use a silver belt or pile up some shiny necklaces on a casual ensemble. Then when I go out at night, I’d lose the pants, turn the belt into a chunky silver bracelet and put on a leather jacket.
