Whether you’re braving a big New Year’s bash or just rocking around your kitchen… Metallic looks that will make you shine
Dressing up for New Year celebrations calls for some shimmering metallic magic, even if you are only attending a kitchen disco.
Light-reflecting and mood-boosting, metallics were all over the catwalks in many guises — from shiny, sweet-wrapper joy, to a hint of glinting thread. Warehouse has embraced the ‘more is more’ philosophy, serving up two showstoppers: a glamorous gold lamé halter dress (fifth from right) and a glistening maxi with a bronze zig-zag pattern (fourth from left).
Temperley Londen also marries metallics with bold pattern in its 1970s-inspired, purple leopard-print jumpsuit (derde van regs). Pure fabulousness.

Intussen, the aptly named Gatsby sparkly knit dress by L. K. Bennett (derde van links) certainly conjures up visions of an opulent, champagne-fuelled soiree.
If a dress is not your style, try separates, but don’t play it safe. In plaas daarvan, experiment with metallic combinations. Byvoorbeeld, Anthropologie’s silver-toned tinsel vest (heel links) would look great with black trousers — but it’s far more fun styled with the metallic navy midi-skirt from Ted Baker (heel links) and perfect for dancefloor twirling to your favourite tunes.

Net so, you could pair Next’s radiant blouse with something plain, but it really pops with Anthropologie’s shimmering trousers (both second from left).
You may as well fully commit to the ‘look at me’ maxim with your accessories, ook. Try a silver clutch and Terry de Havilland’s gold platforms (fourth from left).
If you’re feeling inspired, there’s still time to hop to the shops for a New Year’s Eve outfit that dazzles. Make like a magpie so you can finish this year — and welcome the new one — in style.
