Normally I tend to restrict my metallic pieces to smaller items in my wardrobe such as bags and shoes which allow you to add a pop of high shine without it overpowering your look.

I’ve now decided to up the ante and take my love for metallic to the next level with a pair of metallic pants. It’s high time to embrace our inner disco girl and luckily, it’s just in time for party season.

The key to wearing metallic pants is to style them with clean neutrals and solid covered basics. Keep the remainder of your outfit grounded by pairing them with a crisp white tee, heels and an oversized blazer for the ultra-cool girl look.
