Shine Bright In Jaeger London!

Here at YCB, we like to think of ourselves as Magpies; we’re lovers of all things which shine. That’s why we’re currently obsessing over the killer trend that’s hitting the rails for SS13, which is getting the fash pack into a frenzy… Metallics!

Metallics at the BRIT Awards 2013

Not a boomerang trend, this look has been absent from the catwalks for several seasons, but the FROW at London Fashion Week were treated to a rainbow of iridescent foils from the likes of Louise Gray, Armani and Burberry Prorsum.

This luxe look is set to make waves this season, with high profile celebs sporting the trend. Most recently, TV’s Laura Whitmore hit the BRITs red carpet, looking amazing in this metallic gold shift.

Your Coffee Break girls aren’t slaves to fashion; so we’d say handle this trend with care. Metallics make for a great look, but draw inspiration from the trend, rather than going for a head-to-toe look. Choose one or two metallic pieces to blend with plain, crisp fabrics and colours for the perfect balance. Remember, you want to look more ‘Quality Chic’ than ‘Quality Street’.

The high street is awash with Metallic-inspired pieces. For high-class style, indulge in Jaeger’s tailored pieces. We love this Tweed Tulip Sleeved Coat for an instant outfit update. Or, tick the matchy-matchy trend box, too with this glam look.
