Omiru Poll Results: Metallic Fashion is In!

Omiru Poll Result: Metallic Fashion is In!

DKNY Metallic All Weather Trench CoatWe asked: Is Metallic Fashion (e.g. Gold and Silver) In or Out?

You said:  Metallic fashion is in, but it’s a trend, not a classic.  49% voted metallic fashion In, but 21% voted it Out.

Omiru’s take: While metallic fashion is more fitting during the holiday season, there’s no need to put it away once you take the tinsel down.  But take the advice of our friends at Couture in the City–skip the head-to-toe shiny getups and opt for metallics in moderation.  Be aware, though, that the shiny nature of metallic fashions tends to add pounds, so apply the shine liberally.  The safest bet?  Metallic accessories.  Try a pair of silver heels–or a burnished gold handbag.

Next Question: 80s Fashion was all over Fashion Week–think off-the-shoulder tops, gold lamé, and high-waisted jeans.  But what do You think?   Tell us, is 80s Fashion In, or is it Out?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

Key Takeaways:  Cynthia Steffe’s sweetly chic Fall 2007 collection presented familiar silhouettes and details, such as oversized jackets and cardigans, dresses with pockets, and the Spring 2007 favorite, skinny pants.

Color Palette: Black, white, grey and medium beige, complemented by lavender, magenta and shades of purple.

Silhouettes: Loose shapes ended at the knee, and were paired with slender black stockings or pants layered underneath.  Controlled volume made appearances at the waistline, the hemline, and on sleeves.  Of note were the dresses, which featured sleeves and/or pockets, and the jackets, which distinguished themselves with oversized sleeves and/or collars.

Accessories Report: Wide bangles in crème, clear and silver mesh as well as thin belts with finger-width silver polished buckles. 

What’s Wearable: Victorian-inspired high necked dress shirts will be elegantly wearable this fall.

What’s Not Wearable: Avoid mixing two strong patterns, such as florals with stripes, unless you have a good eye for pattern.
