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!

    Not so sure about the 80’s- I was a teenager back then and wore retina-burning patterned pants, giant plastic earrings, neon t-shirts with a torn neck, huge shoulder pads, and leggings paired with a tweed blazer! Or maybe I just had really bad taste…?

    Haha nah, not bad taste…you were (and are) just fashion forward and unafraid to try new things.
