A definitive sheen shone through the SS13 catwalks with designers like Louise Gray, Christian Dior & Burberry Prorsum all featuring an array of metallics.  Now that spring is around the corner, it's time to add a dose of sparkle to your trans-seasonal wardrobe. Afraid you may look like a glorified Christmas tree?  Fear not, we have a step by step guide on how to work the trend.

1.  Balance the metallic piece with wardrobe basics (think an easy tee and statement necklace), or let a metallic top pop through a leather jacket.

2. Don't wear multiple metallics at once. Start with your statement piece & build your item from there.

3. Try not to over-accessorize when sporting a strong metallic piece. Streamline your look with basic accessories for maximum impact.

4. Too afraid to wear metallic clothing? Try a clutch or molten heels for a subtle take on the trend.
