Metallics were a huge trend seen on the Fall 2012 runways, so when I found this top on eBay last month for less than $15, I decided to give it a try (my only complaint is that it wrinkles quite easily, as evidenced by these photos). My husband refers to this as my “disco fever” look…obviously he wasn’t a fan. But when styled in a simple way, I believe gilded pieces can look very chic. Another example of metallics done right is this look on Kate Bosworth, which I love and happens to be perfect for summer. I also think this blouse will transition well into fall too – peeking out from under a sweater & paired with camel trousers or a leather pencil skirt.
What I’m wearing:
J. Crew shirt (via eBay – similar here or here), Gap trousers, Urban Expressions clutch c/o Baghaus (here), ELLE pumps, Dockers aviators (on sale here), Bracelets: J. Crew, Vintage & Tasha (similar)
