Wear the pants!
For those of you finding your jeans a little boring after winter; this season's dazzling metallic trend is really going to make you glow. Not just reserved for evening wear, this summer you can pair metallic pants with a casual t-shirt for a day-luxe look; or combine with a tailored jacket for sophisticated office apparel. The key to looking chic and not cheap; is by keeping the overall outfit as simple as possible, avoid going over-board with accessories, and don't mix prints into the look - Shades of white, black, or navy blue; or subtle pastel tones, work best with metallics. If you need some hints as to what works best with your figure; remember anything bright attracts the eye first, so if you don't want to hold attention on your legs in super shiny bottoms, stick to a darker "brushed" metallic texture.
Wear the trend now! Check out the metallic trousers at Zara in Sandton City (Available in dark silver and brushed gold).
