Seen on the Streets of Paris: Metallics


Shining with the cool light that bounces off pale Parisian walls, the City of Light is a mine of burnished attire. I saw a full-pleated silver skirt and fell in love. It was simple but beautiful and a gorgeous way to wear metallics.
I began to notice gold and silver shoes glinting from the pavement, scuffed slightly and looking like old gold and iron. People were inventive with where they chose to wear their metallics. Metals were infused in knits and jeans—unusual to see normally natural-looking fabrics gleaming. One girl even mixed gold and silver with her gold-webbed Primark top and silver and red Torula bag.
