The metallics trend is never too far away, and SS14 happily champions this shining staple yet again. From foil prints, molten metal finishes to frosted pigments and holographic hues, metallics have a way of being rather season-less, working as a standalone statement or as an accent to an existing trend. No matter how you want to embrace it, the good news is what ever piece you invest in now, know that it will be a keeper.

A Touch Of Tonal
Opt for barely there metallics for a frosted, feminine flair.

It’s payweek and we’re finally getting our bank accounts replenished after those hedonistic weeks of unrelenting spending and rummaging through our poor wallets, of which I’ve dubbed it as “the Christmas pillage”. And, with that joyful/dismal day in February that you either love or loathe looming, it’s also the perfect time to shop for Valentine’s Day.

Coupled or not, there are some seriously lustful things out that will keep you going until new season truly kicks in. So, drop your lover the hint to gift you something gorgeous – or as Destiny’s Child encouraged us back in 2009, simply continue being an independent woman and proudly declare, that Jimmy Choo clutch bag? I bought it!
