Everything We Love About Metallic Dresses and Jumpsuits
Glittering and shimmering, bold and brave. These were the shining stars of New York’s Fashion Week as seen on many runway collections and fashion A-listers, proving that metallics are not just for the holiday season and are here to stay.
These wardrobe movers and shakers are this season’s newest and most glittery neutrals and come in such versatile shades as gold, silver and rose gold.
If you want to take a dive into this metallic trend, you’re in luck. We have a wide collection of long gowns, shorter dresses and jumpsuits that are tailor made for nighttime special occasions as well as for seeing the light of day at the office or brunch.
Metallic Short and Midi-Length Dresses and Separates for Daytime and Less Formal Events
With our shiny new metallics designs finally in stock, it’s easier than ever to add a dose of shine to your everyday look with our short or midi-length dresses and separates. The best part about adding a metallic dress or top to your wardrobe is this style is trend-right and perfect for every occasion—whether it’s a girls night out, a dinner date with your significant other and even an excellent choice to wear to work if you’re planning to head out after for cocktails or a holiday party. Metallics are a desirable choice to help you feel a little more polished and ready for a party.
So how do you tap into the metallic trend during the day or for more casual events? From classic dresses with hints of metallic threading to head-to-toe gold cocktail dresses, we like to adhere to the old saying less for wearing metallics during the day or less formal events without feeling over the top.
To lower the wattage, team your metallic style with pieces with other neutral color palettes. For example, gold metallics look great with creams, pinks and greys while silver metallics are better matched to blacks, greys and whites. Mixing your metallics with other neutrals still will pack a punch, just without being over the top.
Metallic Knit Sheath Dress
We love this classic black dress as a wardrobe go-to for its endless fashion possibilities. The metallic threading is only giving a taste of shimmer and is perfect for all day occasions or if you’re heading out to cocktails after work. Pair with flats for day and slip-on heels when you’re out the door for the evening.
Draped Metallic Knit Top
The metallic knit top like this off this draped style with a dramatic cowl back doesn’t have to be reserved for a night out only. It’s an amazing option to wear as office wear or for brunch. Just style with black pants or jeans and you’ll be very work appropriate, even if you must sparkle a little bit. You can swap out the look for ankle boots or pointy-toe heels for a nighttime option.
How to Wear Long Metallic Dresses and Jumpsuits for Holiday Parties and Formal Events
Of course, if you are full embracing the metallic trend and ready to experiment with this high shine fashion moment, we say go for it! After all, what is fashion and trying new things without sometimes taking a risk. We love head-to-toe metallic—we believe it is the perfect addition to your wardrobe because it’s a sure-fire way to add glam and glitz to your wardrobe and you’ll have a piece ready for you when you want to be bold and brave.
Imagine the feeling when you swap of the traditional little black dress for a metallic one. It’s a game changer, we promise. Our only suggestion when you are wearing a completely metallic outfit is to make sure your accessories—your shoes, bag and jewelry—aren’t competing with it.

Be Careful How Much Metallic You Put On
While shiny fabrics don’t necessarily add pounds, they also don’t subtract them. The trick of dressing well is to draw attention to your best features and away from areas you want to downplay. For instance, if you don’t want to draw attention to your thighs and backside, don’t wear metallic here that will only draw attention to it.
