Heavy Metal Part 1

As a staunch believer in all things soft, seductive and generally vintage inspired, I have been a bit perplexed when it comes to adding anything that reminds me of nuts and bolts to my outfit. I am constantly reminded of my chainmail related disaster of 2000 and still shudder at the thought.

However, with the Autumn Winter metallic trend in full flow, I have forced myself to reconsider my aversion and to try and embrace the vibe. I have to admit, it has been tough but I am genuinely now a convert and found it relatively easy to combine this metal sheen with every day looks. Here is a two - part overview of how to work it without bordering on the Tin Man.

Unless you work somewhere where you can wear gold leggings to work, this can be tricky but the safest way to bring shimmer into the office is through hair accessories. I am literally obsessed with this gold embellished hair band from New Look which goes with everything and provides an understated take on the trend.

Clearly jewellery is a no-brainer but think outside the box and add glitter or pearl sheen to make things more interesting. How about these glitter ivy earrings and bracelet from cult brand Tatty Devine to take on the wild nature trend too?!
