Go For Gold In Spring's Shiniest Metals



metallic-spring-looks-silver-gold-3

We don't need a trend to be madly in love with metallics (it's an all-the-time thing with us). But considering so many of our go-to designers decided to play alchemist this season, we decided to do some gold-digging. Phillip Lim, Roksanda Ilincic, Richard Nicoll, and, of course, Topshop all cashed in their golds, coppers, and glossy silver lamés, but in a way that felt so much richer than your typical tacky metallics. We're so into the look, we added on some liquid silver nail polish and a few other shiny extras to make your metal fetish complete. Ka-ching!
