We found you the best of the metallic trend

If you only remember one thing this season, remember this: if it’s metallic it’s definitely en vogue. As seen on the SS17 runways of fashion’s crème de la crème – Giorgio Armani, Kenzo and Marc Jacobs, just to name a few – this ultramodern trend has never looked so chic. 

Rebecca Vallance dress, $549. Country Road earrings, $49.95 Rebecca Vallance dress + Country Road earrings.

Whether it’s done with a disco twist – sequins anyone? – or a futuristic flare, the metallic look has induced a serious night fever, and we’re loving it. After all, there’s nothing like a luminescent dress to put you in the mood for dancing the night away.

To welcome the arrival of summer’s social calendar, we found you the best of the metallic trend…
