How to Style Metallics

metallic poncho, how to style metallics

I love wearing gold in the summer. Could be because I have olive skin. Could be because I like a little sparkle. Could be because it is just a swell way to welcome the warm weather. When I purchase this gold poncho to wear to the Ralph Lauren girls fashion show in NYC (read all about that here RL Children's Runway Show ) I knew I'd be wearing this top again and again. In fact, I brought it on a recent vacation to Nice!

But I digress. I meant to tell you how to style metallics. And really it's so easy in summer.

Here's the rule: use white as your base color. Add gold accessories (pile 'em on!) and you're done!

A minute on the mani. I got sneak peak at the newest gel product from Sally Hansen. The new miracle gel polish will last like a gel that you have to bake on the the special lights. This one is quick to dry (perfect for summer) and leaves a great shine. My manicure lasted 10 days and looked fabulous. I'm wearing "Games of Chromes" available later this summer.

A little NYC love! I got some loaner lenses from Moscot a local brand that's all about quality. I'm wearing the STATEN from the MOSCOT Sun Collection ($295), Moscot has NYC locations (the closest one to me is on 159 Court Street
in Brooklyn; Between Dean & Pacific)and glasses are also available online.
