Metallics are definitely a trend I'm excited for this spring. It can really add some glamour to an extremely simple outfit. When I watched the Burberry Prorsum SS13 show during London Fashion Week last year, I was in awe of the amazing colours of the trenchcoats that were on display. It was like a rainbow of metallics. They were hot. They included shades of pink, purple and blue. Definitely a welcomed surprise to the usual trenchcoat. There's a picture at the bottom of this post.
I decided to pick out a few metallic pieces that have caught my eye. Let me know what you think!

To be honest, I haven't seen a lot of metallic pieces yet on the high street, but I'm sure once they get rid of their winter stock, there will be many to enjoy. I do hope that the colours are bright and not your standard silver or gold though. I also think that you have to be careful with metallics, you don't really want to look like you've stepped out of an 80s shell suit party bus.
Below is a picture of the Burberry Prorsum SS13 show I mentioned earlier. How gorgeous are these colours?
So what do you think of this trend? Will you be jumping onboard?
