Growing up, watching cartoons like The Jetsons saw me imagining Fashion in the future to be structured metallic looks like the picture below.

And this....
Futuristic Pastel Fashion:

Well, it seems like we are gradually heading in that direction.

Issey Miyake at Paris Fashion Week Spring 2014:

This trend isn't new, its been seen somewhere around the 80's. Somewhere between the sky-high shoulder pads and bedazzled skirt suits of the eighties, metallics got a bad reputation as being over the top. Today, however, shiny clothing and accessories mean one thing: glamour. On the runways, everyday outfits were injected with a shot of glitz.

This low-key take on the metallic trend can be worn outside of the runways. A silver pant or jacket jazzed up an otherwise monochromatic and standard outfit. Metallic accents—belts, bags, and shoes— sprung up all over the place, as an easy way to get in on the trend without going all in. 
This trend has matured, and somehow these glittery skirts, shirts, trousers, and dresses have us wanting to sparkle our way from the office to dinner. 
Check out metallic pieces that can be worked into your everyday look for work, date and pretty much every style mood.
