Trend Alert: Over-the-Top Metallics at Europe Fashion Weeks


During the Fall/Winter Fashion Weeks, we've grown accustomed to a constant rotation of coats, boots, and long-sleeved numbers that rely on the material, not cut, to make the item stand out. This season, patterns have never been more prominent and simple pieces are being coated with leather now more than ever. But there's no better way to make a look stand out than to incorporate a huge amount of metallic sheen.

We at MC have never been ones to turn down some metallics, from full-length gowns to pencil skirts and jackets to long-sleeved mini-dresses. Here are four undeniable metallic numbers we first spotted on the runways in Europe… And haven't been able to stop thinking about ever since.

#1: L'Wren Scott

Featuring head-to-toe gold shimmer, this look includes a matching headband, choker, and heels alongside the dress' metallic sheen.

#2: Emilio Pucci

Pairing ornate detailing with an exuberant gold glow, this mini-dress could be worn on many, many occasions.

#3: Balmain

Jumpsuits have never been so in. This space-age look radiates shine and dramatically stood out among the rest of the show's looks.

#4: Paco Rabanne

We can't get enough of each of these items worn individually, yet alone worn altogether. The silver top is reminiscent of a futuristic suit of armor, while the metallic trend trickles down to those boots' toes.
