From Vogue to our own fashion blog, we can all agree that metallics are the trend for spring/summer. As May creeps into June, we're straddling the spring & summer seasons - so what better time to get your shine on? And it's not just silver overload; we are loving
brighter colours and more gold and bronze tones to warm this trend up for the season. Whatever your style, metallics have been incorporated into florals, vintage and designer labels so get in on this trend while you can!
Here are the #4oclockfind pieces you can see on our @OxfamFashion twitter this week:
Sam Edelman Tan and Gold Block Heeled Sandals - £45.00
Sandals season is fast approaching as summer gets nearer and this pair is perfect for adding a little golden glamour to your outfit. The block heel and tan makes it great for adding to a daytime outfit - we think a London casual-chic street-style vibe would be so easy to emulate if worn with a white blouse and tan khakis. The gold is bold enough for a night out too so you could even pair it with a miniskirt!
BNWT Ted Baker Metallic Silver Culottes Shorts - £12.99
If you're not a fan of metallics, then why not take a more subtle approach to the trend with these Ted Baker culottes? Not overly shiny, the silver material is just right if you want to keep it simple. The iridescent fabric means you could wear this with a range of colours as the fabric can appear silver, grey or blue depending on the light - magic!
ASOS Abstract Print Metallic Short Sleeved Sheath Dress - £14.99
Combine two of the biggest trends of the season with this metallic ASOS dress: yes, florals and metallics can mix! While florals can be seen as a pretty demure trend, by adding the metallic shine to this bold print, you've got yourself a dress more weekend ready than a "grandma's curtains" look! Innovations with floral prints have been a major trend this season on the red carpet and the catwalk so
this dress is so on-trend!
Vintage 1960's Style Handmade Metallic Cream & Gold Borcade Leaf Detail A-Line Skirt - £9.99
What we love about handmade items is that they're so unique, and this skirt is no exception! Don't let the typical silver space-age looks associated with metallics make you think the trend is incompatible with vintage! The A-line miniskirt is a classic 60's look and the hand-stitched gold brocade detailing is one of a kind. The warm cream and gold tones are great for a sunnier approach to metallics, and just right for the season.
Fashion Union Metallic Sleeveless Crop Top - £4.99
We absolutely love this Fashion Union crop top - and at a bargain price! If you're heading to a festival this summer, fashion is almost as important as the music, and you definitely want to pack a crop top. The bold print and bright colours are so summery but the gold metallic aspect also makes it just right for the metallics trend. It's already glamorous enough to require minimal accessorising which is great for a low-effort festival outfit. Wear this with a black high-waisted skirt and you're good to go!
Lashes of London Metallic Bronze PU Mini Circle Skirt - £9.99
Follow the designers and skip sequins when it comes to adding some shine to your outfit and instead choose metallic fabrics, like this bronze skirt from Lashes of London. The warm colour is ideally suited for a summer look and the cut is free-flowing for a breezy, comfortable look. The skirt is so versatile and you could easily pack it for a festival look or wear it out on the town on a night out. It's bold enough to turn heads no matter how you wear it!
