Do you struggle with transforming your outfits from day to night? Don’t worry, CF is here to help turn that daily annoyance into a fun challenge. This column focuses on one piece per week, and aims to help you take your look from study sessions in the library to dancing the night away.
Though metallic clothing may remind you of a sci-fi movie, it’s back in a big way. No, you don’t have to run out and buy clothes so shiny that you’ll look like a Lady Gaga backup dancer, but a subtle metallic glint can make a summer outfit truly stand out.
This week, I’ll be showing you how to wear a pair of metallic shorts for a day of classes and a night out. If you want to recreate the look but you’re not willing to shell out a ton of cash for a trendy piece , try scouting out a fast fashion store like H&M or Forever 21 for your perfect pair.
Metallic Shorts: Class
For day, tone down your eye-catching shorts with a sheer blouse. This will help keep your look relaxed, but also chic and polished. Accessorize with brights like a bold orange statement bag and matching chandelier earrings. Brown gladiator sandals add to the boho-preppy vibe. Add a layered gold necklace for a little extra shine to complete the look.
Metallic Shorts: Night Out
Keep the spotlight on the shorts for night by pairing them with a flowing black crop top for a put-together but effortless look. Be daring by sticking with bold accessorizes, but mix them up a little for a more carefree vibe. Try dangling turquoise earrings with a bright orange clutch and matching heels, with fierce spiked gold and black bangles for a touch of nighttime edge.
