Silver Is The Way!

When it comes to fashion trends I tend to take on elements of what’s popular. One trend that totally captured me this season is silver fashion! Metallic clothing items really bring some fun edginess to a look, they work in all seasons and give ladies like me that little extra shine we love! Another trend that has really taken a life of it’s own this season is fun velvet. Elvi recently gave me the opportunity to review one of their items. You can only imagine my thoughts when I got the chance to combine the 2 trends not only in an outfit but a single item!

The nude gold coloured velvet of this t-shirt is easily worked into a variety of outfits. I like that it’s a neutral shade and compliments all skin tones. The velvet is light on the skin but has a nice amount of stretch also. I’m wearing this one in a size 24. I am currently obsessed with not just silver items but chrome silver! The different sized chrome loops are a really fun feature on the pocket of the t-shirt. They add that little something extra to the item that makes it stand out.

When I got this top I knew that I had the perfect pair of heels to wear with it. I had been hunting for a pair of silver chrome stiletto heels since I had seen that the trend was coming several seasons ago! The challenge was finding an affordable pair that was comfortable and sexy at the same time. I found this pair at Asos several weeks ago. Unfortunately they are sold out but here is a similar pair if you want a pair of your own.

When it comes to velvet items they tend to bring out my sexy side. Feeling fun, flirty and a very fashionable makes dressing all the more enjoyable. In completing this outfit I wanted a really simple selection of colours. Black goes with everything of course so I selected a leather skirt, fish net tights and my largest silver hoop earrings. I have a range of style ideas when it comes to wearing this top. It can be worn with jeans, wet-look leggings and all kinds of skirts.

I think it’s important to select clothing items that make you feel confident, comfortable and fabulous. I find that even when pushing the boundaries there are ways to expand and experiment. You may have noticed I’ve been wearing a lot of skirts lately. I guess you could say I’m trying to improve my skirt game and get that bit more confident in showcasing my legs. There are many ways of playing around with fashion so get to trying I say!

I’m going to start as I mean to go on and will be on the hunt for more silver and velvet items. The party season is coming with Halloween, Christmas and New Years so why not?! Shiny things and glamorous velvet are perfect for the winter and will always work year in year out!

Speaking of Silver you may remember earlier in the year I wore a fabulous trench coat. This was another fab item from Elvi. Check out their current collection for some fab edgy styles this season.
