Glam Up Your Party Look With Super Sleek Metallic Accessories

By Ashling McCloy | 6th December 2023

When in doubt, shine. That’s how we’re rolling this Christmas. So we’re completing all our looks with the chicest of high-shine accessories, from glittering silver heels to the most lustrous gold bag. It’s time to glisten and glow…

In terms of trends, it was a case of which designer didn’t embrace a love for metals this season. Molten shades, golds and silvers glistened on the catwalks of Gucci, Paco Rabanne and Isabel Marant. In some cases it was about the top-to-toe shimmer, in others it was simply about the metallic bags or shiny pointed heels. Understandably, some of us will feel more tinfoil than uber chic influencer in the in all-over metallics, so a nod to the trend is all you need. Bring on those accessories.

Bottega Veneta is at the fore with incredibly covetable clutch bags, while Gucci has taken to staggering heights in logo-emblazoned gold heels. As you’d expect the high street was quick to follow with tinseled totes and specious shoes. Zara, of course, has an abundance of silver, from wedges to gaitor boots, while Mango and Free People are a must for both silver and gold handbags. Now all we need are those party invites. 

So begin your love affair with metallics and add one of these seriously chic, high-shine accessories to your festive wardrobe…
