Kittens! We bombarded you with tons of holiday sweater options! Then, we nagged you into taking a look at our comprehensive and utterly fabulous holiday gift guide for everyone on your list! And now, with just enough time on the calendar, we’ve pulled together an entire list of party wear in the hottest celebrity red carpet trend of the season: METALLICS.
Just this week alone, Zendaya, Karen Gillan, Gwendoline Christie, Laura Dern, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Billie Lourd, and Lupita Nyong’o all stepped out sporting eye-poppingly bold and festive metallic looks. We realize it’s not a coincidence that so many of these ladies were out promoting a Star Wars movie, but it wouldn’t be the first time that franchise spawned a real-world style trend. Besides, this is the best time of year for glamming up even your casual outfits. If not literally for a New Year’s Eve or other holiday party, than as a way to fight the shortened days and colder nights by bringing a little pop of regal fabulousness into your wardrobe rotation.
But really, Lo went to town on this one as a way of styling the most fabulous imaginary New Year’s Eve party he could think of. Brace yourselves, kittens. You’re about to drown in metal.
Take a moment to let your eyes adjust to all the shine. You might want to put your shades on.
As you can see, Lo once again took a style brief and then translated into the widest range of styles, pieces and price points he could find. The one thing every piece has in common is that brilliant New Year’s Eve shimmer, whether it’s found in a sweater, a dress, a combat boot, or a clutch. That’s the great thing about metallics; as a design element, they span every style from Classic Elegance to Party Princess to Hardcore Rocker Chick and everything in between. Best of all, it never truly goes out of style. As long as people will be popping corks at midnight and kissing strangers after counting down from ten, there will be shimmery dresses, shoes, jackets and purses along for the ride.
So, feeling like going a little hardcore metal for the New Year, darlings?
