The Style Guru: Liquid Chrome
It seems like the chrome trend is always flashing in and out of the trend scene. However, this year there is a bit of a new take on chrome! Basically wearing chrome without looking itchy, stiff or breaking into a sweat. This season the chrome is liquefied, creating a smooth sexy and versatile appearance.
Tops or bottoms in metallic are easy to build outfits with. Subtle prints or textures and solid colors balance a metallic piece easy. Wearing a solid creates blocking which allows for the opportunity to add more chrome in shoes or accessories without looking overdone! H to T chrome outfits might not be the greatest idea, unless you’re really trying to make some sort of bold statement, decide to play dress up for laser tag or are in need of a fabulous evening wear outfit of course! Marchesa’s F/W ’12 collection has great examples of nearly full metallic pieces or with metallic elements. This Marchesa gold metallic evening dress is absolutely stunning and fluid; you would not need an ounce of accessorizing!
Don’t forget that this liquid metallic trend isn’t solely in gold or silver. Violet, green and any other color is available in this chrome trend! accessorizing or wearing a colored metallic piece can really make a bold trendy statement! Take Roger Vivier’s metallic green clutch, this accessory is practical, beautiful and right on point for the chrome trend!
As well as a pair of Maison Martin Margiela’s Metallic sneakers, these faux leather high tops are trendy and extremely practical street wear!
