It seems that spring has finally sprung, and the best way to add to a nice polish to all your new spring style is with a hit of metallic shine. Metallics can be refined, classic, boho or a bit edgy, and can even work well for daytime or nighttime.

A good metallic shoe can make a very cool statement and is surprisingly neutral. Something in a silver or a gunmetal can be just as versatile a selection as a black or nude. Modern Vice is a super cool New York City based brand with a great rock and roll vibe, and a whole section of their line dedicated to metallic options. They primarily offer a selection of super cool boots, but also feature some equally wearable and on-trend menswear inspired shoes.

The Jodphur Chelsea Boot is a sleek, deep silver low-heeled boot that would be just as on point with a floral dress and blazer as it would be with skinny jeans and a t-shirt. If the boot thing isn’t up your street, the Gotham Flat in gold is the perfect alternative. It’s an easy come, easy go slip-on shoe that can get you out the door looking put together in a flash.

Another great way of adding a hint of shine and color is with a bit of holographic leather. A clutch is a good way to add a hint of sheen to your wardrobe without it being overwhelming. There are a whole slew of metallic bag options on the market these days, but Loeffler Randall has the perfect understated holographic silver leather clutch to mix in with some of your more classic pieces for an easy, high-quality spring wardrobe update.

Finally, if you need a touch of a high shine but aren’t interested in the standard metallic accessory choices, a supercool pair of mirrored sunglasses double up as a metallic accent and sun protection. Randolph Eyewear, out of Massachusetts, offers a stellar selection of made in the USA aviators to add an extra layer of cool to your warm weather look.

No matter your approach to fashion, there is a way to inject a little shine (and edge) into your look for the warmer weather. The best part about this trend is that it’s the kind of addition to your style that you can carry from springtime into the summer and beyond.
