7 Pieces Made for the Silver Surfer

Silver has left its comfortable place as being the metallic color that is only worn during the holiday season. The chrome chemical has left its natural habitat in the accessory world for a new place in the apparel one. Fall ’17 gave a purpose to the often formal use of silver in fashion. From almost liquid like leathers to silver surfing greys, designers everywhere created more modern methods for a fall trend that is too good not to ride.

Silver on the Runway

Ideas of the “future” are becoming more like our “present.” It seems as if sci-fi movies of the past, are increasingly become a reality. The idea translated subtly onto the runway this fall. Many designers surfed the silver trend this year in various forms. Designers like Prabal Gurung, created formal dresses with details reminiscent of 80’s silhouettes, featuring high collars and full coverage(ish). Brands like Off-White, opted for crop top add-on’s, while Proenza Schouler balanced the metallic with a more subdued color as was the case in many other shows this season.

 

 

How To Wear It

Wearing silver can definitely be a balancing act. But it is one that is pretty easy to do. Move on from the occasion based silver dress shoes this season by adding a pair of stiletto booties to your closet. Pair a grey sweater with a checkered blazer and silver pants for a fun office-ready look. Grab a mini or maxi skirt in the metallic color to wear on a girls night out. You will be sure to be the metallic muse of the evening.
