I know what you’re thinking: “Man, I’ve been wanting a metallic midi dress, but would I wear it?” Or maybe you’re thinking: “There’s this metallic midi dress chilling in my closet, but I don’t know how to style it!” Well, reader, today is your lucky day.
If you’re a bit wary of this post, and you’re wondering why anyone would want a metallic midi dress in the first place, I understand. Before August of last year, I would’ve thought the same way! But then I needed a dress for my study abroad graduation, and this one touched my soul. What can I say? I’m a sucker for things that sparkle.
For my graduation, I styled it with a pair of mules (before it was cool, holla). You can see this snazzy look on Insta.
You can obviously dress up a metallic dress with equally metallic heels and jewelry, but that’s a bit much for your typical day to day activities. So how can you style it to look cool AF at whatever event you’re going to? I’m here to tell you!
Add a totally awesome jacket
It doesn’t matter what kind of jacket you prefer: denim, leather, trench, suede, whatever. The key here is that it has to be super rad.
The denim jacket I’m wearing here has metallic bauble details on the collar, which makes it perfect for a metallic dress. These two pals were meant to be.
Stylish, yet sensible heels
Again, this is technically open to interpretation. As I mentioned earlier, I previously wore this dress with a pair of high heeled mules (the heel was also metallic! I’m obsessed). For this particular look, I decided to go with a fun pair of color block heels. Other fun ideas would be sandals or a cool pair of boots!
Subtle, yet coordinating, necklace
Your dress, jacket, and shoes are generating a whole lot of attention, so you should keep the rest of your look more understated. This particular dress has a pretty high neckline, so I went for a choker. If you have a lower cut dress, you could opt for a simple pendant!
Lots of sass
Last, but certainly not least, you need multiple levels of sass! When you’re wearing this look, you’re basically the next Queen of England (unconfirmed) and you need to own the room. Serve looks, throw shade, and do whatever else kids these days do. You’ve earned it.
