Happy Tuesday, my dear friends!
I haven't said that for what seems like forever, lol! As you know, these past few weeks, I cut back on my posting schedule from 5 days a week to 3, but I think we may be back on track, so it seems for now because things seem to be going back to somewhat of a normal in my neck of the woods. Though does anyone really have a "normal" life and schedule this time of year!? It's rather overwhelming and busy, while still being pretty fun, right?
There's a group of neutrals that always come to mind this time of year and that's metallics, mainly because they read festive and add a bit of energy to an outfit. I recently purchased two metallic pumps (can you guess which brand? If you know me well enough, you know the answer is Nine West, haha) and shared them on my IG story over the weekend. A number of you loved them and some were thinking of purchasing a pair of metallic shoes, but weren't too sure how to wear them. My answer? Wear them as you would a nude pump!
Yup, metallics are classified as neutrals, just as much as nude and black are. What better way to create an almost effortless festive outfit than to swap out your nude or black pumps for a pair of metallics!? But, I must note that they aren't that easy to style. Here are some things you may want to consider to create your perfect holiday outfit:
1. Keep your skin tone in mind. I won't go into great detail here, since I did a complete post this time last year on what metallics, specifically gold, silver, and rose gold look best on each skin tone, as well as how to determine your skin tone if you're unsure here. It really does make a difference on how the metal looks against your skin.
2. Just like certain metals look best on specific skin tones, they also look best on specific colors! Here's a little cheat sheet using some festive/seasonal colors:
- Silver- Black, grey, white, any shade of blue, true red, deep red with bluish undertones and jewel toned colors
- Gold- Black, white, beige, any shade of pink, dark blue, true red, bright red with an orange-y undertone and jewel toned colors
- Rose- Goes great with any color, though it can appear a bit muted when paired with reds and pinks because of it's rosy tones
