Last week on Style Panel, myself and my lovely co-panelists tackled the metallic trend. I have to admit I sort of struggled to find something in my wardrobe that was overtly metallic (other than jewelry of course) and so I decided to gather some items that help to better exemplify this trend for you blog reader.

*The following is in no way endorsed, but simply items that are my metallic picks for Spring/Summer. 

I am seriously gushing over these “Ja Ja” shoes from Shoe Mint. I love a nude
shoe (I think everyone needs one) but with the metallic stripe across the center? I could die!

I love this Nixie Metallic Fold-Over Clutch from Calypso but it’s a little out of my price range! Hoping to find one similar at a more affordable price point. I love the subtle shine on this clutch though I think it’s just perfect for a Spring/Summer outfit. 

How adorable is this Camille and Marc peach and metallic skirt from Shopbop.com ? I think this is how you sport this trend this season; there’s something about mixing pastels and metallics that makes me swoon. 

Playful and pretty, here are some potential options for sporting the metallic trend this Spring/Summer. To check out the responses to this week’s style panel click here

    I love a little metal! That striped skirt is great for creating curves (says this gal with no hips)!
