Mixed Metals

Out of all of the many trends happening right now, mixed metallics is one of my favorites. It feels fresh and fun, especially when worn with something more casual. While metallics feel almost classic at this point, we are seeing a fun new thing with intentionally mixed metals. This is easy to do with jewelry but today we wanted to talk about clothing and accessories.


Silver is really growing on me (as long as it is an accessory, worn away from my face — I just look better in gold jewelry!). I LOVE these flats and have had these Aquazzura heels for a while now and they are my most reached for party shoe as they are just so comfortable (yes, seriously!). Besides that, I am a big fan with pairing sequins and metallics with denim (think this tunic with the Madewell kick flares) or something more classic like a white button down (think, Sezane Max shirt with the sequin shorts). Also this lurex cardigan is currently sitting in my cart. The price is right and I just think it’s just so pretty, will be great over dresses or worn alone with denim.


As someone who doesn’t normally lean into flashy pieces, I do have to say that I’m loving this trend when adding accessories to a look. There’s something about a good metallic silver ballet flat that I will always be drawn to, especially these ones from Proenza Schouler. If you really want to mix up some metals, I think this Ulla Johnson midi skirt would pair so well with these mary janes or this snake embossed belt. I love that we’re starting to lean in to more unexpected pairings!!

    I’m sorry to comment but long time daily reader and I adore you! But the format on these posts is too much back and forth for me.

      Hi Annie, thanks for telling me. I’m sorry that you feel that way! We spend a LOT of time making the shopping grids, could I ask what makes them too much back and forth? They’re meant to be convenient and easy to shop. Everything in the main graphic is always linked (and described) in the grid below. These posts take us several hours to finish so I’m really curious to know what makes them so cumbersome for you. Are you on desktop or mobile?
