2013 Fashion Trend Forecast: Midas Touch on a Budget
Last year, at the Spring 2013 fashion weeks, designers around the world put the midas touch on, well, everything. Look after look beamed down the runway as metallic dresses, vests, shoes, bags, and more were revealed in NYC, London, Paris, and Milan. Now that the new year is finally here, styles with sheen are ready to become a staple. That’s why we’ve put together this list of budget-friendly ideas to quickly and easily incorporate the rising trend into your day-to-day wardrobe (before everyone else does).
1. Metallic Nail Polish
The cheapest way to go heavy on the metal in 2013 is by painting it on. One little bottle of nail polish will allow you to quite literally add a midas touch to any and all outfits. Gold, silver, and bronze are the obvious color choices, but shimmering shades of emerald and burgundy are also poised to become celeb and fashionista favorites.
2. Metallic Scarf
Long and thin is the way to go if you want a scarf that will help you shine all year. You can tie it around your neck in the colder months to keep warm and around your purse’s handle in the warmer months to look cool. For the most of the moment look, opt for a glowing chiffon or lace fabric.
3. Metallic Watch
It’s time to start a seriously stylish new year, and investing in a metallic timepiece is a fabulous and cost-effective way to do just that. After all, watches are practical, classic accessories that can be worn anywhere and everywhere. A golden and silvery ticker like our new Shamballa Style Crystal Watch will keep you on trend and on schedule through next winter and beyond.
Have a shining and happy new year, ladies.
