Holiday Glimmer

First shown for spring summer 2012, this trend continues into the holiday season.
The holiday season get glimmering in gold, silver and bronze.  Evening wear makes a much bolder statement in these shimmering metallics.  Color blocking using metallic and a neutral black, white or gray is also a big trend for the season.  It's a great way to down-play the shock value that some metallics can have.

It's also important to be careful of the silhouettes you choose since these fabrics can emphasize areas of your figure you may not want to draw attention to.  The key is to mix it in a way that it makes the ultimate statement when you walk in the room without looking tacky.  Too much glimmer can also look like you are stuck in the disco era.
