When getting dressed each morning, we often gravitate toward our closet staples. Shying away from bright and bold pieces means there's no risk of committing fashion faux pas. Recently though, we’ve overcome our fear—with metallics. Often reserved for nighttime affairs, we have been bringing metallics everywhere, from the office to an afternoon of shopping to Sunday brunch. Below, we’ve rounded up three ways to start incorporating metallics into your wardrobe. Consider it proof that it's possible to shine during the day and night.
