Summer Trend: Daytime Metallics

Metallics have usually been reserved for a night out on the town or a holiday event, but for Spring/Summer this year lots of designers showed the glitzy gold & silver for daytime (remember Fashion Week wayyyy back in February?). See how you can take on the trend this summer, below:

Stretch Lace Dress- Free People sz S $32
