How to wear metallics this festive season


Even if you are a bah humbug kind of person, the sheer fact that the holidays encourage you to wear all the sequins, glitter, and metallics are really something we should all get behind. The shops are stacked full of everything shiny, and you can incorporate them into your wardrobe so easily without overdoing it and looking more like a quality street or a strip of tinsel. However, these options are also encouraged. Go big or go home right?! Here's how you style the heavy metals.

DRESS IT UP
