Metallic NYE

Want to look good for a night on the town? Well nothing says sexy like a plunging neck line, but just remember to keep it classy ladies! This ASOS Metallic Wrap Dress ($80) is sexy with a plunging neckline but keeps it modest with the 3 quarter sleeves and a bit of a ruffle in the front. Plus the cooper coloring looks on lots of different skin tones. Body-con dresses are another feel sexy dress. Of course not all of us can pull off a body-con dress but one that can be flattering on curvy girls is the Nasty Gal Shine On Dress ($68). The ruched and twist on this dress can hit you in all the right places showing off your body! Since this dress is so stand out, like any stand out dress, stick with simple sleek accessories. When doing metallics still with black accessories especially when you aren't sure about your pairing since matching metallic with metallic can be tricky. If you are feeling daring try and pair up you metallic dress with a sparkling accessory like the Topshop Amethyst Multi Glitter Boots ($140).

Metallic Party Dress

Want to be the show stopper at your office party without being to overboard? A metallic dress will get you noticed if you pick the right one. Remember to keep your look sophisticated and smart. And nothing says elegant like a body flattering t-shirt dress like Bcbgeneration Metallic Low-Back Dress ($78). The color is sleek and so is the cut of the dress. The low back gives it a hint of sexiness but without baring your whole back. With a dress like this you can pair it up with a belt or leave it as is. Accessories with a long sleeve dress should be kept to a minimum especially since a dress like this is very minimal. A pair of earrings, a stand out ring, a simple envelope clutch, and a nude pair of shoes is all you need. Want to show some neck? Go for a deep V-neck line, don't go to plungy. Dresses like the Calvin Klein Metallic shift dress ($80) and the ASOS Tfnc Metallic Pleated Cross Over Midi Dress ($81) are casual and appropriate work related dresses without being frumpy.With a cooperish dress you can do gold accessories like the Zara Sequinned WalletCarolee LUX Status Links Gold Bracelet ($60) and ($88). If your doing a dress that as some kind of color or shine to it like the ASOS Tfnc Metallic Pleated Cross Over Midi Dress try and follow through with the color that is in it. ASOS has a bit of a silver lining in it so cross it over with some silver accessories like the Michael Antonio Keme - Silver Glitter PU  ($55).
