Steal the Show in Silver!

Silver has made its come back!  Until recently people did not wear much silver.  Designer tended to design more garments in gold but over the last few years, silver has exploded on the scene of fashion!  Silver is not the easiest color to wear.  People with darker complexions and darker hair generally look better in shades of silver.  Lea Michele looks absolutely stunning in this platinum couture gown by Marchesa.  And with designers like Marchesa making creations in deeper shades of silver, they are making it easier for all types of skin tones to wear.

A great way to introduce silver in your wardrobe is to pair it with another color.  Silver can wash most people out, so wear a dark colored blouse near your face and pair it with a silver skirt.  Or when wearing a silver cocktail dress, wear a vibrant necklace to break up the silver from your face.  The key is to wear a darker color near your face so you don’t look washed out.

Silver is always a fun accessory!  Ring in the New Year with an emerald green gown and silver accessories.  A pewter purse, jewelry and shoes are always a fun statement and it’s a good way to incorporate silver into your everyday fashion.   Don’t forget your makeup is also an accessory!  A smoky eye always compliments silver clothing and if you really want to stand out, do a radiant red lip to steal the show!  In my opinion, silver is only becoming more popular and fashion forward.  Even if you are not walking the red carpet like Lea Michele, be sure to incorporate silver into your wardrobe because silver is here to stay!
