If you think metallics should be confined to Christmas party dressing think again! For it's never been cooler to rock a little razzle-dazzle, just ask Cat Deeley whose gleam-tastic trousers initially divided the Grazia office this week...but after much debate we deemed her high-shine red carpet look chic rather than eek! It was Cat's simple black blouse and pointy courts that saved her outfit from space-age territory, for when it comes to metallics- less is most definitely more!
So, how do you pull off the metallics trend without looking like a disco ball or sci-fi film extra? Here are our foolproof tips...

But you don't have to go full throttle to get involved in the metallics trend... as expertly demonstrated by Kate Middleton and Poppy Delevigne, a pair of gold or silver shoes are ample sparkle for a glam evening look, or why not try a sparkly sequin cover-up a la Olivia Palermo, her French Connection one is ideal for throwing over daytime outfits when the sun goes down, and festival looks alike.
