Summer's finally in full swing and therefore, without the excess baggage of winter's layers, now is the time to bring out the most dazzling stand-out pieces you own. This season the best way to boost and upgrade every hot weather wardrobe – from city picnic to beachside bathing - is by adding a molten metallic. Whether you choose a single gold scrunch (yes, really, they're back) or floor length dress, anything with a sparkle or sheen will play a key part this Spring Summer 2014.

We've seen the likes of Altuzarra and Lanvin send rays of silver and gold down the catwalk in soft midi skirts and bolero’s, whilst celebs like Rihanna frolic around on the beach in shiny two piece bikinis. To avoid looking like the tin man – or a homage to the unreachable world cup - we wanted to find you the very best 20 high-shine pieces to ensure you ace this summer trend.
