Bronze, Silver & Gold – Sassy Mama loves metallics!
It’s time to shine! Spring/Summer 2016 is all about metallics in your wardrobe or as part of your interior design scheme, from cool silver to warm gold. If you’re a bit of a magpie (like me) then this is one trend you’ll want to follow. And no, we’re not talking head to toe shimmer. A metallic accessory is enough, and can take you from day to night, office to party in a (lustrous) flash. Here are our top picks for adding that bit of sparkle and shine.
1. Calvin Klein icons metallic bikini, approximately AED 600 at Net-A-Porter
As golden as the sand we hope to be lying on this summer – the top has adjustable straps and removable padding and the bottoms are super flattering. Wear with mirrored shades and you’ll be the belle of the beach.
2. Printed cushion cover, AED 49 at H&M Home
I’m a pineapple fan – whether on my plate or printed on a cushion cover, this spiky fruit is scrummy!
3. Superga metallic sneakers, AED 330 at Level Shoes
The iconic sneaker in metallic? Yes please! Pair with jeans, shorts, skirts – they’re the perfect summer shoe.
4. Metallic woven storage basket, approximately AED 180 at West Elm
Sparkly storage. Crafted of recycled foils, including candy wrappers (!), this basket is the most stylish way to stow your laundry.
5. Embossed metallic leather tote, AED 399 at Zara
Nubuck leather shoulder bag that’ll see you sparkle your way from the beach to a lunch date (and has plenty of room for all those kiddie essentials too!).
6. Reiss metallic a-symetric t-shirt, approximately AED 330 at ASOS
A simple shiny beautifully cut t-shirt that’ll jazz up a pair of jeans perfectly. And with free shipping – it would be silly not to complete the look with a new pair of shoes and other wardrobe updates right!?
7. Tom Ford cream and powder eye colours, approximately AED 220 at Sephora
A combo of a base eye colour and sparkly powder for extra dramatic eyes – these colours say tropical islands and would look gorgeous on sun kissed skin.
8. Smith & Cult ‘Dirty Baby’ nail colour, available at Kure Beauty & Spa
The nail brand that’s taking the beauty world by storm – not only are the colours beautiful but the exclusive 5-Free formula is formulated without Dibutyl, Phthalate, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor. Perfect for adding some razzle-dazzle to your day. Buy it at Kure Beauty & Spa in Jumeirah – or better still – book in for one of their fabulous mani-pedis!
It’s time to shop and shimmer mamas!
