Best Fashion Alternative to Diamonds...

Best Fashion Alternative to Diamonds...

You really don't have to be decked in diamonds to shine. Yes, I know diamonds are a girl's best friend, but the price tag usually isn't... A more cost-effective swap for diamonds or gold jewelry is metallic.

The beauty of metallic is that it can be incorporated in so many different ways. There's no need to get carried away and wear a metallic jumpsuit, pumps, and bag. It is what you make it, and you can simply just add a metallic-colored eyeshadow or lipstick.

As I mentioned previously, there are countless ways to add some sparkle. Let's start simple with beauty products before we get progressively into some zanier options (after all, I don't want to scare you away just yet!).

URBAN DECAY Ladies Naked Cherry Eyeshadow Palette Makeup

Bring the perfect pop to your eyes with this Urban Decay Naked Palette. The palate has 12 cherry-hued neutrals ranging from ivory to rose gold to black cherry. Shop this palate at 29% off HERE.

Or for a more flashy makeup metallic style- add a metallic gloss. Clear gloss is so basic anyways!

You would certainly turn some heads with any of these wild lip shades from YSL. Shop YSL beauty up to 37% off HERE.

The most common metallic items are probably bags and wallets, which makes sense if you think about it. A metallic bag adds the perfect amount of that luxe look without going overboard (I think everyone can agree on that!).

BURBERRY Metallic D-ring Wallet

This Burberry leather wallet is not only 61% off, but its silver hue makes it look extra luxurious! It has multiple card slots, a money slot, and a zip pocket. Cute & compact!

COACH Platinum Ladies Mini Skinny ID case

For those looking for a smaller metallic keychain wallet, this is the option for you. At 32% off, this Coach small ID case is crafted from metallic cross-grain leather. It also comes in several other color options in both metallic and matte.

BVLGARI Serpenti Forever Wallets

Last, on the wallet front, we have the Bvlgari pink metallic wallet. This one is definitely my favorite because I adore the color and the iconic Bvlgari snake closure! Oh- and the fact that it is 20% off!

Continuing on the Bvlgari theme, we have a large selection of unique metallic Bvlgari bags- which you can shop up to 37% off HERE.

For a unique metallic addition, try incorporating a metallic-colored belt, like the Prada seatbelt style below. After all, nothing says luxury fashion like something from Prada!

Pieces that will make a statement

I think we are officially ready to get to the crazy and wild metallic designs I warned you about at the beginning of this post. You know what they say go big or go home. These pieces do that and more!

SAINT LAURENT Bianca Striped Sandals

Between the metallic, the stripes, and the chunky heel- there is A LOT to unpack with these heels. But really, in the best way possible. Saint Laurent truly outdid themselves with these! Pair these with a simple black dress, and your outfit just went from boring to WOW. And today, you can save 43% on these bad boys!

SAINT LAURENT Ladies Gold Bedford Sneakers

If you are on the hunt for the perfect pair of shiny sneaks, look no further... At 35% off, these would elevate just about any outfit! These are the perfect mix of comfy and stylish!

VALENTINO GARAVANI Rockstud Open Low-top Sneakers

If a full-fledged metallic sneaker is too much for you, go for a metallic stripe. The thick gold stripe on these, plus the signature Valentino pyramid studs at the heel = perfection!

For those up to the challenge...

Last but not least, I present several of the craziest metallic dresses I've ever seen before. I want to applaud Burberry, In The Mood For Love for venturing out of the "basic box." These two brands really went to town on these metallic dresses, but I fully support it!

Anyone can pull off metallic... that is, as long as you don't mind turning some heads! So are you up for the challenge?
