When you go for a metallic crop top, remember that it’s already the star of the show. So balance the look by way of a black skirt for an evening look. Might be predictable but sometimes, easy chic does it for us!

If you’re the daring kind, go all out with metallics. Wear your metallic top with a pencil fit metallic skirt. But make sure you choose sparkly separates that are easy on the eyes instead of overtly gaudy.

BB recommends wearing this with dewy skin and dollops of mascara.

Who says metallics are reserved for the night? Wear them during the day but cover up by throwing on a denim jacket and white pants to bring an air of simplicity to the look.
