Metallic Dresses Fall 2010 Fall ’10: High Glam Metallic Dresses

What is there to say about all things metallic?  It’s everywhere of course! Whether it is seen on tanks, jackets, leggings, & skirts – trend forecasters and designers can’t seem to get enough.  It’s no big secret that metallic dresses are indeed show stoppers all by themselves, without being accompanied by accessories.  Out of all of the Fall 2010 RTW collection, Balmain has taken center stage on the trend – giving many of us potential red carpet looks that may be seen on celebrities for the upcoming future. However, while many of us are not celebrities, so let’s adapt to the trend on a more modest note.

Now in 2011, the Metallic trend continues, stronger than ever!!

From celebrities on the red carpet to their normal chores, and to the runways across the globe, metal continues to be the inspiration of many designers and its not only restricted to clothing, but also bags, shoes, belts etc!
