They say fashion comes and goes, but style is everlasting. Likewise, they say music adapts to the times, but heavy metal is immortal. Metal symbolizes strength, tenacity, and refinement in similar ways fashion pieces and makeup products do. Like fabric is for fashion, metal creates striking pieces through its malleability.
From metallics to sequins, this week’s guide spotlights a diverse range of products that embody all the qualities of shiny metals, such as silver, platinum, copper, and gold. Metallics bring the same powerful energy to fashion and beauty as metal does when it interacts with electricity. Feel free to head-bang along to the suggestions below.
