Wearing a silver, copper, gold, bronze or pewter jacket is not for everyone, but for the magpies who bat for Team Metallic, here’s some inspiration. You can wear a metallic jacket in a dressy or casual way. Tone it down by wearing it with neutrals, low contrast separates, earth tones, and casual elements like denim, utility bottoms, t-shirts, fashion sneakers, tough boots, and sporty silhouettes. 

Onto some outfit ideas.

2. Utility Pretty

A pair of earthy pleated joggers with a utility vibe is paired with a tucked and sleek fitted black top. Dainty and pretty black pointy toe flats match the top, and create a fun juxtaposition with the casualness of the pants. A sporty silver bomber tops off the look in a nonchalant and show-stopping way. Fun that the zipper on the sleeve of the bomber matches the earthy pants. Silver hoops match the jacket. I see a black bag as a finishing touch.

2. Gold Blazer with Brown

This is a dressier look, yet the oversized fit and scrunched sleeves of the gold blazer add an effective relaxed touch. The blazer tops a column of brown which is created by pairing brown bottoms with a brown top. They aren’t exactly the same colour, but work well enough to create a column. Brown heeled sandals complete the dressy look. Think dressy brown flats, loafers, oxfords, pumps or boots if strappy sandals aren’t your thing.

3. Silver Anorak and Athleisure

Anoraks are very casual, and look awfully interesting and unexpected in a metallic. Here, a neon knitted top is paired with black track pants. Sporty comfort sandals in black and white pick up the black and white of the the pants. A sliver anorak amps up the look and makes a statement. The dressy white bag picks up the white in the outfit and creates a jarring yet, to my eye, fun addition.

4. Bronze and Burgundy

And last, a textured bronze blazer gives the illusion that it’s patterned because it’s iridescent. It tops a column of burgundy which can be made up of burgundy separates, or a burgundy dress. The burgundy is fantastic with the model’s red hair. Strappy black heeled sandals finish off the look, but you can sub those with burgundy pumps, boots, flats, loafers or caged sandals. Gold jewellery finishes off the look.
