Metallics, the Perfect Neutral

From shoes, belts, handbags, and jewelry, the metallic trend is everywhere. Metals in assorted patinas from rose gold to gunmetal possess the mercurial ability to mesh effortlessly with any color palette. Could metallic be the new neutral? We think so.

Be it a subtle pastel and silver pairing or a bold, iconic gold-on-black statement, metallics bring a modern sophistication and chic elegance to any outfit. Keep scrolling to discover all the chameleon personalities of these super-cool hues.

Metallics pair with just about anything, look great year-round, and make getting dressed — and packed for a trip — a breeze. Wear metallic neutrals with black, brown, gray, as well as vibrant colors. The best neutrals, in my opinion, are metallics.

What color metallic should you go with, you ask? I think everyone needs some gold and some silver in their wardrobe, but typically each person prefers one over the other. For instance, I primarily wear gold, but keep a few pieces of silver jewelry on hand in case I need silver to pair with grays, etc.

And yes, it is also okay to mix up your metals! Try mixing gold and rose gold or gold and silver.

After collaborating with friends on a seasonal pop-up consignment sale in Alexandria, my passion for fashion grew into designing a dress line with the goal of expanding to other clothing and opening a retail store to include similar designers with small production lines ~ Twist Boutique was born. A former lobbyist, I have neither a retail nor fashion designing background, but I didn’t let that deter me from diving head first into this endeavor. I hope to satisfy our savvy customers with my passion for combining new and consignment clothing and accessories, home furnishings, and gifts.

Twist Boutique recognizes that style seekers want one-of-a kind pieces, whether it's clothing, accessories, home furnishings or gifts, and the experience that goes along with finding them. Women are making smarter choices when shopping to ensure they don't compromise quality for price. For this reason, owner Kristen Moore created Twist to combine her passion for new and resale clothing and accessories to ensure varying price points to satisfy customer needs and desires.
