Let it shine

Adding texture and shine to your ensemble this AW is another hot trend, so to ensure your wardrobe is up to date and that you are fashioning the must-have metallic trend you need  to be prepared to invest in a few garments to make your outfit shine.   It is actually an easy trend to achieve as there is a whole array of different garments on offer in the shops, from t-shirts or shirts with a subtle sequin or metallic trim to entire t-shirts, leggings and jeans that offer a metallic glow. If you are not a fan of shiny or metallic garments, don't despair, you can add a little shine to your outfit by simply accessorizing with a glittery clutch, some shimmery pumps or some metallic nail varnish. Whatever your style, there is something out there to help you add a little shine to your closet and help you sparkle this season. 

I have taken a look at what is currently on offer from some of our favourite high street retailers so check them out below and take your pick, but don't forget to shine this weekend.
