Style Sleuth: High-Octane Shine

July 23, 2012 • Magazine, Style Sleuth

There are so many trends right now it might be confusing to decide which one you would like to pick first. You want to stand out, but you don’t want to look like a total idiot. You want a special piece, but you don’t want it to be completely out of place in three months. Well, I have a solution to your problem: foil print!

Foil print adds shine to any piece of clothing without being completely in-your-face. Add in a bit of floral print and it brings in a touch of ladylike charm without being over-the-top. It’s easy to add in an accessory with shine to any outfit but if you really want to turn heads, try a sleek pair of floral print jeans or a brocade miniskirt.

If you have an easy-going workplace, you might be able to try this trend, but it could be a bit much for everyday attire. Foil prints like these are best left for the nightlife. The shine of these pieces will help you stand out in a sea of bandage dresses and miniskirts. This is a trend to wear year-round! A piece with high shine is the perfect addition to  your stylish wardrobe!
