The future has arrived. Last February, when the 2017 fall/winter collections were first debuted during fashion week, it was clear that designers were decidedly about futurism. Head-to-toe metallic silver looks trotted down the runway like a single file line of space-bound cadets boarding a rocket. These futuristic ensembles were seen at Chanel, Balenciaga, Isabel Marant, Miu Miu and more. Now that we have entered the cooler seasons, I too am all about silver. However, I don’t see being completely wrapped in tinfoil-looking fabrics to be the most practical for everyday style… unless you’re an astronaut.
That said, I thought I’d share a more wearable way to embrace the futuristic metallic trend this season. To begin, find a pair of cropped denim jeans that are a good fit and will show off a set of silver booties (my ‘moon boots’ are by Saint Laurent from last year so I’ve included a selection of currently available boots at the very bottom of the page). I’ve chosen denim by Articles of Society because they have a stretchy fit and are typically priced below $100. Next, add a neutral-colored knit. I’ve been living in this black turtleneck with cutouts lately. Sweaters with unexpected cutouts are a great way to add edge to any basic look. Then, make the look lift-off-ready with a high-shine, silver bomber or puffer jacket. Lastly, add accessories that will complete your mission to defy gravity like these exaggerated cat eye sunglasses and leather star gloves.
Below, you can see more of this look, as well as styling options that’ll elevate any casual outfit into another galaxy.
