3 Top Tips for Styling Metallic dresses

Nov 22, 2018

With the festive party season just on the horizon, Kelsey Rose is in full swing when it comes to sparkle, shine and glitter – we love it! We couldn’t resist putting several metallic dresses in our latest bridesmaids collection – but the fun needn’t stop there! So many of our Kelsey Rose bridesmaids get in back in touch and rave about how they were able to wear their Kelsey Rose dresses again and again – especially the glittery ones! They’re just meant to be backlit by softly twinkling fairy lights and bubbling champagne. But what do you wear them with? How do you style them for nighttime and for daytime events? Kelsey Rose, as always, has got your back! Our Kelsey Rose fashion stylists have put together three top tips to help you keep your Kelsey Rose dress in full sparkle and shimmer again and again.

  1. Be The Top Bridesmaid of the Day

Kelsey Rose couldn’t not do a bridesmaids look! We tried and we just couldn’t resist. Our soft metallic bridesmaids dresses from the 2019 collection were just meant to offset a beautiful and demure Kelsey Rose wedding dress and make the whole bridal party look chic and modern, bringing an instant party and fairytale vibe. We’ve picked out this gorgeous Kelsey Rose bridal gown in crepe and lace that would be perfectly accentuated by a posse of sparkling bridesmaids! Offset the clean lines of this wedding dress with the sophistication and elegance of this glittering Kelsey Rose halter neck dress. This metallic crepon is a new addition for Kelsey Rose 2019. Beautifully crafted, this elegant style features a halter neck with skinny straps and enhanced waist. The floor skimming skirt completes this elegant look. Pair with dramatic winged eyeliner and delicate blush for a fresh and clean look that will seamlessly go from day to night. Gently sparkling earrings and a natty glittering manicure will complete the look.

2. Christmas Party Diva

Now we don’t know about you, but when we get invited to a formal black tie do with the office for Christmas we like to go all out, and what better way to make an impression and get a step towards that promotion than an elegant yet bold metallic dress? Crafted in soft metallic jersey, this dress is Grecian style updated for 2019. In a divine shade of shimmery rose quartz, this dress features a pleated wrap neckline and careful pleats falling from the waist. This dress moves beautifully, with added shimmer as the metallic fabric catches the light.  We like to take it all the way and go vampy for our grown up nighttime look. Take this rose metallic Kelsey Rose dress and give it a touch of edge with a black manicure, black eye shadow – but not too much, we want cutting edge sophistication not a panda! Black delicate bracelets and a black velvet pair of heeled pumps will take this dress from demure wall flower to executive boss in no time!

3. Daytime Dream Event

Now we know that the days are getting shorter by the minute but if you like to plan ahead to the summer or you have a miracle black tie daytime event coming up, try adding some sparkle and shine to it, it will enhance your natural complexion and give you a boost of confidence and radiance. We’ve picked out this Kelsey Rose with a contemporary twist on classic 1920’s style, this metallic crepon dress is simply sensational. A softly draped neckline and cap sleeves offer relaxed sophistication, while the metallic sheen catches the light just beautifully. The cap sleeves add an element of day time sophistication that would work well with a contrasting bejwelled clutch and hoop earrings. Think statement with your jewellery; just a few key pieces that will leave an impression without overwhelming the beauty of the dress and style.
