 Metallic is a trend with certified staying power, so its time to invest in some shine.

If you’re a little skeptical about going full on bacofoil then gently dip your toes into the trend with accessories. Master the light with these Vero Moda sunnies, which feature mirrored edging to add a subtle but oh so on trend hint of metal. Pair with a piece of mechanical beauty in the form of the Olivia Burton Chrono Racer watch (£155).

 Give your wrist the Midas touch with a beautiful handmade aluminium or copper bangle from Oswell and Rose.

 Embrace futuristic glam with the Dream Sister Jane Reflections Skater Dress. Style this beauty a la Sarah with the Sol Sana Porter Heels, which feature a sprinkling of ‘punk glitter’ in the form of metallic studs (£120). Combined with soft taupe suede, the hardware embellishment adds just the right amount of edge to these super comfortable heels.

 Add warmth and sheen to your home with a Parkminster tin candle, available in a selection of delectable scents. If you want to bring more metallic into your home but you’re nervous about making any drastic shimmering changes, then use picture frames as a starting point. We have a bevvy of prints from Lettterbox Lane and Basil & Ford (£15-£28), which would all look fab with a molten finish. Try a copper or mirrored frame for a refined gilded look.

Bring understated opulence to your outfit with the Somedays Lovin Tambourine dress (£129) and Hudson Sherbert sandals (£80). Pairing metallic with crisp white creates a fresh and balanced look.

Designed in New York and 100% handcrafted in Spain, Alejandrinas are the traditional shoe with ultimate style kudos. The Capri is made of metallic leather and hits the rose gold trend. Amazingly comfortable, these beauts will be your go-to summer shoe.

The Bell Keyring from Bell&Fox (£19) is the beautiful brand’s signature accessory. The gunmetal bell and chain makes a great addition to your bag too.

Look no further than Blu Studios for metallic simplicity at its best. This sumptuous British brand specialise in hand made leather bags and accessories, striving to combine ‘contemporary luxury with everyday wearability’. Add a Galactic touch to your outfit with the Metallic Leather Backpack (£160) or a flash of molten metal with the Metallic Leather Midi Clutch (£60).

There’s no need to save lustrous shine for after dark, pop into WSd HQ to get your shine on!
