Get ready for some high shine colors this year because glitzy and bright metallics are back in style. With Prabal Gurung’s clever use of metallic purple and Thakoon’s shiny finishes in his Spring/Summer 2012 show, we can’t help but covet for more glossy brilliance.

Throw a little metallic sheen into your wardrobe with these easy to wear pieces for the perfect blend of swank.

Tip: Don’t go overboard with accessories and let the outfit be your fashion statement or play it down with knit sweaters and blazers for a more relaxed semi-formal look.
