How To Wear Metallic Pants Even When Your Day Job Isn't "Rock Star"

We love a little sparkle and glitz–but we’ll be honest: when we first saw metallic pants hit the runways (and streets), we couldn’t help but think of robots and Avatars. Then, we saw the ever-adventerous Man Repeller wear them on her blog (twice!) and then we started seeing them virtually everywhere, which got us thinking..can we actually pull these off?

The answer, we decided, (after much perusal of the world wide web and the skinny mirror), is yes. How? By keeping it simple everywhere else.

1. Wear with a solid tee or top. We love how metallic pants look with a plain white tee, but if you must get any more fancy than that, we recommend a black or neutral tank.

2. Throw on some classic kicks: Whether you choose to wear them with your favorite sky-high black pumps, or a pair of ballet flats, keep your shoes classic and mono-tone.

3. Chill on the bling. Man Repeller may wear these with a zillion layered necklaces, but for us average folk, we recommend letting the pants sparkle and avoiding over-accessorizing.

Now that you know how to wear them:
