Trend Alert: Silver Enters Neutral Territory

Silver may mean second place when it comes to Olympic medals, but it’s taking first as a hot neutral for Spring 2007. Forget blah black and hard-to-keep-clean white. When temperatures rise, pick shades of this sparkly metallic, from bright, polished silver to deep gunmetal.

Pair chunky jewelry and this season’s bright flats with silver apparel. Adam + Eve Button-Front Dress ($465) is a veritable blank canvas for the season’s hottest trends. Pair Tufi Duek silver deep v-neck ‘Sarah’ top ($138) with dark, skinny jeans and chunky heel for a night out with the girls. And try Mint’s metallic shorts ($300) if you’ve got gams you want to show off after a winter’s worth of treadmill work.


You can’t go wrong with simple silver accessories, either. Don’t limit your silver spectrum to jewelry: handbags and shoes are making the leap to metallics, too. If you’ve totally committed to silver, consider shelling out for a good, goes-with-everything bag. Yves Saint Laurent’s pewter metallic tote ($1,595) is pricey but perfect for adding a little shine.

Remember, when picking metallics to use as neutrals, it’s almost always better to choose a hint of sheen over all-out garish sparkle. Think subtle shine, not Studio 54, and you’ll be in tip-top silver shape.
