ADD SHIMMER TO YOUR STYLE


Shimmer and shine are not just reserved for holidays, they're the perfect pick-me-up for any wardrobe in any season. Shimmer adds a playfulness to your everyday outfits and says you're ready for fun.

On Fashionplanet, between the continents of Matte and Sequins, there is a happy land called Shimmer. Here on Earth, itt's a Swinging 6ixties style secret that metallics are the "new neutrals" and can be added to any outfit.


Metallics have re-emerged as a strong fashion trend. In fact, I predict that shine and shimmer in blouses, skirts, and accessories are going to be with us for a long, long time.


Gold + silver = shimmer!

A shimmery gold and silver mock turtleneck top with a geometric pattern is a great piece to build from. Layer on a shimmery jacket and a long, gold pendant necklace to add dimension to the outfit. Or, you can neutralize the look with a long, taupe duster sweater.


Don't be shy. You can layer shiny clothes and still end up with a classic, elegant look.

Nothing says shimmer like a basic gold T-shirt. Gold is a fantastic colour too often ignored in my opinion. Gold and silver are neutrals that can be matched with so many colours — think about gold with red, or silver with orange, or gold with gold!


The rose gold-and-black boyfriend blazer has an 1980s vibe with push-up sleeves, a strong shoulder, and large pockets. Somehow it straddles the line between slouchy and sleek with the shimmer adding panache.

A brown, shimmery blouse with a round neck and puffed sleeves pairs beautifully with neutral trousers. The ensemble is punctuated by a gold-and-black belt.


Drench your senses with shimmery clothes to lift your spirits and to bring you joy.
