One of the biggest runway trends this season are shiny materials. It doesn’t matter if we’re talking about shoes, jackets, bags or dresses – designers definitely were inspired by the sparkle. Dressed up with chunky heels and a blouse, or down with a hoodie or T-shirt, the nostalgic fabric can inject some excitement into your spring looks.

When I look at all those shiny pieces, I feel like I am some kind of cyber space agent, coming from Mars and exploring the Earth. And let’s be honest: this planet here could definitely use some more shiny colors. Summer’s manifestation of the plastic trend is to go colored in candy-whipped hues. Black, white. pastel pink, transparent, lime green, red… What do you think of this shining rainbow?

Patent leather trend can be as well intimidating, especially since it often calls to mind images of the ’80s or The Matrix. So, here are a couple of tips for pulling off this tricky yet cool trend:
- Start small: If you’re afraid to venture into the world of patent clothing, consider trying patent shoes/ankle boots or a patent bag to start off. If you feel comfortable with the trend, then feel free to go bolder with outerwear, a skirt, or pants.
- Keep it simple: By wearing the patent pieces keep the rest of your look simple, stick with neutrals and subdued colors. That it’s the easiest way not only to ease into the trend, but also to keep it fashionable rather than over-the-top.
- Only wear one patent piece per outfit: This is themost important rule when it comes to wearing patent, and I can’t stress it enough! Patent has the power to make quite a statement — and, with great power comes great responsibility. So, when it comes to wearing patent, always keep in mind that less is more, and you’re guaranteed to look amazing!
