Eye-catching silver is having a major moment.
With its reflective quality, the color is often worn during the holidays, adding a touch of glamour to everything it’s paired with.
This season, the shimmery shade is more popular than ever thanks to high-end designers, stylish celebs, and Beyoncé’s Renaissance tour.
Celebs are making a statement in silver
Being a bold and attention-grabbing color, silver allows individuals to make a statement and showcase their unique style – no matter the silhouette.
Unlike silver fashions of the past (i.e. sequin gowns, metal mesh and oversize paillettes) the latest styles offer more wearability. Think jeans, jackets and mini skirts.
To celebrate the Swarovski x Skims collaboration Kim Kardashian wore a sleeveless top and matching skirt boasting jagged Swarovski crystals.
She accessorized the look with an anklet bracelet and silver sandals.
Joining Kim in a head-to-toe silver look is Gwen Stefani.
Gwen opted for an all-silver look to receive her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
At the ceremony, all eyes were on the platinum blonde beauty in a long-sleeve Christian Cowan mini dress featuring a star embellished trim.
She completed her rockstar fit with chrome boots by Le Silla and a swipe of lipstick in her signature shade.
Silver is a versatile color that can be incorporated into various styles and outfits.
It can be both edgy and sophisticated, making it adaptable for a range of fashion preferences and occasions.
Charlize Theron was a vision mid-afternoon in silver pants.
For a cool daytime look, the actress toned down her sleek bottoms with tailored separates in neutral colors.
And it’s not just silver clothing causing a stir, silver accessories are also all the rage.
Lizzo elevated the look of her casual hooded sweatshirt with a pair of over-the-knee boots in chrome.
The ‘Truth Hurts’ singer coordinated her boots with a matching Louis Vuitton bag and square sunglasses.
Gwyneth Paltrow got in on the trend with a silver body chain worn over a white dress.
Beyoncé sang her heart out in head-to-toe silver during her Renaissance tour.
The superstar asked attendees of her final tour dates to wear the shade to celebrate her birthday and Virgo season.
‘We’ll surround ourselves in a shimmering human disco ball each night. Everybody mirroring each other’s joy, Virgo season together in the House of Chrome,’ she wrote on an Instagram post.
Bey’s call for silver fashions led to a surge in online searches and purchases of silver items.
Silver’s deeper meaning
Beyond it’s sparkle and shine factor, silver has other powers.
According to colormeanings.com silver is the color of affluence and modernism.
The site states that the shade calms, heals, restores and enlightens the mind, inspiring intuition and reflection and illuminating the way – making an ideal color to wear as we inch closer to the new year.
Will silver look good on you
As a general rule, silver tends to look best on pale skin with a cool undertone.
To find out your undertones, look at the veins on your wrist.
People with cool undertones have blue or purple veins; neutral undertones have blue-green veins; and warm undertones have green or olive veins.
How to wear it
Silver clothing offers just the right amount of pizazz to elevate any wardrobe, regardless of the season.
No need to wait until New Years Eve, we can now embrace our inner disco girl any day of the week.
If wearing it from head to toe is too daring, the shade can be easily mixed into your everyday outfits — in the form of a fun shoe, sleek pants or chunky jewelry.
To make it pop, pair it with black, dark blue, burgundy and cream or white.
