How To Wear Metallic Trousers + Our Top Faves!

Metallic trousers are going to be a BIG trend this year.

It’s a style that can look amazing on, but only if worn with the right items.

There’s a few tricks to keep in mind when it comes to styling metallic trousers and today we are going to show you what those are!

Keep It Simple

First of all, when wearing metallic trousers, always keep the rest of the look as simple as possible. This means no patterned tops, no statement jewellery pieces, no overly-embellished heels, and no loud colours.

The trousers are the statement piece in this look so tone everything else way down. Wear them with plain colours, plain heels, and keep jewellery subtle. You can’t go wrong if you follow this rule! 

Elle McPherson is a big fan of silver metallic trousers (this was the main colour at the S/S 16 shows) and she almost always wears hers with a plain dark grey top and black heels.

Light Or Dark?

If you want to sport metallic trousers but don’t like your legs or are self-conscious of your calves, then don’t go for a light, bright metallic, go for a darker shade of metallic.

Remember, bright colours draw attention so if in doubt, go for a darker shade.

How Much Metallic?


Some, but not everyone (not even the most stylish of celebs) can successfully pull off the super-bright metallic-on-metallic look i.e. metallic trousers with a metallic top/jacket, so if you’re unsure, then play it safe by sticking to just one item of metallic fabulousness, or instead opt for a co-ord set that has a subtle metallic hint running through it, like what Cara Delevigne is wearing above.

If you want to go for a similar look, we have included a dark metallic co-ord set below.
