#ThriftyThursday: Styling metallic not Metallica

#ThriftyThursday: This metallic trend is EVERYWHERE. Seriously, if you haven’t noticed it before, you will now! It’s featured in every retailer, television show, and social media outlet. Because I want The Good Life to wear metallic RIGHT, this week I’ve put together a simple look that shows you just how to wear the trend with style and class!

When sweater shopping at the Stonewall location (Lexington), I ran across a $4.29 black beauty! It’s vintage chenille sweater embedded with metallic silver thread. With its oversized fit, it’s perfect for layering. To show you just how easy it is to make something so trendy and edgy, classy and professional, I added a hot pink Talbots button-up underneath. This colorful layer underneath complements with its crisp collar and peeping sleeves. Because the metallic threads are throughout the sweater, adding a color enhances their sheen. I purchased this top for just $3.99 from the Scottsville Road location (Bowling Green). Tip: Whenever you’re needing extra warmth and style, consider layering a button-up!

I’m loving these dark wash Aeropostale jeans because they bring the attention up to the top. Tip: This time of year, I highly suggest heading straight for a dark wash. They’ll coordinate with almost everything in your winter wardrobe! My pair was just a $5.29 purchase from the Glasgow location.

I wore this outfit on a New Year’s Eve tour of French Lick Hotel and Winery. Because of the freezing temps, this black Copper Key ruffled winter coat is my best friend! It’s a life saver and to think I paid just $2.29 from the Campbell Lane location (Bowling Green)!

Don’t be afraid to go for the gold. I wish you all the best in your metallic styling adventures!
