A spring/summer favourite, the metallic jacket is making a statement on runways. While 3.1 Phillip Lim gave it an acid-washed makeover, Marc by Marc Jacobs paired it with matching metallic pants, and Altuzarra went all out with its super-shiny silver blazer. But you don’t have to restrict the sparkle to nighttime. We show you how to tone down a metallic jacket and wear it to the office or out for brunch.
Mix up the glam quotient of the metallic jacket with understated separates – rolled-up boyfriend jeans, pool sliders and a pair of funky coloured sunglasses.

If you’re lucky enough to not have a corporate dress code, the metallic jacket is a great way to make an impression. Layer it with a classic Oxford shirt and a pencil skirt. Match the sheen on your jacket with a pair of metallic loafers, and you’re ready for work – and after-hours cocktails.
