Trend Spotting with Kim Kardashian: Street Glam

Celebuzz / March 17, 2009

If you’re growing tired of your everyday jeans-and-t-shirt look, I have just the prescription for you: Add a metallic piece to your outfit!

I’m so excited about golds and other metallic materials showing up on the runways, red carpets and the streets. And it’s the perfect way to add glam to your daily wear.

Brands and designers like 3.1 Phillip Lim (which I love!), Baby Phat, Michael Kors and Marc Jacobs have added pieces with sequins and shine to their latest collections.

Notice how this adorable gold sequins mini-dress by Nanette Lapore is dressed down with tights, a knit hat and some fingerless gloves to make the look day-appropriate. You can also see that I added a black tank detail to my strapless gold vintage Thierry Mugler, which makes the look more street-ready.

Another favorite of mine Herve Ledger is getting into the glam. The reflective square panels on this one-armed, body-hugging number seem to take inspiration from a disco ball—but in a very sophisticated way.

Here are some ways to get the sequins-to-street look for less…

  • These super shiny metallic gold skinny jeans by Tripp NYC are also super affordable for only $48. 
  • Believe it or not, Sears clothing has been looking pretty stylish lately. This sequin vest-tank combo is cute and a total steal at just under $10.
  • This gold tube dress from Forever 21 is under $20! Don’t forget to wear your Spanx with this curve-hugging look!

You have no excuse now! I expect to see you all with a touch of glimmer!
