We are all magpies attracted to shine and sparkle. Whether the beauty of nature in sunlight across rippling water or the sparkle of gems in a pretty jewel. It’s a universal language we share when we look up at the night sky. Not only does it work for jewellery but a pair of shoes or a bag. Think about it. What colour does not go with gold or silver? What will brighten your mood on a gloomy day? What shines on a sunny one? Metallics work 52 weeks of the year 24 hours a day. I urge you the next time you need a new pair of shoes, even trainers, or a bag go for the metallic option.
