Metallic Fashion Series: Silver Lining

Metallic outfit teen fashion blog

I’m back with the Metallic Series that I interrupted because of FFF (Fab Fifty Friday). Recently I have done two outfits with gold, a silver outfit, and a metallic blue outfit. I love the way metallic look, especially when you stand in the light and all you can do is shine and look glamorous. Plus I’m the type of girl who likes attention, a metallic piece of clothing attracts that attention I’m looking for.

I decided to use a silver short for this outfit to make it a bit more casual. When I saw this shorts, all I could think was I need them! I have lived in warm climates all my life (14 long years), over the years I have come to appreciate shorts and how they keep you cooler. Along with the shorts I added a purple tweed blazer to go on top. I chose this blazer because it has some silver details in it and since it is mostly purple it tones down what could be a shocking silver look with the shorts. The addition of the blazer makes the outfit more elegant and gives unity to the look. The shoes are purple with little details on the front to add some fun to the outfit. The purse is purple as well and it has a cute paisley print which adds some variety. The jewelry is all silver and purple which ties up everything into one piece. I love how purple and silver go together. I love that color combination so much that my room is full of purple, silver, and white.

I can see that growing a teen fashion blog requires lots of dedication and patience. Although I blog because I really enjoy putting outfits together and sharing them with everybody the truth is that I’m also looking to gain followers, not for egotistical reasons but in hopes that a college will notice me and offer me a scholarship. Followers are not coming as fast as a 14-year-old teen would like which can be a little disheartening. The silver lining of the week was that I was chosen as one of the “Brilliant Blogger Set of the Week” by Polyvore.com for my Silver Rights Movement set, which was super exciting and brought a couple of visitors to the site.

Only two more metallic sets to go for this series. Hoping you are enjoying it as much as I am.

Metallic Fashion Series: Silver Rights Movement

Metallic outfit teen fashion blog
As we all know, today is Martin Luther King day.  Martin Luther King inspired people all around the world to stand up for what they believe in and to stick by it. He fought against segregation between blacks and whites and wanted equal rights for people of all races. He led multiple civil rights movements and stood tall for his beliefs. I admire his leadership skills, his confidence, and the ability to move the masses. I decided to do the Silver Rights Movement in honor of Dr. King.
This week I’m starting the first outfit series of my teen fashion blog, the metallic series. I decided to incorporate metallic colors into my outfits because some people get the idea that metallics are too flashy and/or tacky. If you know how to play with metallic colors the right way and don’t put too much you can create a really amazing outfit. I want to show everyone how to incorporate metallics into your closet in a fashionable way. The metallic color in this outfit is silver which can be very modern when appropriately styled. The shape and simplicity of the colors in the skirt make it very modern. The shirt is a black and white fringed sleeveless blouse which is tucked  into the skirt. The shirt is a variation of a tuxedo shirt. To go over the shirt I added a silver blazer to incorporate a little more silver and give the outfit a little edge. The heels are mostly silver with black square outlines and the flats are mostly black with a bit of silver. The jewelry is all silver and black, all the shapes are different which makes the outfit visually interesting. The clutch is ombre, it fades from black to white. The clutch adds more circles to the outfits, yet again adding more shapes. Martin Luther King became a role model to multiple people all over the world. Do you have a role model?
