Marvelous Metallics Shine On

As bright as the sun, metallic accessories gracefully transition from summer to autumn and beyond.

Once you discover the magic of metallics, there’s no need to pack away these shimmering accessories each fall.

Showstoppers under sunny skies in August, lustrous tops, handbags, totes and sandals offer the best of all worlds. They seamlessly navigate from summer Shore fun to fall festivals and tailgate parties. And without much effort, metallic clothing and accessories continue to garner rave reviews when you crave just a bit of sparkle over the holidays.

Best of all, these dazzling darlings can easily transport you from daytime activities to cocktails to dinner. Mix irridescents with cool cotton for a confident, dressed-down look. Layer shiny tops with organic sweaters. Slide into a pair of metallic sandals and instantly amp up your style.

Dare to mix and match as you rediscover your closet. These pieces are ready to shine when you are, and that’s a lot of bang for your fashion buck.
