Denim Trends: Everyday Metallic

By Ann of Holier than Now

Remember a while back when the Zara gold jeans were making the rounds?  It’s perhaps a bit surprising that the (gold) rush for that item didn’t spark a wave of great metallic denim, but the truth is the perfect premium denim with metallic sheen is hard to come by.

In considering whether it was worth the hunt (and the investment) to buy into a gold, bronze, silver or – dare I wish for it – a rose gold pair, I dug around for street style inspiration and was pleasantly surprised to see interpretations that were positively … everyday.  The right metallic pant can add a focal point to your outfit without being distracting or over the top (which was my initial fear).

Take note of this range of looks:

1) Weekending …. In matte gold denim with a Breton top (I’ve always loved gold and blue together).

2) Business chic … In silver, with a crisp white button down and a classic black pump

3) Urban punk … In rich gold with a broken in leather jacket and combat boots (P.S. this guy is adorable, right?)

4) Off duty indie … In distressed silver with a Baja hoodie and booties


The pair on my hot list (so far) are these Siwy silver jeans ($229), but my eyes are peeled.


Are you a believer in metallic denim for everyday?  Drop a line if you’ve found a great pair!
