dotdress.JPGI saw this dress in Dorothy Perkins at the weekend and it looks even nicer up close (click on the image for close-up). Subtle metallics are still big for the summer, and having seen what's on the catwalks for Autumn/Winter we'll still all be wearing silvers, bronzes and golds for months to come. See after the jump for two outfit ideas.

A dressy jacket makes the dress perfect for a night out. Patent pumps bring a different texture to the outfit and the purse adds interest.
Faux Astrakhan jacket Wallis, reduced to £30. Amelia wedges Kurt Geiger, £50. Glitter floral clutch Accessorize, £28.


Dressing down metallics using flesh tones, taupe and mushroom is a modern way of wearing sparkle. The white jeans and pumps keep the outfit looking fresh and the gun earrings are a great conversation piece.
