Metallics are trending for fall. Courtesy of & Other Stories

First came Barbie pink. Then everyone was all about tomato girl summer. Now, in preparation for fall, we're turning our attention to metallics.

Silver, gold and maybe even bronze probably come to mind, but there's more to this trend than medals. Anything with a gleam can be counted in this burgeoning category. Pieces offering an iridescent effect or metallic threads fit the bill.

The key to making it work during daytime is to skip sequins. You don't want to look like you just walked off a red carpet. Favor fall-appropriate items. So no flashy tank tops or shiny shorts. Don't be afraid to mix metallics, though. Topping off silver bottoms with a gold cardigan is not only acceptable, it's encouraged.

Still feeling apprehensive? Try working in metallic footwear or bags. It's a subtler way to embrace the trend.

Here are the top metallic clothing and accessories of the season.
