Metallics are a perfect choice for casual summer wear and it doesn't have to be for a night out on the town. I love this J.Crew metallic pleated cotton strati tank ($110) that's paired effortlessly with a pair of jean shorts. And it doesn't have to be sequins or silk to give it shine. Find fabrics that have a slight sheen to them like the rayon blend Banana Republic Sculptural top below.
Here are more metallic tones for summer:
