Other Metallic Options
If you want to shimmer and shine, but find that gold is too bright for you, try a silver dress instead. It's a bit more understated, but still offers plenty of sparkle. For example, this Grecian-inspired, one-shoulder silver dress is a great option. Featuring a flattering a-line silhouette, the dress shows off subtle chevron stripes in a silver metallic pattern.
It comes in sizes 3 to 13 and retails for approximately $100, making it a great budget option.
In addition to gold or silver, keep in mind that there are other metallic dresses to choose from. You can buy just about any color you want in metallic fabric, or try a combination dress where the bodice is metallic but the skirt is the color of your choice. For old Hollywood style glamour, go for a pearlized dress.
Regardless of which look you choose, give yourself plenty of time to find that perfect dress. Remember that if you wear a metallic dress, your accessories should be understated so as not to make the ensemble look gaudy.
