3 Clever Ways to Mix Metal, A La Solange Knowles

One of the reasons Solange's look works so well is because she anchors it with a neutral color — in this case, black. For an instant statement-making outfit, pair a gold and silver tee with skinny black leather pants, then add strappy sandals and a Solange-style sweep of bright lipstick.

For a fancier affair, we love the look of a gold and silver dress with dark navy heels — it screams "I'm a good time" without being too over-the-top. You'll definitely be the life of the party.

Get the most out of a gold and silver pencil skirt by tucking in a simple black tank into it. Add an eye-catching statement necklace and metallic heels for extra pop.

When we saw Solange Knowles's expert way of wearing gold and silver together, we instantly recognized a huge holiday trend. The style setter stepped out for the 2012 Angel Ball recently in a stunning gold and silver gown by Badgley Mischka, which she paired with a sweep of red-orange lipstick. The dress, with its gorgeous color palette and dangerously low v-neck, played perfectly with Solange's skin tone and set in motion a trend that we knew we had to copy for party season. Whatever your grandma told you about mixing metals back in the day is no longer applicable - there really are no rules when it comes to pairing silver and gold, and experimentation is key. We're helping you get started by putting together three distinct ways to mix metals for your upcoming holiday fetes. Click through to see and shop them now.
