The latest fashion trend shows that heavy metal is not just a style of music. From shoes to collars to bags, metallic accents are sweeping your closets and accessorizing everything back to life. The sleek style is part futuristic chic, part warrior princess, and totally on trend. In a clutch, the extra weight won’t wear you down, whereas in a tote, it would be a real workout! So style these mini bags with LBDs or go in the unexpected direction and pair them with colorful florals. Just remember to avoid metal detectors!
