While your typically autumnal hues, like burgundy, navy and deep olive, aren’t going anywhere this fall, risk-taking trendsetters are introducing a new must-have shade into this season’s wardrobe: high-shine chrome.

Whether it be metallic bags, silver shadows or a chrome crop top, stars like Kylie Jenner, Hailey Baldwin and Bella Hadid have been pulling inspiration from looks we saw at this year’s “Manus x Machina” Met Gala theme for fall. And by the looks of it, these ladies prove metallics need not be saved only for New Year’s Eve.

Instead of gravitating towards a more conservative blacks, grays or whites, celebs are treating this shimmery silver shade as a neutral in both style and beauty choices. Follow these stars’ leads to add a hint of glimmer (or even more) into your fall wardrobe and beauty essentials.


Kylie’s ultra-shiny silver manicure she wore for BFF Jordyn Woods’ birthday celebration gives us some serious nail envy. Test out the metallic trend with a similar shade, like the Amarapura polish from NARS.

The 19-year-old star amped up her look by matching her top to her nails. This flowy tube top adds an unexpected twist to her ensemble.


The Guess model’s cool silver spin on a classic biker jacket makes us want to replace our beloved black leather motos for one like hers — ASAP.


Lucy’s grown-up twist on our beloved tween Limited Too looks was the perfect occasion to add a splash of metallic hues into the mix. Wear a metallic flat like she does here (we’re loving this one from ModCloth) to give your look a cool edge.


Bella rocks anything and everything chrome-colored head-to-toe for her 20th birthday celebration. From her handbag to her sleek eye liner to sandals (not to mention her see-through silver shirt and star-shaped pasties), Bella claimed her place as queen of this shimmery trend with this monochromatic look.
