Silver For Spring - How To Get The Trendy Look

Spring has officially sprung, and we are trading in our bulky winter coats and moody color palettes for light layers and hues as colorful as the blooming flowers. This season is a welcomed change for many as the sun shines longer and the days begin to warm – we're happy to endure the seasonal allergies that inevitably occur if it means we can wear our favorite sundresses and strappy sandals again. As you tuck away your thermals and transition your wardrobe to the sunnier seasons ahead, keep a watchful eye on emerging trends.

One of the fashion trends that is completely taking over this spring of 2023 is silver. Fashionistas are fully on board the silver train, from shimmering purses to metallic fabrics. With the revival of Y2K-inspired fashion, it's no surprise that silver is back in the spotlight. But after such a long hiatus, it can be hard to remember how to integrate such a bold trend into your outfits. Luckily, The List has curated their favorite five ways to add a little extra silver to your spring fits.

Add a touch of silver to every outfit this spring

Don't save your silver for special occasions — you can rock the shiny trend in your everyday looks with a simple silver tee. @chaddymang posted a video on TikTok of her modeling a Skims top made with an eye-catching silver metallic fabric that hugs each curve in all the right ways. Dress up this tee with an oversized blazer and a satin skirt, or dress it down with a trusty pair of black jeans and a comfy sneaker. 

Make a statement with these metallic pants

We love a versatile clothing item, and TikToker @timerimartinez proved that silver pants are as versatile as they come! This creator shows off nine unique ways to style a pair of shimmering silver trousers for any weather and occasion. We especially loved the black tube top and purse combo and were shocked to see how well the pants paired with an oversized blazer and grey turtleneck. She did stick to a neutral, cool-toned color palette, but we are sure these pants would perfectly accentuate any color of the rainbow. 

Shine like the star you are in a silver dress

According to Vogue, silver dresses dominated the spring 2023 runways, with models rocking metallic maxi dresses and bedazzled two-piece sets. This spring, you don't have to walk the runway to get your hands on this trend, although we're sure you'll feel like a model when you strut down the street in a stunning silver dress. Our jaws totally dropped when @lucillefletcher posted her silver dress find on TikTok. The bodycon style perfectly accentuates her figure, while the trendy cutout on her midriff keeps the garment flirty and modern. Wherever she's rocking this silver dress, she's sure to be the star of the show. 

Move over gold, silver jewelry is back in a big way

It's no secret that people love their gold jewelry. But if the red carpet is any indication, silver is making headlines again after a long hiatus. TikTok creator @bauhausblue created a collection of stunning looks at the 2023 Oscars featuring silver statement jewelry. From Lady Gaga's gorgeous silver chain to Michelle Williams' sparkling silver choker, it's clear that this trend is here to stay. And if you can't retire any of your gold jewelry quite yet, mixing metals is super on trend right now.

You'll be clicking your heels three times in these silver shoes

Talk about a viral trend – silver heels are all the rage on TikTok. User @thiravigah called these Mango slingback shoes "The IT shoes of 2023" in her unboxing video. The sharp pointed-toe and stiletto style heel give us total Y2K vibes, but in a modern way that promises to elevate any outfit. Wear these heels with a wide leg trouser or pair it with your favorite silver dress for a stunning monochrome look. Move over, Dorothy, everyone wants to get their hands on these silver slippers.
