After fashion week ended and all our favorite street style stars went back to their respective cities, they brought back a certain trend we can’t get enough of: Metallic pieces that make us all feel like the shining stars we are. A hint of metallic gold, silver, or even blue gives an outfit more interest and style points like no other. And while this eye-catching style may seem intimidating, we’re here to tell you that anyone can wear these high-fashion pieces.

The key is to go for a luxe look and keep the fabric from looking like that cheap old New Year’s Eve dress hidden in the back of all our closets. Pair a metallic skirt with a casual button-down or cozy turtleneck sweater for a day in the office, or go bold with statement-making knee-high boots and your favorite plaid miniskirt. Whatever you choose, when looking to freshen up your style for the New Year, you can never go wrong with metallics.

Winter is in full swing, and you’re bundling up to stay warm, but that doesn’t mean you have to pack away your skirts, shorts, and dresses until spring comes around. With a pair of cute tights, you can keep your leg-baring items in your wardrobe rotation. Style them with a midi dress for the perfect winter office look, or update a denim miniskirt for the colder moments. And whether you’re in need of a thermal pair, fishnets, or even tights in a bold color, they add a new dimension to your go-to warm-weather look that makes it winter-ready.

To illustrate how it’s done, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite ensembles featuring tights from some of the most stylish women around the world. With simple, straightforward, and bold iterations, there’s a little something for everyone to try. We also included a few of our current favorite pairs so you can shop different styles. We’ve got you covered—literally.

Over the years, lace has received a bad rap—one associated with the words old-fashioned, frilly, and tired. In your head, there are cool ways to style the fabric that don’t result in looking like a grandmother, but executing those outfit ideas IRL is another story. Ahead, we’ve rounded up the fashion girls who know the freshest ways to style lace that will have you forgetting all negative associations with the material.

In case you haven’t noticed, people are sort of obsessed with what Selena Gomez wears. In fact, there’s even an Instagram account (@selenascloset) dedicated to helping fans source her looks, and it boasts over 300K followers. Gomez also artfully posts many of her favorite looks on her own account, which is currently at 123 million followers and counting. And although she certainly has plenty of high-end designer pieces in her enviable wardrobe, her actual outfit formulas are quite accessible, and she often throws some affordable fast-fashion pieces in with her Louis Vuitton and Vetements.

Being one of the most famous 20-somethings in the world means that your picture is being taken constantly, so there are a lot of looks for us to choose from, but the ones below that Gomez and her stylist, Kate Young, put together have stuck with us and are just begging to be copied. So without further ado…

The Victorians weren’t exactly known for their trendy fashion sense. But the emergence of “New Victorian” takes the lustrous fabrics, high collars, and lace accents of the 1800s and marries them with modern sensibilities (hello, ankles… and a whole lot more). The result is a playful trend to delight in this season — rich velvets, exaggerated sleeves, and frilled details pair perfectly with the frozen romance of December. Move over, minimalism.
