Get the Look: Liu Wen’s Mixed Metallics

Bored of little black dresses but still want to show a little skin? Perennial lover of pants, Liu Wen, ditched the dress in favour of a jumpsuit at God's Love 2012 Golden Hearts Celebration, pulling together an evening look that's polished without being prissy. The black jumpsuit provides a simple base colour on which to play around with different metallics and clashing hues. Once you've got the foundations right (try a bustier-and-trousers combo if jumpsuits aren't your jam) then get mixing with subtle flashes of both gold and silver. 

Take a cue from Wen and choose metallic details that are delicate and feminine. A chain-strap handbag, gold belt, and classic square link watch add some shine without being too bling-bling, and a simple pair of strappy gold or silver heels would balance this outfit perfectly. Keep makeup sheer and glossy, and don't be afraid to clash your handbag and your lipstick.
