Trend Spotting: Metallic Foil Sweaters

Shine on in one of these cozy, opulent knits.

For centuries, gold and other precious metals have symbolized power, prestige, and enduring prosperity. So perhaps today’s lackluster economy explains why so many designers are infusing a bit of shine into wardrobe staples such as comfy sweaters. Michael Kors is known for elevating classic silhouettes with luxurious materials, and this season is no exception. His 2013 resort collection is dripping with gold—knit lamé, metallic brocade, shimmering silk, and lavish lace. Ready to embrace the glitz? We found eight foil sweaters for every style and budget. Pair yours with a leather skirt and black ankle boots for a tough-luxe look.

1. Rachel Comey shawl collar cardigan, $470 at Saks Fifth Avenue. 2. Christopher Fischer spray-paint metallic cable-knit, $319 (originally $378) at Intermix. 3. Knitted foil mesh jumper, $90 at Topshop. 4. Spiked metallic sweater, $32.80 at Forever 21.

5. Marc by Marc Jacobs foil-printed sweatshirt, $198 at Net-a-Porter. 6. Michael by Michael Kors metallic cable knit sweater, $150 at select Macy’s stores. 7. Oversize sweater, $39.99 (originally $79.99) at Mango. 8. Cable-knit metalized sweater, $39.99 (originally $79.99) at Mango.
