Get The Fashion Week Trend: Dripping-Wet Metallics, Sequins And Satins

Look like your clothes are made of liquid luxury, as seen on the runways of New York Fashion Week.

Tom Ford walked models down the runway on Sept. 12 in layers of shining, jewel- and metallic-toned fabrics.

New York Fashion Week was back in (nearly) full swing this past week, and the Spring/Summer 2022 collections just wrapped up ahead of Monday’s Met Gala. One of the flashiest displays came on the final night of shows, when Tom Ford sent models down the runway looking like they were drenched in liquid-like fabrics. They sparkled, they shined, they flowed and they reflected light that may require coordinating shades.

If you want to go full bore with this look, you can layer on silks, satins, sequins and metallics from head to toe, wearing pants, skirts, slip dresses, button-up tops and blazers in a mixture of textures and jewel tones. Or if you want to tone it down a bit, you can pick a single piece to mix into your wardrobe ― the choice is yours.

The trend is a happier, more colorful version of the “wet” look that Zendaya wore to the Venice Film Festival on Sept. 3, which prompted the collective internet to react with a combination of bewilderment and awe.
