We like a dash of metallics now and again, and we feel more secure in our desire now that we know Bill Cunningham feels the same way. In fact, during any discussion of glittery and shiny clothing, triumphantly announcing that you can always wear silver or gold "because they're neutral"! is one of our favorite fashion trump cards. After gradually coming to terms with Beyonce's Balenciaga leggings and the more Brooklyn-friendly shiny American Apparel versions, we've now come across a totally new and perplexing metallic question: Are metallics manly?
