This season, there’s a subtler take on holiday glitter.

Metallic clothing and accessories are mainstays during the holidays. But this year, they’re back with a twist. At the moment, high-shine fabrics are the most current way to dress things up (just look to Balenciaga and Fendi’s fall collections for proof) with options in outerwear, separates, and athleisure and activewear. Here, how to style these fresh, lacquered pieces for the gym, holiday festivities—or both.
