For Summer 2009, many fashion lovelies are stepping out in metallic mini dresses.

Fashion muse Kate Moss is credited for starting this trend at the Met Gala when she arrived wearing a silver number with the draping sleeve and open back.

Usually metallics appear in stores during Christmas, but it is refreshing to see them at this time of year.

Implications - Metallics offer an inherent feeling of luxury. For the fashionista, it means instant glamour; for others, it alludes to opulence and wealth. In an era of conspicuous consumption, offering metallic goods may mean the difference between capturing your customer's attention and having it stray to shinier alternatives.
