How do I use different LookAndFeel for my application?

I used WindowsLookAndFeel for my application. Now I need to use MetalLookAndFeel for a new class with in the application. How can I change to new LookAndFeel?
I tried UIManager.setLookAndFeel method. But It keeps the WindowsLookAndFeel, not changing to MetalLookAndFeel.

Thanks,

sounds like the windowsLookAndFeel is being set later in your code

use your ide's edit/find to search for the L&F name, or (possibly) for
SwingUtilities.updateComponentTreeUI //if L&F set after components created
