How to Wear It: Metallic Skirts

Fall and Winter.  Two fabulously fashionable seasons that have one thing in common:  the metallic skirt.  A staple for the transitional fall season, and a go-to fav for most party goers for the holidays, the metallic skirt is back in session, and we've got some fun ways to rock your shine!

One of my favorite ways to wear a metallic skirt is to pair it with an understated top.  That way the skirt isn't outshined, and you can get the most versatility out of the piece.  By pairing it with something like a basic white T or a sweater, you're dressing it down and making the skirt both day and night friendly.

Also, pay attention to the cut.  Do you want something skin tight or loose fit?  Skin tight will convey more of a cocktail-night-out appeal, but will also show most all of the folds, bends, and curves of both the skirt and your body.  If you want a more flirty look, but also something very day friendly, opt for swingy silhouettes, A line skirts, and pleated hems.  This is universally the most flattering for any body type, and transitions the best from day to night.

Lastly, don't be afraid to go wild and bring out your rocker girl flare!  Afterall, it is party season!  Metallic skirts in bold hues pair gorgeously with the toughed out moto jacket and booties.  It takes the glamour of the mini and adds a rich edge that compliments an evening out or a fun night on the town.  

Metallic skirts also pair wonderfully with dark tone tights, so if you're looking for ways to keep your legs warm, that works magic.

What do you think?  Ready to pull out those metallics?
