Metallic Gold

How to take a gold metallic pleated skirt into night.

Clue: It’s something you are probably already doing…

So you go from polo neck ninja and Adidas…

… To strappy heels.  No big thing but it still surprises how changing the shoe takes something from casual to semi-elegant.

Coat: Sandro.  Jumper: Forever21 (love).  Skirt: Reiss. Similar from Ralph Lauren or Topshop’s printed version.  Socks: Topshop.  Heels: Steve Madden. Trainers: Adidas.  Bag: Celine (another pre-loved one on Fashionphile who friends and I have bought from). Shades: Ray-Ban

Even though I live in laid back looks, I’ve got to side with the heels this time.  All that covering up from the knit, coat and long skirt gets balanced out with a barely there heel.  In a pinch I reckon that this look is a fast after work type transition if you’re still looking for holiday outfit ideas for maybe an office party.

I LOVE this gold pleated skirt. When the sun hits it, I quietly go: “wow” like a child. I know quite sad.  I got mine in two sizes up to hang like a proper midi.

 Check out my style video on Instagram to see the other way this skirt got styled and let me know if you’d like more videos on there.

    I love the entire look, especially the sparkly socks. Love the adidas with this. Sporty-Casuy-Cool. I needed some of these for some cropped pants with brogues a few weeks ago. Yaay, I know where to get some now, Thanks

    This outfit is absolute perfection. I had a gold skirt similar to the above but I sent it to the dry cleaners and it came back with half the gold peeled off. Such a sad day…
