Class to Night Out: Metallic Skirt


Metallic skirts
Skirts: 1, 2, 3

Do you struggle with transforming your outfits from day to night? Don’t worry, CF is here to help turn that daily annoyance into a fun challenge. Class to Night Out focuses on one piece per week, and aims to help you take your look from study sessions in the library to dancing the night away.

For the average college student, rocking metallic on anything but your nails might seem like a fashion risk. But that’s simply not the case! From a shoe to a pair of trousers, a metallic piece can take any look to the next level. Come on, like you really needed another excuse to wear something shiny this winter!

This week, I’ll be showing you how to style a metallic skirt for both a day of classes and a night out. If you think metallics only look good on Katy Perry or at disco night, read on – you’d be surprised how versatile they can be.

Try a skirt with an art deco-esque print like the one featured to add a glamorous 1920s vibe to your look. (Seriously, how mad are you guys that The Great Gatsby movie got pushed back to summer? So unfair.) Layer up with a cozy pale pink sweater and black tights for a sophisticated but casual look. Brown ankle boots with a subtle heel and a clever black and white tote create a studious, a”dork”able vibe. Complete the look with an elegant gold collar necklace, or leave it off to dress down.

Keep the retro-glam vibe alive by pairing your skirt with a black and white Peter Pan collar top for night. A conservative top like this one makes this elegant outfit appropriate for both “Classy Christmas”-themed house parties and family holiday gatherings! Textured tights and black spike earrings add modern edge, while a gold sequined box clutch and black ankle boots with subtle sparkle add a little more holiday magic.

What do you think?

Would you wear a metallic skirt to class? How would you style it? What do you think of the outfits? Be sure to leave me a comment and let me know, I’d love to hear your thoughts!

    Gorgeous outfits, the skirt is way too expensive for me though. I’ll be searching for a cheaper version!

    I like the outfits for going out, but if I wore those to class, people would wonder why I dressed up so much. The common outfit worn to class at my school are sweats or jeans with Uggs. The girls here aren’t too concerned with what they look like for class.
