Would You Wear… a Metallic Skirt?

Some of the best staples start out as (potentially questionable) runway trends. Remember how skeptical we all were about jeggings¬†and mixed prints? They’ve passed the several-season test and are now here to stay.

Metallics are a prime example of this. Aside from always being a popular choice for formal gowns on the red carpet, metallic fabrics have worked their way into the everyday wardrobes of girls on campus. Metallic skirts and dresses were first popular as going out wear. Now they seem acceptable for just about any location.

Metallic skirts are everywhere on campus this season. These babies are no-brainers in terms of day-to-night looks, but they are more versatile than you’d think. When paired with a nice blouse, tights, or a blazer, they can be very classy choice for a presentation or work.

Here’s how we would wear one to a casual workplace…

    I love the last two skirts featured as the header. Need to find ones of those colors.

    I used to wear metallic and leather skirts and shorts all the time. Now I am kind of sad I donated them. :(…Time to go shopping for more!

    I definitely would… if I could figure out how to! I have an old one from Topshop, but I have no clue what to wear with it.

    LOVE the metallic skirts. I would definitely wear one. I like the last look in the header, that seems to fit my style the best! I pretty much have everything in my wardrobe, too, besides the skirt and the shoes.

    Can’t wait to pick one of these up next time I go shopping :)

    Hey, silver is my favorite color, so this is pretty much perfect for me!! I love the middle look in the header- it would be an easy fit with my own style. Now, I’m looking for the perfect full, high-waisted, knee-to-above-knee cut.
