Goal: Shine bright like a diamond.

Drawing inspiration from the 1970s as well as the runways, stores everywhere are stocking metallics like crazy right now.

Metallics trend: Rose gold metallic skirt, silver metallic jumpsuit, rose gold metallic strapless dress with sweetheart neckline

However, when styling metallics in an outfit, there is always the risk of overdoing it. Although we love the idea of channeling Zenon, we will admit that too many metallic pieces at once can give off a space cadet costume vibe. (This is the same advice we gave for styling the holographic trend.)

For our class to night transition, were going to showcase this trend in the form of a metallic skirt. While at first glance this skirt seems best suited for a night out, it can easily be made appropriate for any daytime look.

Here are some metallic skirt outfits you’ll want to wear immediately:

How to Style a Metallic Skirt – Outfit for Class

Metallic skirt outfit for class: Pink metallic wrap skirt with gray graphic tee, black mary jane flats with pearl detail, drop earrings, statement necklace, silver metallic zip backpack

Products: Skirt – Forever 21, T-Shirt – Abercrombie & Fitch, Earrings – Shopbop, Necklace – Sole Society, Backpack – Nordstrom Rack, Shoes –  Nordstrom

This metallic skirt outfit will definitely have you standing out on campus. For class, pair this pink metallic mini skirt from Forever 21 with a gray band t-shirt. This creates a casual, toned-down feel.

While you can definitely show your love for any of your favorite bands in this look (see our band tee outfits post for more on this), make sure you pick a dark colored tee to offset the bold metallic pink of the skirt.

Be sure to add on some pretty accessories to complete the look — I love this silver backpack for another hint of the metallic trend, and these pearl-embellished Mary Jane flats are cute and unexpected.

How to Style a Metallic Skirt – Outfit for a Night Out

Metallic skirt outfit for night out: Pink metallic wrap skirt with white v-neck tank, black wrap sandals with clear heels and glitter stars, nude liquid lipstick, round gold necklace, rose pink clutch

Products: Skirt – Forever 21, Top – Express, Shoes – Nasty Gal, Purse – Michael Kors, Earrings – Lord & Taylor, Eye Shadow – Barney’s New York

Now that class is over, here’s a perfect outfit for a party. It’s time to turn up on this trend without overdoing it.

Start by adding a simple white cami in a v-neck shape — it keeps all the focus on the metallic skirt. Then bring in some “extra” with these glitter star heels from Nasty Gal. The translucent heel and embellishments feel very of-the-moment and are sure to garner tons of compliments!

Adding on some chrome eyeshadow is the perfect way to add another pop of metallic without going too crazy. Finish with simple studs and a millennial pink clutch.
