OOTD: Metallic Skirt

how-to-wear-gold-skirt

One of fashion’s biggest trends for the fall/winter season has been metallics. No longer reserved for jewellery; bronze, silver, gold, and rose gold have been found on accessories and clothing galore. I, for one, can not get enough of this trend.

As someone that is partial to gold myself (as it’s part of my colour palette), I’ve been elated with seeing so much of it in stores recently. While some prefer to limit metallic hues to their jewellery, adding a hint of glamour to your day-time wear with a pop of silver or gold in your garments is really fun.

 This skirt picture is one I scooped up from Zara. While I’ve dressed it up here for the holiday season, this skirt could easily be transformed into casual attire if I opted for a t-shirt, sneakers, and a leather jacket to pair with it instead. However, ’tis the season for a little sparkle, so I went the opposite-end and grabbed a glittery clutch, and some metallic silver shoes to go off the deep end with the trend. I kept the top low-key and comfortable by adding a thin, neutral, knit sweater into the mix. Ladies, if you have an hour-glass or pear-shape body-type, make sure to tuck your shirts into your skirt for the most flattering fit (at the small of your waist)!

If you want to try incorporating this trend into your wardrobe, I always say to start small. If you grab  a bright metallic jacket from the get-go, it will probably seem like too much for you at first. Instead, perhaps opt for some metallic footwear — it’s a great way to elevate any look and makes it seamless for you to transition from day-to-night. I’m currently swooning over a pair of Prada metallic pumps.

Can we also take a minute to admire the necklace I have on? It’s from the talented designer Tricia McMaster of Green Bijoux that I sat down and interviewed a while back. Her pieces are still some of my favourites! I always hunt her booth down at the Toronto One of A Kind Show to see what else she’s made (and end up scooping up a new piece from her collection while there, too!).

What do you think of the metallic trend? Have you incorporated it into your closet?
