know how to shine in this season’s trend: the metallic skirt

Silver and metallic-hued skirts featured on many runways during spring 2013, and this trend has found its way into the streets and the stores. Metallic skirts can feel intimidating to some shoppers. However, when styled right they can add interest to an outfit and form the basis for an elegant rather than outlandish ensemble.


Matching metallic skirts with white tops, shoes, and accessories can create a coordinated look that works well in the warmer seasons. Metallics go with every colour, and using white can brighten the metal hues and keep it fresh and light.


Complementing metallic skirts with greys is another useful trick. The sombre grey makes the outfit suitable for more formal settings such as work or functions. Bluish metallic colours go particularly well with greys.


Metallics go well with certain geometric designs such as stripes. Match a simple metallic skirt with a striped shirt or tee for an interesting and vibrant outfit.
