I think for anyone this metallic ruffled skirt would be a bit of a challenge to style, It’s definitely one of the more ‘stand out’ pieces in my wardrobe! Something about it struck a chord with me, I think its mainly the color – I probably wouldn’t have bought this in silver or gold but this pink hue I thought was so striking.

It’s not something I would wear on the daily but it’s such a fun piece! It would look great with a graphic tee or just a crisp white shirt – I think the main idea would just be to dress it down.

It really is such a statement on its own that I wanted the rest of the look to be quite tame, I went with a lightweight jumper and then a black trench thrown on top, the trench brings back a touch of sophistication and the mules also keep the look casual (and comfy).

How would you style this skirt?

  • Although I like to think I have quite a varied style and like to experiment, I would never see myself with a metallic skirt. But this one is soo nice! The fact that its pink is a big plus, so definitely in my wishlist! Also, because of you I bought a pair of the same loafers (the one with roses) and I cannot wait to wear them!!!! xxx

  • This is indeed quite a challenge! I don’t think I could ever style such a skirt purely because of its material. Ruffles are great, but the material seems too stiff for me. You were right to dress it down, it makes it more weareable 🙂

    When I hear “metallic ruffles” my mind immediately goes to 80’s gone wrong, but I absolutely love how you’ve styled this skirt. You manage to incorporate such a unique statement piece and still make it look effortlessly classy. Also I am obsessed with your slip-ons – they are such a good dupe for the Gucci slides. I’m such a big fan of your blog and YouTube channel! Looking forward to more!

  • Love how you’re wearing this skirt! you make it look so chic and effortless!
