Let's talk metallics. They're one of the biggest trends of AW16 - in fact, any AW - and i'm far from the only one snapping up anything golden in sight right now. I've been searching the internet high and low, in fact, for a little piece of shimmer and it just so happens that every time I do stumble upon the perfect metallic pleated skirt it's sold out. Typical, huh?
Eventually, I finally found this dreamy little thing at Little Mistress in both gold and silver (it was a very, very tough decision) and it's officially getting to the point where someone may have to surgically remove it from my body. Sprucing up your wardrobe with a little something different never hurt nobody, and that is what metallics are here to do. The beauty of a pleated midi is that it can transfer to any occasion, be it work, dinner or drinks with the girls - it's the kind of piece that can be paired with anything (crop tops, sweaters, button downs) for an ultra feminine touch. To keep it extra low key, i've been pairing the style with an oversized boxy sweater and stacked heels for the perfect office look that takes me from my desk to dinner on Thirsty Thursday. Who said duo-dressing had to be so difficult?
