Happy Monday my friends. Did anyone get snow this morning? We got a dusting here in Boston, but now it's raining so everything is just wet and slushy. There is nothing more beautiful than a white Christmas, so I'm hoping that we'll get more snow for the holidays. Speaking of the holidays, one trend that I'm loving this season is metallic, especially when it comes in the form of a pleated skirt. Not only does the shimmery material add a little edge to such a classic piece, but it's perfect to dress up for a holiday party or New Years Eve look. I have to admit that I was a little hesitant to add a metallic skirt to my wardrobe because I didn't know how much I would actually wear one, and didn't want spend the money on something that I would only wear once. However, after a little browsing on Pinterest and seeing metallic skirts styled casually, I had to give the look a try, and I'm loving it. I found this metallic pleated skirt at Forever 21 for under $25, which also made it a no-brainer to try the trend. I wanted to go for a monochromatic look, so I paired it with a grey knit, and finished my look with a pair of sneakers for a cute, cozy and put together outfit. I love that I can literally wear this everywhere from the grocery store to drinks with the girls. Tell me, would you wear a metallic skirt casually?
Make sure to stop back later this week as I'm showing you how to style a metallic pleated skirt dressed up for a holiday party.
