Trend Alert: Metallic skirt

There can be no doubt that Christmas is fast approaching when sequins, diamantes and jewels sparkle from shop windows. There is nothing more feminine and flirty than metallics for a festive occasion, especially when the light reflects off certain textures so that you glisten around the room.

Whether it is mini, midi or maxi, a metallic skirt is a Christmas must have! Lustrous qualities can now be incorporated into any fabric from lace to leather, as well as metallic fibres woven into polyester fabrics. The choice available has never been so extensive; it is just the cost we need to worry about.

You want the skirt to be the centre piece of the outfit so keep the top half to a simple block colour. By staying away from prints you can have more fun exploring different textures, such as matching your metallic skirt with a velvet top or sequins with chiffon. If you are feeling daring, a metallic skirt with black biker boots is a fun look during the day and can work wonderfully with heels for evening drinks.

A-Line metallic skirts are everywhere, especially in Topshop and New Look where you’ll find them fairly affordable. Take inspiration from their styling and match yours with a fur coat and no tights if you can handle the cold.
