A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending the press days for Very Exclusive and Boohoo in central London. It was so much fun seeing their SS17 collections, it gave me so much inspo for next season and my next summer holiday outfits, there are so many great pieces, I can’t wait to get my hands on them. This is the outfit I chose for a fun filled day of fashion and cocktails – the best kinda day!
I don’t know about you but I’m still loving the metallic trend, especially skirts. There are lots of styles around at the moment, from 60s inspired minis to pleated midis, It’s hard to scroll through Instagram without seeing silver or gold shimmering on a follow fashion lovers feed. For good reason too, they are great for this time of year, I felt so bright, festive and Christmassy while about and about in Covent Garden, where I shot these photos with the lovely Primrose from Style Petal.
HOW TO STYLE
I saw this silver mini skirt a couple of weeks ago and thought it was fabulous, but I also stopped for a second at the checkout and thought ‘what the hell am I going to wear with this?!’. Lots of scenarios ran through my mind before I settled on an all black and silver look. What else would it be really? I’m nothing if not predicable. Black saves the day, always.
When styling a statement piece it’s always best to stay minimal with the rest of your outfit, I know I’ve said this before but it is really is key, or you may run the risk of looking OTT. It’s great how the colour stands out so much against the dark fabrics and is the main feature of the outfit. However, I also think that a bright red jumper would look fantastic with this metallic skirt too. I will give this a whirl and share the #OOTD with you soon.
How would you style a metallic skirt?
P.S I have two videos live on my new YouTube channel, I’d love to know what you think of them?
