I'm Going Platinum!

Friday, October 18, 2013

 We all know that metallics are really hot right now, but you may wonder how to style such a glitzy piece. I personally love the trend as I love all things sparkly, so I recently bought a silver skirt, but sometimes I doubt if it's really classy enough to wear. I've put it in on and then decided to change my outfit for something a little safer. So, is it CHic or CHeesy? I'm wondering...is it something YOU would wear?

Let's take a look...

 It's pretty fabulous in these photos. Isn't it? A crisp button down blouse definitely classes up the va-va-voom-ness of a silver skirt, and a chambray shirt adds a down-to-earth edginess to the look. A soft black or silver sweater is a great partner for a more elegant evening look. And the last photo is my favorite; the snakeskin pattern is a perfect pair for platinum!

What do you think?

Here's how I styled my silver skirt:

 And for a more casual look that brings it into fall try it with a leather vest...
 ...or a fur vest.

  2. I read the post title and thought 'no, she cannot change her hair'.
    Ok, so silver skirt - if there is anyone who can wear this stylishly, it is you.
    I could so see it with the fun of chambray, or a deep wine coloured sweater. So many pretty things to make it shine.

  3. What a fabulous selection! These metallic skirts are so versatile and you have shown here that they can look classy too.

  4. Looks truly so fashionable stylish and totally stunning,Sharon!
    Amazing look here #3....
    I love long skirts and all these looks are such a very elegant,I would love to make more long skirts for myself only in silver or platinum ...:)))
    Wishing you lovely Sunday,dear friend,

  5. Love the platinum look right now. Metallics in the Fall are so much fun!

    Hope you had a great weekend Sharon!



  6. I love the first look! It's ethereal!

  7. I LOVE the first top, so pretty and fluttery. But I feel like because the skirt is such a statement piece that maybe less intense shoes would be better. Not because they don't both look great, but because it's hard to get the full impact of more than one at time. Just my two cents but you do look gorgeous!

  8. YES, yes you certainly can wear a silver skirt :) i LOVE it and love the looks you posted!!! i'm trying to figure out what to wear to a wedding next week, and I've just found some inspiration :)
