My relationship with the long midi skirts has developed in time, starting with my first vintage finds with a floral ’70s twists and going strong with diverse seasonal additions. I love everything about a good midi skirt. Its perfect hemline elongates all types of silhouettes and elegantly emphasizes the subtle sexiness of a woman’s calves. It is a versatile timeless staple worth the long run. Styling a plain A-line midi seems pretty easy, however, most women fear to experiment with a more complex design like, for example, a pleated metallic skirt with geometrical prints. I decided to make a case for this item and prove you how versatile and easy it can be.
The lame skirt defines the ultimate extravagance for a night time outfit. I went above and beyond and paired it with this doubled breasted tuxedo blazer to add some structure to the entire silhouette. Nothing will enhance the sophistication of an opulent item better than a masculine touch. Keeping the accessories on a minimalist note is the key to making this outfit look effortlessly chic.
Surprisingly the metallic pleated skirt is an essential night-to-day item that could be easily embodied into a business outfit. Wear it with heels, as legs need to be lengthened in a midi skirt equation. There is something seductive and flirty about the slingback shoes which are still conservative enough for office style. When you choose the top, think about balancing the proportions. A crisp white shirt with dramatic sleeves will be the perfect choice to make the gold lame skirt look professional. A masculine coat with a matching hemline was my top outerwear choice. It instantly makes you look taller if you wish so.
The lame skirt is a sophisticated luxurious looking item that can easily be introduced into a smart casual outfit with the help of a chunky pullover and a pair of over-the-knee boots. Mixing and matching unexpected textures like the shiny fabric with tan suede will make a confident style statement. The top-handle bag is work-friendly but it can easily translate to after-dark with this elaborate but versatile combo.
