ALL IN THE DETAILS: Metallic Madness

Everywhere we go, there is always that one outfit that stands out from the crowd; as Fashionistas, we all want to be the girl wearing that outfit. Even in a room full of fashion students, experts and beyond, this Fashionista managed to be “that girl,” so I knew immediately that I had to share her fabulous look.

While the key to her outfit was her ornate, pleated, metallic midi skirt from Topshop, it was the other components of her look that pulled it all together. It can be challenging to style such a loud statement piece, but this Fashionista knew exactly what she was doing.

Elle.com suggests that “a leather jacket is never out of place. It gives your outfit a certain edge that sets you apart but also keeps you on-trend,” making it the perfect piece to wear year-round. This Fashionista prefers to drape her edgy jacket over her shoulders to keep her both warm and stylish.

Additionally, she chose a delicate necklace, small rings, a leather bag and a pair of leather heels. Tucked by her side, her black bag boasted gold details, providing a pop of color, while her pointed buckle heels peeked out beneath her skirt.

Though this Fashionista chose a wide variety of classy accessories, none of them were outrageously bold. Understated accessories are perfect in an outfit featuring one major statement piece to add excitement without being overwhelming.

Don’t forget that no look is complete without a clean nail. Whether it is painted or naked, always ensure that your nails are presentable. Old, chipped polish can take away from the overall completeness and class of a look.

How To: Begin by investing in one statement piece, such as this Fashionista’s skirt. From there, choose a variety of simple accessories that compliment rather than overpower that piece.
