We’ve all heard of adding a pop of color to brighten up a look. But, for those days when you just want to wear head to toe neutrals, there could be a better solution. Adding a pop of metallic instead can serve the same purpose of giving your outfit a little bit of contrast.

My style is very feminine so I love wearing shiny, sparkly things. It’s socially acceptable to wear sequins, glitter, velvet, metallics or anything sparkly during the holiday season. However, during the rest of the year, subtle shine is more appropriate. This Fashionista is wearing a metallic look that can be rocked year round, day or night. Swap out the jacket for a blazer and this look is office appropriate too! This is what I would refer to as grown-up sparkle. With a little bit of shimmer, this neutral look is anything but dull.

A metallic silver midi skirt is the focal point of this look. The high-waisted silhouette is equally flattering and chic. I like how the skirt is toned down with a military jacket, plain T-shirt and neutral heels. This Fashionista’s accessories really make this outfit stand out. A chunky necklace and skinny belt add just enough details. And, you can never go wrong with a top knot.

How To: Copy this look by pairing a metallic midi skirt (could be silver or gold) with a basic top. Add a fun necklace if desired. I love mixing metals, so I would do gold jewelry with a silver skirt!
