French Chic Holiday Essential: The Metallic Pleated Skirt

French Chic Holiday Essential: The Metallic Pleated SkirtThe holidays are the perfect excuse to break out statement pieces from sequins, bold prints, metallic, with a chic flair of course!

One of my favorite essential this holiday season is the metallic pleated skirt. Metallic can be tricky as you don’t want the fabric to be bad quality making you looking cheap and not chic, if you know what I mean!

I found the perfect one from Trouvé at Nordstrom. The silver metallic fabric is very soft as well as the inside black lining.

My favorite way to wear a pleated skirt for a day look is with a sweater and ankle boots. An oversized or more fitted sweater works perfectly depending on the look you’re going after. For this particular outfit here, I wore a sweater dress and love how you can simply layer over or tuck it in.

For a night look, you can simply style it with a black satin camisole, sandals or pumps. With the metallic color being the focus of the outfit, you want to keep the rest of your outfit fairly simple and minimal. I completed this dressy look with a silver metallic choker from local jewelry designer Kamaria and my new double breasted grey coat from Zara.

This outfit is also perfect for a Holiday wedding. I recently partnered with Ada from Elegance and Mommyhood on her Holiday series “What to Wear for a Holiday Wedding, 10 bloggers, 10 ways”. Check out all these inspirational outfits!

 

 

Kellyann: “This time of year I am reaching for something with a little glamour yet comfortable.  This faux wrap dress in black is a classic piece but by adding a fun statement necklace and my short leopard coat I’ve added a little glamour.”

 

Kristin:  “Would you guess that two of the items in my winter wedding look are secondhand? This black and white printed dress and coat are both thrifted! I’m talking about where I thrift in my post as well as my aversion to tights… I don’t care how cold it is, if I have the choice I’ll take my chances with bare legs!”

 

Whitney: “I’m not actually attending any weddings this season.  If I were, I probably would have wanted to buy a pretty, new holiday dress.  But instead, this post was a good exercise in wardrobe remixing!”

 

Chrissy: “When I think “Christmas wedding” I think silvers, blacks, reds etc, but I couldn’t resist going with this deep burgundy, ruffle top and floral skirt. These colors are everywhere right now!”

Ada: “A little black dress in velvet is the perfect dress to wear for a December Wedding since it is the Holiday season. Velvet is the IT Material of the season – so rich, elegant, dressy and beautiful. I love that this dress is in a midi length which makes it Wintery and for a pop of color I chose a coral python clutch, blush velvet pumps with a blush pink lace choker and red lipstick. I’d also wear this elegant floral kimono jacket over the dress to keep myself warm and layers are a must for a Winter Wedding or Holiday Party.”

 

Monica: “I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday season before.  As always, thanks Ada for the fun collab!  Today I’ve decided that for a holiday wedding I want to be comfortable and wear pants.  I paired the pants with a fun pearl top​.”

 

Linda: “Going for a Winter Wedding on New Years Look: Heels to start off for the  more traditional look and of course a great pair of chucks for dancing into the night. I do have a shawl I will wear to cover my shoulders but heck, how fun is this amazing sequin dress from Charlotte Russe paired with J Crew Pumps or black converse.”

 

Jennie – “A black jumpsuit is an elegant look perfect for weddings, especially in winter when you also want to stay warm. Topping it off with a bit of sparkle makes it perfectly festive for the season!”

Christine: “What I love most about this silver metallic pleated skirt is the fit and how flowy it is. This is such an elegant and chic outfit to wear to a Holiday Winter Wedding. Simply dress it up with a black satin camisole, fishnet tights, classic black pumps and layer your favorite winter coat et voila!”

 

Shelbee: “For my winter wedding outfit, I went for more of a dressy casual look with layered little black dresses: a button front shirt dress over a body con dress.  I kept my accessories simple with a gold link floral necklace and a black clutch. Then I let my bright pink heeled loafers be the statement.  My feeling is you can never go wrong with a little black dress and some fabulous shoes for just about any occasion!”

  1. That skirt is so stunning and I need to buy it. I love both ways you styled it – optionsss!! Actually I think both outfits are festive and dressy enough for many Holiday events and occasions. The first outfit with the camisole tucked inside is perfect for a Winter Wedding around the Holiday season. Plus that grey coat is so classic and beautiful! Well done! I am so glad you are a part of this collab Christine and I cannot wait to see the final two outfits you style for The Holiday Series!! I will e-mail you soon!

    Welcome by and check my post as well! =)
