This winter, metallic pleated skirts were EVERYWHERE. I bought one that is a lovely dark blackened gold colour and it has been well used since I got it. It is the perfect piece to wear with my gold and bronze-toned accessories. For the winter season, I have been wearing it with tights and boots. I tried wearing it with over the knee boots on a particularly cold day but I think the skirt looks better with ankle boots. It is light enough that I may be able to wear it for the spring and summer with some sandals or open-toed shoes. One thing that drives me nuts about the skirt is that it's TERRIBLE for static cling! It is supposed to be a flowing skirt with MOVEMENT but half the time it is stuck to my tights with a vengeance. It gets REALLY FREAKIN' DRY here in the wintertime.
Speaking of wintertime, the weather here has been really sh*tty despite the fact that it is "spring". Therefore I am just going to keep dressing in my fall/winter styles and ignoring the fact that we are entering my least favourite fashion seasons.
