How to dress down a metallic leather skirt

metallic skirt Warehouse

Truth time: I have a lot of clothes that I never wear. Either they don’t quite fit right or I don’t have the pieces to pair them with… or they just kind of blah. So I got kind of weirdly excited when I resuscitated this skirt last weekend…

I bought this metallic gold leather Warehouse skirt as part of an ASOS haul nearly a year ago. I liked it immediately but for some reason I just couldn’t quite figure out how to wear it. I let it sit in a “maybe” pile for a few weeks until I accidentally threw out the return bag and had my decision made for me.

I wore it once for a night out but then let it just sit in my closet for the next 10 months. But now that I’m having a major love affair with my perforated Nike trainers, I found a new purpose for it. Turns out it works much better dressed down than trying to bling it up for a night out. Along with the sneaks, I paired it with this super-cheap green sweatshirt from H&M that I just happen to love and threw on my Massimo Dutti trench coat.

The skirt is no longer available, but these two from ASOS are just as cute. In fact, I kind of feel like I need the purple one. I’m already thinking of the sweatshirt/sneaker combos I could wear it with…
