Metallics are an instant mood lifter and if there is one wardrobe brightner you want to add to your closet this season, its a Metallic Skirt. With their shimmer and movement, metallic skirts are the best way to add interest and a little luxe to every look. Do not let your metallic skirts be confined to your ‘going out’ dress code, instead with the right styling make these reflective pieces shine during the light of the day. Consider our choice of picks as an excuse to glimmer as and when you wish:

Zara Skirt (Rs. 2290):
Play with a metallic skirt by adding cool pops of color and print. A staple stripe tee helps to pare down the shimmer, while a pair of tie-up heels add interest and play perfectly to the season's trends. 

Forever 21 Skirt (Rs. 1699):
This midi-length metallic skirt with its soft pastel hue will steal the spotlight in every outfit. The silhouette is demure and work-appropriate and would work great with a white button down and a structured blazer. For a more casual approach, we would style it with a simple tee and sneakers and top it all off with a denim jacket for a pulled-together style.

Warehouse Pleated Skirt (Rs. 5000; Koovs.com):
Metallics can be work-appropriate, especially when styled with a heavy dose of neutrals. Partner it with a grey silk blouse and throw on a pair of classic pumps to dress up your look without going overboard. 

Oxolloxo Skirt (Rs. 1999; Jabong.com):
Make your metallic skirt event-worthy with a black leather top and sexy heels. While you don't want to add too much glitz, a bold statement necklace is ideal for highlighting the hues in your skirt. Finish with an elegant box clutch to further the outfit interest.

Mango Skirt (Rs. 3490):
Edge up your metallics with a cool vintage tee and a leather jacket. A great pair of ankle strap stilettos sandals and a flash of color on your bag will play opposites to your tough-girl pieces, making it a next level night out look. You can play it down for daywear and still make it look equally cool by adding an oversized sweatshirt and pointed patent ballet flats.

Skirt (Rs. 1499; Flipkart.com):
Though a metallic midi can speak for itself and would work great with any other shade of neutral, this particular skirt would look much more impactful when teamed with a bright cobalt blue top. Grab a pair of cage heels and finish with a swipe of red lip for a seriously chic going out ensemble. 

A long time winter staple leather is not reserved for jackets alone anymore. This haute hide along with its faux counter parts absolutely shines in the form of a sexy sleek skirt. As long as you keep an eye on its proportion and shape, anyone can pull off a leather skirt for that ultimate exotic luxe touch. This season’s iterations carry A-line, pleated, pencil and flare styles in a variety of vibrant shades. We have shortlisted our favorite styles, all of which strike the perfect balance between comfort and edge making them appropriate for both day and night: 

Zara Skirt (Rs.1290):
Transform the badass leather vibe into a flirty, date-approved look by adding a cropped sweater top and trendy ankle strap heels. Layer on a tiered necklace and a mini sling bag to keep your outfit young and understated. 

Forever 21 Faux Leather Skirt (Rs. 1399):
We would opt for a minimalistic and avant-garde route when styling this adorable perforated leather skirt. A pair of white sneakers and your favorite graphic tee would do the trick. 

Mango Pleated Skirt (Rs. 4590):
This mid length pleated skirt flawlessly combines a dose badass bike babe with a dash of demure Grace Kelly. Team it up with an oversized cream jumper and ankle booties for a cozy winter look and try it with a pair of mules and a lumber-chic flannel shirt come spring.

Forever New Skirt (Rs. 2800; Koovs.com):
A sleek and polished skirt like this with its muted gold tones will work equally well for an evening soiree as it would for a 9 to 5 gig. We would partner it with a sophisticated pussy bow blouse and patent pumps for a modest office look and wear it with jewel-collared button down shirt and a dramatic sweatshirt for an evening out on the town.

Misguided Skirt (Rs. 1493; Jabong.com):
This camel leather staple is supple and rich enough to keep you warm on a chilly Delhi evening but the cut is modern and chic enough for an after-hours cocktail party. Step up your outfit by pairing the skirt with a white silk blouse and suede pointy loafers. Throw on a sleek gold cuff and a box clutch to complete the look. 

Promod Skirt (Rs. 4900 approx):
This leather skirt from Promod in the season’s hottest marsala hue is a definite keeper. Tame down the sexiness of the skirt by throwing a blazer over a black turtle-neck and add knee length boots to keep the look fashion forward yet conservative enough for the boardroom. A low cut wrap shirt in a classic black or olive hue combined with leopard pointy pumps will transform the skirt into an eye-catching little number.
