Hey tough girl, I know she's somewhere in there, after all we all have a little bad girl in us. Don't deny it, LOL! When I peeped this metallic skirt my tough girl within me started to manifest. I could only envision how I would style this skirt to give it some edge- rough and tumble stood up! I'd been seeing quite a few metallic pleat skirts this season and this particular one piqued my interest because it has details and interest different than all the others. The high shine was something serious and what appeared at first glance to be pleating was not actually pleats, but was achieved with a topstitching technique similar to pintucking which gives the look of pleats. The direction in which the top stitching was done created diamond shapes in the skirt. I also included a link for another skirt that is pleats but with a groovy finish.
So for look number one, I styled the skirt with a cold shoulder sweatshirt which too had some nice detail- beading & the open shoulders were asymmetrical rather than symmetrical and on one arm two openings opposed to one - different than all the other cold shoulder tops that have flooded the stores right now. I gave it some tough girl edge by throwing on my old moto jacket, which is really one of my prop jackets in my wardrobe kit. I finished it off with some cool ankle boots with stud detailing (former post; see below) equally as tough but fly! Viola, there we have our rough with some shine. Look two, further down below, I added some sparkle and remixed the skirt with another ankle boot yet this time with glitz and glitter. I changed the top, threw on my long wool vest with fur accent and gave another layer of interest by putting on a belt. Sparkle and shine but still edgy and chic. Let me know which look best suits the tough girl in you! #SybilStreetSTYLe
