You may not be prepared to embark on the multi-colored-multi-decade-multi-kitsch like sensibilities that have spawned from Alessandro Michele’s Gucci takeover (which, is in no way a negative, I’m a fan – I like it all) – it just may not be for everyone, everywhere. Trying to make sense of the metallic pleat trend – we enlisted sisters Laura and Danielle who are not only like-minded in style, but up for the challenge of making said trend a sensible possibility for all of us.
The key seems to have been taking it down a notch on the whole, bold color scheme. The subtle silver and gold hued skirt and dress lend themselves easily to a more romantic, if not neutral, pallet of colors to accompany the somewhat obvious show-offyness of the metallic pleats. Add a chunky, cozy sweater or oversized rose colored trench and suddenly you aren’t going to the disco … but a desk! Or a date? Okay or maybe you’re just headed across the street with your sister because you saw every store that exists is having a 70% off sale.
Getting dressed in metallic pleats never seemed so easy. What do you think, metallic pleats pretty please or pretty pass?
