Rolled in Gold: Essential Holiday Skirts

Donna Karan New York, Catherine Malandrino, Proenza Schouler, Diane von Furstenberg, Hervé Léger Metallic Skirts

If you let the holidays approach without getting a festive gold skirt, then you’re making a huge tactical error! You’ve got half your party gear ready to roll with this under your belt. For work gatherings, keep it classy with a tight black sweater, but for a night out on the town, sex it up with a top that’s borderline dangerous. But make sure you keep it classy, choose one that’s either short or tight, but not both. And if you want a metallic top, only wear it if it’s a solid color – you don’t want people trying to stick you on the tree like a shiny ornament!

Donna Karan Metallic Fold-Over Stretch Pencil Skirt: This is the lustrous one to wrap yourself in for those work parties – long and tasteful, but with a flattering fit. On Net-a-Porter for $1,095.

Hervé Léger Metallic-Coated Bandage Flared Skirt: I prefer Hervé Léger pieces to be tight, but in metallics, it would be too much. Flare makes it just the right amount of party girl. On Net-a-Porter for $1,150.

Proenza Schouler Embroidered Miniskirt: Actual pieces of metal are woven together to create this look, giving the word metallic very literal meaning! At Neiman Marcus for $3,650.

Catherine Malandrino Metallic Pleated Miniskirt: This textured crepe with fierce pleats is for a glamazon goddess! Like my hero, Diana Prince! On Shopbop for $245.

Diane von Furstenberg Addie Jacquard Skirt: About as soft and sweet as gold gets! Like your metals with a little edge? Slide on some grungy biker boots. On ShopBop for $285.
