As far as we’re concerned, one of the benefits of the fast-paced nature of fashion is that pretty much anything goes. Gone are the days when smart dresses were reserved for Sunday best and sneakers for the running track – the fluidity of style these days means you can elevate or dress down pieces that would have traditionally been pigeon-holed.
Take this gold sequin skirt by uber-cool French label Iro. Sure, it’s ideal for a glam evening look, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be styled for off-duty, or even the office. Check out how we’d get more out of the statement midi at NET-A-PORTER…
LOOK ONEAn instant winner for a night out – but that doesn’t mean it needs an all-black edit. Instead turn to blush and burgundy to add a luxe femininity to the harsh gold, adding a shearling jacket for an effortless touch.
Ta da! The perfect weekend casual look. Just add seriously dressed down pieces to your skirt – think Breton, shackett and trainers – to nail a relaxed vibe.
Thought gold sequins were too much for the office? Think again. Team with monochrome for a subtle take, adding just a hint of rose-coloured accessories to take the edge off.
