Wearable glam is part of the game in 2016, with fashionistas indulging in the ultimate allure of lurex knits and lamé fabrics accentuated with slimming pleats. The Gucci metallic pleated skirt from Resort 2016 has been adopted by fashionistas such Alexa Chung, blogger Pernille Teisbaek of ‘Look De Pernille’, and Darja Barannik. They respectively styled it with fitted striped knit, floral sweater, and biker jacket. Equally attention-grabbing is the more affordable Alice + Olivia Katz Metallic Pleated Skirt.
Cool Girls in Golden Pleats
Celebrities loved the easiness and sensuality of the Alice + Olivia skirt. Laverne Cox wore it with a simple halter top to a charity event, and Rachel Platten with a sexy bralette on the red carpet. Yet, we are urging you to twist it a bit towards a less conventional direction. During the Alice + Olivia presentation, the skirt was styled with a richly embroidered military jacket. And on the streets, girls dressed down the Gucci version for daytime with sneakers and casual jackets.
Style it à la Gucci Resort 2016
The basic element seen at the official lookbook is a combo of the metallic pleated skirt with a roomy sweatshirt, or generally a voluminous top that creates a very modern silhouette. You can also cause this effect with a bomber jacket, either plain or adorned with retro-natural motifs. Minimalists will prefer it with the 3.1 Phillip Lim Khaki Satin Bomber Jacket . Romantic maximalists will amp it up with the RED Valentino Cherry & Bee Leather Jacket , the sportier Maje Bacary Jacket or the quirkier Sacai Bandana Print Jacket . Bomber jackets crafted from satin display shine in a cool way!
Style it à la Balenciaga FW16
New Creative Director Demna Gvasalia suggested pleats with oversized puffer jackets and in some looks combined the sporty puffer with ultra-glam lurex separates. Sporty dazzle was the main theme. A similar look can be achieved with our Sacai Luck Jacket.
Think of the eye-catching Maje Jason Skirt with the classic bomber in khaki. There is dazzling lurex in the weave that makes this funky skirt dressier. Ribbed knit emulates the vertical alignment of the pleats without exaggerating on texture. Another avant-garde option is the Sacai Embroidered Lace Poplin skirt, which is a wrap pleated skirt accented with a gold-tone lace panel. It’s a lurex-infused visual surprise!
