Pick of the Day – metallic leather pencil skirt

The metallic trend has overtaken the highstreet in recent weeks, and this skirt is the perfect example of the look. The high shine is subdued by the battered leather material, making it great for daywear, and the clean, boxy shape prevents it from becoming too girlish.
Silver is a shade that suits everyone in the summer, as when paired with a tan, the colour really pops. Exaggerate the gleam of the material even more by pairing it white accents and simple silver jewellery. Contrast the structured shape with a slouchy plain white tee, or embrace the wild side of the shade and finish your look with a pair of neon flatforms, adding an Acne-esque contemporary edge to the ensemble.
This skirt is also versatile enough to wear in the office. This season's ladylike court shoe, with a pointed toe, a stiletto heel and high shine toe cap will add the polish needed for a formal setting. A crisp white shirt buttoned high and tucked tightly into the skirt will transform the look, creating a smart and professional outfit, whilst retaining an edge of high fashion.
