Would You Wear... a Metallic Skirt?

Who could forget Marilyn Monroe in The Seven Year Itch, her pleated dress flapping in the breeze on top of a New York subway vent?

When I think of pleated skirts, it's probably the most iconic image that comes to mind, although pleated clothing has been around since Ancient Egypt.

Fast forward a few thousand years and the pleated skirt has been rebooted in shimmering metallic shades of silver, rose gold and emerald green.

It looks great with some of the season's other key pieces, including the silk/satin bomber, and travels well – just roll and go.

Who's doing it

Apparently women whose name begins with "Sarah" love a metallic pleated skirt. Sarah Ellen, the Australian actress who has appeared on Neighbours, was spotted in Paris in gold, while Sarah Jessica Parker proved metallic pleats belong in the boardroom with her wet-look style at the Forbes Women's Summit.

How to wear it

Go nautical by wearing a silver skirt with navy or a Breton-stripe top (white sneakers optional), or make like a rock goddess with a band T-shirt and ankle boots.

The midi length can also sit nicely with a top that shows just a hint of midriff or a cold shoulder.

Dress it down for day with a denim shirt, or up for night with a bodysuit and drop earrings. 

Checks and balances: a pleated skirt looks great with other patterns. Photo: Getty

Where to get the look

Australian label By Johnny. has a great all-round midi style in gold, while Romance Was Born styles its iridescent silver style with a technicolour bomber. But my all-out favourite is this Tara Jarmon rose gold number.
