Metallics are a great way to add spice to any outfit, whether it be a top, a bag, a skirt, shoes, or accessories. I always make sure I have a variety of metallic items in my closet for easy mix and matching. So when I spotted this deep gold pleated skirt on Shopbop, I knew I had to add it to my ever-growing collection of metallic pieces.
While doing some online shopping on Shopbop, I came across English Factory, a Los Angeles-based brand with an effortless, feminine aesthetic. I noticed all of the pieces on Shopbop were very affordable, the designs wearable and chic. The metallic pleated skirt caught my eye immediately, and while the blue one was also very pretty, I decided that the gold one would be more versatile and also a better choice for fall outfits. And this T-shirt from the newest collection of Limited Edition by Karl Lagerfeld arrived just in time – these cute, neon doodles of Karl and his cat add a fun element to an otherwise simple black & gold outfit.
Shopbopでオンラインショッピングをしていた時、English Factoryというロサンゼルスのブランドを初めて知りました。割と新しいブランドで、コンセプトは楽で努力したように見えないフェミニンなスタイル。このゴールドのスカートはすぐ目に止まり、ブルーの方も凄く可愛かったのですが、ゴールドの方が着回しに良いかなと思いました。そして、Limited Edition by Karl Lagerfeldの秋冬コレクションのTシャツもちょうど良いタイミングに届いたので、この２点を合わせてみました。遊び心のあるネオンカールと猫ちゃんのイラストがシックなメタリックスカートと程よいバランスがとれて、格好よすぎず、誰でも着れるコーディネートに仕上げました。
Would it be weird to admit that I actually already own a gold, pleated skirt; yet, I still purchased this one? Probably. But I do have 3 good reasons why I added this in the shopping cart. Reason #1: the deep shade of gold in this skirt is much more to my liking than the one I already had. Reason #2: the length of the skirt hits the area below my knee, making it a perfect length that is not too long (my other skirt hits my knees, which I don’t like). And reason #3: I love the movement of this skirt and how it drapes beautifully, as you can see in the photos. All in all, I think I found a pretty good replacement and I’m happy about it. Once sweater weather kicks in, I’ll be wearing cozy, chunky knitwear, and maybe even pair it with some heels for an evening look. I can’t stress how much I love the versatility of a good metallic piece. What about you?
既にゴールドのプリーツスカートを持っているのに、もう一着買ってしまったと認めたら、変でしょうか？実は、新しいものを購入した理由は３つあります。その① English Factoryの方のしっとりしたゴールドカラーが既に持ってるものより気に入ったこと。その② 着丈がひざ下なので、自分にはちょうどいい丈感だと思ったこと（既に持っているものはちょうどひざ丈なのがずっと気になってました）。その③ スカートの動きが本当に綺麗！写真を見たらそれがすぐ分かると思います。ちょうどいい代わりが見つかって良かったです。もうちょっと秋らしい気候になったら、ニットやブーツと合わせたり、今季は色んなコーディネートに挑戦したいです。メタリックカラーのアイテムは以外と多方面で使いやすい。そう思いませんか？

I think metallics are amazing because like you said they do add spice to an outfit. I personally don’t own any metallics because it’s not really my style but I love your outfit! You can pretty much pull off anything 🙂
Samantha I love your whole look. The sneakers are to die for. I currently do not own any gold metallic clothing – last year I was into silver metallic. This year I have added gold accessories. Thanks for sharing.
This skirt is everythingggg. And you have the absolute perfect shoes to pair with it. I’m not much of a heels girl, so this is amazing.
Love the whole look! This skirt is so gorgeous on you!
Metallic pieces rock!! You styled this skirt perfectly. Those sneakers are the cutest!!! The thing I like about this skirt is that you can wear it in a variety of ways!! So you’re justified in having two gold skirts lol.
That metallic gold skirt is so beautiful! I love it and would buy multiple ones too. This one is quite stunning in color and shape. I’ve seen a lot of of metallic skirts, but none this gorgeous in color and none that flows so well. I love the whole black and gold trend!! You look awesome!
Love this skirt! Metallic trend is definitely still going strong!
This metallic skirt is so gorgeous! I love the bold flair that it adds to this outfit. Pairing sneakers with the skirt was such a good idea! Also, your choice of scenery compliments the look.

I love this metallic skirt and color! so so beautiful!! you paired so well with the sneakers and the tee! very great styling, Samantha! Also, the shots are gorgeous!!! Happy weekend, babe! xx. Gina
I definitely don’t think I would have picked this beautiful, gold skirt had I not seen it on you first. It’s definitely a must-purchase, even more so since I have seen it styled with sneakers. I think this may be one of my favorite looks from you. I may just have made my first Shopbop purchase 🙂
You know I love metallics to brighten up a look!!! This skirt is major! But those sneakers are the thing that got my attention! Amazing!
Such a beautiful gold pleated skirt babe!! Definitely a statement piece and I can see why to fallen in love! Agree the gold color is very stunning. Love you you style it with the kicks and those frames. You look stunning in all the pics

Nice elegant and casual . Fresh and stylish . Very cool as always .
Omg this look is giving me all sorts of feels lol. I actually just invested in a gold accordion maxi skirt similar to this one but longer and can’t wait to wear it this fall! It’s so fun and pretty on you 🙂 xo, sharon
Your skirt is so stunning! The movement on it is really beautiful. Love your cool street style vibes, babe!
