Metallics are one trend that reappear each time fall rolls around, and we’re not complaining. A shot of pewter or bronze in an outfit can add just the right edge, whether it’s the coating on your jeans or a more dramatic piece, like this metallic silver skirt. What do we love about this skirt in particular? It’s under $50. Worn with a chambray denim workshirt and some serious heels, it becomes a head-turning look that will take you from day to night without a hitch.

Denim workshirts are the all-purpose instant dash of cool in your closet, and there’s no better time to wear them than fall. But if you’re looking to put a twist on an already awesome classic, try this quick DIY cut-out project.
Trace out style lines (whether you want to cut out a huge chunk as shown, or smaller slices) in chalk or by thread-basting, on your denim workshirt. Then, get a nice sharp pair of fabric scissors (we love Gingher), and slowly cut along your lines, removing the denim from your workspace.
…That’s it! How did yours turn out? Let us know on facebook!
