Fall trend: a gold skirt
A skirt like this one by Sari Gueron is a great investment for the fall. During the hot summer months, I'll wear it with a simple tank top and a large, bejeweled statement necklace. But when the cold weather starts, I'm planning on tucking a plain black sweater into the skirt and pairing the outfit with strappy gladiator heels (shown on model). Of course, this Sari Gueron creation is a luxurious, double-layered confection of gold silk lame, with a ruched waist, peek-a-boo hem, and glorious crinkles and pleats in the fabric. But at a whopping $875, you might want to invest in this far more affordable Forever 21 version of the gold skirt, or this pretty 3.1 Phillip Lim design with floral print. Either way, a gold skirt will carry over nicely into fall, conveying a hint of the glamourous 1920s flapper trend seen on the fall runways.
