ttF Fashion Diary: Mixed Metallics

ttF Fashion Staple: Metallic Bandage Skirt
Some people hate combining silver and gold. But I’m all about mixing metals. But that wasn’t the only fashion “rule” I broke tonight. I also wore my sweater backwards! I did this once before because the deep-V showed too much skin for work. The higher neckline balances out the mini skirt and creates a surprise factor in back. I skipped jewelry aside from some studs and instead used a cross-body bag to keep the look as minimalist as possible since the fabrics had so much sine (it’s hard to see with the flash but there are specks of silver on the sweater).

    Cool idea. I like that better than putting a top under the sweater, that’s what I usually do

    What a gorgeous, sophisticated look! Love the idea of turning the sweater around.
