Merry mash-ups

Merry mash-ups

Year-end bashes are on the horizon. Urban highlights three key party-worthy pieces and shows you how to get the most mileage out of each item.


$270, from Kate Spade Saturday at B1-27 Ion Orchard

Why: This pleated metallic midi skirt is ready to groove, but its elegant silhouette and length keep it classy.


Style tip: Pair the gold skirt with neutral basics to tone it down for work. A navy collared top, black pumps and cognac-coloured tote are all classics which go well with the statement skirt. An architectural cuff with a single pearl adds a modern finishing touch.

3. Cognac tote $389, from Sandqvist at Kapok at National Design Centre

4. Black pumps at 1 Orchard Building, available from next month


Style tip: A grey sweater immediately makes the glam skirt more cosy-looking. Purple mid-height heels and a quirky blue clutch add colourful points of interest. The swallow studs are interesting accents which subtly reflect the gold of the skirt.
