Ah, skirts… Some of us love them, many of us don’t. But this time of year, one well-chosen skirt can get you through lots of dressy occasions, without a massive investment in multiple outfits. Pick a color or fabric that you deeply love, and that looks good with the neutrals in your existing wardrobe, and build around that!
Imagine that you bought this skirt, and each winter holiday season after that, you treat yourself to a piece of pink tourmaline jewelry, or a stunning evening bag, or just a couple of gold “things” to brighten up your winter wardrobe:
the sequined top comes in black, grey and pink, too…
If you love earth tones, this next skirt might be a good one to consider; if the slit is too high for you, baste it down to where you’re comfortable!
Many of us don’t have madly dressy holiday parties to attend – a pretty skirt, warm tights and a seasonal necklace will get us through almost anything:
If you seldom wear skirts, even a floral print in corduroy will shock and amaze your friends!
Maybe you’re the woman who really prefers subtle, blended color palettes. These colors will not be worn by anybody else at ANY party you attend!
In fact, you can wear any color you want for parties and dressy events! If you love brown, you could wear this next outfit to dinner, a religious celebration, a party at someone’s home…
And, of course, don’t discount the possibilities of a traditional plaid skirt! Talbots always has at least a few of them – you KNOW that those will be nice quality and enduring style. Choose one that works with your favorite neutral and accent, and you will be ready for anything dressy for years to come:
My go-to skirt for dressy events is still my mid-calf crystal pleated black skirt. I know that crystal pleats are very “last year,” but I don’t much care!
p.s. Four years ago, we considered the possibilities of wearing grey for dressing up!
