It’s easy to look at a garment and think that you know how to wear it – we are, after all, adults. Mostly.
But it’s easy to lose sight of possibilities; one of you is quite smitten with this skirt, but wasn’t sure that there were enough options to make it worth including in her wardrobe.
This is the skirt – it’s easy to see the appeal, if you’re among the “black & white” crowd!
Let’s start with the obvious – a white sweater, black & white jewelry, and a very modern pair of two-tone flats:
Similarly, a black sweater, bag and flats are easy choices. Adding pearls and shiny earrings help balance out the lightness and print of the skirt:
Any white blouse could be worn with this skirt, but I like the idea of something that echoes the fluidity of the skirt, and that feels sort of summery…
Those of us who are committed (ahem…) to the world of black & white prints might choose a striped top to wear with this skirt; I think that this works well if you keep the scale of the stripes larger than the checks in the skirt…
These were all relatively obvious – what about pulling out your green polo, and your perfectly matched green bag? Simple black accessories finish this off in a low-key way that doesn’t overwhelm…
Maybe pink has been your accent color for a long time, to the point that you even have beautiful tourmaline jewelry! The skirt, along with simple flats, is a great background for bright pink:
Just because it’s a skirt doesn’t meant it has to be dressy! Sneakers, a small backpack, and gummy bear earrings are all fun without being over the top:
Any bright color will go well with black and white – I couldn’t resist blue!
It is important to be certain that you’re really getting mileage from your clothes – we need to avoid being wasteful, right?
