Currently listening to Justin Timberlake – Dress On.
One quick question, have you ever considered wearing your skirt as a blouse? Well if you have but don’t know how it make it work, in today’s post I’d be showing you how to style your skirt as a blouse and sharing tips too.
What I’m wearing :
White denim : Topshop (thrifted)
Shoe : Details here
Bag : DIY fringe details (thrifted)
Earring : DIY
Tip 1 : Flared mini skirts are the best when it comes to styling your skirt as a top. This skirt style gives the perfect illusion of a strapless blouse as they create enough room for our breasts to breathe.
Tip 2 : Opt for structured and statement yet simple flared skirts to elevate your looking just plain to looking chic. Florals, strips or even something similar to mine with a belt that can be made into a bow are perfect options.
Tip 3 : When it comes to picking a bottom, a well tailored black pant goes with almost every top but I opted for white denim pants because not only do they have a similar texture to my skirt (top), I’m trying to stick with the 3 colors rule (will talk about this later). You can also pair this with your regular denim pants for a casual look or a long midi skirt. Note that the skirt option is due to my personal preference as when I tried it with a shorter length skirt I didn’t like the proportions of the silhouette it created, so you can try it with a short skirt and see how it works for you.
The key to having a great wardrobe isn’t how many designer pieces you own or how your wardrobe overflows, it’s really all about having functional pieces that you can create several looks with. Do have a great week.
Till next time… xoxo
Word for the day : The only way to overcome your past is to focus on your future.
