Welcome back to daylight standard time everyone! I hope you all enjoyed your extra hour of sleep as much as I did. It felt great to say that I woke at 8:30 am instead of 9:30 on the weekend. As we all know, changing the clock is just another symbol of our trek toward winter. With winter comes tights under cute skirts… but what if you buy a skirt and have no clue what shirt to style with it? That’s what our reader, Michele, asked in an email to us the other day. Read on for the ideas we came up with…
Michele bought this cute, faux leather skirt, from H&M but wasn’t sure what she could pair it with. She didn’t want to be boring and go with the plain white t-shirt like in the picture. I think she came to the right place. We’ve come up with a few ideas for her.
A faux leather skirt is versatile; you can dress it up or down depending on your mood and event. If you throw on a t-shirt, like one of the ones in the picture below, it lends a funky vibe. Since I chose black printing on the two shirts below, I would throw on these kicks or these on with them.
Say you’d like to wear the skirt to work. As you see below, there are a number of tops that can be worn for work even if you work in a stuffy old law firm. (I just couldn’t help myself.) I’d go with the ladylike ones if that’s the case. Add black tights, pumps, a purse and voila! You’re set for a day at the office.
If you want to take that skirt out for a night on the town and find some nice guys to buy it drinks, it’s always good to show a little bit of skin. Not too much, mind, you don’t want to put all the goodies on display and look trashy. No, remember, you are a lady, you show a hint of skin, a nice tease, and still leave some to the imagination.
When doing the sexy night on the town look with the skirt, I’d pair it with some great stilettos, such as these or these. You could also rock these with the t-shirts for an indie rocker-chic vibe.
The most important thing to remember when wearing a faux leather skirt is this – You Are A Bad Ass! If you continue to think that while you’re wearing it, you can get away with any top of your choosing and any shoe. Throw on a leopard print shoe or top with it, put on that well loved sweatshirt and your Sam Smith’s; when you wear a leather skirt it is all about attitude. So, you got this… go forth and shine!
