If you don’t have that one item in your wardrobe that lifts up your mood every time you wear it, please go on and get one. Life is too short not to have fun with clothes right? Or to wear boring clothes for that matter. Well for me, this cute midi pleated skirt is my ultimate mood lifter. It’s the kind of skirt that doesn’t require much outfit planning or preparation and once worn, it takes center stage so easily that everything else fades beautifully into the background. It’s pretty easy to style and requires minimal spruce up. The print alone is enough to fall for.
This skirt is one of the few pieces you may have seen on here before. I know I often include or feature the same accessories over and again because well, it is a known fact that accessories have to work with different outfits so I try to showcase that as much as possible. Clothes on the other hand are a different story because there is always something new to share with you guys and try as I may to show you different ways to wear one thing, sometimes there is just not enough time to go back to an already featured piece.
But this time around I have decided to do my best and re-blog this skirt just to actually demonstrate a point I’m always stressing with most of the clothes I feature. Versatility. In this post from a few months back, this same skirt seemed pretty formal paired with a peplum top, pumps and a handbag that also pulls double duty (works great for both office and casual wear). But if anything, today’s post shows that the same skirt is also perfectly suited for non-office wear. With the right accessories, it transforms rather easily.
I wonder what you guys think of the two looks, and which of the two environments would you be most comfortable wearing this skirt. Or what other ways would you style it? In fashion after all the possibilities are endless ☺️ Wishing you a great weekend!
Thanks for stopping by and stay elegant!
