One Skirt, Two Ways to Wear

One Skirt, Two Ways to Wear

Hi Everyone,

Anyone who knows me also knows it’s one of my biggest passions to make the absolute most out of my wardrobe. You’ll often find me combining something new with a piece that hasn’t been worn for years. Being able to successfully do this requires a little imagination and a few simple guidelines to follow. It also requires careful consideration when cleaning out your closet to make way for new pieces.

My 3 basic guidelines when creating new outfits are so easy that I’m going to share them with you here:

  1. Always aim for an element of colour matching.
  2. Wherever both top and bottom are loose or fuller I like to create a semi waist with a little tuck (as with the blouse in the picture above).
  3. Add fun with a style mix. Formal pieces with casual and vice versa.

One Skirt, Two Ways to Wear

  1. With an airy linen blouse and sneakers

I know linen creases a lot but it will remain one of my Summer favourites always. There’s something special about this Scarlet Poppies top – I also like wearing it over skinny jeans.

It is from a favourite store of mine New Collection and in the official picture I see it tucked fully into a pair of shorts. Will have to try that combination too some time.

As both the skirt and top are full in style, I created a bit of a shape to the outfit by tucking the blouse in a little in front.

Note how the sneakers have a touch of grey in them that matches the blouse. I love this combination so much that I had to do a little dance during the photo shoot – smile!

2. With pink waistcoat and metallic pink sandals

There’s something about these cute metallic sandals that also made me want to dance a little.

The sandals are Amigas sandals, lovingly hand made in Vietnam and available online in many different colours here.

The pink vest is one I bought last Summer. I’ve been hanging out to wear it more so let’s hope the warmer weather keeps up. I like the fact that it is a little more fitted over my skirt so the whole outfit looks very different from the combination with the floaty linen blouse.

Note the little pink theme I have going on here with glasses, vest, bag and sandals all being pink!

  1. Both looks are really great, but I especially love the way you were able to pull off two roomier pieces together. Thank you for the outfit inspiration! 🙌
