I love mixing dressy items with casual pieces. So I combined the skirt with a black, cashmere, faux wrap sweater, black tights and black, high boots. It’s all about mixing up textures that make this modern look interesting. This is a dressy look that’s not over-the-top. It would be perfect for an office party, dinner party or dinner out at a romantic restaurant.
The next look is inspired by an article I saw in Vogue, written by one of their fashion editors. She paired the skirt, (well actually hers was a mini-skirt,) with a white blouse and a big slouchy sweater. She wore it with thick tights and chunky shoes. It makes a great weekend look. In spite of the sequins, it’s casual.
For my presentation, I paired my skirt with a long sleeved black t-shirt from the Loft, a black DKNY rayon blazer that I’ve had for a few years, and the same tights. (Charcoal or aubergine tights could be cool, too.) I belted my waist with a black patent belt and changed to short, suede boots. I felt very fashionista!
Last but not least, I paired the skirt with this magenta INC top I’ve been coveting for a couple of months now. (I got the last one at the store!) For this look, I’d shed the tights and change to strappy, sparkly sandals. It’s truly a fun look that will really go to any dressy occasion except for all but the most traditional, black-tie affair. (The top shown obviously isn’t the exact top, but it’s similar.)
