I think a black skirt is a staple piece in anyones wardrobe…just like a little black dress. I used to wear black skirts all of the time when I was over weight. I felt like they flattered me the best and were so much easier to find sizes that fit in skirts over pants. Also since shirts were limited as well, I felt that a black skirt could go with any top, and also could be dressed up, or worn more casual. Well even after I have lost over 350 pounds, I still find myself gravitating to skirts…and after finding this old black skirt in my closet I knew it was time for an upgrade!
I think this black skirt is so classic and simple, yet the cutouts at the bottom of this skirt gives it a little personality and a little something extra. I think it is classic, yet fun and I love it. I love how you can take one item, and wear it so many ways.
Here I am using this same skirt for more of a daytime look. I paired the skirt with a graphic tee, blazer and super cute sneakers. I love pairing skirts with sneakers. I think it is adorable, and comfortable! I think the blazer just adds to the whole look and pulls everything together! Perfect day time look.
Then if you are heading out later and want to dress it up more, all you have to do is switch up your shoes and shirt and BOOM! Perfect evening outfit! Switching out these pieces is so quick and easy and gives this same skirt a more fancy vibe!
I also think that if you keep the solid color top on all day and just quickly change up your shoes I also think that is a great day to night look…and all you did was switch up the shoes!
Fashion does not have to be complicated. I think it is fun to mix and match the pieces you have in your closet and make a ton of new outfits with what you already have. I also think switching things up, like a classic black skirt, and finding ways to wear it day and night is a lot of fun! Don’t be afraid to mix and match and try things together that you might not initially think go together. Thats whats so fun about fashion. Take something that seems like it is so basic or boring, like a plain black skirt, and find one with a little more personality, or by mixing and matching difernt tops, jackets or shoes…it becomes a whole new look everytime!
