Nice weather is finally hitting us here in NY and Im taking full advantage of it. Today’s outfit was built around this amazing skirt I purchased from Forever 21. It has 3 of my must-have components- inexpensive, sexy, and dual purpose (work and after-work appropriate). I paired it with the sheer hobo top I purchased from Nordstroms, sexy tights, a H&M blazer and my awesome Dollhouse Oxfords.
Tell me what you think!!
|I KNOW MY HEAD’S CUT OFF LOL, BUT I JUST WANTED TO SHOW THE ALMOST AFRICAN TYPE PRINT ON THIS FIERCE SKIRT. TO DIE FOR!!!!|
As much as I like this outfit, I do believe I was playing it safe in terms of staying in the black and white family. Next time I wear this skirt, I will definetly sport it with color. I’m thinking:
- -pairing it with a bold color top (aqua, teal, salmon, yellow, etc)
- -Coloful accessories like bangles, statement earrings and necklace, even a scarf
- Most important, a colorful shoe-sandals or heels in aqua, teal, salmon, etc.
Why it would work?The skirt is a statement piece in itself with its tribal angular shapes in a universal color-black. Because of this, doing an almost color blocking method utilizing colors from the other side of the color spectrum provides visual interest.
