Hello stylish and beautiful people! I've got four skirts which I currently don't have tops to go with. I've uploaded pictures of them to my profile and I was hoping you could either tell me what to put with them or break it to me if they should be heading to the bin.
I thought that at least the checked one and the blue one would be suitable for work (office environment formal-ish).
The only one I like is the last one (cream/black flared) which I would wear with a fitted black jumper, black opaques and mary-janes for a semi formal office look or with tights, flat knee boots and a cream chunky knit and denim or leather jacket for casual.
The others I would chuck, but that's just me so feel free to ignore
I like the first one - the large check/tartan one. I'd probably wear that with a black top or shirt tucked in to show off the waist with killer black heels. In this weather, also black opaques. Could also work with boots.
I'm afraid I think the second one is dire, the blue looks dull in the photo but it's very simple so it may be that it's lovely on - what's the fit like?
Not sure of the last one - could be nice or fabric may make it a bit granny-ish
I like the first one, which is rather VW inspired. I'd wear it with black opaques, a black top and black wedges or heeled ankle boots - but I am the queen of black! I could be tempted to put a cropped military or Chanel-esque jacket over the black top too.
I think the first one's easy as you can pair it with black.
The second one looks more of a summer skirt. I don't think it's that bad - a summer holiday skirt to me.
I really like the third one. Is it M&S by any chance? It was your description that sounded like a skirt I own but in black. Anyway, I'd pair that either with a black, cream or white blouse and accessorise elsewhere with blue. I think that'd be perfect for work.
I'm less keen on the fourth one but I'd pair it with black as with the first.
