So I bought this but how do I style it?

It's so comfy and fits well.... I was thinking t shirt and wedges if it ever gets warm? Any other ideas?

A blousey type top, hippyish, buttons half way down, maybe floral? Cotton. With long hoppy earrings and sandals. <dreaming of summer>

PetiteMum Wed 27-Mar-13 22:02:15's summery really isn't it....... Hmmmm........ Will it look frumpy with boots

Oh no. Plymouth Brethren skirt. With a headscarf.

And saying "how do I style this"??? I think you mean "what can I wear with this". See above for suggestion.

Much more fun to 'style' that just 'wear'.

Petitemum do a search on long denim skirt on pininterest for ideas like this very classic look or this lovely summer combo.

Also lovely with a Breton tucked in - I think with a maxi skirt you need to keep the top half fitted.

Ooh, thanks for the ideas! The classic is a bit too boring for me though I like the clean lines.... Hmmmm... I'm quite booby and have never found the the perfect white shirt.....

Libertychick, I think perhaps WipsGlitter was suggesting that the skirt is not very stylish.

Opps blush - Sorry WipsGlitter
Hyper alert for the 'how dare anyone ever think about what they wear' brigade!

I'd wear a vest or v tight t shirt with it.
I wouldn't buy but I've been involved in convos about these skirts recently
I think they scream mum ( in a bad way ) kool people I know think they are amazing

I'd go grunge - converse, graphic tee, biker jacket. You really need to edge up a skirt like that to avoid looking Per Una.
