What top to wear with this skirt?

So i recently got Skirt this skirt, thinking of wearing it for an adults birthday party, christmas parties, that kind of thing, so quite smart. I'm not sure what to wear it with though. Any suggestions welcome but what do you think about a fairly plain black cami?

I don't think a black cami would go with it. A blush coloured one like the shirt the model is wearing in the picture or maybe a navy blue would look good.

Where would you start looking for a blush coloured top? I don't feel like I want to wear a shirt with it, something a bit less voluminous.

Blush here, it also comes in Ivory which I have and is lovely:

I would start with google! Topshop has a nice one.

black with navy is very drab

I'd go with something in a blue to match, maybe the green of the stalks? Twinsettish maybe

I don't like it, not that I was asked.

Thanks both. CanISay - is the top fitted or loose?

I'd wear it with a cashmere jumper or great quality t-shirt (or cheaper alternative) tucked in. That's quite on trend I think.

Not black but one of the colours in the skirt as pp mentioned before.

* cheaper alternative to a cashmere jumper , not tshirt

I dislike the blush that the girl has on. Its not good. You need to pick up the colours from the blue/green in the skirt imo. Is it teal? If so, thats your colour.

The picture on the model is a good representation... Fitted enough to tuck into a skirt and look good but loose enough to wear with skinny jeans and be flattering.

I have the Topshop cami in black and agree with CanISayOfHerFace with the fit. It is a really lovely top.

Yes I'd agree with tucked in tee and necklace. Maybe grey? This kind of look.

I like the look of that one however am always wary of elasticated drop waists which can result in "When are you due? " chats.

I always think French connection are awash with blush.

muchasSmoochas - that's the kind of fit i'm thinking of. I think a loose t-shirt type thing would dress it down.

msrisotto Mon 21-Sep-15 08:22:03

This maybe?

msrisotto Mon 21-Sep-15 08:25:16

I like this top even if it doesn't work with the skirt. It might be too sparkly with it.
