STYLE GURU STYLE: Statement Skirt

April 8th, 2015 at 2:10am

I don’t care what anyone says; there’s nothing more fun than a swingy, fun skirt. All the better for twirling, right? Well, alice + olivia‘s fall 2015 ready-to-wear collection understood the power of a statement skirt, and that’s really all that matters. Whether you’re more into monochromatic color schemes or you love a pop of color or, like me, you’re somewhere in between, there’s always gong to be a skirt for you. The truth is that skirts are often more comfortable than pants—not to mention they’re perfect for transition to events throughout the day. Class to internship to date night to meet the parents? No problem.

I wore this salmon-colored, pleated skirt for a simple walk downtown with my boyfriend to grab some coffee. I wanted something comfortable yet casual and this skirt seemed like the most low key, cozy item I had clean that day. So I paired the skirt with my usual, go-to gray T-shirt, some white Converse (my recent favorites) and some basic accessories and I was good to go. While I love the pale orange tone of the skirt, I would love to have this same skirt in black—black, after all, goes with everything. Salmon, on the other hand, can be a little difficult to pair with pieces. However, when it comes to statement pieces that I really love, I always make it work. If you stock your closet with neutrals, even the craziest statement pieces and/or skirts should find their way into your outfits.
