Tan suede skirts are proving to be one of the new ‘it’ items this autumn / winter, and of course I wanted to try one out in my wardrobe! (Confession: I bought 5 different styles to try on at home before settling on this one…) But considering I didn’t have anything this colour in my wardrobe already, I wanted to make sure it really worked for me. So, I gave myself a challenge: style the skirt for three occasions in ways that you feel confident wearing and you can keep it.
Without further waffling let me show off my second look: Going Out Style.
For this look I wanted to keep the top white (I just love how it really pops against the skirt!), so I swapped the office button down for an unstructured vest top. This one is soft and has movement, which I think compliments the how structured the skirt is. A top in black or denim or breton stripes would also work well here!
Because the top has a V neck – and I’m intending to wear this out for an evening! – I wanted to wear a statement necklace. I picked this one up on ASOS, and I love the triangle silhouette for wearing with V necks, but any statement necklace would do.
Lastly: the shoes. I put on my trusty heeled ankle boots which I love to wear on nights out, and which I think go with pretty much everything! If I wasn’t wearing tights I’d probably have put on a pair of open toe heeled sandals, ideally ones with a platform to play up the 1970’s vibes. I don’t have a pair of over-the-knee boots (yet…!), but I think black ones in that style would look ace with this outfit.
I’d wear this outfit to dinner and drinks (or maybe my next date night!), but probably night for a night out dancing – I’d want something a bit more sparkly for that. Also something machine washable incase a drink is spilled on me! This outfit would be great for post-work drinks, all I’d need to do is change the shirt before leaving the office, and either wear the heels to work or swap flats for them.
What do you think of this style? Will you be upgrading your AW15 wardrobe to include a tan skirt?
Yesterday I blogged this skirt as an office look, and tomorrow I’ll show it styled for an off duty weekend look.
