The 1970’s are back in style featuring fringing, flared jeans and all things suede. And it seems like every high street retailer has a version of this tan suede skirt. If you’ve been reading my blog this week you’ll know that I’ve been challenging myself to style this skirt for three occasions in ways I feel confident wearing so that I could keep it.
With a office look and going out style published, it’s time for my third look: Off Duty Style.
Hurrah, it’s nearly the weekend! Time for brunches, market wandering and lazy days. With that in mind I put together my third look for the tan suede skirt, aiming for an even balance of chic, comfy (always!) and cool.
When I first put this together I popped on a t-shirt and then remembered it’s October and that the weather is getting chilly, so I swapped the t-shirt for long sleeves. I like this top because it’s a roll neck (on trend and will keep me warm!) with a classic stripe pattern and offers a bit of intrigue with the midriff crop. Other tops that would look great for this look include denim shirts, and anything featuring white / black / navy as a dominant colour.
Because the top’s stripes are in black and white, I decided to go for a matchy look with my black and white Vans. Bonus: they’re comfy for long walks through London. If I wanted to dress this look up I could put on heeled ankle boots, over-the-knee boots or even loafers.
This pterodactyl necklace (made from sustainable wood) is one of my favourite necklaces, and it’s brown colour pairs well with the tan skirt. Because of this I feel like it really helped tie the outfit together, offering a nice contrast to the black and white stripes.
