You've probably noticed that I have a thing for skirts - particularly circle skirts. They're so festive, fun, and fancy. Over the past few years, I've accumulated a number of statement skirts that typically turn heads. This post includes only a handful of them, along with potential shoe pairings. Perhaps I'll create another post to highlight a few of my other notable skirts. (1) Pleated skirts have been back for a few years now, and this skirt takes it to another level with the metallic effect. Yes, it may look like aluminum foil, but I can make it work. I can go simple and do a basic black or white top, or I can go over the top and do something brighter and more vibrant. We'll see...
Zara skirt. Prada peep toe pumps.
(2) This skirt is a few years old and I've worn it a handful of times. It's your basic circle skirt, but the red is so rich, and that's what's making the statement here. The bold printed shoes bring the skirt to life.
I wore this dress while hanging out with my family on Saturday. I bought it at the beginning of the summer from H&M, but never wore it. It had shoulder straps, but for some reason it just didn't fit right, so I cut them off...
You can see the details of the dress in this closeup picture. I layered a tank underneath to conceal my bra straps. I can switch up the color of the tank or layer a cropped denim vest on top to change up the look a bit.
We've all heard the expression "less is more" - and I think that is certainly true in some situations. However, I also subscribe to the theory that "more is more." There are times when I want to be bold, ostentatious and over-the-top - and it can work, with the right pieces.
This is my "evening look" from last week's "Girls Getaway"- and I went with not 1, not 2, but 3 statement pieces. Sounds like a bit much, right?
