"Florals for spring, groundbreaking" The Devil Wears Prada
If you’re days away from packing up your spring or summer skirts for good, hold it right there! (Those of us in the South know how this weather can be).
You can transition to your warm-weather favorites by brushing up on some basic layering techniques and learning some new tricks along the way because let’s get real: There’s more to layering than slapping on a cardigan and calling it a day. Here are some street style inspired tips for how to wear summer skirts year-round.
One of the positives of the mixed weather is a chance to recycle your spring wardrobe. Or even your winter one. I have decided to do a "Four Season's Lookbook" on how to wear staple pieces for each season without breaking the bank. This will be a series that will lead up to the final season: winter.
One piece of clothing that any woman can wear is a skirt. Since there are so many different styles, you can find one that works best for your body shape and pair it with other pieces to create a look suited just for you! Whether you’re a pleated skirt kind of lady, or you prefer pencil skirts, these 4 looks will definitely give you inspiration. Try them out and see if you can create similar looks with your wardrobe.
First look is spring. Spring style always makes me think feminine; from romantic silhouettes to pretty floral prints. At the beginning of spring I always go a little crazy for those feminine statement pieces. I got this look from a local thrift store and love the intricate detailing and scalloped hem with the feminine bright floral print! Although it's long sleeve, but it is very light weight which is perfect for cooler evenings. This look was perfect to wear with my all time favorite forest green pleated skirt. I wanted to tone the look down by adding taupe platform open toe sandals (did I mention it came from the thrift store for $3). I completed this ensemble with a forest green clutch and gold belt just to add small detailing.
This look can be created with any skirt you have in your wardrobe but the entire objective is to use a look you wore in the spring while creating different looks without breaking the bank and spending money on things you will wear only once. Stay tuned for the summer's look next week. We are about to save money y'all!
