Pencil skirts are my jam but many of my clients aren’t fans of skirts- of any kind! When I dug a little more, I found that it wasn’t skirts they didn’t love- they just weren’t sure how to wear them, and usually hated the idea of tucking in a tee or top. Since tucking in is my go-to look, I had fun finding other ways to style them with skirts.
Here are three untucked ways to rock those skirts stuffed in the back of your closet:
In other news, I’m absolutely loving this pastel pink skirt - the color, the fit, and the feel is amazing. It’s super soft and comfy, so I decided to check out the fabric on the care label. I found out that it’s made of rayon, which is sometimes hailed as a more environmentally friendly fabric. Naturally, I wanted to dig in and learn more.
When culottes first made an appearance in cool girl magazines and insta feeds, painful memories of gauchos from high school came flooding in. *Shudder* I remember feeling like I was walking the halls with two capes fluttering around my calves. Gauchos never fit quite right, not for lack or trying, or seemed to truly coordinate with any top or shoes I paired them with.
Thankfully, culottes are a hundred times more fab than gauchos. And not just culottes, but everything about the comfy chic trend- I’m absolutely in love with harem pants, wide leg pants, palazzos, culottes, joggers, jumpsuits, and the list goes on. Looking like a boss while essentially wearing my PJs to work?! Sign me up! This minimalist culotte jumpsuit I snagged at the Urban Outfitters surplus store on a trip to Chicago (the only one in the country!) is one of my fav ways of looking like I’m way cooler than I actually am.
I’m in love with classic white pieces, and this Banana Republic top is one of my favs. I created this outfit by ‘shopping my closet’- and a friend at work actually asked me if the top was new! Score.
Shopping your closet is easier than you think. Here are three things I’ve found helpful-
Though I absolutely love this piece and styling it different ways, I also decided to dig in to Banana Republic, one of my favorite places to find unique pieces like this top.
