First things first, Happy Friday and welcome to Closet Classics! I’m so excited to be starting this series on my blog.It’s going to be all about my closet classics! Pieces that never go out of style and can be worn in a variety of different ways on different occasions!
The first piece in my closet classics, is an A-line Skirt.I have about four A-line skirts but this fuchsia pleated one I recently purchased has to be my favorite! I love it because it’s bright and playful. My personal style could be described as modern classic, which is why A-Line skirts work perfectly for me but they fit into other styles as well.
I wear my skirts everywhere because it’s very easy to dress them up or down with a few simple switches. I’m a full time student, so when I go to school I want to look nice but I want to be comfortable as well. If I’m wearing my skirt to school or any other casual setting, I’ll dress it down.
I accomplish this look by pairing my skirts with a solid colored shirt, tucked in at the waist. My favorite casual look with an a-line skirt is a button up denim shirt or a solid scoop neck tee.For shoes, I recommend a pair of flats or sandals, leopard or any other wild print flats are a great way to make a statement while still being comfortable and cute. Plus leopard is essentially a neutral and can be worn with almost everything.
If I want to dress it up, I switch to a lace blouse, a collard shirt or a shirt with a print on it, again tucked in at the waist. Leopard and Polka dots are my go to. Instead of wearing flats, I’ll put on a pair of heels and put on some jewelry. A statement necklace, stacked bracelets or a pair of statement studs are easy ways to add more dimension to your outfit as well.My only rule about accessorizing comes from CoCo Chanel,when accessorizing, always take off the last thing you put on. You don’t want your jewelry overpowering you. You want to wear the outfit, you don’t want the outfit to wear you.
If you have more of a laid back style, I’d wear a screen tee instead of a button up, or even a crop top and a pair of sneakers for a casual look. If you want to dress it up, I’d keep the screen tee on and maybe add a bikers jacket. For shoes I’d go with a pair of booties or a chunky heel, because they’re usually fairly comfortable but still have the ability to up an outfit. For accessorize I would go with thin layered necklaces, statement rings or a wide brim floppy hat.
I hope you enjoyed todays post! If you wear A-line skirts, tell me how you style yours in the comments below! I hope you have an amazing weekend!
Pssss. If you live in California, wasn’t the rain insane on Monday!? It’s good because we need rain, saying California is in a drought would be putting it lightly but oh my god, it was crazy! It was the first time in my life rain and hail have ever woken me up. Sorry about that if you don’t live in California but honestly, rain is a rarity and Monday was crazy.
