You may not (yet) know I?m a big fan of only buying clothes that can be used in multiple outfits for multiple different occasions. Having a wardrobe full of one-hit wonders really limits a girl?s outfit choices, which is not good.
Thus, I’ve been working hard to assess pieces of clothing well before I buy them. I try to always think of at least 3-4 different ways/occasions I can use a piece of clothing for before I buy it. If I can’t put a couple of outfits together in my head using pieces I already own, the new one doesn’t come home with me.
I personally have this chevron skirt and I LOVE it! It?s been a great piece to add to my wardrobe. I?ve worn it to work and for nights out. It?s a little harder to make this skirt casual, but I?m up for the challenge! 🙂
Wear to Work
Here?s my wear to work outfit. It features a berry colored button up with a subtle dot pattern. The berry color is so popular this winter. I also added a black velvet blazer. The velvet adds some texture to the outfit and a blazer makes the outfit look sharp enough to wear at work. I also included a cream handbag, which pulls the cream from both the skirt?s pattern and the shirt?s pattern. There are two shoe choices included in this outfit. Berry heels work well with the color of the shirt, but this outfit could also be worn with cream or black shoes as well.
The next outfit I put together is a casual look using the same chevron patterned skirt. I included a graphic tee to make the outfit feel more relaxed. The red moto jacket gives this outfit a little bit of edge and the chevron necklace is a great accessory that mimics the skirt?s pattern. Moto boots finish off the look and have a low heel for days that involve lots of walking or standing.
The final look I put together using this versatile chevron skirt would be great for a night out on the town with your girlfriends, or on a date. I chose a light pink, loose chiffon blouse which would look amazing tucked into the skirt?s high waist. A black lace jacket gives this outfit a little more jazz, but you could easily swap it out for a less dressy jacket if you prefer. I found these adorable gator print heeled booties that I couldn?t resist showing you and a gator print clutch to hold your essentials while you?re out and about.
As you can see, this skirt is very versatile and can be worn for many different occasions depending on what you pair it with. You can also make great use of it in the cold by adding black tights or leggings. I have worn my skirt with black leggings and black riding boots to work on some pretty cold days. Especially if you find some high quality, thicker leggings, you can get more wear out of the skirts in your closet by wearing them year-round.
The pieces I featured today are also all fairly cheap, which is great if you are looking for fashion on a budget!
