One Skirt Styled Four Ways

I pinned this adorable polka dot skater skirt on Pinterest the other day and I couldn't stop thinking about it for the rest of the day.  I love a bold piece that's classic and versatile at the same time.  My favorite thing to do when I lock in on a item like that is create different ways to style it.  As I've mentioned before, one of my rules when shopping for myself or a client is that the item being considered for purchase has to have more than one way to style it.  If you buy an item and it can only be used in one outfit than it's kind of a waste in my opinion.  I came up with about ten different looks I could make with the skirt and I decided to share my favorite four with you.


We all know my love of pattern mixing and my first thought when I saw this skirt was, "wear it with stripes...and florals!!"  So I styled an outfit with both.
Skater Skirt: Choies (super affordable and flattering on every figure)
Striped T: Proenza Schouler (a more budget friendly version here)
The Most Amazing Pattern Mixed Sandals: ALDO (they are at the TOP of my wish list!)
Little Red Cross Body Bag: Coach
Floral Scarf: Kate Spade


Neon is HOT right now and it looks great with black and white so I knew this skirt would be the perfect backdrop for some bold neon pieces.
Neon Peplum Top: boohoo
Skirt: Choies
The Most Amazing If-I-Had-The-Funds-They-Would-Be-In-My-Closet Shoes: Sophia Webster
Neon Statement Necklace: Bauble Bar (there is a waiting list for it but it would be worth getting on)
Cross Body Bag: Modcloth


I know, another pattern mix outfit.  I couldn't help myself!  Polka dots are great with so many patterns (as are stripes)!
Crop Top: Mara Hoffman
Skirt: Choies
Lace Up Sandals: Alexander Wang
Clutch: Tiffany's (similar here)
Double Drop Earrings: David Yurman


This is probably my favorite of all the looks.  It's an easy look for lunch out, errands, dinner with friends, mommy on the go or even the office if they allow denim.
Graphic T: Old Navy
Skirt: Choies
Denim Vest: Pendleton
Striped Flats: Forever 21
Red Cross Body Bag: SplurgeSpendSave
Red Link Statement Necklace: GILT

Which of the four styling ideas is your favorite?  And speaking of Pinterest...do you follow me?  If you don't you are missing out, just sayin'!  Follow all the savvy and stylish pinning here!
