Geometric

Although I love this skirt, I have a feeling that it is going to be hard to style many more ways.  If anyone has any other suggestions for it, feel free to let me know :)

  3. Hi Tara, I
    have been lurking at your blog for some time now and I just love your style for
    its colorfulness! Since you don’t shy away from colorful outfits, I would
    suggest to pair the skirt with either a green sweater or a yellow blouse to
    really set off the print – possibly muted by a neutral cardigan or blazer if
    you need to tone it down. Oh, and any nude top would of course work, too. And
    if you are brave, any other print (e.g. polka dots or stripes) picking up the
    navy or purple of the skirt can be cute. I am looking forward to you venturing
    into new pairings with this lovely skirt!

  4. Love it paired with the chambray and layering! Don't you have a cobalt blue blouse? I think it would look gorgeous with it!

  5. purple goes very well with hunter green. Try a green sweater/cardigan for color or all the grays and creams for neutrals:) I love your blog because our styles is so similar. We have so much of the same pieces especially from LOFT. Thanks for the many inspirations. Where can I find that navy stripe kinda peplum top you pointed a few days back? HELP!!

  6. huh, no idea. i never even would have thought of this outfit, which looks lovely, btw :)

  7. I would have to think.... but I think this look is brilliant. I love the shirt peeking out from under the sweater!

  12. Pastel pink oxfords! Or even a pastel blue oxford. Or white... I really like the chambray with it though, looks so sophisticated. Great skirt choice!

  13. I love how you've styled your skirt today! That's one of those items that would cause me to think too hard about what to pair it with, but as I've learned from you - you don't have to be matchy. :) I'm with Sharon S. I think cobalt blue or chambray would be marvelous! I can't wait to see what you come up with!

  14. I love the pattern of this skirt, very pretty!

  19. It's so pretty. I think it would look really good with a white blouse and a pretty, colorful statement necklace. And heels :) Also I think it would look good with a black blouse or t-shirt and a leather jacket. Just some ideas!

  22. black and white stripes? bright green? I'm sure if you play around with whats in your closet you'll come up with a lot more ways to wear it!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Love the outfit. You could try it with a button top and a cardigan, or a t-shirt and blazer for a more casual look. What about pairing it with your J Crew polka dot sequin top? A black turtleneck perhaps.

  25. Oooh I love that skirt too! I can't wait to see how you style it. The chambray blouse alone would be pretty too. :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. This skirt is so cute, and you are rocking it. I think it would also look great with teal or blue, like the gorgeous cobalt blue blouse you wore a few posts ago! It would also be fabulous with black tights and boots!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Cute skirt! I quickly pulled together some simple ideas here: http://i47.tinypic.com/33pc7b7.jpg

  28. I think pairing different shoes and accessories are going to be key! It looks great the way you've styled it here!

  29. Love this skirt. I think you could style it different ways for sure! Can't wait to see how you do.

  31. It would look great with a turqouise/blue top, or a yellow top in the summer!

    ReplyDelete
  32. LOVE this outfit! A navy or white blouse with a statement necklace would be alternative options. Or a jean jacket layered with a fuscia top would work too! I see that this skirt is dry clean only though...in your experience, do you always dry clean these items or do you try to hand wash at home?

  38. I love today's styling with the skirt. I'm wondering about a yellow or orange top with it. I also think I'd love a navy sequined top like jCrew has layered with a chambray like today's look.

  39. I think you should think of the skirt as a "neutral" and the skies the limit!

  40. That was probably the first thing that popped in my head when I was tempted to click buy on this skirt. White shirt with statement jewelry, pink sweater, something yellow? Good luck with that skirt my friend :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. love it! really like it with the denim underneath. What about with a white tee/cami, black blazer and great necklace?!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Love this combo!! What about pairing it with yellow? Or some subtle polka dots?

    ReplyDelete
  53. Love both suggestions....now I need to find something gold haha

    ReplyDelete
  54. Thanks! I've been meaning to pick up a navy blouse, this should be my incentive! I definitely don't wash skirts every time I wear them...but yes, I would bring this to the drycleaners....I also have dryel at home, not sure I would use it on this skirt though

    ReplyDelete
  55. Thanks! I think I will try a blazer....and I'll play around with the sequined top and see if that will work!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Stripes could be fun, I'll have to try it and see how it looks :) And the green is brilliant, thanks!

  63. Thanks, I will definitely try those!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Love this suggestion, will have to try the dots!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Thanks so much! I will have to try green :) I think that top you are referring to was from Target

    ReplyDelete
  66. I do, I will have to try cobalt!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Thank you so much, I do really love color! For some reason this skirt stumps me though! I do love the suggestion of green and yellow and will have to play around with it! And I think polka dots could be really fun too!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Love the sequin idea, thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  69. maybe it might be hard to style, but doesnt mean it's not one great skirt. i think we're all allowed to have one of those unique items once in a while.

    That was really sweet of the first commenter to suggest those other styling options. I totally love the skirt!

  71. Love it!! I love the layering. The chambray gives the outfit another dimension. Hmmm other ways to style it? Besides the obvious black or navy shirt or sweater, no idea. I wonder what the designers had in mind when they created it.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Just wondered if this skirt is a petite or regular length. I am 5'3" and sometimes I feel like these pencils are too long on me. If this is a petite do you wear the same size as in the regular length or do you go up a size. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  73. This is petite length...and I generally go up a size :) I'm 5'2 by the way, so we are close in height :)

    ReplyDelete
  74. this is a really pretty combo of purple and gray. i'm sure you will come up with many creative combinations...can't wait to see :)
