Hello readers! Yes, an actual outfit post. Complete with something new!
Mum sent me a skirt for my birthday in addition to the lovely trench coat. It’s a super cute, high-waist, pencil/bodycon skirt. The only problem is that it’s pretty “revealing” in terms of how stretchy/tight it is (the seams from my tights show through very clearly – evidently I need seamless tights or spanx?), plus the light colour. I know usually these skirts are styled with a tucked in or (gasp!) crop top. Unfortunately, crop tops aren’t really my style and, despite our lack of dress code, probably not work appropriate. At least, not in Dunedin.
So what to do? I decided to style the skirt with a long sheer top and a belt.
I must say, I find it interesting how light colours do make a person look quite different. Admittedly I’m not the thinnest I’ve ever been at the moment, but I think this particular skirt makes me look like I’m quite pear-shaped (when in actual fact I’m more like a slightly rectangular hourglass).
I’m not sure I’m 100% satisfied with this look, but it’s a difficult skirt to make work (not forgiving in the slightest). How else would you style this pencil/bandage skirt?
