Closet Strategy: Striped Skirt

Happy Wednesday! Time for another Closet Strategy post!

Forever 21 striped skirt
In a previous post, I emphasized the importance of a good striped top, but I think that a striped skirt is equally as important. They're surprisingly versatile and depending on the cut, they're comfortable and chic! Here are some ways I style my navy striped skirt:

Outfit 1: Chambray-ed





As always, denim looks good with everything, including a striped skirt. Since this look is quite basic, its once again up to the accessories to save the outfit from becoming boring. This is a great outfit for brunch with the girls.

Top: Forever 21 chambray blouse
Accessories: H&M belt, H&M clutch
Shoes: Glaze by Adi sandals

Outfit 2: Stripes on Stripes Crime



I like extending the stripes on the skirt to the top - it's challenging but when done correctly, can look fresh and chic! Just make sure the stripes are different in some way. In my case the stripes are different in width, but this can easily be swapped with stripes in a different color. I like wearing this outfit to go shopping for more cute clothes. 

Top: Lefties striped tank
Accessories: H&M belt, Nine West bag, GAP bracelet, red and silver bangles from French boutique
Shoes: Michael Antonio pumps

Outfit 3: Color-blocked





This is one of my favorite looks - color blocking navy and hot pink! I think this is a cute color combination that I don't use as often as I'd like to. I paired the outfit with neutral accessories to keep the look from becoming overwhelming. I'd suggest this look for a casual date or a girl's night out.

Top: Stradivarius blouse
Accessories: Bershka cross-body bag, Vintage aviators
Shoes: Steve Madden Getta pumps
