Closet Strategy: Skorts

I'm sure you all remember how excited I was to get these fabulous skorts from Zara last year. However I noticed that some people found them to be a style challenge, especially in the colder months. The thing is though, they're actually quite versatile especially in white. Here are some looks I came up with centered around my skorts:



Outfit 1: Monochromatic


I've seen these skorts worn in monochromatic outfits on other fashion blogs and it looked absolutely divine. I say, if it ain't broke, don't fix it! In this case, the monochromatic look works with these skorts so it's safe to say that's a look to try. I did, however, add a coral clutch to the outfit to give it a pop of color. I think this is a great look for happy hour with friends. 

Top: American Eagle top, Forever 21 blazer
Shoes: Michael Kors Caroline pumps


Outfit 2: Informal 





I wanted to dress the skorts down a bit with this look. While this piece is technically shorts, the look of the skirt in the front makes them look somewhat formal so I wanted to play that down with this loose-fitting dolman top. Paired with my Chucks, I'd say this is a great downtown look perfect for sightseeing.

Top: Forever 21 dolman top
Accessories: Forever 21satchel, Icing wayfarers, Forever 21studs
Shoes: Converse lo-tops


Outfit 3: In-betweener 





This look is for things in between formal and casual - perhaps a casual Friday or a girls night? I paired my skorts with this bright red top and added silver and nude toned accessories to the mix to keep the focus on the red. 

Top: Forever 21 sweater
Accessories: Nine West bag, Coach scarf, Vintage pearl studs
Shoes: Chinese Laundry wedges


What do you guys think? Would you give skorts a try?

  2. Great pairings! I love all the different styles. The last one must be my favorite. This could be worn to so many different occasions and I love the bright red top.

  3. I adore these skorts! I was just looking for some in different colors and patterns for summer/spring! F21 & asos had a few similar ones to the skort :)

  4. I love every matching but I think in-betweener is my favourite! I don't own a skort but whenever I see you wearing one I am so jealous of it because they look amazing on you!! x

  13. Your are definitely rocking all three looks! I guess my favorite has to be the look nr.1, it looks so fresh and crisp! Actually I am a big fan of all white outfits, which is weird as I haven't done any all white outfits myself! :D
    And skorts are such a cool piece of clothing, I have to buy a pair for this summer!

  14. I completely forgot about my skort and feel bad since it was pretty expensive... thanks for the reminder ;) I love the monochromatic look, it's somewhere in between casual enough to wear day to day, yet dressy :)

  28. Hi Deborah, you did a great job! I love all your skorts outfits and my favourite is the white-in-white-look :) I own also a pair of skorts but I have to admit that I wore them only in maximum twice :) But after this post I think I should change my habit!
