5 Ways to Style a Skirt

When I am choosing pieces for my wardrobe, versatility is key. When I find a piece I love, I can immediately picture so many different ways to wear it. When I came across this high-waisted black skirt, I knew it would be a piece that I would wear on repeat, and I have.

I wanted to show how you could take a simple piece and transform it into some many different looks. I started with the skirt and then began to find tops that would look good tucked into a high-waisted skirt.

The first look that I put together is this grey and black outfit. What drew me to this sweater is the pop of skin on the shoulders. I love the cut with the ruffles. It is so flattering and adds a touch of sexiness without overdoing it.

The second look that I did was a simple t-shirt style top with a black and white graphic print. The bold print of the top complemented the skirt perfectly.

For the third look, I decided to do this long-sleeve, black and white striped top with a knot on the front. The design of the stripes has a slimming effect and the front knot help to define the waist.

The fourth look I wanted to be a bit more sexy than the others. So I went with this off the shoulder top. The stripes add a pop of color and the ruffles around the shoulders add a sweet touch.

For the fifth and final look, I wanted to play on all the looks together. The cold-shoulder cut of the top, the black and white stripes, the long sleeves, and the ruffles around the top all combine to make this look.

For each look, I went with the same black pumps and simple jewelry. You could change those up, even more, to make each look unique to you. All you have to do is add a pop color with your accessories. I decided to keep it simple to highlight the tops in each look.
