Summer Wedding Guide: Skirt the Issue
Try the options I suggested with dresses yesterday but with a skirt you have or are considering purchasing: try something fancier, then make it funky with a more casual piece. For example, what about a floral A-line skirt (like this one from Asos Curve) with a button down or, for spring, a cardigan worn buttoned up like a sweater? What about a statement skirt with a simple silky tank or a shirt you could also wear to work after the wedding? Or a bright skirt like this one paired with a jacket in a similar hue (like the one above!)
Or, try something simple and pair it with a fancier item: a pencil skirt (here's a great maternity one) suddenly feels special with a soft, silky shirt you'd never wear to work and bright heels instead of neutrals. Add a cat eye, and you’re ready to go.
Pick a Pattern or Stay Within a Color Family
Another thing to think about with separates is whether you want to do pattern with pattern, pattern with a solid in the same color family, pattern with a solid in a color that’s a contrasting color, solids in contrasting colors, or monochrome. Need more skirt inspiration? Find it here.
It would also be beautiful to have a stunning skirt in a color then to riff off of that color in the rest of your outfit. Like this dress+blazer combo below, but with a skirt and top.
