Striped Midi Skirt, Two Ways


Location: Downtown San Diego, CA

Ahh the versatile midi skirt; how I love it so. I got this particular midi skirt from Tobi and I absolutely love the fabrication and fit! I had so much fun styling this skirt and coming up with different looks for different occasions. We are going to start with the more buttoned up, classy look and work our way down to the casual, fun look.

1) Sweater Chic

So I've been seeing a lot of sweaters tucked into skirts this Spring and I gotta say, I'm a fan. This look gives you the best of both worlds - the cozy look and feel of the sweater plus the flattering fit of a body con midi skirt. I got this sweater from H&M in a size large to give it an oversized quality.

This is something I would definitely wear out or to a weekend brunch. I was trying to think of ways to make this office-appropriate (since the slit shows off a little too much leg). I decided to add a lightweight tan duster jacket (similar here) and that elevated the look to something I would feel comfortable working in. I love the combo of black and white stripes and any tan/camel color.

2) Casually Graphic

This look was really fun to create because I got to mix paisley, stripes, AND graphics. This weekend look is super comfy and cool while remaining flattering and stylish. It feels like sweats but it looks like I put a little time into my look. That's the beauty of mixing patterns and having staple pieces (like this midi skirt) ready for action in your closet.
