Look of the Week – Leather Skirts and Pants


Leather equals rock, most of the time. But today, everyone is rocking their leather and faux leather pants, and skirts like there’s no tomorrow! I love the look,  and have added leather pieces to my own wardrobe since last fall. I am wearing them more and more. The more I wear them, the more comfortable they get. Just don’t get stuck wearing those tight leather ensembles without A/C! That will be one sticky situation. You may want to keep some talcum powder with you if you do sweat a lot. It’s just a good idea to have it with you. I have found outfits, complete from head to toe for examples of some great leather looks. But only after you check out pictures of people rocking their leather goods on the streets.

Look of the Week – Valentine’s Outfit: Whimsical Skirt 


I love this outfit so much! The whole ensemble goes so well together. The black and white striped bodycon top is perfectly form fitting on this model. The whimsical red skirt is the highlight of the outfit. It brings together the look of love! Worn with black stiletto pumps, with bow ties around the ankle. So adorable. If you love this Valentine’s look, reblog or like it! Thanks

Look of the Week – Button-Up Skirts


This week’s look is highly trending and easy to find to buy. That is, if you don’t have one already. These fashionable skirts show off your waistline and give you a skinny look with it’s A-Line design. I love them in the burgundy and raspberry colors. You can match pretty much any top with these button-up skirts. They’re so versatile. You can make them look casual or dress the outfit up with a beautiful top. However you wear it, just know you’re in style.

Look of the Week -December 4

NAVY AND BRONZE MIDI SKIRT  
We all know that miniskirts have been in-style for some time now. But some of you were just now starting to take to the trend. Here’s a beautiful holiday skirt that you can wear during the day for business or at night to a holiday party. The gorgeous bronze reminds you of sparkling, white holidays. Added to that outfit are some strappy navy sandals. The thin straps around the ankle and strap around the toes, elongate the foot and help enlongate the legs too. Pair this outfit with a white blouse, any style will work. So long as it is small in the waist so it may tuck in the skirt. Or, a white crop top would also be appropriate. I hope you all can find a midi skirt as glamorous yet sophisticated as this one. What a wonderful outfit to wear that makes you feel so beautiful!

Look of the Week -Hers

Trends to try: 

MIDI SKIRT WITH CROPPPED TOP
  
Forget the mini and the maxi, midi skirts are the only length worth wearing. The most effortless way to rock a midi skirt is to choose one in a bold color and allow it to break up your look.

  
Skirts can be tricky. Don’t have the legs for a mini? Can’t stand maxi’s? This fall, the midi silhouette is really making its mark. 

  
The trend has been trying to infiltrate the fashion world for a while now, but now it’s really catching on and since fall is coming up, you should definitely add a midi to your wardroom! It may seem more 1950’s than today, but it’s an easy, breezy way to stay cool while looking super chic. 

  

  
Best worn with heels and a crop top. The miniskirt it’s right below the knees and it’s not too tight. The high-low proportion makes for a flattering & elongagating combination, and works well with all body types. 

  
If you choose a printed midi, break up your look with neutral separates and accent your outfit with complementing accessories like a neck scarf and clutch. While balance in prints and color is important, avoid veering too feminine by countering with edgy touches. A leather moto jacket and studded clutch make for the perfect additions.

  
A flouncy midi skirt is a feminine statement piece, so let yourself feel girlie and wear a strand of pearls or bow-adorned heels. Now that’s how you really own a trend. 

  
If you opt for a striped midi, vertical lines are always the most flattering as they give off the illusion of a longer line. 

  • Who says your midi skirt has to flare out? If you’re petite, a more fitted style with a leg slit might do you justice. Find one in a fun print and let it take center stage by completing your outfit with neutral accoutrements.
  • On the other hand, loose, flowy silhouettes can be superflattering too. If you need to add a little structure, a fedora with a straight brim or edgy leather wedge boots will strike the right balance.

Take a look at these other pairings of midis skirts with crop tops. These outfits already have all the right accessories picked out. How much easier can it be to get inspiration??
