I recently found myself shopping online with Stage.com and came across this gorgeous XOXO skirt. As soon as I set eyes on it outfit pairings started flooding in my mind. I love finding pieces of clothing that inspire me. This is definitely one of those kind of pieces.
The skirts offers a back gold tone zipper closure, front welt pockets, subtle stretch fit, and 6 gold buttons. It is on the shorter side, but is the length that I like to wear my skirts, especially since it is pretty much hot here year round.
I know, purchasing a skirt that isn’t black or navy may seem scary for some. The thought of “what can I pair it with” might come to mind, but the truth is, there is a lot you can pair with a bright and bold colored skirt. For instance; florals, polka dots, and even stripes can be paired. Since the skirt is a solid color pairing is simple. If you want to wear it with pieces already in your wardrobe, a simple black or brown top will work perfectly. It is all about a balance.
For this particular pairing, with the skirt I chose a burgundy top, flats and a oriental floral print scarf. The printed scarf adds interest and ties in additional colors and textures, while the dark top balances out the look.
For a sun shining day running around town I found this ensemble comfortable, cheery, and fall ready! Look forward to seeing this skirt styled a few more ways this season as I cannot get enough of it!
