Closely associated with a blue mood, January is never the most exciting month on the calender!
The Christmas bills have well and truly arrived at this stage, and if you’re anything like us you’ve over spent on all the brilliant sales. 🙁 The purse is firmly shut for now!
So the question is, how do you make the most out of your wardrobe, with things you already own?
Check out these 4 versatile looks, all based around one skirt.
Almost all of us own a black pencil skirt and this item is one staple that will really work hard for your wardrobe. Leather pencil skirts were really popular last winter and have made an appearance again this season. If you don’t already have one, you can shop this faux leather look one above here for €42.
The pencil skirt is a great go to look for work and it’s versatile so it can take you from day to night with just some minor tweaks. We all own a white blouse! Teamed with a pencil skirt for work you look office chic, but play up the look with killer heels and a clutch and you are ready for a relaxing after work dinner or drinks. You can pick the one pictured above up from River Island.
The Crop Top
The crop top was a huge summer trend and the co ord look still is. The perfect blend between sexy and lady like, a crop top paired with a pencil skirt allows you to show off the smallest areas of your body- namely your calves and your waist. For a pop of colour, you can shop this acid yellow one here.
Something that’s pretty enough and has a little detail like this Asos jumper, will take you from day to night easily with a little accessories and a pair of heels. Just throw a blazer over it while you’re at the office.
Like Cheryl, we know the pencil skirt can be a pretty alternative to a dress for a night out at a restaurant, a cocktail bar or a show.
Just pop on a cami, with some interesting back detail, and you’re good to go. An alternative texture, like silk, will work well against the harshness of the leather skirt. Shop this one here.
