Like I said in my post yesterday, I love layering when it gets colder outside and, luckily for me, it looks like it’s going to get colder this weekend. The plaid skirt I’m wearing above is one I got on eBay for $3! I love the pleats in it. I paired it with a graphic tee, beanie, tights, combat boots, and an oversized cranberry cardigan for a slouchy look.
I like skirts because they can be feminine, but they don’t always have to be. You can also play around with patterns and lengths. It’s hard to tell, but this is a polka dot skirt–it’s actually a tennis skirt! 😂–but I like it. I also found it for $3 at a thrift store.
It may seem hard to make an outfit incorporating a skirt, but it’s really not! 😜 Just play around with what sort of shirt you want to pair with one—a plain tee or a button down for a more professional look, or a tank or graphic tee for a more casual one.
I also like to play around with the shoes I wear. Combat boots give an edge, while short ankle boots give height and are fun. Tights give a more structured look, while knee socks are more fun. The red skirt I used in both of these pictures I got for $2 at a thrift store!
I ❤ thrifting so much! What’s your favorite way to layer or use a skirt in outfits?
