I have no fashion sense. I recently acquired two skirts, above knee length but not scandalous. One is a casual medium-dark brown frayed around the bottom, and the other is an olive green corduroy skirt. There's also this casual-dressy medium-grey one too.
I have no idea what you would wear with these! I've never owned bottoms that weren't blue or black before and I'm lost. Google wasn't really much help
What do you think?
Whenever you are in trouble wear black or white with it - it is classic, no mistake. Bright red or bordo color, if you know what that means, can give a very fashionable effect together with some olive green big amber bracelet and necklace with big natural stones dark greenish amber or crystal vintage style.
subscribe to some of the online fashion mags to keep up to date and see what's in style. I get a few each week. I'm not sure what your style is, but it's fun to have a few you look at.
a few I like
BCBG is fun
it sounds like you picked out some great tops, love the leopard print scarf. scarfs can really make a statement.
can't help I am a very backdated as my friends say. In my whole life I have used less than 2 dozens of dresses.
How about a denim shirt on top, and opaque tights/knee high boots?
I do have two pairs of boots. One is a basic black knee boot and the other is (what I consider to be stylish) brown boot that is high-calf range height.
I do n't wear skirts or dresses as often as I wear jeans or trousers so when I do wear skirts in winter I usually wear them with boots and opaque or patterned tights in dark colours.
A cream colored blouse or sweater with a darker color long cardigan if needed over would probably go with both styles of skirt you describe.
Try not to worry too much about it, we can spend energy and time on such things. But I am not sure I even notice what other people are wearing unless it is amazingly fantastic or particularly awful and the sort of things most of us wear are in neither category.
p.s. Sorry if cardigan is an 'English' only word, not sure of another name for it in other countries.
You can pair the skirts with nice tops. I would recommend ones with some ruffles in the front to keep the attention in your face, and add a very feminine touch. Also add a pop of color to the outfit by completing the look with a cardigan. Your gray skirt will look great with an array of colors, blue, pink, black, etc. Try a pump to elongate the legs and help you maintain great posture. Hope it helps!
ok ladies listen up this is you gay best friend her chck my blog for simple fashion advise (and more) moeblog! no for something to wear on any occasion a simple black dress will do if you wanna punch it up add some trendy shoes to it. Zebra print or red pumps. You can even add a cute purse. BUT REMEMBER NEVER ADD TO MUCH "PUNCH" SIMPLE IS THE NEW BLACK WITHA NICE SMALL AMOUNT ADDED YOU HIGHLIGHT YOUR FIGURE
2uesday - Cardigan is certainly a word we use here as well Thanks for your info. I don't own any tights, but I saw someone wearing some not long ago and it intrigued me.
Classy Chick - thanks so much! A friend, who is very fashion-conscious (but was out of town when I asked this question) said something similar to me; to look at what the celebs are wearing, and also the top 10 of the year and just pick out things I like.
Lisi - that does help. I ended up with a white tailored blouse, the dk. olive skirt, and even a semi-sheer, silk leopard print scarf.
Lol I don't know what I looked like, but I sure had a good time!
Never-ending thanks for all of your help!
You're best bet is to go to the supermarket or bookstore, look through a bunch of fashion magazines for something that is similar to the skirts you refer to. See what tops and shoes they put with them. It's really difficult to tell you what to wear not knowing the fabric or shape of skirts, your figure type, your style, etc. You can also visit catalogs online. Boston Proper, Alloy, Coldwater Creek, Delia's, Black & White, Victoria's Secret, to name a few. Search keyword "ladies fashion catalog"
How about when wearing dark items of clothing, use bright, colourful or interesting jewellery to liven in up?
Pink is a color that looks good on everyone and you can weir it with you gray skirt and your brown skirt. I also like teal with brown. I don't know you coloring, but teal looks good on many women. The olive skirt, this might sound odd, but try it - leopard print. You can also wear it with the brown skirt. Red would look fabulous with the gray and the olive. Lavendar and purple can also be worn with the gray skirt. IF you are comfortable in yellow try yellow witth gray. If you are unsure, try a whit e blouse and a yellow handbag, necklace or shoes. Is there some one famous ( or even a friend) who's style you admire? Look at what they wear and see if any of that will work for you. Have fun with fashion and don't worry about what other people think. Try different combinations. When you fidn one you like take a picture or write it down so you don't forget. I hope this is helpful to you.

I'm thinking that I like the cut skirt with the little white strings over the hemmed version. How do you girls feel about it? And what is the best top to wear with a Jean mini skirt
