Do you have a piece of clothing that just feels like home? So comfortable that you almost want to wear it all the time? I do. It's a gray maxi skirt that is made out of a soft knit fabric. The best part about it? I made it myself from a dress that only cost me $3. Oh yes. This was definately my most successful refashion ever, and all I did was cut off the top of the dress and add an elastic waistband. Super easy. Anyway, I wanted to give you 3 ideas of how to wear a skirt like this.
Look #1: Pair it with a dressier top, wide belt, and heels for a dressier look. Even a knit skirt can look fancier depending on what you wear it with. Accessorize as desired. This is the shirt I made in my last post.
Look #2: Wear the skirt as a dress! You'll need a belt, unless you want to look shapeless. ;) I wore sandals to keep this look summery, but you could add a cardigan and flats for a cooler day.
Look #3: This popular pin on Pinterest was my inspiration for this look. I wore the skirt with a white tank top, a wide belt, flip flops and my dad's denim shirt. I also added my peacock feather necklace just cuz I love it. How do you think this outfit compares to the original?
This skirt is definately one of my go-to pieces, both when I'm dressing to go out or just spending the day at home.
What's your favorite go-to piece of clothing?
