1 Skirt, 3 ways.

Regardless of how out-of-date you feel your wardrobe is, you cannot rule out the fact that there are still timeless pieces in our closet. The Little Black Dress (LBD) is a prime example of an essential item in every woman’s wardrobe that can be worn to achieve multiple looks for either formal or informal events with minimal adjustments.

Color coordination is key; Learn to pick colors that complement one another, like a salient color in a skirt or blouse paired with a vibrant color.

Patterns and designs on both top and bottom should flow seamlessly and not distract from the outfit. It was once considered a fashion faux pas to wear stripe on stripe, but in recent years, it has become a trend majorly applicable to street style, which is a highly diverse form of fashion associated with youth culture seen mostly in major urban centers. In as much as this form of style has a care free attitude, it is a most distinct style always worn by chic women all over the world. However when in doubt, keep it safe; match versatile pieces such as a multi-color floral skirt with neutrals in black, white or brown.

This also gives the opportunity to become a trend setter rather than a follower of latest fashion finds. Take a cue from the famous words of Coco Chanel, Fashion fades, only style remains the same.
