Skirts are a constant in my wardrobe because they’re so easy to rework into different styles by simply changing up what I pair with them. One thing I’ve found to be a styling shortcut over the last few years has been a statement skirt. Working with a skirt with either a striking feature, an interesting print or a cut can add a certain freshness to a look. Also when paired with the right pieces you can take a skirt from day to night making it an unlikely hit in the versatility department, yet it still packs a sartorial punch. Here are a few ways to work a skirt that’s anything but neutral…
When it comes to statement skirts you really want to go all out sometimes and what’s better than a little lurex? I love the sparkly effect that this skirt has because it’s got so much energy and personality. Sometimes when you’re working with such a piece it means you can relax a little in what you pair with it because you definitely want it to steal the show.
Use it to anchor a look
One of my go-to pairings is a statement skirt with a sweater. Without fail, it always looks polished and chic. And the reason why is because the skirt is such a strong piece that it helps bring everything together. When matched with simple pieces such as a neutral jumper and a classic bag, you’ve got yourself a cohesive look that’s also anything but pedestrian.
Use it as an after dark look
Usually when I think of night events I’ll gravitate towards a dress or these days, a great suit. However don’t forget about a statement skirt! If you can find a beautiful skirt with a standout feature (the sheer effect of the skirt below is what made me gravitate to it) whether it’s an amazing print, next-level embellishment or a sublime colour then you’ve got yourself a piece that can definitely hold its own for an evening occasion.
