I’ve never met a full skirt I didn’t like. It’s one of those clothing items — and I think everyone has at least one — that makes me feel like the most feminine, confident version of myself.
I tend to stick to a fairly standard color palette when it comes to wearing clothes that make me comfortable. My closet is filled with lots of black, dark blue, brown, tan and white pieces. Despite what others might say about “getting out of the box,” every once in a while, I believe that it’s perfectly fine to like what you like.
And, I’m here to tell you … I liked THIS SKIRT! I’ve never been particularly crazy about color, but THIS SKIRT became one of my wardrobe exceptions for a number of reasons.
The hot pink hue is a complete head turner all by itself. But, when you add in the structure around the waist (it makes me look snatched without having to wear a shaper), the pockets (I’m always searching for somewhere to anchor my overly expressive hands) and the length (it’s so versatile and works in practically any situation I’d ever find myself in), it was a complete no brainer. I knew THIS SKIRT would be one of those mainstay pieces that I could wear again and again without having to worry that it would look dated and worn out.
I didn’t want to wear anything that would compete with the skirt’s sauciness, so I paired it with a plain white button down. I think the gathering detail on the oversized sleeves also helped amplify the ultra feminine feel I wanted to create with this outfit.
I felt so strong and sure of myself when I was wearing this outfit. I truly believe when you’re confident — not cocky — it shines through.
I’d love to know what pieces in your wardrobe make you feel the most confident. Tell me all about it in the comments below and what you might wear with it to level up your look.
