Every new season brings along new opportunities to reimagine, reinvent and revamp your wardrobe, especially if you are on a budget. It’s time to start with some very basic steps and using your favorite day-to-day pieces. So get ready to see your favorite skirt do double duty, as right now is about to offer you a new lesson in layering. Well, you might think of layering as a thing that happens with sweaters and coats, let me tell you that skirts on skirts, skirts over pants, or skirts on dresses can be experienced for spring and summer.
First of all just as easily, the skirts can be made to look equally amazing when layered on top of chic dresses, for statements that can span in between day and night. When building that layering look, choose pieces in complementary colors for more of a cohesive outfit; Opt for a skirt that is slightly sturdier than the dress which means to think leather, suede, denim etc.; Go for high slits at the front, or on the sides, in order to ensure the look doesn’t come off as too stiff; movement is key when talking successful layering. For instance, as a layering game, know that denim is once again on the spot this season if not convinced, then discover why you should own one denim piece. Denim is cool as it gives that not-trying-so-hard way style and still has the versatile frock that instantly makes an outfit feel that much more forward and special! Moreover, denim skirt has made a comeback but with the wrong styling, it can easy look frumpy or outdated. To make it look modern while wearing it over any dress or t-shirt dress, keep accessories simple, without too many frills or bright colors. Stick with a neutral color palette to let the denim stand out either it’s a blue denim or black one.
You can therefore, play with length– For example, don’t be afraid to layer a short denim skirt over a long ruffle dress. It’s a modern mix of ’70s-inspired pieces. Be just careful not to layer two silhouettes that are equally tight and rigid, for the looks will come off all stiff and uncomfortable. You can either make a monochrome look by matching your white dress to black leather skirt, or you can add peplum skirt over your favorite little black dress for a chic glamour touch. All in all, keep in mind that those tips above are the few things to consider when trying to perfect the skirt layering technique over a dress. Last but not least, take this style experience as if you were sitting somewhere outside the comfort zone and allow yourself to update your look drastically this season.
