So, long skirts were in style at some point in the last 5 years and you somehow have, like, 12 taking up space in the back of your closet. You’re obvi more into the show-off-your-legs kinda skirts these days, but you can’t bear to part with them. You don’t have to – in fact, they could be the most versatile pieces in your entire wardrobe!
Did you know that your skirt is not just a skirt? That’s right, a long skirt doubles as a strapless top or even as a dress! Stop wasting money buying new things when you have plenty to work with already. And in a variety of ways!
A skirt that has an elastic waistband can easily be worn as a dress or top. If you think the silhouette looks a little too funky, add a belt at your waist to pull it together. Accessorize with long necklaces and a killer pair of shoes, and you’re ready to go.
Here are three outfit ideas:
A skirt that is longer than 30 inches in length is similar to a mini dress. That means you can wear it as a top with jeans or as a dress with tights or bare legs. Cinch the look with a belt to make the fact that it’s a skirt less noticeable.
For skirts that are shorter (25 inches), you can wear them as a top with jeans. Just remember: since skirts aren’t form fitting, make sure to pair them with a pair of skinnier jeans to prevent looking dowdy or worse, pregnant. Jazz up the look with a sparkly necklace!
You can also experiment with pulling skirts up a bit and pairing them with a tucked in basic tank and a funky belt for the shape and style of a mini/maxi dress.
Just block off some time, dive into that closet and start playing around! You will definitely discover looks with your old skirts that you never thought possible.
