Recently I did a One Skirt, Five Ways post with a Next polka dot skirt that I was enamoured with. You guys seemed to like the post so I thought I would give it another shot with a different skirt. Sound good? This time, I've chosen the Red Erin textured pencil skirt by Phase Eight via Debenhams to be the piece de resistance.
My initial thought for this red pencil skirt was to team it with leopard print. Of course! Lipstick red and leopard print go together like bread and butter! So, being a contrary creature by nature, I decided to do five looks not leaning back on old faithfuls. No leopard print here, my friends! (Although, if I WAS doing leopard print, I'd totally be teaming it with these gorgeous leopard pony hair flats by Dune and this awesome Sass and Bide leopard print clutch/bracelet. AWESOME.)
Ahem. Onto the looks!
NAVY & NEUTRAL
Oh man, I just properly love this outfit. I think this is total librarian chic in the cutest way possible. I am SO INTO YMC right now: they can do no wrong, in my humble opinion. And, on the same lines: neither can COS. Suddenly I'm a total COS girl - what's up with that?
I would never in a month of Sundays get the girls into this top. At any given time I'm between 20 and 30% breast, which utterly sucks. But if you're a proud member of the Itty Bitty Titty Committee (and you should be proud!) I urge you to get this ridiculously happy trashy crop top from Motel and I will be incredibly jealous. I think this outfit is so sexy in a devil may care kinda way. Hot!
I fully admit that this is an expensive outfit. It is seriously mega costly in the gazillions, etc. But: behold its wondrous hyper bright beauty! I love clashing orange or purple with red so clashing it with both is EVEN BETTER. I think that amazing Aminaka Wilmont shirt pulls all the other pieces together. Yum!
Totally wearable, right? I can 100% see myself rolling around in this getup. I love that Zoe Karssen sweatshirt and although I won't be able to justify £94 on a sweatshirt any time soon, it won't stop me envying those who can.
I love the red running through this, especially that little heart. I called this look Quietly Clashy because I thought the mix of stripes and tartan was quite subtle. And then I thought "Is it actually subtle?" Because, dear readers, I am not known to be the most subtle of creatures. I would happily wear this without batting an eyelid but maybe it's a bit more clashy than the quietly would suggest. Moderately Clashy? Very Clashy? Let me know!
Which is your favourite look out of the five? Let me know in the comments.
I'm torn between Hyper Bright and Navy & Neutral!
