Polyvore Q&A: Bodycon Skirt for the Ballet
Ah yes! The versatile black bodycon skirt. A skirt that can be used for a casual shopping day or even a night out at the ballet? Of course. An easy article of clothing and one that any female should own, here is how I advise on skipping the typifash look (typically fashionable = boring) and putting an outfit together that is worthy of compliments!
Here’s the collage I made for this Polyvore Q&A:
I could simply suggest to you that wearing a nice printed cami or tee tucked in your black skirt is all you need to do, but doing that would probably be an insult to you! Because everybody or most people know how to do that, because it’s easy, simple, and safe…so much that it’s not really considered really stylish anymore.
You have a plain black fitting skirt..the possibilities are endless. One of my style rules is to really balance your outfit’s silhouette. So in this case, since your bottom is simple, go with a top that is opposite of that..something with volume, something with a different texture, something with an unconventional shape for a top. If you have an extravagant top like in my first 2 pictures, you might not need jewelry, just a cute handbag.
if you have more simple things..like this off shoulder top Wear it with chunky statement jewelry
If you’re going for a more conservative look, you can try classic items with eye-catching colors trendy colors. For example, this blazer:
anyways im blabbing..but good luck!
