3 Ways to Wear… a patterned pencil skirt #capsulewardrobe #unfancyfriday

Just for fun on a Friday…
Part of creating a capsule wardrobe is finding lots of ways to wear the same items. I’ve had this leopard-print skirt for a couple of years and I always get compliments on it when I wear it, but I am always unsure about how to style it. I’ve been playing around with it on Polyvore and I think I’ve found a couple of very doable options, as well as a crazy one I might try if I have the right occasion.

The first option is my standard look — when in doubt, pair a print with black.  Good basic office look, with ankle boots to make it a little more current.




Next up, something slightly more daring — mixing print with a bright color. Basically this is treating the print like a neutral, which I hear is what you’re supposed to do? #fashionclueless

Not so casual Friday


And finally — in true SEC football style, we’ve got the “football fancy” look that those Southern girls have down pat and we Missourians are just learning about. Honestly, the shirt probably needs some sequins or something.

Have a great weekend!

  1. Fun. I’m all about blingy team shirts!!!
    Do you know I don’t have a single pencil skirt?! I always feel hippier than normal in them because my hips are a bit wide.

  2. Ohhh I need a leopard print something. Now that I don’t work in an office, I was thinking of a clutch. I do have a pair of leopard round toe flats but I’d like pointed toe ones instead. Or maybe a scarf? I would wear the skirt with a tee shirt. I have one from Ann Taylor Loft that is white and says dream in black. And love those last pair of booties.

  3. LOVE that skirt and also the shoes! I love that you can dress up/down pencil skirts. I have a few and I think that’s my favorite style! Do you ever read The Mom Edit? Her style reminds me of yours a bit.

    • Your post-baby belly must be in better shape than mine! I love my booties — I’ve had them for a couple years but only been brave enough to wear them with skirts this fall.
