Building a Stylish Wardrobe – The Statement Skirt

3 June 2013

I’ve talked about this before, when I wrote 3 Ways to Wear a Sequin Skirt.

And I still believe that buying a statement skirt is one of the best ways to building a stylish wardrobe.

Building a Stylish Wardrobe – The Statement Skirt

When it comes to buying your basics and wardrobe staples, do pay more and choose a higher quality where you can afford it.

But when it comes to buying a statement skirt… buy more items, for less.

You’ll be able to stretch your wardrobe further that way and still come out looking stylish and on trend.

Here are some tips: Buy from high street fashion stores. Choose something affordable and on trend. Buy a skirt that is bright and bold. Pay around $50 – $100 for it. Or look for something quirky or unique in a bargain bin. Or an op shop. Find a statement print, an unusual colour, or a lovely material.

OK so you probably have lots of the basics – neutral coloured tops, a black blazer, a stripe top, a white button down shirt, a denim shirt, a grey coat, a black cardigan, a navy blouse, a cream silk top.

Here are some ideas on how to put them together (with the skirts pictured above) to create a stylish outfit.
