Tough looking fabrics have a special place in my heart. Unfortunately, they are easiest to style during the colder months and lately, its been anything but cold. Keep reading to see more photos of this outfit and shopping ideas inspired by this look!
This skirt is probably one of my favorite purchases from Stradivarius. Its a faux leather skirt with laser cut details. The detailing breaks up the toughness of the skirt and gives it a little bit of a flirty feminine feel.
The best part about the skirt, at least, my favorite part… its got pockets!!! I can’t stress enough how excited and happy I get when I find dresses and skirts with pockets. Adding that little bit of function to form makes all the difference.
The top I paired with this skirt is a silk, polka dotted doleman sleeved button up. I found this blouse at TJMaxx and it sparked my love for silk and chiffon tops. Soon after I found my collection was growing! They’re light and comfortable for Spring and Summer,.. not to mention super cute.
To create a nice transition from the delicate top and the tough skirt, I accessorized with my beloved harness belt. It also helped with making the outfit feel complete.
I also liked the additional lines that the harness belt added to the back of the outfit. Here’s what I’m wearing:
- Pink Polka Dotted Doleman Sleeve Button Up Shirt (TJ Maxx)
- Leather Harness Belt (BCBG)
- Faux Leather Laser Cut Skirt (Stradivarius)
- Black Gold Zipper Ankle Booties (Mossimo)
- Oversized Dual Tone Watch (Michael Kors)
Lastly, I threw on a pair of plain black ankle boots to finish it off. I didn’t want to take away from the outfit so a simple pair of shoes felt right.
