Wear to Work: Tuck a crisp, white button down shirt into the skirt and layer with a cardigan or blazer. Accessorize with a brightly colored necklace or bracelet. Bonus points if your cardigan is also in a bright hue! Pair with a black or grey heel.
Evening Out: Wear a sleeveless cowl-neck shell tucked into the skirt and a skinny belt worn about 1/2 inch below the top of the waistband. The skinny belt should either be a bright color or a shiny metallic. Add statement earrings, a couple sparkly bangle bracelets and a great pair of heels or wedges. For an extra dash of fun and whimsy, match your shoe color to your belt color.
Around Town: Pair with a cotton tee, preferably in a bright color like teal, and a denim jacket with the cuffs rolled up. Add a scarf and a pair of sunglasses and you will look effortlessly chic. If you aren't a fan of denim jackets, tuck in a chambray shirt with the sleeves cuffed for a similar look. Slip into your favorite sandals and throw a brightly colored bag over your shoulder for the finishing touches.
