Well, 10 inches of snow is falling outside right now so we thought we’d daydream about what we’d wear if it were spring!

The Black and White Striped Skirt Styled 4 Ways!

skirt

This black and white striped skirt is my best fashion weapon, kitties! While I’ve only worn it on the blog twice, it’s definitely one of my go-tos, especially on days when nothing is working. This skirt always works because it has endless possibilities! I thought it would be fun to do a little tribute to it and show 4 different ways you can style this darling. The skirt shown is from Modcloth.

1. Color Pop

This is the easiest one because it adds a beautiful contrast against the stark black and white. I love the button down with skirt, and adding little oxfords is so preppy and adorable!

2. Pattern Mixing
This option is the one I probably do the most. Plaids, cats, polka dots: have fun! This pretty fuchsia top is hitting all the right notes for me, and I love the edgy feel of it paired with the boots.

3. Casual Chic
A cute white graphic tee with red heels is a lovely match! Add a statement necklace and you’re all set.
Joie Rancher J Tee :: Shopbop (they have a million cute white graphic tees, seriously!)

4. Stripe on Stripe

To make this work, I’d go either smaller stripes like this one, or introduce some color. Add a fun floral heel for a break from the Stripey-Stripe Club!
Striped Crop Top :: Forever 21
Waltz Floral Print Pumps :: Ruche

Here I am mixing mine up for a holiday party with sequins and another one with a ruffled plaid:
