Yes definitely give the a-skirt a try.
Greetje has applied many of the tips above. Her red dress is turned into a skirt by combining it with a short cropped cardigan, belted for even more emphasis on the waist.
Her second version is very pretty with that fabulous necklace stealing the show. A longer top can work well too when it sits tightly on your hip as is not too low. The belt further emphasises the waist. Here are some of my own options. I like the A-line black skirt and can create endless combinations with it. A shirt version is more flirty and girly while the longer version is more dressy and classic.
So long as they are short enough and there is still the suggestion of a waist, it will still look good. I love my white skirts as much as my black ones. This is my current favorite. This particular skirt looks best with the tops tucked in so you can highlight the belt and the unique top part of this skirt the belt is partly hidden at the sides.
For the below right look, I was actually inspired by the photos of the Guo Pei show , as one of the pictures highlights a big upstanding collar. The top below is the closest I could get to achieve that look. I also have a silk pink a-line skirt I like. If your skirt is wide enough you can actually wear it in many creative ways as I show here. Here is some more inspirations from my fashion inspiration colour pinboard.
I love the great color combinations and prints of these skirts. Kay Kerns also sent in this fabulous collage of how she would interpret the runway look for herself. I hope you are convinced by now that runways looks can be translated in such a way that they can work for you!
A full skirt is one of my favorite pieces. Pity you did not submit some of your favorite looks. You are the master of the a-line skirt! SO many great outfits! I really like that white skirt of yours with the tricky belt loops and short black sweater that Greetje used to transform a dress. This was fun, as always, and I look forward to the next dressing challenge.
You were so right to put that picture of Heather at the top. I like all of them, which is logical as this way of dressing suits my body so well. And all ladies who are showing their interpretations are very good stylists.
Alice has combined this blouse perfectly with that skirt. I had seen a different combination which I was not so fond of, but this looks great. The pattern of the skirt is so nice with the whirls of the blouse and very cute shoes. As for your outfits….. I also had a look at your pink skirt. I especially like the outfit with one knot 2 pictures. Just the right length top beautiful top , with that added colour of the belt. And you are right wearing your black and white ruffled blouse with that skirt.
By accident I had seen that blouse again when you did your post about Guo Pei and thought the same as you did. Referring to your last sentence, is not that a great example of how a fashion show can inspire your own outfits! Thanks again for participating. They all translate the look very well. And I agree with Greetje the first picture is gorgeous, like one of a magazine editorial. What a great look on you! I guess the trick is finding the right skirt for my body.
Great to hear it SE. Yes definitely give the a-skirt a try. They are so comfortable and when you style them well and one that suits you, the look great! All these outfits exude feminine style. Thank you for putting this post together. Thanks Tasi, I am very pleased with your comment. I am getting better in seeing possibilities. Well, what really set it off was the scarf and of course the patterned hose. Choose from a variety of prints, colors and fabrics to find your ideal one.
