1. Simple and Glam
For this look I wanted simple and refined. Every piece in this is saying something, but also working cohesively for a clean, effortless look. The skirt is the statement, but studs at the collar and cuffs of the shirt pull interest and really bring the clutch and earrings together, and the light pink offsets the bright green nicely. The earrings are a statement as well, but not overwhelmingly so. They work to frame the face wonderfully. The shoes are simply Old Hollywood glam and they make me feel like a movie star every time I put them on. I kept the makeup relatively simple, sheer colors, with a little extra on the lips.
2. Girly, but Bold
This look is sweet and playful. The blouse is sheer, floaty, and has a great bold floral which counteracts the skirt. The looser silhouette keeps it demure, but not stuffy. I only tucked in the front of the shirt and left the back out, which just adds more movement to the outfit. I chose bright coral patent pumps that I've had for years to keep it fun and a little punchy. The bag adds some much needed grit, with zippers, hardware, and denim piping. This keeps the outfit from being generically prissy. The necklace (that is hidden by my super lustrous locks and my coy shoulder) is another little piece of toughness, as a bulky chain covered in strips of burlap with some rhinestones and chains thrown in. The makeup is the same as the first look: bright, clean, glossy.

4. Easy Breezy
Since this skirt is very easy to dress up, and that's what most people would probably try to do, I wanted a couple of casual options. This can be a skirt that you toss on with the right pieces and just wear to class if you want to! Instead of going with a flashy little top and heels, try a rough button-down with a long sweater vest or cardigan. Just add in some high top Chuck Taylors, minimal jewelry and you're all set to go. For this outfit I wore very minimal makeup, nude lips, and a little shimmer on the eyes.
5. Refined Cozy
I love the idea of using this skirt as a statement transition wardrobe piece as fall, and then winter arrive. With this thought in mind I went right for my tribal print chunky sweater. the colors are so perfect, and in the same family as the skirt, so despite the clash in aesthetic, the colors keep it harmonious. With such a chunky top, I wanted to keep the rest of the outfit streamlined, which is why I chose my nude pumps. I also added some statement earrings to frame the face.
All right peeps, I hope this gives you some newfound confidence to tackle an atypical wardrobe item! Hopefully, some bright green fringed skirts! Either that or I'll be the lone wolf...
