The Pattern Skirt

I really like the look of a precious, patterned skirt toned down with a simple top. Bold prints almost always have a celebratory feel to them. It doesn't matter if they're mini or maxi, these skirts give any ensemble plenty of visual intrigue and have a cool vibe that's perfect for any season.
One of the great things about these bold skirts is that there are so many ways you can transition them into your wardrobe. If this is your first time wearing these eye-catching patterns, stick with a simple top and let the print take center stage.
Whether you live for color or prefer earth tones, there's a shape-themed print out there for you. Skirts are especially fun in this case because they provide a palette for an outfit built out of the colors used. Today I felt a little bit more daring, and incorporated some texture into this outfit - hence the fur vest. It's important to note that I kept everything else simple and understated in neutral tones so that the focal point of this outfit is the pattern skirt.
Though the patterns themselves may change over time, bold prints are ever-present in fashion. The greatest thing about these patterns is that it adds a touch of bold and edgy to your otherwise simple ensemble.

Side Note:
Sorry for the lack of mini-me today, the weather has been chilly in Boston so I didn't want Charlotte to catch a cold while posing outside.

  1. Nice layering! I miss autumn. Indonesia doesn't have fall season. Fortunately (or unfortunately?), it's almost always winter at my office, so I can still do layering, haha!

  23. Hey Thu! I agree girl! When wearing a bold skirt, let it be the focal point. Yours is great and I have a couple in my closet. Love the leather band around the waistline on yours. I like to pair mine with a leather jacket. Loving your fur! Hope you're having a great evening my bloggie buddy. ((HUG))

  24. Your hair looks gorgeous! The pattern on your skirt (and the door) are so bold and striking. I tend to shy away from patterns like that on skirts, but love the look on others. You styled it well with the fur vest.
