When Chandra asked us to participate in this styling event, I had lots of ideas running through my mind. What article of clothing could I choose to style in three different ways? I thought about a dress, a scarf or a jacket, but i eventually settled on the basic jean skirt. Why? Because almost everyone has a jean skirt in their wardrobe!
I am going to show three varying degrees of casualness with the jean skirt. Casual, semi-casual, and a more dressed up look.
1. Casual – This look is with a t-shirt and flats. It is the most basic of outfits and anyone can recreate it. It is good for weekend wear or even casual day at the office.
2. Semi-Casual – This one is a little more fun. You still have the basic jean skirt, t-shirt and flats, but I have dressed it up a bit with a shiny pair of flats, a blingy bag and a scarf. Again, this outfit would be good for weekend wear, casual day at the office, parent/teacher meetings, etc.
3. Dressy-Casual – This outfit is more dressy. I have added a button down collard shirt, cardigan and belt over the basic jean skirt.
So as you can see, it is easy to dress up or dress down your jean skirt. I think that the jean skirt is one of the most versatile pieces of clothing that you can have in your wardrobe.
