Style: ruffle wrap skirts starting at $8!

Style: ruffle wrap skirts | see all the picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

A fun twist on the traditional skirt for the spring and summer season is the wrap skirt paired with a ruffle detail. Highlight the skirt details by keeping the top detail-free (think lightweight tank or camisole, or a solid color tee). Alternatively, make an eye-catching look by pairing the skirt with an equally detailed top. The options are endless and will always yield something amazing. I’ve rounded some of my favorites below!

Beige ruffle wrap skirt

Floral print ruffle wrap skirt

Navy blue ruffle wrap mini skirt {only $8}

Blue striped ruffle wrap skirt

Olive green ruffle wrap skirt

Style: hoop purses | see all the picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

Theory introduced a new handbag line last fall and the Whitney bag has become quite popular. What’s not to like about a bag that can hold all the essentials and can be worn as either a crossbody or a clutch that dangles off your wrist with its simplistic hoop detail? There have been quite a number of inspired designs as a result of this. I’ve rounded up some great options for you below!

Black hoop handle purse {comes in pink, too!}

Tan leather hoop pouch {4 colors}

Faux-suede ring bag

Red ring convertible crossbody bag

Black embossed ring bag

Brown hoop purse {11 color/styles!}

To me, one of the best things about fashion is mixing and matching, repurposing, and creating completely different looks with just a few switches. Case in point: this olive piece is actually a dress that I worn as a coat. I love the varying heights that it creates over the stripe dress. Bonus: it gives me a chance to extend the wear of my shirt dress into to the cooler weather.

Green tie-waist dress (worn as a coat) (similar style here {under $30} & here)

Stripe shirt dress – WhoWhatWear x Target (similar style here {under $27 with code MAINEVENT16} & here)

Midi skirts can be intimidating to style due to their fullness and length. That’s what I used to think but it was before I played around with some key things that have now changed my mind. Whether you’re 4’10” or 5’10”, it’s all about balance. A few things I always try to adhere to are:
(1) pair the skirt with a neutral or a color that’s found on the skirt
(2) don’t let the skirt swallow you – define the waist by tucking in your top or pairing it with a crop top
(3) if the skirt is patterned, choose a neutral shoe to pair it with as to not compete
I love this look for work – it’s a good way to wear a more playful skirt but still look professional.
