Wear it 3 Ways: Polished, Pink Skirt

Pocketbook-friendly shopping advice from yours truly: If you can't style it three ways, DO NOT buy it. Yes, even if it's on sale and just your size. Ever look into your closet and think....

Most of us only use a fraction of our wardrobe, adopting a sort of "uniform," and neglecting other pieces, because....

1. We don't know how to style what we have.
2. We don't know what fits.
3. Our wardrobe is too cluttered.
4. We don't have enough staples to mix in with trend pieces.
5. We are afraid to step out of our comfort zone.

"Wear it 3 Ways" is my answer to the aforementioned shopping dilemma. Here, I'll pick one piece and show you three distinct ways to style it. More wardrobe tips to come, loves.

This Week's Key Item: Tibi Simona Jacquard Full Skirt, $395

Grab a mimosa and get ready for a day date! This look is perfect for a fashionable brunch in the city and any girly get-togethers you may have coming up. Don't be afraid of the matching separates trend: Adding in the matching Tibi top let the accessories pop against the sweet, pink background. I would wear this look with an Ariana Grande ponytail and a glossy, coral lip.

Night Out
This flared crop top will show just enough mid-section to make your prim, pink skirt sizzle. Pair it with a tough-but-girly collar and some killer heels for a night at your favorite fried chicken and champagne place or an Uptown soiree. Sleek and straight hair a la Jennifer Aniston completes the look!

Keep your work day vibrant with a fun pattern and luxe detailing. Does anyone is your office look this cheery? No black, no ill-fitting pantsuit, and yet this ensemble is totally HR appropriate. If you're on your feet all day, opt for fashionable flats. Keep your makeup "Naked3" palette neutral with blush tones for a glowing look that won't crackle and fade as your day wears on.
