I loved this citron/lime full skirt when I bought it a few months ago but confess I have worn it exactly ONE time. I just can't figure out how to style it. It doesn't have the right kind of waist band to tuck into so I'm finding top options to be limited.
I decided to try an experiment and wear it today with a crisp white button down shirt tied at the waist. I like the idea of this combination, but I'm not entirely sure it works in practicality.
I've chosen my silver/bone sandals for footwear and my white clutch to keep the colour palette light with the strong green.
So here are my questions:
1. Does this work together?
2. Are the proportions correct?
3. Should the shirt be tied higher or lower?
4. Does it flatter?
As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.
Shirt: Jessica Petites (Sears)
Skirt: Cleo Petite
Clutch: Danier Leather
ETA: While emptying the dishwasher and making coffee after getting dressed I realized this shirt just was NOT working for me. It had high "fuss factor" and kept moving up and around. If I were at a desk without moving all day, maybe it would be fine, but I am often running up to the O.R. or the Labor Floor, or moving equipment and supplies. I can't constantly be pulling the shirt down.
So I made a very quick outfit change and would like your critique on outfit #2. I popped on my recently thrifted short sleeved animal print cardigan as a top, switched out my bone sandals to my Blondo bone and brown sandals, and switched my handbag from white clutch to vintage RL cognac handbag. When I look at the pictures, I think I like this version better because the cardigan has a bit more shape which shows my waist a little better.
I am still unsure that a full skirt is going to stay in my wardrobe. I feel like it really accentuates my wide hips and that's not an area I want to call attention to. I definitely prefer pencil skirts.
P.P.S. Feeling fat today :(
