“We were emerging from the period of war, of uniforms, of women-soldiers built like boxers. I drew women-flowers, soft shoulders, fine waists like liana and wide skirts like corolla.”
I have a love hate relationship with skirts. I want to love them but I hate styling them for the most part. You would think they would be as simple as a pair of pants. Somehow, it isn’t as basic as jeans and a cute top though! Despite the challenge I always face styling skirts, time and time again I find myself falling for skirts with unique cut or pattern like this one:
With this skirt I decided to keep it simple and just allow the asymmetrical cut and buttons take center stage. To do so, I turned to my tried and true favs- over the knee boots and a plain black turtleneck! The verdict? I still don’t feel like skirts are one hundred percent me. I do feel that I am closer to cracking “the code” to working such a classic item into my closet!
Regardless of how I feel about skirts, I do know that I LOVE these photos by Anni of Anni Powell Photography! If you are ever in the PNW you have to check her out for all your photography needs.
Question time: How do you feel about skirts? Do you struggle with them or are they a go to in your closet?
