The Ultimate Black Skirt

With all this skirt angst hovering about,
I finally found what might be the perfect black skirt for summer! 


Weston Wear Ruched Skirt

Oh, I know it doesn’t look like much on a hanger,
but the great thing about this pencil skirt 
 ***besides the color, length, stretch, and the sweet ruching up the sides***
is, that because of its narrow silhouette, 
it can be worn with billowy tops just like skinny jeans,
and still keep the proportion right.

I’ve already shared the outfit that we put together at Hop Sing Trading Company for my art opening last week…


but then I just started playing in my closet…




…and realized the
and ease
that makes me want to keep wearing this (and other choice skirts)
 even more than once a week, as committed.

  2. Not very often do I wear short tops…but it does happen…and when better than with a skirt? I would LOVE to shop with you, but the truth is, I probably get at least 30% of my pieces online!

  3. Looks great on you. I agree we have to be careful about judging clothing on the hanger.

  4. Great lesson for us all about not judging a skirt by its hanger! Love these looks – thanks for sharing with VisibleMonday.

  5. This is very inspiring – it looks good with everything!

  6. A great skirt you got there! Love the different looks! Cute cute cute!

  7. Besides the color, length, and all the ways you brilliantly wore this skirt, I want to take it right off your hanger. Great job!

  8. This skirt is clearly a wardrobe staple. I love how you’ve styled it so many different ways. You have a great eye for seeing how this thing can go from a little nothing on a hanger to WOW.

  9. I’m definitely sold on this idea! A narrow skirt is a perfect alternative to skinny pants. I’ll be trying this!

  10. A new follower! LOVE the way you are wearing this skirt with the longer tops/dresses! Great looks!

  11. What a completely original, completely perfect styling lesson!
    Of course it goes with everything.
    You look adorable in each photo. You should be well pleased with yourself, smarty pants … no, smarty skirt!
