Inspiration - J.Crew
I feel like you guys have seen a lot of this skirt after all the suitcase posts. But it called my name this morning and so I am wearing it again! Because I have a pretty curvy figure - I'm very careful about introducing pattern on my bottom half (I keep trying on patterned crop pants and they look so terrible I basically laugh myself out of the dressing room) but I think I can handle pattern in this skirt because of the simple shape and subdued colors.
And I have to say that Audrey from Putting Me Together is totally right in her post (great clothes diagram here) that introducing patterned/colored bottoms give you so many more outfit options when paired with the same number of tops compared to black pants or jeans.
