Hi Garment Gardeners!
I can’t believe we’re already two weeks into August, which sadly means summer is ending. However, I am so excited because this means I move to New York City in only TEN DAYS!! I finally get to intern at a fashion company I have dreamed about working for, and get to live in a tiny apartment in midtown the size of my closet at home. Needless to say it’s going to be tough to decide which clothes have to be left at home.
Anyways, I am writing to share a garment perfect for those last summer days as well as a great transition piece for fall, the wrap skirt. I got this cute ruffle wrap skirt from Madewell, the perfect place to find minimalist staple pieces. This season there are many versions of wrap skirts and dresses to chose from; I’ll be linking some cute ones at the end of the article.
I love the versatility of the wrap skirt, especially in this pale blue color which allows for it to be paired with virtually any top, or as the weather changes, a sweater and booties. In this look I paired my wrap skirt with a plain white tee, thin gold necklace, and black and white stripe espadrilles. With this look I wanted it to be more laid back and casual which is why I chose a plain white tee. To dress this outfit up one could easily swap the espadrilles for a pair of chunky heels.
How will you style your wrap skirt?
