This Spring season is all about color! From red to orange, pink and green, adding a fun pop to your outfits is where it’s at. We’ve made this wonderful transition over the past few seasons where we’ve gone from neutral colors and minimalistic styles to lots of color, fun prints, and clothing that just has something to say. As a proud member of the neutrals club, I’ve found myself embracing this whole new world of color! One color that I’m definitely obsessing over right now is yellow. Please tell me that I’m not the only one?! Everywhere I go, this beautiful color stands out to me, so I’ve decided that the best way to proceed was to give it a big warm welcome it into my life!
Instead of sharing just one way to style a wrap skirt, I wanted to change up the ol’ outfit post by doing a day to night look with the wrap skirt taking center stage. Wrap skirts are the perfect staple for your Spring wardrobe! I love the fun and flirty feel a they bring by showing just the right amount of leg, plus there’s that awesome twirling factor. But wait, there’s more (said in my infomercial voice)- in addition to making you feel pretty, they’re also incredibly flattering on all kinds of body shapes.
I’d never owned a wrap skirt or dress before, as I tend to gravitate towards more simple, structured pieces, but what’s exciting about staying in your comfort zone?! Wrap skirts make me think of warm spring afternoons drinking rosé and date nights listening to live music under twinkly lights (also with wine!).
For a Daytime Look, you can style a wrap skirt with a basic tee which keeps your look more casual and day-ish. Since my wrap skirt is a more vibrant color, I opted to style the rest of my daytime look in a neutral color. Something cool to consider when choosing a t-shirt, is that by adding one with embellishments, like the ribbon and pearls on mine, it works as a kind of accessory of its own by giving visual interest to your outfit without having to throw on jewelry. You know how I’m a fan of looking fabulous with minimal effort! You won’t have trouble getting your hands on one with how popular these tees are this season. Make sure you tuck it in to show off that beautiful waist of yours, too.
For that strong shoe game, go with something fun on your feet like a pair of metallic booties for your daytime look. I went with a blush tone bootie since they tie in perfectly with the yellow and will compliment all those beautiful spring colors. Not only are they the perfect shoe option for spring because they’re awesome, but they’re a great way to keep your tootsies warm if it’s one of those chilly or rainy Spring days.
For an Evening Look, the same color scheme works perfectly when you style a wrap skirt! Trade out your embellished tee for a a sheer, flowy top and an eye-catching statement accessory like a necklace or a pair of earrings. I admit to stealing this necklace from my friend Olia’s closet! It helps to have friends with fabulous closets, I must say!
Depending on where your skirt comes up on your waist, you can tie the front to show a little skin or opt for the classic tucked in top. I love throwing on a strappy heel for a night on the town! They always make me feel super sexy and tall. As a gal on the shorter side, I feel like I can never go wrong with them. A leather jacket is the perfect layer to have handy while you’re out in case that beautiful spring evening turns chilly. I know that I wear mine WAY too much, but it goes so well with everything that I just can’t help myself!
