Stripes are a great simple pattern that goes with a lot of things. I've picked black and white because I feel combining the two with another colour makes a good colour palette for an outfit. Since the outfit is pretty neutral on the whole I decided to go with some beige sandals to stick with that neutralness.
Lace is a feminine fabric some it's perfect for when you want to get dolled up. As you can see, I am a true lover of the black, white and <insert third colour> combo so here it is again!
Who said lace can only be feminine? This outfit isn't really me but I probably would have worn it a few years ago back in my jrock days. Ahhh teenage years! I've toughened the lace by making every other piece black. Black tee with skulls plus black boots plus black shades and you'll look like a rockstar ha! I decided to add in a peach hippie back so there's something to balance the skirt since my hair is black too.
As I said before, lace is feminine. With the skirt being a light colour I decided to create an airy fairy romantic look. Everything in this outfit is light in colour however the shades are different to give it some sort of dimension. Too much of one colour can look weird if the shades are too similar in my opinion.
Skirts can look casual as long as you make it casual. Here I'm wearing Vans; if I wore heels the look would be completely different. Shoes can make a big difference to an outfit! I've paired the skirt with navy items because I feel peach and navy together are a pretty good match. Matching your shoe colour with your top is a good way of balancing an outfit.
