5 Ways to Wear a Circle Skirt

by

The circle skirt is this season’s most versatile and flattering wardrobe staple. Named for their shape, which is cut like a big doughnut, circle skirts keep the fullness of the skirt at the hem rather than at the waist. The skirt, tight around your waist, flares out around your thighs, creating an hourglass shape on any body type. Sometimes called a skater skirt, this piece is comfortable and easily adaptable for every occasion and style.

Your entire summer wardrobe could be built around one of these striking skirts–like the Light Up My Life Skirt from Modcloth. A gorgeous black skirt is a great investment because you can wear it not only in the warm seasons but also in the fall and winter too! Here are 5 ways to wear a circle skirt:

Edgy

Who says a skirt has to be feminine? Show off your inner rebel with a form-fitting crop top with a tantalizing metallic zipper closure. A bold color will help you stand out from the crowd.

Bohemian

A tiered crop top in soft hues makes the perfect canvas for your most dangly necklaces. A peek of skin between the skirt and the top gives just a hint of carefree sexiness.

Mismatched Earrings

We’ve all suffered through that devastating moment when you come to find that an earring is missing after a long night out. Although we may never wear it again, we have the habit of keeping them stashed away in our jewelry boxes. Here’s an idea, try wearing mismatched earrings. You can DIY or buy a, not so identical, pair. Look no further than your own jewelry box, or this could be an excuse to shop and splurge. Many celebrities have been spotted sporting the unconventional look.

It always boils down to two routes, subtle and dramatic. When it comes to mismatched earrings you can elect either. If you’re weary of the trend, try a subtle look; pair two different studs together that make a cohesive look. If you’re feeling bold, pair a stud with a chandelier earring.

This trend is meant to be an attention grabber, so have fun with it. There really isn’t a way to miss the mark when it comes to mismatching. You can go to a department store, or rummage through your own pile of earrings and get creative. Mix and match however you please because the opportunities are endless.

The Statement Scarf

by

The cold weather has kicked itself up a notch this month and most definitely isn’t letting any of us forget it. Cue the oversized layers, gloves, and of course various hats to keep our ears from being bitten by the never-ending freeze. With all this going on, it can feel almost impossible to have time to show off our outfits (or even style for that matter) without feeling the nip of the cold.

Get ready to say goodbye to that fashion struggle! The statement scarf has proven to balance both style and warmth for this season.

Scarves are an easy accessory to pair with any look you are styled in. Not only do they come in a vast array of prints and colors, but you can tie them in various ways. The fun part is that you can never go wrong with it. A tip to stand out are bold scarves that come in plaid, animal print, and rich colors.

Below are some of our choice scarves for the bitter cold.
