    My boyfriend bought me this skirt for my birthday:


    It's gorgeous but I have no idea what to wear with it, especially on top. Leggings, tights, heels, flats, vest top, cardigan, tshirt, what colour?
    Any ideas?
    You can't tell very much from the pic but it's a very full skirt meaning that it billows out quite a bit like a 50's skirt
    I'm going out tonight, any suggestions appreciated

    If you want to look summery/casual wear a plain top, if you want to look more classy wear a black top or a top that's the same colour as the roses. Heels or flats would look nice And a little cardi will make it look really cute too

    Now that it's winter, I'd wear it with black tights and pumps or black boots.

    A cardigan would look way cute with that or like hazelr said, a top in either black or the same colour as the pink. That skirt is BEAUTIFUL, I love the lace.

    black heels or boots, maybe black tights but would probably look better just bare legs, black tank top

    Black, white, pinks, aubegines, purples, creams, greys, maroon, greens. Sometimes something like that gets scary and you stick with pretty plain combos. It's fine, but to punch it up just try it on with everything you have in the wardrobe. Lots of it will be awful but you'll find some stuff that works suprisingly well, and will get you out of the just with black/white/pink mode.

    New Look basically the only place I ever shop!
    I don't know whether you'd be able to get it now though because it was on the way out when I got it
    If you really want it and can't find it, I might be willing to part with it, just message me

    Ps. Very jealous that you have an unconditional at Exeter!!

    Ooooh ja ja very nice. I have a similar shaped skirt but it's red with polka dots. I wore it out with simple pumps and a simple fitted white top (that looked a little like a corset) that wasn't too overbearing so the skirt stood out.
