    What do you wear with yours?
    If you don't know the ones I mean, I'm talking about these: http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/st...9729&langId=-1
    (I know they're everywhere now, not just Topshop- but they're the originals and the ones I have are Topshop colours).
    I have two- the turquoise one and the lilac one and I need some new ideas on how to wear them. I only wear them on nights out (and I only want to really) and always with a black top and a black and gold belt. Does anyone have some suggestions?
    Thanks girls!

    For a top I would just say a plain/slighty patterned vest or t-shirt - maybe black or something, as yours are so bright? And pumps or heels and some kind of necklace.

    I'd wear it a la Vivian in Pretty Woman - oversized white shirt tucked into it so that it billows/puffs over slightly.

    oh goddd i hate those skirts! EVERYONE has them.
    i dunno... if i had to wear one i'd probably wear an oversized v-neck t-shirt tucked into it so it hangs over the skirt a bit.

    The Léger rip-offs? Most people wear them with vests tucked in. They're good with voluminous/baggy tops to balance out proportions.

    Thanks for the suggestions so far guys, I've thought about trying it with white- but then my only comfy heels are black so I'm not sure how I'd tie that together. Ooh and I like the idea of an oversized- will definitely try that.
    Aaaand, yes I know they're not "original" but to be honest, I don't care, I think they look good on me and when you only shop at places like Topshop, New Look, ASOS etc its obvious people are going to have the same. Plus to be honest, I've never been the kind of girl who is "mortified" because she's wearing the same dress/skirt/top as another girl in a club!

    I've got this in black...however I'd advise anyone reading don't be cheated by buying them at Topshop. I got mine exactly the same at H&M for 12.49! I also want to know what to wear it with. I've seen one person wear it with a crop top- it looked good.

    Does anyone think you can wear these with crop tops?

    I got mine from H&M because I'm cheap like that :p:

    I wear mine with leggings and heels/pumps, tight fitting vest top (either tucked in or not) and a nice jacket of the same colour of the skirt

    I've found they're a bit bigger than the normal sizes, I've bought quite a lot from them before.

    Yep, mine have always been accurate, so you shouldn't have a problem.

    I wear my turquoise one with a purple vest top tucked in and a black belt. I've got a cream blouse I'll try with it.

    I've got a black one from Primark and I've worn it with a blouse tucked in.

    I bought a black Topshop one the other today, it goes with everything :love: looks good with an oversized shirt/top tucked in though. I'll be wearing it with scarf, blazer and black tights when it gets colder too.
