If you’ve ever looked into your closet only to bemoan that you have “nothing to wear”, you’re not alone. We’ve all felt the pressure of having to constantly find and buy clothes to update our wardrobe every season so that we don’t end up wearing the same thing every day. I mean, I’m a busy woman! I don’t have time to be coordinating outfits and shopping 24/7!

An easy solution to this dilemma would be to get a mix of basics and statement pieces so you can mix and match. When paired well, you’ll be able to string together multiple outfits that will never go out of style! In this post, we picked this chic brown skirt from Style Theory and styled it in 3 different ways to show you how you can experiment with your own wardrobe and make more bang for your buck!

Preppy Chic

Look smart and sharp in this outfit! Pair the skirt with a turtleneck to give it a classy polished look. A chequered blazer always helps to give the look more to structure and a preppy appeal.

Fun Casual

This is a fun, comfortable look perfect for casual Fridays. Feeling too warm? You can take off the denim jacket and tie it around your waist to transform your outfit into something more streetwear. Pair it with some fun earrings for a young, fresh burst of colour!

Another trick to giving your outfit a classy makeover is to style it within the same colour hues. Match this brown skirt with a long-sleeved top and bag from the same colour palette to get a colour-coordinated monochrome look that looks effortlessly cool. Top it off with cute shades for a strong boss vibe.
