striped pleated skater skirt with a pop of yellow and orange

 skirt: asos on sale now ; jacket: orsay; blouse: f21; clutch: asos  last seen here; heels: Zara (old): lipstick: covergirl 350eternal





 




Full pleated swing skirts look super flattering on women with curves, especially when they have wide hips. I was trying some maxi skirts on and just looked ridiculous, they are just not made for my figure.  For some reason that don't cont for maxi dresses, they hug my body pretty nicely :-)
So knowing what fits best to my feminine body shape, I tend to grab for skater dresses/skirts with cute pattern like this striped one. I paired it with my lovely ruffled blouse that I got from my by last christmas and ruffled heels for that playful finish. The leather looking jacket with its gold detailing gives it the perfect edgy vibe. I really like the black and white trend but only with a pop of colour so the orange and yellow was exactly the right amount!

PS: If you have been following me on GFC so far, they will shut down their business by July1st, so it would be great if you follow me on bloglovin instead. Thanks for your support, it means the world to me :-)

  4. Superschöne Kombi und Farben, Ani, gefällt mir ausgesprochen gut.
    Ich finde es gut, dass Du nach Deiner Figur und nicht nach Trends entscheidest! An mir sehen z.B. Hüfthosen unmöglich aus, da sie meine breiteste Stelle betonen statt meine Taille, die eigentlich recht schmal ist.

    Ich hoffe, Du hast Dir Deine Absätze nicht auf dem Kopfsteinpflaster ruiniert, ist ja immer gefährlich...

    Alles Liebe,

  6. I love this outfit! It looks super cute on you! I also love skater skirts! I always gravitate towards them, and have way too many in my closet! I definitely agree with you about maxi skirts, its really hard find ones that are flattering. It seems like they emphasize your hips more- weird right?

  21. I love this look! I love how you added the jacket for the edgy look, but as you take off the jacket it transitions into a soft look! This is the perfect outfit for a day out that can transition into a night out on the town look!! You look great!!!

  22. I agree that it is really important to find clothing that suits your body type even if this means that you won't be able to sport every trend that comes around. Also, this outfit is beautiful, I love the shape of your skirt and the ruffles on your blouse. I look forward to reading more of your work.

    Much love,
