Like the show or not, who doesn’t want to have a little bit of Carrie Bradshaw’s style in their life? We can all have her best, most fashionable accessory– confidence. Be bold with me and wear what you like to wear without being self conscious about it. (Obviously some exclusion apply, please don’t wear leggings as pants or black undergarments under sheer white clothing– this is not style) Who says you can’t wear whimsy? If you are confident enough, you can wear almost anything you want to. The only thing that will make a bold outfit seem out of place is your insecurity.
And if all else fails, just put a jean jacket with it, right?
This skirt did it for me. These bell skirts are the perfect feminine addition to any girl’s closet. When first trying it on two of my lovely Pensacola friends had to talk me into it. (Thanks Anna and Jess!) Sometimes your friends say things that will stick in your mind forever, and this was one of those moments. I was questioning my ability to pull it off and wear it to work, and Anna said, “Why can’t you be the one in your office that can pull anything off?” I can be that person. It is almost all about confidence. (And sometimes your budget…)
So I present to you 8 ways to wear the bell skirt. (My favorite still being the Oklahoma Kitty t-shirt) The easiest way to wear it is with a tank and a jean jacket, but as I’ve learned from the J. Crew catalogue, a great way to dress down an otherwise fancy skirt– tie a t-shirt at the top of it.
Also, if you are like me and have more dresses than t-shirts, tuck a dress into your skirt! Don’t be afraid to do something unconventional. Make your closet work for you!
Another way to add more detail to to your outfit is to add a scarf. It can help tie your whole outfit together, especially if the tops you have are very plain. (Also, who doesn’t need more polka dots in their life?)
