How to Wear: Pencil Skirt

When I wear basic colors like white and black, I like to add a pop of color. I typically wear a lot of neutrals, so color is a way to make an outfit more exciting. For those like me that shy away from too much color, I tried to put together two combinations that added just enough pop of color.

For this look, I paired the grid patterned skirt with a classic white button (an essential in every wardrobe). I added a boyfriend cardigan in black and some studded bracelets. For a pop of color, I added the candy pink suede pumps. I am not a big pink person, but I think these are a fun color, and I like how pink pairs with white and black.

For this look, I kept it simple with a satin trim cami (another wardrobe essential and the ones from The Limited are great. If you have not tried them, I would highly recommend them!) and black pumps. I added a square necklace in gold, which mimics the grid pattern in the skirt. (Note: The Limited always has great necklaces, for reasonable prices.) For a pop of color, I added a tile blue cardigan, which could also be dressed down with jeans and flats.
