Styling A Sunray Pleated Skirt, a fringed jacket and a groovy hat for Stylish Dressing!! πŸ€”πŸ™€πŸ˜‰

Flattering or Fattering?

Being petite and not exactly skinny, I have steered clear of this sunray pleated skirt trend.

I felt that it wouldn’t be very flattering, but would tend to make me look short and dumpy.

When we went on our road trip through Victoria and visited my Instagram buddy, Eva, who has a fabulous shop in Melbourne, I was convinced to buy this gorgeous silver skirt…

Silver Sunray and Basic Black!!

I don’t wear a lot of black but I felt comfortable putting this skirt back with black.

It’s been worn with the top over the outside of the skirt and also with a black bodysuit tucked into the waist band.

The snakeskin shoes were a good choice during the early autumn but it would be fine with tights and booties as we move into winter.

What I do like about this skirt is the movement that it possesses, giving a feminine and pretty look.

Making It Fun!

Even though we move towards winter, it’s still very sunny and so a hat is always useful.

This Zorro! hat is just gorgeous and I loved the vibe it gave with the original eighties, fringed suede jacket.

I’m not really sure that I prefer the top over the top of the waistband but really both options look fine!!

Thank you so much for visiting my little corner of the web, and I’d love to hear your thoughts on such skirts as we deal with the big issues here!!

    Skirt and shirt combine is good. Also shoes.
    For me tight color must be skin but not opaq.
    Have a nice weekend.

      Yes I agree that skin coloured tights would be best as I think the opaque tights would be too heavy.. thank you for your kind comment!! Donna πŸ§šπŸ»β€β™€οΈβ€οΈπŸ™
