Style how-to: Printed skirts

Posted by imageandme in Personal style for women, Style For Women

Matching plain bottoms to printed tops is often easier than doing it the other way around. Printed skirts, especially with lovely bright floral prints, make quite a statement and for that reason many of us limit ourselves to matching them with plain simple styles of tops in white, black or a neutral for fear of not doing it right. However, we want you to enjoy bright patterns this summer. Here are some ideas on what to match your printed skirts with: Idea 1: Match them with striped tops. Always works. Idea 2: Match them with sweatshirts. Elegant and practical for cold, air conditioned indoors in Singapore. Idea 3: Match them with crop tops. They are cute and trendy. Idea 4: Match them with graphic t-shirts. Cool ! Idea 5: Match them with a denim shirt. Can’t go wrong. Some more tips to pick the right skirt: 1. Avoid patterns that are too big for your bodytype (unless you love the drama of loud patterns). 2. Watch out for gathers or open pleats at areas that you don’t attention on. Closely gathered waistband adds volume, which might not be what you want if your tummy is your area of concern. For more advice on which patterns, prints, colours and styles…
