3 ways to wear a patterned skirt

I featured a white shirt worn 3 different ways last month , and afterwards asked for suggestions on my next 1 item, 3 ways post.  Molly requested a patterned skirt to be featured.  What a great idea!  

I love wearing skirts with fun patterns. In fact, it just so happens that I have already worn one specific skirt, 3 different ways on my blog.  

I bought this skirt from Gap Outlet a few years ago, and can't seem to get enough of it.  It's so cozy, and can be dressed up or down.




I wore this outfit for a date night, and paired this skirt with booties and a chambray shirt in this post. (where I talked about some fun middle school fashions that are coming back)  



I wore this outfit to run errands one morning, and wore this skirt with a white tee, a simple necklace, and some neutral flats.  I featured this outfit in this post where I shared some really fun links (including how much JK Rowling makes a second!!!  Insane!)



Yes, this is a super creepy, hotel mirror selfie.  I wore this outfit to a blog conference, and paired it with a plain tee, a blazer, the same elephant necklace as pictured above, and some neutral flats.  I featured this outfit in this post where I gave advice for attending blog conferences.


A skirt with a funky pattern is actually really fun to style...and can be styled in so many ways!

For options of cute patterned skirts see here, here, and here.

Do you have a patterned skirt you love?  Or are wanting to try?

The only pattern skirts I have are 'striped' so I'm not sure that's really a pattern. ;)

That was one good buy :) And it's insane how much JK Rowling makes, but I think I also read somewhere that she donates so much money to charity, that she's no longer a billionaire or something of that nature... Crazy respect for that woman!

Amy Shaughnessy said...

These are all great! I think the 1st way is my favorite. You look so cute!

Great pattern on your skirt. I always have a hard time dressing up a maxi skirt for work. Great pairing with the blazer.
