Reader Request: How to Style a Full Skirt

How to style a full skirt

Reader Marina sent me this question in an e-mail:

I’ve noticed recently how many lovely, full-skirts you rock (whether as parts of dresses or actual skirts), and I’m wondering if you might consider one of your reader request posts for similar outfits. Particularly for long-torso’d people. I’m thinking how to match full-skirts with tops that aren’t just blouses or button ups, and/or full-skirted tall dresses.

When I first started wearing skirts, pencils and A-lines dominated. My first full skirt was an orange pleated one from Banana Republic that still gets loads of wear to this day, and I remember wondering how on earth to style it when it first came into my possession. Now full skirts are my go-to style, and I’m delighted to share my tips for making them work. read more

Skirt, Anthropologie Field Skirt (no longer available at Anthro) – a few on eBay
Belt, Tom Thomas Leather
Flats, John Fleuvog Amina (no longer available) – a pair on eBay
Hoops, The Mexican Shopsimilar

Sunday was spent with the in-laws so I stepped up my game a little. Still needed to do flats – I really did a number on my right quad – but opted for these slightly dressier Fluevogs.
