5 Ways To Wear: Fluorescent Pink Scuba Skirt



I can't deny my love for this vibrant pink skirt, both the style and color is really popular this summer and I know for one that I have been wearing this one a lot! But, when wearing a skirt as bright as this, you've got to be careful with how you pair it with the rest of your outfit, making sure you don't have too much color or even distracting pieces around it, because it's definitely meant to be that bold piece in an outfit when worn!

---

Outfit #1 - For the first outfit, I went for my go-to top, a classic striped tee. I layered a black blazer over it to give it a simpler look and tone down the color, but I decided to have a bit of fun with my accessories, so I wore my giant pearl necklace and studded sandals. The pink skirt really added some feminine flair to this otherwise casual and menswear-inspired look.

Outfit #2 - The skirt is very modern, because although the fit-and-flare, high-waisted style of it can be seen as classic, that color definitely is not. For this outfit I wanted to pair pieces around it that would help the outfit give off more of a vintage vibe, so I paired it with my saddle oxford-inspired t-strap heels, layered pearls, and a straw bag + hat. 

Outfit #3 - Another cool way to style a skirt like this would be to wear it with a uniquely structured crop top! I got this one on Nasty Gal during a sale, and I was so right in thinking that it could totally add a unique touch to any outfit! With a colorful skirt like this, don't be afraid to pair it with a colorful top and just limit yourself to monochromes and neutrals, but when you do think of pairing it with a colorful top, something equally as vibrant may not be the way to go. 

Outfit #4 - This skirt is super trendy right now, so it's definitely not a bad idea to pair it with other trendy pieces! I went for a more urban look when pairing around the skirt with this outfit, choosing to wear some leopard smoking slippers, a graphic tee, and a denim jacket. For an extra bit of detail, I tied the shirt in the front rather than just tucking it in to give it a more modern and trendy touch.

Outfit #5 - I had a lot of fun with this outfit, and my inspiration for it was from the style on The Carrie Diaries! 80's-inspired with the thick belt, pantyhose, and the bright, almost-neon skirt! I love using today's pieces to pair up outfits that look like they've come from a different decade, and this skirt just screams 80's!

  2. Love this! I'm amazed that you've already styled this skirt 5 ways and not once did I think "Oh, she just wore that in the other post." To me, it was new every time! This gives me hope for my minimal wardrobe...

  3. I love remix posts. You did a wonderful job styling this skirt in a bunch of different, but equally cute, ways. I really like how each look is very unique. The 80s inspired one may have to be my favorite though.
