Real World Style – Skirt with Knit


styling skirt with a knit topMany people think that the only easy and relaxed way to dress is to wear pants (trousers, not underpants for you people reading in the UK!). But really a skirt can be just as easy to wear (and I think more comfortable often) than a pair of pants.  I love a skirt made from a stretch fabric with a knit top of some kind – it’s comfortable yet looks way more stylish than yoga pants and many jeans!

The great thing about skirts is that they come at many lengths, from maxi to mini.

  • I agree particularly in summer when you have bare legs. It gets harder in winter when you have to wear tights for warmth . It may be OK if you are happy to wear black tights but I am weeding out black and quality coloured tights are hard to find and introduce another factor into getting out the door looking like you actually planned your outfit.

  • I love the idea of a tunic top over a stretch straight skirt and have tried often to do this but I just can’t seem to get the proportions right. I regularly wear tunic length tops over pants or tights, both full length and cropped, and am happy with how that looks but I just can’t seem to make it work with a skirt. I am only 5 feet tall, so I guess that doesn’t help. Any advice?
