the volume skirt

Flared skirts are so in trend now especially the midi ones. Obviously I can’t wear those, so I always have a lookout for the maxi versions. The most predictable way of styling a flared skirt is by tucking in a blouse or a shirt in it. So I try to think of ways on how to “modernize” skirts like these, especially the one I designed for FashionValet for Downy. I tried the volume on volume pairing the other day and I loved it. Big sweater, big skirt, and a sling bag. Just gotta make sure you pull up the sleeves slightly so that you don’t look like a big tent of fabric.

Here, I paired the black skirt with a jersey top. I was this close to tucking it in like usual, but then I stopped and thought hmmm this look could work!

Wearing a top from FV BASICS, skirt (restocking this Tuesday with a new colour too!) from FV for Downy (whole collection is on 40% off now), both FashionValet. Bag from Celine, headscarf from dUCk, heels from Sophia Webster.
