Skirts: 1, 2, 3

Do you struggle with transforming your outfits from day to night? Don’t worry, CF is here to help turn that daily annoyance into a fun challenge. Class to Night Out focuses on one piece per week, and aims to help you take your look from study sessions in the library to dancing the night away.

I’ll be the first to admit it: The black and white striped maxi skirt trend is NOT something I would usually go for. The bold stripes are way too dramatic for my typically down-to-earth style, and when styled improperly, these skirts can easily veer towards a jailbird vibe.

However, I’ve really warmed up to this trend recently. With the right styling, black and white striped maxi skirts can look extremely chic and trendy. This trend is also a great way to wear a maxi skirt without giving your look a boho feel, so it’s perfect for girls with edgier sensibilities.

If you’ve been hesitant about this trend (or even if you’re already obsessed) look no further, because this week’s Class to Night Out is devoted to the black and white striped maxi skirt. Learn how to rock the trend or just grab some inspiration below!

Even though these skirts are super-edgy, it’s still easy to look feminine and polished while wearing one. This skirt, from Free People, is so very versatile! Pair it with a preppy pink long-sleeved tee, making sure your top is well-fitted. Balance the look by cinching everything in at the waist with a bold black belt. Since we’re going to add color with our jewelry, accessorize with simple black sandals and a matching shoulder bag. Then, add pops of color with an aqua tab necklace and matching studs.

Go rocker-chic for your night out ensemble by pairing your skirt with a tight black cropped tank. Not only does this create visual balance, but it’s also a super-sultry, yet understated look. Grab a pair of killer cut-out wedges, and play with pops of yellow and blue for a bold feel. Try a bejeweled tab statement necklace and big crystal studs in an elegant teal shade to complete the outfit.

    I’ve done maxi dresses, and worn maxi skirts hitched up as dresses, but not maxi skirts. If I were to try, though I think they may be a step too far from my comfort zone, perhaps a more toned down one would suit me more! The grey and white chevron patterned one at the top is quite nice, but would have no idea how to style it to suit me.

    I do like the black and white trend though, it seems smart.

    maxi skirts/dresses don’t work well on my body proportions, sadly :( BUT I have the earrings from the first outfit! I love how they’re simple and classic but have a nice hint of color. they go with everything!
