Class to Night Out: Floral Skater Skirt


Floral skater skirts
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.

Florals? In January? Yep!

Though bold, tropical prints can look a bit costume-y this time of year, an understated floral pattern (think roses or peonies) in a feminine, neutral color can actually look really stylish in the winter months. Don’t believe me? I’ll prove it!

If you’re looking for a way to wear chic florals this winter, look no further. This week, I’ll be showing you how to style a floral skater skirt for both a day of classes and a night out.

For a sweet, feminine daytime look, pair your skirt with a simple mint green sweater. Soft pinks, like those on the skirt, look amazing with candy-colored hues… even in winter! Next, add a pair of metallic brogues for a twist on the classic, ladylike footwear. Accessorize with adorable bird-shaped studs and a spiked statement necklace for on-trend, edgy contrast. Finish with a rugged brown cross-body bag to hold your essentials, and don’t forget to warm up with a pair of gray tights!

Floral Skater Skirt: Night Out

For night, pair your girly skirt with sheer white blouse layered over a lace bandeau for a look that’s both put-together and unexpectedly wild. Next, add trendy contrast with a rough faux leather jacket (also an excellent choice for keeping warm on chilly winter nights). Keep your accessories simple but edgy – try out a pair of cool lion-shaped studs and a stack of gold-toned bangles to add a bit of sparkle. Complete the look with a modern classic – a pair of grey suede ankle booties.

    Those skirts are too cute! I absolutely love the first set! I think the spike necklace adds just the right amount of edge to an otherwise feminine outfit! Such a fabulous juxtaposition!

    Hi! I’ve been seeing this description across fashion sites and online shops, but no one (not even Wikipedia) can tell me what a skater skirt/dress IS. Can you define it for me? What makes something a skater-style garment as opposed to something else? What is specific about its cut? (If I wanted to look for this style on the rack, how could I tell what it was without a big sign that said, “skater skirts!”?)

    I think a skater skirt is basically a short skirt that sort of flares, with lots of folds in the fabric, like an accordion. A trumpet skirt has the flare lower down past the hips past a stretch of fabric that doesn’t have the ruffly type folds. Idk if that makes sense.

    Love both outfits, however I definitely could wear them right now, probably not with an infinite pair of tights on. If you can come up with an outfit for – 30 degrees celcius weather that would be FANTASTIC lol.

    I have a slight obsession of floral patterns with muted colors (like the one above) and I love both outfit inspirations – I can see myself wearing those outfits. x) Thank you for sharing! :)
