Outfit Inspiration

If you like this cheap and chic skirt, then you’re going to love the outfits we put together for inspiration. Read on to find out three stylish ways to wear this week’s Fabulous Find:

Outfit #1

Faux leather midi skirt, graphic tee, denim jacket, loafers
Product Info: Skirt- Forever 21, Jacket- H&M, Top- Mango, Bag- ASOS, Shoes- ASOS, Necklace- Piperlime

Rock this Fab Find on campus by pairing it with a no-fuss graphic tee. Leather and denim look awesome together, so layer a denim jacket over the tee. Loafers keep the outfit casual, while a color-blocked bag is ideal for holding all of your essentials for class. For the finishing touch, accessorize with a delicate layered charm necklace.

Outfit #2

Faux leather midi skirt, studded sweater, ankle boots
Product Info: Skirt- Forever 21, Watch/Bracelet Set- Miss Selfridge, Top- JCPenney, Scarf- ModCloth, Shoes- H&M, Bag- Amazon

This next ensemble would be perfect to wear during the weekend or in any other low-key setting. A studded sweater pairs nicely with the faux leather skirt, as do these autumn-appropriate ankle boots. Incorporate a pop of color with a scarf – this plaid one could be worn around your neck or even tied in your hair for a chic look. Complete the outfit with an adorable graphic tote, a classic wristwatch, and a gold chain bracelet.

Outfit #3

Faux leather midi skirt, lace blouse, pumps, blazer
Product Info: Skirt- Forever 21, Bag- Sole Society, Top- ModCloth, Blazer- Dorothy Perkins, Shoes- Zara, Earring- Zara, Nail Polish- Butter London

An über-trendy skirt like this one can easily be dressed up for a fancy occasion, which is just what we’ve done in this final look. Start by tucking a pretty lace blouse into the skirt, then add a structured, burgundy-hued blazer. Ankle strap pumps and jeweled earrings continue the dressy vibe, while a tiger-adorned bag is a fun touch. Lastly, paint your nails a cool copper shade, which will really pop against the skirt and blazer.

    Ooh I love it!! I can’t wait to go and get it (they also have it in a reddish leather :D) I’m gonna try to put it together with something similar to outfit 1 – I’ve always thought that leather and jean was too much together but maybe not ;)

    This skirt is great! In the Uk you still see girls wearing those trashy fitted leather skirts from the eighties, I’m sure they get them from thrift shops something. The skirt you show is way better than those old relics.
