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: Cozy Chic

Product Info: Skirt- Forever 21, Earrings- Shopbop, Sweater- River Island, Hair Bow- Nordstrom, Shoes- Dorothy Perkins, Tights- Macy’s

A velveteen skirt is ultra-luxe, but we love the idea dressing it down bit, like in the outfit above. Since this Fab Find is high-waisted, you can pair it with a cropped sweater to create a look that is both cozy and on-trend. Dotted tights add interest, while lace-up boots are a stylish pick. Keep the accessories fun with a girly studded hair bow and these ridiculously adorable penguin stud earrings.

Outfit #2: Fancy & Festive

This skirt works for fancier occasions, too! In this look, pair our Fab Find with a black-and-white chiffon blouse and Mary-Jane pumps for a classically chic ensemble. A metallic chain-strap bag continues the festive vibe, as does this jeweled cocktail ring. For the finishing touch, play up the burgundy hue of the skirt by painting your lips a deep shade of oxblood.

Outfit #3: New Year’s Glam

For a NYE-worthy outfit that’s full of glamour, try pairing this body-con skirt with a fun peplum top. This one already has a statement-making embellished neckline, so there’s no need for a necklace! Continue the luxe look with some metallic tights and a sequined clutch, then add a trendy touch with a pair of cut-out platforms. Lastly, create a jewel-like mani with the help of these sparkling nail polishes.
