#FASHIONFRIDAYS | Styling The Red Skirt

Welcome to week 3 of my #fashionfridays series! If you haven't read the previous posts I will link them at the end of this one.

If you'd have told me 2 years ago that I would be wearing anything other than black I would have laughed in your face, but for some reason this red skirt spoke to me. I know, it's a mini skirt and as I rapidly approach ages where mini skirts are off the agenda I'm going to squeeze as many into my wardrobe as possible. In this post I'm going to show you two ways to style it - for day and for evening.

The shade has been very 'on-trend' this summer but for some, it can be quite difficult to wear. For day time, I'm all about keeping it the focus but balancing out the features - throwing on an over-sized denim jacket, a statement T and some vans. I try to stick with the rule of either legs or chest exposed at any one time, I mean there is no specific rule you do you, but I find this is the trick with making pieces like this work. 

Top- H&M
Skirt - Topshop (don't stock it anymore but similar ones here and here
Jacket - New Look
Shoes - Vans

For the evening, I applied a similar rule as above and had my chest covered with this high cut top. I love the floral embroidery and the flailed sleeves, paired with my embroidered mules. The skirt takes full attention, but the red detailing in the embroidery pulls the whole look together, I think it's nice to have a bit of pattern when rocking a block colour - stops it from looking so in-your-face. I also added some gold earrings featured in my statement earrings post to add a touch of glam. 

Top - Primark
Skirt - Topshop
Shoes - Primark
Earrings - Primark

evidently I love a bit of Primark.
