Skirts are so easy to wear. They are so comfortable, easy to put on and you look ready for anything. Sometimes, however, when we get to a certain age we might look at ourselves in the mirror and wonder how to jazz up the look. Let me help you style a skirt since I live in them every day.

I’m going to show you several looks using just one skirt. So let’s get started.

This first look is my everyday uniform. Like many people wear jeans and a tshirt I throw on a skirt and a tshirt. In the summer it’s cooler and in the winder it’s easy to add tights and a cardigan. I like a tshirt that ends at my waist or tucked in.

Ready for summer? This top is a little less fitted the one in the previous photo but it still fits. Sometimes when we are heavier or plus size we are hesitant to wear things that are fitted but surprisingly something that fits closer to the body can help you because the beautiful curves and hourglass shape comes through. Add some cute as heck shoes and you are ready for anything.

How about an office look. I love a button down shirt. Of course I have a lot of white tops in my closet but that doesn’t mean you have to stick with white. Get out the colorful tops. Don’t be afraid to stand out in a crowd. See how the defined waist helps to give me a shape? And when you are in doubt keep the rule of thirds in mind.

Add a cropped cardigan and this outfit can take you from spring through fall. If you go for a longer cardigan look for something that is the length of the skirt rather than something that stops at hip length. Or, if you got fpor the hip length cardigan you might like to add a wide belt at the waist to cinch it in – which would mean this wrap skirt wouldn’t be a great choice.

Finally for fall and early spring add a bright scarf. You might have a bunch of cute jackets in your closet. A blazer, a shorter length denim jacket, or a Chanel style jacket would be perfect and change up the look for lots of occasions.

add a little jacket which can dress it up or dress it down. This is shown with a denim jacket.

One skirt five looks and there are so many more opportunities to style it.

Just one more thing. A good bra is a must have. As we get older gravity takes it’s toll and a good supportive bra will give you back that space between your bust and your waist. Every body is beautiful and knowing how to dress your particular shape is the key to feeling beautiful every day. Adn when you feel beautiful it shines through to the world.

Want your own wrap skirt? I’m ready to make one for you in your favorite color and a print that reflects the real you. Or if you are needing a sold color for your capsule wartdorbe I can help with that too! Maybe a reversible wrap with a bold print on one side and a solid on the other!
