I love a good novelty item – a statement bag, printed shoes or a graphic tee can be a total outfit game changer! SO when I saw this super fun FRUIT SKIRT (and no, I will not stop shouting, “FRUIT SKIRT”, these are celebratory words that should be screamed, not said) I had to have it, and style it three ways for you – press play, and take a peek!
THREE WAYS TO WEAR IT!
Classic with a Twist – Black & White stripes go with everything right? Right! And FRUIT SKIRTS are no exception! I rocked this skirt with the world’s best black & white striped skirt
Retro Chic – Pairing your punchy skirt with a red lip, red shoes and a fun retro top will give your look a fun and flirty fifties twist!
Pattern Play – I love to mix my matches, so when I saw this FRUIT SKIRT, I thought it would be really fun to pair with polka dots, no Dalmatian spots!!
I knew that some of you would see this FRUIT SKIRT and be as excited as was about it, but that others would see it and be totally overwhelmed about how to style such a thing. Purchasing a statement piece like this fruity friend can be a challenge in that way, because you might find yourself feeling like you can only wear it once or twice for fear of looking like a repeat offender. Well, don’t fret! Here’s even More ways to rock this skirt:
With a baseball tee (shop here) // With a bralette (shop here) // With a denim jacket (shop here) With a classic white tee (shop here) // With a graphic tee (shop here)
With something striped (shop here) // With Gingham (shop here)x
With a scalloped hem top (shop here) // With a Boyfriend Blazer (shop here)
Okay, now on to the – Color Me Cliff notes! Where I share sizing info and exclusive details about this look! If you don’t read anything else on here (tear) read this!!
Incase you haven’t gathered, I LOVE THIS FRUIT SKIRT! It’s crazy comfortable, has an awesomely thick waist band and fits like a dream, I’m wearing a Medium but honestly could have gotten away with a small, and it probably would have been a little more fitter/flattering. So if you’re shaped like me, I suggest the size small! Also the length is great! it’s a true midi if you’re fun sized (remember I’m 5’1″) or a pencil length skirt if you’re a little taller (5’4″ and up!)
This Dalmatian Printed Tunic is to die for! It’s actually long enough to be a dress on me, but I tucked it into the skirt for some fun pattern play, yay! I can’t wait to rock this all summer long with wedges or sandals, in the Fall with tights and for Winter with over the knee boots!
If I can’t convince you that you NEED this fruit skirt (and you really, really do) at least believe me that you also need this striped tee. TBH I got this striped tee for this post specifically, and thought “hey another striped tee” – uhm, wrong! This tee is a total game changer, It’s made from the softest cotton candy unicorn material that totally rocks my world, and its long and stretchy enough to be worn with almost anything. The material is light weight, but not too thin so you can tuck it into EVERYTHING, knot it or wear it loose! Mine has been on a world tour since it’s arrival in my closet, making appearances with everything from dressy midi skirts, jeans & sneakers, lounge wear and more. Honestly, get this shirt, it will change your world (okay, maybe not, but it will totally change your wardrobe!).
