In this style guide, I will be styling a slip skirt in a whole bunch of different ways for different scenarios and seasons. Slip skirts are a popular style, and I think that they are also very versatile. I’ve gone for a rich bronze, which not only pairs well with so many different things because it is a neutral color but it also a gorgeous heavenly tone that elevates whatever you wear it with.
Style a Midi Slip Skirt 20 Ways
Make the skirt the centerpiece of your outfit against a black canvas. A simple black top, open-toe heels, and blazer give your skirt the attention it deserves.
Add a chain necklace, a belt, and some pointed-toe heels, and you’ve just taken your outfit up a notch. Never underestimate how a few accessories can transform a look.
Get back to basics with a black tee and some white sneakers. The contrast here of casual elements with the dressed-up skirt creates an elevated everyday look.
Street style inspired
Give it some attitude with a graphic tee and a baseball cap.
Street style layered
Add a denim jacket if it’s chilly and you’re ready to rule the streets.
Put a shirt dress on top of a plain white tee for a long and flowy look. The matching length of the dress and the skirt make for a harmonious outfit.
Add a belt to define your waist and keep your figure looking slim.
A crisp white skirt will keep you looking nonchalant and carefree. This is a light and easy look that’s beauty is in its simplicity.
Contrasting doesn’t have to mean opposite colors. Here I’ve gone for a light blue top which creates a contrast that is soft and gentle on the eyes.
A winning way to make any outfit a bit more exciting is by introducing different textures into the look. This cotton sweater is a perfect accompaniment to the silk skirt, and the contrasting textures complement one another really well.
Denim jackets and weekends go hand in hand. This is one of those throw it on and get out the door outfits that will still allow you to look stylish and put together.
Summer for me means long evenings strolling along the riviera. This polka dot shirt in nautical colors is the perfect piece for such an occasion.
Mix it up with some playful prints. Here I’m wearing a plaid blazer on top of a polka dot blouse. This is quite a busy look yet doesn’t look excessive or jarring. When paring prints, go for more simple patterns and colors that aren’t overly loud.
Less is more with this minimalist look. A simple black top paired with white flats and minimal accessories creates an outfit that is stylish in its simplicity.
Change it up with a long top for a dropped waist silhouette. I love this outfit because it just shows how versatile the skirt can be. The off-the-shoulder detail adds a touch of glam.
You can’t go wrong with a white shirt and a black blazer. Paired with the silk skirt, this creates a sophisticated and debonair look.
Pair a pop of bright red with the neutral tone of the skirt for a complementary color combination.
For an elegant, understated look, pair the skirt with an earth-toned top. The square neckline of this top frames my neckline nicely and adds some interest to the minimalism of the outfit.
Fall date night
Cuddle up on date night with a cozy oversized sweater. Tuck it in at the front so that your waistline stays nicely defined. Who said that you can’t be snug and stylish at the same time?
Stay warm and polished with a pair of black heeled boots and a turtleneck top. Shrug on a timeless camel coat for when it gets chilly.
Nothing quite says edgy like lug sole boots. Complete the vibe with a black hoodie, a black coat, and a trendy leather bag (extra edgy points if it’s secondhand or vintage).
Cream on top of black is one of those intriguing fashion looks where you have to see it to believe it works. Well, now you’ve seen that it does look chic - go try it.
