I love a classic a-line skirt, even more so when it has a hint of gold in it. And the one I am sharing today doesn’t disappoint! I think that one of the reasons that I love an a-line skirt is that they have a very retro feel. One thing I love is vintage and retro fashion. Not the crazy fashion from the 80’s but the classic and elegant fashion from the 50’s and 60’s.
Originally I ordered this skirt to style for Christmas or New Year’s Eve. But when I received it, I felt like it had more versatility than just the holidays. There are a lot of different ways you could style it, but for today’s post, I elected to just stick to a classic look. The skirt fits well and has the movement I love. It is flowy and classic. The waist cinches perfect and the subtle pleats are very flattering. I love the midi length as well. That is why I love a classic a-line skirt.
While I wanted to pair this skirt with a gold top, when I did it, I didn’t love it. I felt like it took away from the beauty of the skirt. So, I opted for a sweater with lace sleeves instead. And I really love the way it turned out. Once I added simple gold jewelry, like my favorite gold locket and gold hoops it was the perfect look. I finished the look with my favorite studded pumps. Do you love classic style too? Or are you more into trends? I do both, but am more classic than not.
I took a short break from my blog and social media over the last week. December is my busiest time of year at work and I had a lot of family functions as well. I have several blog posts planned for this week and hope that you will come back and read them. I am going to share my top blog posts of the year, things I have learned in this decade and more. As always, thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
