Anthro Copy Cat: Green Midi Skirt

Ever since my big closet clean out, I have been trying to look objectively at every article of clothing that is in my closet.  One piece that I was wavering on was a green midi skirt that I featured on one of my early posts showing 4 ways of how to style it.  Just after thinking I was going to part ways with the skirt, an Anthro Instagram post made me stop in my tracks.  It showed a very similar skirt with other items that were very similar to other pieces I already owned.

I fell in love with the look and wanted to see how I could translate it without spending a dime.  It was a cross of a little flirty and a little edgy that just appealed to me.

My version had all the same elements with the green flowey midi skirt, ivory camisole, leather drape front jacket, and peep toe booties.  Although this look is fairly simple, they combination of hard and soft play nicely off of each other.

Aztec Rings from Old Navy

The rings the Anthro model wore were big and spectacular.  I selected a ring set I got from Old Navy a while ago that have an Aztec pattern on them.  That and my wedding band, complete the look.

This look is super comfortable and easy to work in.  My love for skirts and dresses is growing daily and you will be seeing a whole bunch of them when Spring and Summer arrive.

  1. Drawing inspiration from serendipitous places – I love it! I am rarely able to emulate an entire look from an Anthro catalog since every piece is usually so unique and special. I think you did a fabulous job of replicating this look, and all with pieces in your closet! You make me want to try it out!

    I think the green midi skirt is a lovely piece, but I can understand why it might be hard to style. That length can be so hard to wear. I think the chunky heeled booties were a really smart choice, and the jacket gives the look more of an urban edge. I think it’s those creative juxtapositions that move a potentially dowdy skirt into the realm of the hip and cool.

    1. Thank you Liz! I know, midi skirts seem to fall almost to maxis on me as I know you have the same challenge. I really like how these shoes look with the skirt. I also like that we are both sporting black leather jackets on our posts today!

    1. Yes, I have to say that you were one of the first bloggers I started following several years ago and just was so taken with your mix of Anthro pieces. It means a lot to me to hear your compliments and for you to read my blog too!

      Thanks,
      Janeane
