One Skirt Styled Four Ways: Victoria Beckham for Target Black & White Skirt | Designing From My Closet

Whenever I purchase an article of clothing, I try to imagine how many ways I can wear it with items already existing in my closet.  My ideal is to be able to style a piece at least three different ways.  When I got the black & white striped tulip skirt from the Victoria Beckham collection at Target, I knew the neutral colors would pair with the many colorful tops I have and that the shape would be fun enough for me to want to wear it again and again.  Today I have styled this skirt four different ways to show how I am wearing it.

Dressing with Color, Texture, and Print | Designing From My Closet

If there is one thing that I love to incorporate into rooms when designing, it is color, texture, and print.  These three elements combined create a magical moment that is so memorable.  One of my missions here on Designing From My Closet is to expand women’s visions of how they view themselves.  Encouraging new ways of dressing and stepping out of their normal is something I love to do.  Seeing ourselves in a new light, as beautiful and unique individuals who go out into the world to inspire others wherever we go.

Today I want to cover specifically what dressing with color, texture, and print means and how it makes such an impact using items I recently got from Avenue.  One dress gets two different looks by switching out layers and shoes.

I am all about having both stand out, bold statement pieces as well as great versatile items that can mix and match with a lot of other garments in my closet.  Very rarely to these remixable pieces are considered “basic” in my eyes because I still like to have some sort of detail that makes them special.  Take these Ava & Viv Utility Jeggings that I picked up a while ago at Target for example.  Today I am showing you four looks utilizing these great pants from casual to dressy-casual along with telling you what makes them so unique.
