You Can't Teach an Old Skirt New Tricks














I haven't felt comfortable styling this skirt for a long time and so it sits, unused, in the bottom of a drawer. With a new J. Crew tank and a found confidence for styling belts, I tried it out with a layered tank and cardigan under a patent waist belt. I am not sure that I'm thrilled with the outcome. Though it certainly felt comfortable and the top half of the outfit worked, I think the skirt felt and looked sloppy. Perhaps heels would have enhanced the look a bit more... Regardless, I think it might be time to retire this skirt for good.

Do you have similar items in your closet that you just keep trying to use without much success?

Cardigan: Gap; Tank: J. Crew; Skirt: Target (similar); Belt: H&M; Shoes: Forever 21
