I’ve talked extensively about the importance of neutral, staple wardrobe items to be found in every bougie girl’s closet. I’ve got an item to add to your list!
A black skirt.
Now, I won’t get specific about the cut or texture you should purchase. I think every woman needs to find the shape and textile that works best for her complexion and body type.
Over Christmas I purchased this little black skater skirt from H&M for $25. It’s surprisingly sturdy and well made for a fast fashion buy! I love how the silhouette is casual and flirty but still structured and that it can be dressed up for a dinner party or date night. (Here are a few similar skirts H&M has available on their website.)
The key when styling a neutral or otherwise flat or boring piece is combining it with items that have a very different texture or color.
For this casual look I paired the simple skirt with a chambray top from Forever21 and my favorite orange fringe from Melie Bianco. I love the juxtaposition of the black cotton with the thick texture of the denim top.
So, bougie ladies. Invest in a black skirt. Find the silhouette that fits you best and pair it with bold and colorful textiles and textures!
