Elevated Black Skirts
Every girl has to have one or two (or five) black skirts.
The building block / backdrop to many outfits is the black skirt. Whenever I find a good black skirt, I buy it! Because you can never have too many. There are so many different kinds; long, short, simple, and elaborate.
There are two types of black skirts. There are those that work as a blank slate for a more elaborate top. Then there are those that are real statement pieces, and you don’t really need much to go with it, because it stands on its own. For example, I own a black skirt that I bought over 5 years ago, something really unique. It was quite expensive, but five years down the road I have goten my money’s worth many times over. Every time I wear it, it gets noticed.
So here are the a few black skirts that I think are great to own, from the simple to the more elaborate.
This is a great silk drawstring maxi skirt. I love the shape of this skirt, and the waistline. It is good for tucking something in or to wear with a crop top. For someone who likes the look of slip skirts but not the fit, this is a great silky option that won’t hug your body.
Here is another silky option, this is more of a slip skirt shape. This is my favorite slip skirt, I don’t find it to be too clingy and it has a nice thick fabric.
This is a silky skirt in an easy pull-on style. In this skirt, you will look effortlessly dressed.
This is a cute cotton skirt with a flounce. It’s summery and flirty. A perfect backdrop to wear with summery tops.
This skirt is literally in my shopping cart, I absolutely love it! it is waisted so it will really compliment a tucked in top nicely. This skirt can work well with a short waisted tucked out sweater too. And the draping is perfection. This is the type of skirt that makes the outfit, you don’t need much with it, because it is a piece in itself.
Again, this skirt speaks for itself. It has great detailing such as a wrap design, partial pleating, and white stitching. All you need to make this outfit is a ribbed T-shirt in white, or any other color.
This is another great skirt by Philip Lim. I like the structured pleated style of this skirt, and the leather self-tie belt. This is a high quality polished cotton.
This is a really nice black linen maxi skirt. Though this skirt has volume, it is not too much. There is a front closure, and a great waistline. This skirt will work well for tucking in.
Here is another linen option in midi length. This skirt is a bit dressier. It has a matching belt and it is cut on a bias for a slimming shape.
A simple black cotton button down skirt for a great price.
This is a beautiful polished cotton skirt with a wide belt. A simple preppy style that will go with many different tops (they have a matching top too).
This is a really cute, easy pull-on skirt, with a flattering hemline.
This is a ribbed pull-on skirt from AllSaints with an asymmetrical bottom. The price is great.
This is a stunning pleated skirt, in a dressier fabric. This is an expensive skirt and the quality and style reflect that. So, if you are looking for a stylish and qualitative black skirt, this is for you.
Here is another really nice, pleated skirt in crepe. This is a maxi length wrap style skirt with buckle closures. I think this skirt gives off a very elegant vibe. (The white Zara top with rhinestone embellishments that I posted last week, would look so perfect tucked into this skirt for a classic look with a bit of a twist.)
This is a statement skirt. It has beautiful shape and fabric.
This adorable skirt is (surprisingly) made by Adidas. It has a bit of a sporty vibe, but the fabric is wool, so it can be dressed up too.
This is a classic black denim skirt by Mango, it has a slim fit.
Here is another black denim skirt, with a bit of a twist to it. I think this skirt is really cute, it also has a slim fit.
A classic well-made leather midi skirt. This is a quality skirt with great shape and style.
Another leather skirt option in a slimmer style. I see this skirt with a fitted turtleneck or a printed slim fitting top.
