How to Style Denim Skirts: Look 3

The first formal look of the 'How to Style Denim Skirts' series features the white version of the Topshop denim skirt. I think black and white denim skirts look more formal than blue ones because it's not so obvious that they're denim pieces. Another way to make denim skirts look formal is choosing dressier tops like this gingham one that I got in the Zara sale (I was initially eyeing it up and contemplating about getting it full price but I'm so glad I didn't!). Look 1 of the 'How to Style Denim Skirts' series also features a gingham top but in a different colourway and style. This Zara gingham top is in a blue and white checked print, and has a V-neckline and long bell sleeves (which is what I like the most about it). Although you have to be careful when you eat, bell sleeves jazz up an otherwise simple outfit by adding elements of drama and fun.

The combination of blue and white screams Summer, so I opted for a mix of black and white accessories to match the clothes and give some contrast at the same time. I like the subtle mix of prints between the Zara gingham top and the Quay Australia marbled sunglasses (what did I tell you guys about the wearability of these?). These Zalora crossover mules look similar to the Mansur Gavriel crossover mules but are a fraction of the price. Bonus: they're on sale now! Lastly, my trusty Chanel WOC completes the look.
