Remix: Orange Print Skirt



One might be tempted to think an item clothing has limited possibilities due to its color or its print, but this skirt is here to prove to you otherwise. With its admittedly loud orange tones and the vintage print, I'd initially been a bit hesitant to add it to my closet. I love a vintage/retro look, but if that's all a piece can do, its seeing limited time off the hanger. Plus, it is a skirt, so its more of a warmer-weather piece.

While not much can be done to make it more wintery- a skirt is a skirt is a skirt, after all. However, finding complimentary colors really opened up the possibilities of remixing. Plus, adding basics in those contrasting colors kept things from getting too kitschy with the vintage print.  I've only had this skirt a few months and even though there's already four different ways I could wear this, I'm sure there's more remixing possibilities to come.

  2. It is surprising how a bold piece like this can be remixed so well. I do find that adding a crinoline always makes a summer skirt much warmer for winter, although that might not suit your work.

    1. A crinoline does make things warmer, but it is so windy here, it is hard to wear skirts in winter.
