Today while walking Zoe the Bearded Collie we bumped into a young woman who I thought looked just fabulous. She was wearing a print black and white straight slim skirt, opaque tights with tall black boots, a sheer black long sleeve top(not tucked in) and a black cami underneath with bright red lipstick. It was a great outfit. I found a sheer black top and a sheer white top and here are various ways you can wear them with three types of slim straight skirts-casual, dressy and semi dressy. All the skirts wlll work well with a sweater.
$128.00 This top will look great with a straight skirt like the one below or jeans!

Wear this cowl neck sweater($140.00) with all three skirts.

This skirt by Calvin Klein is $89.50 and it comes in plus sizes! This can look expensive if you wear it the right way!
All three of these skirts are going to look great with a white blouse tucked in like this one for $298.00 by Joie.

$625.00 I tried these boots and they look gorgeous on! Comfortable and chic at the same time.
The silk top has replaced tee shirt or even the classic cotton shirt. We love this one by Diane von Furstenberg for $245. It will work with a slim jean and tall boots or these very flattering flare corduroy's by Rachel Zoe for $195.00. These gorgeous earrings by Push are $121.00 and this stellar handbag by Anya Hindmarch is $895.00. Hot outfit!
I recently have become a huge fan of Diane von Furstenberg clothing. Each season the line looks new and exciting. It is well priced and different ages can wear it. We love the shape of this dress($365.00)-very flattering. Team it with these suede pumps from Stuart Weitzman for $375.00. We have some glorious handbag choices here-for casual go with a bag by Reed Krakoff and if you want something dressier we adore this bag by Alexander McQueen.
This is your outfit-you have a cashmere/merino sweater for only $108.00 that comes in some fabulous other basic colors. Wear is with this very M Missoni like skirt from Peruvian Connection(for only $149.00) and these amazing boots from Nine West(that come in other leather and suede colors) that are only $169.00! You have such a reasonable outfit-if you feel like it you can splurge on a McQueenie handbag for $2,595.00 and there is only one left!
*Note-we always need basic cardigans in our wardrobe and this comes in lots of colors and the price is right. The Nine West boots really look expensive for the price.
