I’ve been having this strange closet balance between only wanting to invest in better quality pieces (quality over quantity!) and then randomly finding the best pieces at Target and Forever 21. I’m such a walking contradiction.
I recently had one of those Target trips where I brought 74 items into the fitting room and zero worked. Well, I walked out with one because I was too embarrassed not to take anything, and sheepishly put it back myself. Anyway, after that I saw this denim skirt and immediately fell in love with the longer length, frayed hem and flattering silhouette that would work for a variety of body types. I tossed this one in my cart, grabbed a fitted striped tee, and figured I’d test it at home.
I’m so glad I came across this skirt, part of the Who What Wear collection. Denim anything is so on trend, and easily looks like something that would cost $100+. So many of the skirts are that 90s style with buttons down the front but that terrifies me… anyone else afraid that their underwear (and more!) is one pop away from the public?!
This outfit is ideal for a casual work environment and could go nighttime with my favorite Topshop camisole and strappy heels. Or, add a blazer, or a button down for a more professional spin.
