In honor of basics week, we’re celebrating three classic silhouettes styled three different ways. We’ve gone over how to style a white t shirt and cami dress. Now we’re covering scuba skirts.
From the water to land, this skirt is sure to be a hit anywhere
Scuba skirts got their name from being made out of material similar to what literal scuba suits (wet suits) are made out of. It’s a tough, yet insanely comfortable material that sticks to your curves as you move to show your shape, and bonus – because they were inspired by underwater fashion, they can withstand having drinks spilled on them.
What may be the best thing about these skirts is their ability to be worn multiple ways, while still maintaining a feminine and flirty edge that will have you looking cute no matter what. To help you best show off your scuba skirt, we’ve put together three ways to flaunt these fun skirts.
Look 1: Rock Chic
Get out your inner grunge by incorporating some rock n’ roll attitude with your scuba skirt outfit. Tie up or tuck in a vintage looking graphic tee to add a little mess to this feminine skirt. The juxtaposition is attention grabbing in all the right ways. Then, go for some patterned faux leather oxford shoes and a dark hat to keep that bad girl look rocking.
Look 2: Date Night
Look sweet as can be for a night out with your significant other (or a new date!) by pairing your scuba skirt with mesh materials and floral details. We chose a tan mesh bodysuit, with bold roses to match with the red of the skirt. Pro tip – always match the details on top with the color of your skirt, or vice versa. For shoes, we styled heels with clear straps and a sparkly chunky heel, in order to maintain that girly, yet fashionable flair. A statement clutch, like our black purse with bedazzled writing, pulls it all together.
Look 3: At Work
Think it’s impossible to make a skirt you used to channel your rocker side to being suitable for work? Think again! Use a blazer to create a polished, preppy and cute look for your work day. When choosing a blazer, look for contrasting colors to the skirt, and match it with some strappy shoes to make the look pop. Accessorize with some hoop earrings and a choker to match the shirt and shoes, and voila! You have the perfect office outfit – work appropriate, but without losing personality.
