The Summer of Skirts Look

 I'm just going to call this the summer of skirts. Yes, we all love the great summer dresses, but don't forget about the skirts ladies. Lately, they are making beyond cute printed skirts that are great for wear anytime of the day. Check out some of your local stores and see what's going on. The best thing about skirts is the ability to pair it with all types of tops. Take some time and create your unique look with the help of a skirt.

The look I created is a little black and white combo for a late afternoon outing.

Sunglasses by Miu Miu
I first paired the outfit with a nice pair of sunglasses by Miu Miu. They are big and sexy. I'm a big fan of huge glasses, never underestimate them ladies.

Clutch by Ayayo

Of course I had to add one of my favorite accessories ever, a bag. I think a cute clutch is the perfect addition to any outfit for the evening. Try to go for a color/pattern thats a little different from your outfit. It helps brings everything out a little more.

Cardigan by Baba Jaga
Yes, I know its summer, but this sheer little cardigan is soooo sexy especially for those summer breezy nights. It's  great for those ladies who don't like to show off their arms as much.

Tank top by 5Preview

This summer is a great time to stock up on tank tops with different prints that represent you. They will keep you with a nice little breeze while looking uber cool. Check out some of your local stores for cool tees for low prices. If you have a Forever 21 in the area, you need to be in there soon!

Skirt by Hugo Boss

I absolutely love this straight stripped skirt. Its truly sexy and very appropriate for the evening. When picking out a skirt, make sure you find a shirt with the right proportions to accommodate the style of skirt you choose.

Heels by Rules by Mary
Whatever you do ladies choose your shoe wisely. Don't be scared to try out something new and even crazy. Everything doesn't have to match, pairing different colors with your outfits can make your outfit pop. I chose a nice red heeled sandal that was just perfect for this look. I'm a big fan of red heels when wearing black, it definitely brings the outfit out.
