Purple mini skirt remix

Today I'm featuring my first ever reader request. The style challenge: a bright purple jewel tone mini skirt to be worn with sheer tights on the weekend.

I put together a couple looks for both evening and daytime, and while I chose a lot of neutrals, I also picked pieces with tons of texture. A blazer with leather panels, color blocked bags, bejeweled chambray, polka dot mesh, and so forth.

While solid sheer tights would work with every look, I think it would also be fun to try a pattern like mini checks or swiss dots, especially for the evening looks.

  15. I love the picks! I've been obsessively going to my Goodwill looking for a jew tone skirt. I think I could pull some of these off with my Navy knit though...

  16. Wow great looks! I love swiss dots on tights. And that last casual look is unexpected but so perfect!

  17. I have to admit, and I'm sure it will come as no surprise, that a purple mini skirt isn't exactly something I would consider highly wearable, never mind repeatable in multiple ways. But you did an absolutely brilliant job with these remixes, so much so that I'm having a hard time even choosing a favourite look. Although for my own purposes, I'd probably swap in a black mini ;)
