Have you ever had to go to multiple events in one day and wished that you had time to change your clothes to suit the event better? Well, I found one perfect piece to make three different looks out of. This simple black pleated skirt can take you from daytime at the office, to happy hour, and on to dinner and a night out. The secret? Elastic waist! Yes, the skirt must have an elastic waist. And with that one thing that is usually a fashion faux pas, you can have three different outfits. It is also obviously very helpful if the skirt is longer, falling below the knee.
DAYTIME: Wear the skirt at your hips. Put on a longer shirt, or a tunic, that is fitted towards the bottom. Then add a long, bold necklace.
DRINKS: Wear the waist of the skirt under your arms with the same daytime shirt and belt it at the waist. No necklace is necessary for this look.
DINNER/OUT: Again, wear the skirt under your arms, but without the shirt. You suddenly have a strapless mini-dress! Put a cool belt around your waist and add a blazer or small, structured jacket with it. Add a longer necklace again, but make sure it is not too bold and doesn’t compete with your belt.
And there you have it—three totally different outfits from one simple piece. You are probably wondering where in the world you are going to find an elastic waist skirt these days. Hint: Goodwill!
