Hi loves! This outfit is a much needed breath of fresh air from all of the tomboy/edgier looks I've been sticking to lately; man, does this girl love her pants! But finally I switched up my daily pant uniform with this dainty femme midi skirt! I am a sucker for black and white color-block that's going to make a huge comeback this spring (spoiler alert.) The midi length is also very on trend while the pleating keeps it universally flattering. I kept the rest of the look minimal with a thin black turtleneck and throwing on my favorite pleather jacket last minute. FYI, The jacket-over-the-shoulders is a quick and easy trick that can easily bring more interest to a look while bringing it all together. It also elevates the ensemble by giving it a high fashion feel.

I decided to dress up the skirt since I was actually on my way to meeting a friend for drinks, but regardless of whether the occasion called for a casual or more formal attire, my goal is to always look effortless! I never want to look like I thought too much about the outfit. That's kinda what having style is all about anyways; your outfits should naturally come together based on your mood and aesthetic. A key to dressing effortless is incorporating an unexpected nonchalant touch to your everyday look such as tousled bedhead hair with a dressier outfit, worn in sneakers to add a tomboy appeal to a feminine look, half-tucked button-up with boyfriend jeans, tying a button up around your hips, uneven rolled cuffs on pants, throwing a jacket over your shoulders, etc...
