how to style: Trumpet skirt w/ same color palette w/ different mood

When you know a certain color palette that works for you , try to create various looks with different moods. For starters, pick a color that you feel comfortable in and team it up with neutrals. In this post of “ how to style”, I selected red as a primary color along with light beige for the secondary color. In these 2 looks, the key items are red trumpet skirt and embellished top. By changing the outwear of each look, you are able to compose 1 power dressing and 1 cozy chic style.


Look 1 : Power up your skirt

Instead of adding feminine touch to your trumpet skirt , power it up with a pea coat for a modern approach. This look will give you a powerful statement when you are seeking for attention.


  • Styling Tips: The tiniest detail for this look is finding the perfect coat to match with your trumpet skirt. The coat length should be the same as your skirt for a clean look. As for colors, the coat is slightly lighter with a hint of orange undertone compared to trumpet skirt, which gives a subtle gradation. Lastly, complete your outfit with a pair of pattern or animal print ankle boots to break out from typical Office Lady and add character to your look !


Look 2: Warm up your trumpet skirt

Add a little cozy warmth with a shearling vest to this trumpet skirt for a toned down approach. We can experiment with textures against a bold color for this style. This is a comfy yet stylish look you can try in Autumn. redskirt3

  • Styling Tips: Look for a darker tone of neutral to go along with your top. The dark tone will slim down your upper body without looking bulky. Accessorize with sunglasses and a colorful clutch to brighten up your overall appearance. You will want to look stylish while feeling cozy. I like to complete this look with a pair of dandy loafers instead of ballerina flats.
