A Black Skirt and Shirt Blouse

One of the most versatile items you can have in your closet is the black skirt. It can be acquired in many different styles and worn for a variety of occasions. These range from casual and fun to elegant to work related occasions. Because this color can be worn with any other the style of your outfit is based upon the fabric and the accessories that are combined with it.

There are several different types of black skirts available to purchase online as well as the local department store. If you are looking for a specific style then time is a factor in your purchase. Going online will eliminate the amount of time it takes to find exactly what you are looking for. Going to a brick and mortar store will allow you to try on the clothing before you purchase it but will take you far longer to find the type you are looking for. These styles range from a straight pencil skirt, the mini skirt, knee skirt which is flared as well as a longer flared skirt.

What style of black skirt you purchase should rely heavily on your body shape and type. If you are looking for an extremely versatile item of clothing for any size body then the pencil skirt is the perfect solution. It is available in any length and transforms from the office to the club simply by changing your shirt or blouse, your make-up, your hairstyle and accessories.

On the opposite side of the spectrum, the mini version of the black skirt does not look good on everyone. That is not to say that it only looks good on those that are model-skinny, however, it takes a confident woman to pull it off. This article of clothing should be reserved for after office hours. If you like the look of the mini but don't feel quite so confident about the way your legs look in it then try wearing leggings or tights underneath it. This will help keep legs looking sleek and solid.

If you're looking for a fun black skirt then consider those that are pleated or flared. Whatever the length, these tend to bounce when you walk. This will give you a little bounce in your step. If it is paired with the right top, such as a blouse and blazer, then it can be completely appropriate for the office. A fun blouse or t-shirt makes this a great date outfit.

It's so easy to work a black skirt into your wardrobe, it can easily become a regularly worn piece of apparel. Black tights are just as versatile, but have a decidedly more casual look.
