Thoughts on what colors would pair with this skirt

Post by Freedomforall »

I purchased this on Ebay. Please give me your thoughts on what tops would pair well with it.

Thank you!

I think either a plain white or plain black t-shirt would work with that skirt.

I have never seen this kind of camouflage pattern. ;)

With my very limited sense of color co-ordination, I would say at least a solid color.

Given the time of year, and the style of that skirt, I’d go with a black turtleneck.
I don't want to LOOK like a woman, I just want to DRESS like a woman.

Well I would go BOLDLY with "RED" - - -
You have come this far - lets go the rest of the way !
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !

I'll second that notion -- and since the only colours therein are black and white -- any colour would go well. I'd be tempted to try it with an electric blue or a vivid purple.

Yes, just be bold with it. Something like this perhaps?

Yes can't image SD wearing anything longer than half way down the thigh !

That is a nifty trick. I thought you had the same skirt at first!!

Personally, I’d go for a white Henley with a black vest. SkirtsDad had the tights right - sheer black, white, or gray.

Plain black or white, your choice. Or any strong shade: red, royal blue, green, purple.
Keep on skirting,
