What I Wore: Down to Earth


Earthy hues are a great way to incorporate versatility into your wardrobe as they’re so easy to mix and match with various colours. You can use them as a base from which to build a look or layer them for a more tonal ensemble. I opted for for the latter with this particular look by Polo Ralph Lauren. This pleated skirt is such a great statement piece, yet it’s also the kind of style that can easily be built upon. You could pair a number of different things with a pleated skirt but in this instance, I went for a crisp button down. It adds some structure to help balance the more feminine silhouette of the skirt while also adding an element of polish.

Accessorising this look required some piecing together of other tonal elements, such as the bag and heels. The bag is actually a crossbody style but I decided to just tuck the strap in and carry it as a clutch. It’s always fun to experiment with changing up the style of a particular item, and in this instance simply reworking the strap helped completely change the vibe of the bag. I added a belt to achieve a more cinched in silhouette, which I’ve found is always one way to guarantee a more flattering finish. Preppy with a smattering of softer, feminine pieces, this earthy look has just the right kind of balance that will suit myriad occasions.
