When it comes to day time or work outfit, I always look for a ways to “jazz up” or “spice up” my look. I look for statement blouses with ruffles, frills or some kinds of details. And when it comes to skirts, I look for skirts with peek-a- boo details like the pleat on my skirt today.
For my look today, I paired my khaki and black skirt with a black high neck blouse and finished my look with a pair of cut out suede pumps. To keep me nice and warm, I wore my oversized collared long coat.
For the sake of the people who missed my basic colour theory featuring complimentary colours, I shared the details of my skin coloured tights made specifically for darker skin tone. I was also wearing those tights/ panty hose with this look.
The panty hose or tights by the way are from Pendeza. A lot of you have been sending me messages asking about them.
Fashion TIP today ::: Day to Night Look !
When taking your look from day to night, simple accessories and details can transition your day look into a night look. For example, the first time I wore this skirt for an evening outing, I paired it with a silk blouse. Silk is soft, feminine and romantic. I then accessorised with an oversized clutch and a pair of detailed sandals with chunky heels. Those simple pieces were my transitional pieces from day to night.
See photo below and full details of the look is on KHAKI & PLEAT
And for my pairing today which is a day time / work style, I paired it with a blouse that is “not loud” or “sexy”, one that only drew attention to my framed face. YEP, turtle neck is perfect for framing your face. See my post on 7 ways to frame or accentuate your face.
I am a believer of maximising and I love sharing different pairings with you to give you options. The last time I wore this skirt like I mentioned above, I wore it out in the evening and the picture below shows how I paired it.
Although the same colour palette, the style pieces I used were different.
I hope you like the pairing today and I hope you found my fashion TIP helpful. I would love to hear from you, let me know what you think. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask me below.

Wishing you a restful and fun weekend.
Much Love, Mojisola.
