I bought this faux snakeskin skirt from Zara almost a year ago, and my first thought on how to style it was the look below; but I quickly found ALOT more ways as soon as I spent some time looking at what I had in my wardrobe. Since it’s such a neutral print and color scheme, other neutrals paired perfectly. Check it out!
THE ORIGINAL STYLING OF THE FAUX SNAKESKIN SKIRT
I mentioned this in my Style Inspiration Post; when I saw this skirt, I knew I had the other pieces to create a look I was drawn to on Pinterest. Classic black turtleneck and some kick ass boots. I loved it immediately!
THREE WAYS TO STYLE A FAUX SNAKESKIN SKIRT
Ok, so now for the OTHER ways I realized I could style this skirt with what was already in my closet and accessory wardrobe! So let’s get into it. And if you have wanted to incorporate a skirt that is NOT typical for you; but is an inspiration in your Method to Style evoluation, give these suggestions a try! Just to be fair, I actually styled this skirt 6 different ways, so this blog will focus on how I paired it with different types of WHITE or CREAM colored tops. So let’s get to it!
I bet you have a white button up in your closet! Some have a crisp structured version, some soft and flowy. Then again, a white tank? Everybody’s got one of those!

STRUCTURED WHITE BUTTON UP
FLOWY IVORY BLOUSE
BONUS LOOK! WITH A CHAMPAGNE COLORED BLOUSE
Remember, if heels are not your thing, you can easily create this look with pointed toe flats, open toed sandals, especially ones with an ankle strap or wedges! In cooler weather, a tan / neutral knee high boot would be FAB! Total transparency, I thought I had changed my shoe with these tops; but the pictures don’t lie! Sorry about that my friends, I try to show more variety than this, haha!
DETAILS AND FINISHING TOUCHES
What I encourage you to see is the details. How each blouse / top is different, from the sleeves to the collars. How I accessorized. The tank top has a rounded collar, so I paired some short necklaces to compliment it; but a long pendant one to elongate the look. Especially since I had a rounded toe sneaker for shoe. The blouses had V necks, so paired with the pointed toe shoe, that added height and trains the eye to follow the line from top to bottom. The slit is LONG, so while I wouldn’t recommend this AT ALL for office wear, you could still look super smart and polished for an upscale dinner or date night. Yes girl, be that Yummy Mommy and WOW your partner!
Finishing the look an set the vibe of your look. Causal and laid back is clearly what the tank, denim jacket (I had to use my denim shirt since, as you know by now I don’t have a jacket), straw fedora and sneakers. Chunky but casual accessories. Same layered chunky necklaces for the white button up and cream blouse, and no necklace for the champagne blouse! Tip on wearing your pieces differently, this last blouse had a built in scarf to be worn tied in a bow under my chin. I played around with it and came up with this, and love it way more! Don’t take your clothes so literally!! This is the stuff that makes your style undeniable, and as awesome as you are!
Happy Closet Shopping!
