Anyways, I recently put together some outfits with my handmade cherry skirt, and I'm really pleased with how they turned out. After I first made this skirt I thought it would be something with not many outfit options, but it turns out I was wrong. Sometimes it's good to be wrong ^__^
First up I tried the most un-obvious outfit I could think of; turning this quite sweet skirt a little classic. And I really like the result! Honestly I don't have much more to say on this outfit, except that it has really rekindled my love of the humble bustier. Without that, this outfit would not have the polish it does because it's really the bustier that makes it interesting.
Next I tried to coord it in the way I'm most likely to wear it, though to be completely honest I may not go with the socks in real life even though they do match quite nicely. This is a very simple outfit, which suits my tastes well, and it lets the skirt be the star of the show.
Lastly I wanted to try my hand at putting together a very typically sweet lolita outfit and I am in love with how it turned out! It's possibly too sweet for my tastes but I really want to try wearing this sometime. A black ribbon around the neck would help balance the colours a bit better and that's what I'll do if I ever do wear it. I really can't believe I came up with something this adorable! Maybe I sound overly excited but to me this is a quintessentially sweet look without relying on pastels and that makes me so pleased because I'm not really a pastel person but I do love sweet and now I've cracked the formula!
Making up these outfits was really satisfying and I was so pleased to find that I could work this skirt in multiple, and very different, ways. I think it's going to be a new contender for my favourite casual skirt when summer comes around again.
