How to style it: Long Vintage Skirt

Quite often I'm drawn to the print of a pretty vintage skirt (The kind with the elastic waist), but I wanted more options than just pairing it with a simple top. Turns out these lightweight skirts are extremely versatile. They work well as dresses, tops, and skirts! All while remaining quite comfortable.

Worn as a dress and paired with a fitted vest. I love this outfit, it was so comfortable, and the fitted vest held the skirt right in place.

Worn as a pop of color under a basic jersey dress. Layering is always big in the fall and I can see myself doing this a lot, it adds a nice touch of color and print to an outfit without going overboard.

This is more of an evening out look. The skirt worked well as a strapless top and I layered a silk skirt over it. Silver accessories dressed the look up a bit.

Which one is your favorite? Any other ideas for how to style these types of skirts?
