Shaken, Not Stirred: Summer Skirts

Most Lilly-lovers will attest to a love for preppy fashion. I know I have an affinity for it! Preppy style has it's classic color combinations and it's timeless rules. But let's re-cap Lilly Pulitzer's story. I'm gonna have to say breaking the rules, has risk but yields great reward.

This summer, I want to challenge you to break some rules with some of the FAB skirts from the summer line!

The Roslyn is such a great fit. It's usually seen like a polo, or solid v-neck tee but I love the idea of juxtaposing the tradition skirt with a modern top. Go for the Wynne top! Pick a color that isn't dominating, so it draws something new from the print
This Roslyn skirt is PERFECT for the Fourth of July...a must-have!!

The Avery is just made to match your favorite espadrilles. Seriously, I love this skirt. It looks fabulous on everyone! Since it has a paper bag waist-cinching, it's best to keep your more fitted. If it's not completely sweltering outside, try a cute quarter-sleeved tshirt. Anything in the cotton slub material is perfect!

The Jarvey skort rightfully popular. It's short and flirty and when it's hot, it's perfect with the Heather tank. With this skirt, there's some rules you CAN NOT break.

Because of the short hemline, keep your sandals flat. Espadrilles, wedges and pumps are a no-no! Plunging necklines are also taboo.
Plunging necklaces and colorful bangles, however, are a MUST. With the Jarvey, go the extra mile in accessories.

Also, don't be afraid to pair a striped or gingham shirt with a printed skirt or skort. As long as the colors coordinate and you don't clutter the look with too much jewelry, this look is daring, but darling! Example: Try the Jonni gingham short sleeve shirt (shown at the very top with white pants) with the "Classic White Had Me a Blast" Jarvey. Keep shoes neutral, jewelry minimal and throw a solid colored sweater over your shoulders in case you get chilly!
