This week I wanted to show you some ways to wear a slip skirt like our Newell Slip Skirt by sharing my favorite styling ideas!
1. A BIG SWEATER

2. A LEATHER JACKET
This has to be my favorite match. Leather jackets are protective and give a rugged feel which balances the softness of a silk skirt. Note how a dark color for the top creates a harmonious shade with the jacket, which then gives room for a color contrast with the slip skirt. Tip: choosing a light grey or a shade of bronze for your silk will make them look metallic (silver, gold, copper).

How pretty is this? Here you are basically creating an effect in texture: by choosing a very similar shade for your other garments, you are highlighting the shiny ripples of the silk as opposed to the other textures. It really celebrates the richness of a color, and through plays of light puts the focus on the skirt!

Boots work in a way similar to the leather jacket: they give out a feeling of toughness, which is a very interesting counterpoint to the delicateness of the slip skirt. Cowboy boots, combat boots, tall 70s boots... all styles will work. For a great example of a lace slip worn with black combat boots, check out our previous blog post about sewing inspiration for the Newell Skirt.

So cute! This is such a life-friendly look. Don a pair of your favorite sneakers, pair with a cute bag, and voilà! The slip skirt takes care of elevating the look with a touch of feminine bling. Dressy can come from many different places.
I hope you are inspired! As always, seeing your Newell Skirts is very exciting - don’t forget to hashtag your makes with #NewellSlipSkirt and #OrangeLingerie so I can find them all!
