Just because it’s cold and dreary outside doesn’t mean you have to put your bright colors in the back of your closet.  Pairing a bright skirt with black and gray tones down the look and keeps it from shouting “SPRING”!

Also, here’s a hint:  wearing a cotton pencil skirt with tights is not the best idea.  I had to purchase my very first slip to wear with this skirt and these tights to keep the skirt from riding up like crazy.

When you play around in your closet you’re bound to discover that the right undergarments are key to making certain pieces work together.  And in this case if a $9 slip from Target can help me keep wearing this skirt into the winter then I’m all for it.

    Today while I was walking to the bus stop I made Siri add ‘buy slip’ to my notes on my phone. That was before I read your post!

    I always hate having to go buy slips, but you nailed it, they’re pretty essential for skirts not riding up over the tights. (And they help get rid of the “skirt-leg cling” that happens in the winter.) The bright pink is gorgeous with the gray, it’s a really fun and grown-up way to wear bright pink. Your legs look so long with the dark tights and the booties!
