Hi all,
I've fallen in love with the pictured skirt, but I can't decide what to wear it with as the matching vest top is sold out except in a 14, and I'm an 8.
What do you think would look nice with it? X

Oh, that's lovely! smile
I hope you get some advice, but I wouldn't have the faintest clue.

Thanks for your lovely message MissAdventure! It's from Peacocks if you're interested, it's a linen mix. X

A plain top picking out one of the colours-white/pink/green-if you can get the right shades. A top in the same pattern would be too much, in my opinion.

Totally agree with qq pick out one of the colours and go for a simple t shirt or fine knit

Thanks... I just couldn't think of anything, which is unusual for me as I have been told I have a good fashion eye. X

Plain colour white or same pink would look best

I am furious... they do a dress the same and it's beautiful and only in stock in a 14. X

A nice crisp white short sleeved shirt would be perfect.

I absolutely love it. A white top would look great but for the autumn months perhaps a top in one of the darker colours which look like green perhaps? Very smart and attractive.

I would pair it with a mossy green or soft pink silk or crepe shirt.Either French tucked or loose and if you want to leave it partly unbuttoned add in an ivory silk cami.
Nude shoes, either heels or ballerina flats

flyinghandbag I’ve actually got the top but I don’t think I’d wear it with the matching skirt. As suggested, a plain top, picking out one of the colours would look much nicer. Peacocks have some lovely things in at the moment. Good quality linen dresses in attractive designs for about £20.

I think I'm going to get a nice camisole in a pink or sage colour. X

Is it more of a peach?
Be careful because pinks are difficult to get right

I like that skirt.

This might ‘go’ with it, as the weather gets cooler - it’s from Peacocks too, so may well match colour wise.

It's a sort of dusky pink, I think. X

flyinghandbagisback Wed 16-Sep-20 22:59:09

Would this look nice, or a sage colour? X

flyinghandbagisback Wed 16-Sep-20 23:00:50

Or what about this? X

Callistemon Wed 16-Sep-20 23:05:09

Buy both!

Sage looks better

flyinghandbagisback Wed 16-Sep-20 23:11:20

I think I'll go with the sage. Thanks. X

That is a lovely skirt, and I am envious of your size eightness smile.

For autumn/winter, I think a plain round neck cardigan would look lovely, worn Nigella style, on its own, fitted, with the top couple of buttons left undone. Sage would look great, or possibly a rich camel.

It’s a summer skirt so I’m not sure you need to match it with wintery tops. White short sleeved shirt or t shirt gets my vote.
