Brown sheer skirt, part 3 en last

My brown sheer skirt gave me so many unexpected possibilities. Hope I don’t bore you as this is the third article on the subject. I wanted to show you a fourth as well, but decided against it. Would be too much of the same. LOL

It was such an eye-opener that I could come up with so many outfits just by setting my mind to it. Before I began this adventure and threw all sorts of tops on the bed, this skirt was hanging in my closet, not being worn for 2 years. Now I can wear it so many times.

The first time you have seen it with a brown top, brown boots and a statement neckace, and the second time with the same brown top but a different belt, smaller necklace and python shoes. (I am giving you the links in case you want to refresh your memory -haha- or have not seen them yet.)

This third time I am using a leopard top (seen before here), cream jumper (seen before here), again a different belt, different necklace and my beautiful blue earrings (seen at the bottom of this article).
I spotted similar earrings with a big oval red stone and a green drop… so nice…. I could not restrain myself and tried them on. Fortunately they did not suit my face. Too long. What a relieve, as I did not have the money for it. LOL

And below the last two creations:

  • with a blue cashmere jumper, small brown belt and large bracelet.
  • with the leopard top underneath a brown velvet jacket. (I need to come up with some more combinations with this jacket. Next challenge.)

Will you believe I once said I only wore a skirt and top in one combination as only one could be perfect?
I find all these combinations perfect.

    Hi GRetje! I adore that skirt! It is dreamy! And all the combinations are great- frankly, I can’t say I have a favourite outfit here. I used to have a skirt similar to that. Missed it so much when it was too loved to be used in public! It’s been about 4 years and I haven’t been able to replace it yet.

      Hi Katty. Missed you. I have a solution for a problem like yours. A seamstress who is specialised in remaking stuff. I had a perfect silk top/jacket which was torn. She made an exact replicate. Perhaps you can find one as well?

    I like much this skirt, its color, its design and how you feel to you. I just like the way, and the flight that has. I, like you, that combines with many things, and all of them are very good. I really like the first outfit, with white sweater is gorgeous. With the blue sweater, is also very nice. The least favorite is the animal print is a style that does not quite convince me much.

      Thank you Josep-Maria. The cream sweater is everybody’s favourite.

    I didn’t know your combination with the blue cashmere top with the very beautifull earrings. Love to see you in that colour, and the combination with brown or black is great.

    I agree that everything is great Greetje….but I’m hooked on that one with the turquoise top & the leopard printed top…..your hips rock btw!!!!

    • 26 January 2013 / 18:57

      Haha Rebecca, that is what good styling does for you…. I do not have hips. With the right skirt I can totally disguise this.

    My favourites are the combinations with the leo top and the brown velvet blazer.Oh and I love your super chic leo heels!!Love from Germany,Annette

    I love your brown skirt. So versatile. So pretty paired with the leopard top. I love it.

      And such a surprise. Hanging in my closet not being worn, because I had nothing to wear it with…..

    I like all your combinations too, but especially the wrap top. Also, seeing a bunch of different ways to see the same skirt worn with different tops is inspirational! Don’t stop! It’s not boring at all.

    • 27 January 2013 / 16:36

      Oh good. Glad I can return the favour as I get so much inspiration from other bloggers.

    Great skirt. And brown goes with so many colors. I love Brown and blue turquoise (like your sweater or earrings). Always a great mix!Cheers,Anne Touraine (Playing with Scarves)

      I agree, although I am not such a fan of blue turquoise, more of green turquoise. Blues are too cold for me.

    All great combinations, but here is another fan of the leopard top. So hip and fabulous. And that’s coming from someone who’s never really been into animal print!

  11. 27 January 2013 / 13:52

    Great outfits all of them! You’ve really come up with some lovely combinations here, Greetje:) And you should definitely wear more turquoise, it’s such a beautiful color for you!

    • 27 January 2013 / 17:38

      I disagree, the turquoise is really a bit too blue, too cold for me. I have styled it with a black skirt, small yellow belt and a yellow scarf. I think that looks better. Coming up soon.

    i love the brown paired with the leopard and brown and cream is always a classic winnergreat find in that skirtbrett

      Thanks Brett. I am quite pleased with myself. Never accomplished such a thing before.

      Thank you Sacramento. I do not have a preference, which is why I am happy to still be in an office. It gives me a chance to wear skirts and dresses. If I were to be at home all the time I would never dress up in a tight skirt suit with high heels. Why would I?
