Polka dot skirt four ways – styled by twitter friends

When I first thrifted the new polka dot skirt I showed last week, I put a picture on my twitter and asked people how they would style it – because while I am fearless with colour, patterns always cause me a wee bit of a challenge. So anyway, four lovely twitter friends responded, and I decided to put all the suggestions into action. Here’s the results!

I think you should wear it with white t bar heels, a white pussy bow blouse and a black blazer!

Admittedly, this outfit isn’t anything like that, since I don’t own any of the items she mentioned, but I decided to take from it a monochrome colour scheme.

I’ve been seeing bright yellow with dots and it makes my heart sing! How about a citron top, some black tights

I decided to add blue to the mix too!

polkadots and yellow and blue
*top – zara * necklace – gift * bag- gift * shoes – keds*

pair it with red!!

Here it is with lots of red and some added polka dot sockage!

With obnoxiously loud/bright colours, of course! (That’s how I style about 95% of everything I wear… Ha!)

Of course! I went for primary colours.

* top – vero moda * necklace – primark * satchel – cambridge satchel co * shoes – converse *

Haven’t they all done well? Love them all! Which one is your fave? Also, what do people think of this feature? I could make it semi-regular if people like it and are willing to make suggestions?

    If you owned some of the prescribed clothes, I would prefer the first idea, but from the pictures it is Misszuman's <3

    If you owned some of the suggested clothes, I would prefer the first idea by far. But from the pictures the one with red from Misszuman is my favourite!

  • SACRAMENTO 20 June 2011, 8:05 am

    I love them all, but the pairing with red is fabulous.

  • poet 20 June 2011, 8:45 am

    Hurra für die Tigerente! Alle drei Outfits sehen klasse aus – das mit den Pünktchen-Socken ist besonders lustig, dabei gleichzeitig besonders elegant wegen der Farbkombination! Bravo. 

  • Alex 20 June 2011, 10:07 am

    I love them all but the last one is brilliant – all those colours!  The blue tights are an amazing shade.

  • Leia 20 June 2011, 11:02 am

    I adore that skirt and all the ways you've worn it! I think my favorite is the citron/blue pairing.

  • Citizen Rosebud 20 June 2011, 12:15 pm

    First off, the idea is BRILLIANT as well as the charm of the skirt. And the wearer I might add.

    My favorite two are the first (all black and white, loving the white shoes with black tights look- I think its my fave) and the red paired with the polka dots. That said I favor those combos in my wardrobe, so maybe I am being biased. But I do love the citron yellow paired with the always optimistic polka dots, and since you followed my advice on that I should give it a little shout out- HELLO CITRON!

    I think this feature is great, very inspiring to see how people style so differently the same article of clothing. GREAT  post, Franca!

    I love this feature!  I honestly can't pick just one favorite though because you look fantastic in each outfit. What a fabulous skirt!

    Such a lovely idea to create different outfits from the suggestions Franca! Love what you did with mine – I have to say the skirt works beautifully with the 'monochrome' theme! 


  • Sally McGraw 20 June 2011, 4:08 pm

    I adore ALL of these. ALL! Well done, gals!

  • Bethanne 20 June 2011, 4:15 pm

    I love this feature! I don't have Twitter, though, so couldn't make suggestions…but if others are willing to make suggestions, I enjoy looking at the results!

  • A Thrifty Mrs 20 June 2011, 5:26 pm

    Such a lovely skirt and I love all of the stylings because it could take you anywhere. I love the last one the most.

  • Penny Dreadful 20 June 2011, 7:16 pm

    I love the top one and 3rd down, but they are all fab xx

  • Terri 20 June 2011, 9:33 pm

    Oh, I like number 4.  I've been gearing up for a month of primary colors in July…so that's how my brain has been thinking lately.

  • The Waves 21 June 2011, 1:24 am

    I love the yellow & blue combo, although all four are adorable! 🙂

  • Ceri 21 June 2011, 2:21 pm

    I love them all, I think the first is my favourite

  • Lorena 21 June 2011, 6:42 pm

    Well you and the tweeters did quite well !
    My fave is the first look 🙂

  • Veshoevius 21 June 2011, 7:20 pm

    What a cute skirt – they are all great outfits – but I did a double take to see you in monochrome! The yellow and red are my faves.

  • MissRockwell 21 June 2011, 10:21 pm

    I love this idea! How genius was it to ask your tweeps for their opinion!!


  • Stylishthought 23 June 2011, 3:47 am

    Oh dear, I need to get my hands on this skirt. Love it with the yellow! 

  • Helen 23 June 2011, 12:42 pm

    This is very similar to how I wear mine 🙂 I love it with bright yellow. 

  • anne m bray 23 June 2011, 4:53 pm

    My fave is red + black — the dot sox make it sing!
    I love this idea. Do you mind if I steal it? A good thing to do with the closet orphans.

  • For Those About To Shop 23 June 2011, 5:00 pm

    What a great idea for a post! I love red with black and white polka dots. Classic and feminine; always works. Especially red accessories: love!

  • Alexis of NorthOnHarper 23 June 2011, 5:18 pm

    I think the red is my favorite…. what a fun post.  Should for sure be a series!

  • Cate 25 June 2011, 10:34 pm

    'm loving the yellow and the red. obnoxious colours are always a go 🙂

  • mslejean 27 June 2011, 2:35 am

    Love this idea to ask your twitter friends to come up with ideas. All of them are great, by the way. Will look forward to this regular feature. Now following your blog 😉

  • Corinne Monique 27 June 2011, 5:19 pm

    The yellow is my fav, but I love them all!!!
