How to Accessorise a Print

I love that we have become more adventurous when it comes to dressing for an occasion, dresses are not the only outfit you'll see us ladies donning at a wedding for example. Jumpsuits, trouser suits and skirts are almost as popular a choice for dressy events. I feel that our budget is normally the driving factor for our outfit choice.....a dress tends to work out cheaper. Choosing a skirt means the added cost of purchasing a top. But now and then you'll come across a statement skirt that doesn't break the bank and that's exactly what I've found for you for today's blog post. 

The baroque print in this amazing skirt, which I found on ASOS, is stunning. What's really great about the print is the main colour is black making it easy to accessorise with items you have at home....we all have black shoes and bags.....so if you don't have a big budget for your outfit, you won't need to purchase accessories. White is also a key featured colour, which means you can create a strong summer look for now and then you can wear it again with dark accessories for an autumn or winter occasion. What's even better about the colour combo is the striking orange hue, I love it. Simply adding a pair of earrings or a clutch that has a nod to the orange hue will really make the colour pop in the skirt!
