Reader Request: Creating an Evening Look With a Black Skirt

I received a request from a style'n reader who asked me to help her style an outfit using this skirt from Anthropologie.  She also wants to pair the skirt with black sparkly tights.




For a glamorous evening look I recommend pairing the skirt with blouses that are satin or silk.  Also tops with billowy sleeves and ruffles are other ways to dress up the skirt.  Even incorporating sequins,  florals, animal prints, lace, and crochet would work well.

And since we are on the topic of skirts, I think having at least one basic yet high quality black skirt is a wardrobe essential. It is versatile and can be styled so many ways.  A black skirt can be worn with a button down shirt for work, casual T-shirts and flats on the weekends, and a blouse and heels in the evening.

Here are a few blouses that would work well with this skirt. 

Gap gathered top $59.50 and leopard cami $49.50









My husband and I went out to dinner Saturday night with some friends so I thought it would be fun to style a black skirt with some sparkly gold tights. Even though this skirt is different from the Anthropologie skirt,  I think both skirts can be styled with similar types of blouses, shoes, and accessories.   I decided to add a flowy black blouse to give the outfit a monochromatic look and I added color with the necklace, clutch, and shoes. Here's a couple of quick pictures we took before heading out to dinner.
