A Fresh Effect

This knit skirt is working for me on several levels. First, it's looser fit allows for a "customized" placement on the waist. I tried it over the bump, under the bump, then settled for mid-bump, which makes it into a midi skirt. Second, the below-the-knee hem has a fun vintage quality to it, while the pattern (also on the retro side) is both geometric, and leaf-inspired--perfect for a summer! I went back and forth on the type of top to pair with this vintage-esque skirt, and opted for an easy, bright tee, that thanks to some master class tucking and this white blazer, came off fresh and fun, as opposed to sloppy.
It's always a bit tricky with loose summer skirts and t-shirt combos. Where both hit on the midsection, and the right kind of tuck are key in created a energetic vs. "schlubby" silhouette.
