I ADORE the inspiration outfit pictured above on the left and thought it would be a fun challenge to create a similar look that's a little less dressy and budget friendly (in comparison to the inspiration). I chose the J.Crew silk-taffeta tulip skirt ($160.00) to mimic the silhouette of the inspiration look. I love the idea of pairing it with a GAP denim shirt ($59.50) to play against the formality of the silk. I paired a thick cuff ($14.00) which adds major impact for a minimal monetary commitment. Throw on an animal print scarf ($86.00), and you're done.
My favorite part of the look for less is that each item can be worn again in countless combinations! I wear my denim shirt with black leggings and boots all the time. I also love the idea of allowing the silk-taffeta skirt to take center stage in a dressy ensamble with killer accessories. The scarf can be paired with everything from cropped black pants to jeans on the weekend.
