Just because it’s the end of the summer does not mean that it’s time to put the floral prints away. In fact, this floral box-pleat skirt was in the new arrivals section at Banana Republic. To me, that’s an indicator that the floral skirt is a great “wear now, wear later” piece. Any item that you can wear throughout multiple seasons (like the t-shirt dress I recently styled), is worth the investment. Of course, I did score the skirt for 40% off, so there’s that.

You may remember that I included this skirt in one of my Instagram flat-lay’s a couple of weeks ago. I took the photo the same day I bought it… because as a style blogger, that’s what I do when I buy new clothes. Doesn’t everyone do that? Maybe? Anyway, it’s quickly become one of my favourite skirts and I may even like it better than my button-front skirt.
How to wear this floral box-pleat skirt
While the weather is warm enough, I’m going to wear this skirt with a half-tucked tee or tank and cute sandals. A lot of my tops are long, so they look awkward if they’re worn un-tucked with a skirt. On the other hand, if you try to tuck a longer top into a skirt, it looks bulky. As far as I’m concerned, whoever came up with the idea for the “half-tuck” look is a genius. When it’s hot and sticky outside, that’s all you need to look stylish and put together.
Now that we’re starting to get some cooler mornings, it’s best to throw on a cargo jacket like I did here, or maybe a denim jacket. When the real fall weather arrives, I’ll switch out the peep toe sandals for ankle booties, add tights (even though I hate them), and finish the look off with a cozy cardigan.
