Ways to Wear a Skater Dress 2

Second installment of my little skater dress series :) The looks today would be good for day to day wear. Tomorrows third and final part will feature the more dressed up going out skater dress look! If you missed part 1 from yesterday, here it is.

Dress: Topshop | Cardigan: Topshop via Mum! | Tights: Primark | Boots: Internacionale | Socks: River Island | Necklace: Primark | Bracelet: Unknown


Before I even start. I apologise for my FILTHY, scruffy boots. The camera decided to make them look even dirtier than they are in real life. #Ashamed

The theme I was going for with this outfit was a slouchy, layered look. Chucked on and mildly effortless whilst keeping cosy. Ideal for running errands, popping over to see somebody quickly etc. I love this burgundy knit (pinched from my mum's wardrobe!) but it's a little bit itchy and too short in the arms, I think? I don't know if it's meant to be like that or not. I'd probably stick a jacket on over this too for the ultimate layers because I get cold all the time too!

Dress: Topshop | Jacket: New Look | Tights: Primark | Necklace: Topshop Sale | Earrings: Topshop | Ring: eBay 

 I'm going label this one ~ all about the accessories ~ all the jewellery is very statement and probably a bit too over the top, haha. I'm also wearing my Topshop studded loafers, if you can imagine what that looks like! It's a pretty 'tough' outfit but I really like the mix of textures, I think the fur and leather give it a real edge, especially juxtaposed with the cross necklace. I'm not sure why I chose to wear my cat earrings (wish I could get a better picture of them, they're amazing!) thinking about it now, those little spiked earrings would've been better, oh well.

 Dress: Topshop | Top: New Look | Shoes: Topshop | Bracelet: Jack Wills | Ring: Accessorize

I realised all of my previous outfits were pretty dark, so I fancied something a little more girly and pretty! If I had a pink cardigan I'd wear it with this, but basic cardigans are something I lack in my wardrobe! I also did a pink lip which you can't see very well but the thought was there!

Like I did in my previous post, I've used the dress in a completely different way, this time as a skirt. I also think it would look really nice as a skirt with a big chunky cropped knitted over the top. Ohh, and if you hadn't already noticed/guessed I love anything with animals on :)

  2. I'm a fan of the first and last look! This is giving me a few ideas of how to wear my red skater dress. It hasn't been getting the attention it deserves. Also, I have those cat earrings! Aren't they just amazing? They baffle people everytime I wear them :)

    1. Thanks, I'm glad it helped! The cat earrings are just amazing - I originally went in to get the unicorn ones but being a cat lover had to go for the cats!
