10 Shirt-and-Skirt Pairings for a Quick, Stylish Outfit

One of our most reliable approaches to crafting a spot-on look is planning it out ahead of time. Whether it's for a job interview, date night, or simply a day when you want to feel particularly confident, taking the time to play around with your wardrobe pays off. That being said, anyone who's done this probably knows firsthand that it's unrealistic to expect to have that kind of time every single day—we're busy! The solution? Keeping a few strong combinations in your back pocket at all times. A chunky knit layered over a slip dress, a statement shirt with trousers, or the topic of today's post: a shirt and skirt.

We tend to forget how impactful a great skirt can be and when teamed with a shirt; the pairing instantly elevates your look. The best part about this dynamic duo is that it works across the board. Office, event, weekend getaway—the versatility is glorious, the options endless. To get you started, we culled 10 shirt-and-skirt pairings to shop for fall. Scroll down to shop.
