Fashion People Wear These Simple Tops With Skirts


If you’re someone who loves a skirt moment or swaps one in from time to time to replace jeans or trousers, you’re going to be quite intrigued at what’s coming your way. Yep, there’s a slew of outfit inspiration featuring skirts ahead. Specifically, I decided to focus on the simple tops the fashion crowd is pairing with a variety of skirt silhouettes right now. 

Given that basics are often the foundational elements in a wardrobe, it’s no surprise that style setters are reaching for elevated basics to create chic skirt ensembles. Furthermore, skirts are elevated, in general, so that perfect skirt silhouette doesn’t need much other than a simple top. Keep scrolling for all of that and more, complete with a smattering of product recommendations if you’re in the mood for a bit of shopping.
