The next subject of my capsule creation is full silk floral J Crew skirt that Suz has, too. It is a little difficult to tell the background color - it looks either black or ink depending on the light, but I think it is black. It goes well with both black and dark navy, as well as other neutrals such as white and denim. It also goes well with various colors from the print: light and medium blues, light cool pink, teal and olive. So it is not the color of the tops that presents the outfit challenge, but the shape, as it tends to be with most full skirts. The toppers are easy - cropped denim jackets/vests or motos, which I have plenty of so I have not included them in the outfit photos in order to focus on the tops. I am also wearing the same black ankle-strap wedges in all these photos for simplicity, though I could go for different shoes to achieve different vibes, but again wanted to focus on tops.
For the firsts session I have focused on inspiration from two of Angie's ensembles. The first 5 outfits are inspired by Ensemble: Denim Jacket Burberry Style, where Angie recommended pairing skirts with buttoned up denim jackets worn as tops. I have slightly extended it to included buttoned and zipped up vests, too. The next 10 outfits are inspired by Ensemble: Modern Midi where the idea was to pair a full midi skirt with tucked-in denim shirt (#6-7), roomy crop top (#8-10) and fluid fine gauge welted sweater with scrunched sleeves (#11-15).
As in previous capsule postings, I am interested to hear which outfits are your favorites, as well as the ones you think don't work at all.

The outfits:

  1. Buttoned cropped dark denim jacket
  2. Buttoned cropped white denim jacket
  3. Buttoned cropped light denim vest
  4. Zipped cropped black denim moto vest
  5. Zipped cropped black leather moto vest
  6. Tucked-in denim shirt
  7. Tucked-in sleeveless chambray shirt
  8. Cropped boxy white eyelet shell
  9. Cropped boxy white short-sleeved shirt
  10. Cropped boxy black ponte short-sleeved top
  11. Fluid welted blush sweater with scrunched sleeves
  12. Fluid welted white lace sweater with short sleeves
  13. Fluid welted navy/teal sweater with short sleeves
