Spot of Tea Skirt: 3 Ways

3 Ways To Wear It featuring The Spot Of Tea SkirtIt's time for round three of 3 Ways To Wear It with my upcoming collection, A Beautiful Mess for ModCloth. This time around we're styling the Spot Of Tea Skirt. This skirt is comfortable, super versatile and easy to wear. Special thanks to Kinsey for modeling this piece!

Look 1Look 1: For the first look I paired the skirt with platforms and a lightweight chambray top tied at the waist. This look is fun for shopping days or brunch at your favorite local spot!

Styling details: Top/Skirt/Shoes(similar)/Scarf

Look 2Look 2: Tying up a maxi skirt is a fun and trendy way to show off your boots! I would wear this look to a bonfire with friends on the weekend.

Styling details: Shirt/Skirt/Boots

Look 3Look 3: Maxi skirts are great because they can be worn as a skirt or a dress!  Here I paired this dress with a statement necklace and Swedish clogs. This look would be super cute for date night!

We'll be back soon with another 3 Ways To Wear It. xo. Elsie

  • Great ideas! Love the last one 🙂

    xo Jennifer

  • So cute! I am actually wearing a skirt as a shirt to school tomorrow, and I’ve done the skirt-as-a-dress thing before too! So awesome!

  • This skirt is just darling! I love the polka dots, and it’s perfect with chambray 🙂

  • I love how it works as a dress, I used t do that as a teen, and family thought I was nuts, but noone else could probably tell if it was a dress or a skirt anyways

  • Love it! It looks great as a dress too!

  • All these looks are so cute! Especially the 2nd one!
    xo Heather

  • That is a darling skirt! WOW…I want one!

    I’d either wear it the third way, as a dress, or with a simple long-sleeved fitted top in a bright color with some knee-high boots. I may be wrong, I’ve never tried it before, but walking around with a knot of fabric in the front seems like it would bother me.

  • I LOVE the second way: it has totally inspired me to re-try some of my maxi dresses/skirts that I thought I couldn’t wear in the winter with my boots!

  • I love the large polka dots, I love the colors and need this as a dress – yes, I used the word “love” quite a bit, but oh well 🙂
    Very cute

  • Aaah, I love it as a dress! This is my favorite piece from the collection 🙂 Can’t wait!

  • This might be my favorite skirt from your collection! The big print polka dots are just fabulous! So chic right now. Love the styling on this!
