Wearing a Dress as a Skirt

When I first purchased the eyelet, cropped top featured in today’s post, I envisioned wearing it with a black and white, full skirt. I don’t own a skirt like that, though, so I decided to experiment by pairing the top with my Claude Brown dress, which just happens to have the perfect print and silhouette. To my delight, the shirt and dress paired well together, transforming the dress into an ideal skirt for the look.
