What does minimalism look like for a professional working woman? Part Seven – 9 Actual Outfits (MM Lafleur Soho Draped Skirt)

If you want to know, here are  some details on the capsule pieces I chose and my rationale for them.

Previous:

All of these looks below are based around one piece in the original capsule list with 18 pieces!

….& 3 pairs of shoes

…featuring this MM Lafleur Soho Skirt:

 

Shown below: 12 looks

But I could have added another 8 more looks with some simple tops mixed with toppers or other styles you’ve seen earlier:


Outfit 1 Outfit 2 Outfit 3

Outfit 4 Outfit 5 Outfit 6

Outfit 7 Outfit 8 Outfit 9

Belts can help block off an outfit

The outfit was okay before, but it looked very unfinished, until an obi belt was able to tie in the yellow & grey from the top, to tie it all together.

Use the dress as a top and as a topper

Have the skirt peek out from underneath the dress, as well as a top (button it up to the waist), and then use the belt to ground it and nip in the waist.

Try colour-blocking with a topper

The outfit (for me) looks great with the magenta skirt peeking out, but you can colour-block with another colour on top as well, to add even more of a pop.

Use a belt to add colour to a more neutral look

A belt can add interest to something.

Belt the topper!

It looked great open with pants, but looks much better belted when it is a skirt.

For reference here is that look with the same dress as a topper, and it looks much better open rather than belted:

Liked this? Let me know! I can do more if there is an interest.

P.S. All of my other capsule wardrobes (but none with real-life shots like this yet), are here.

I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K.

    I really love the looks where you are wearing the two skirts – but don’t they feel bulky?

      I thought so too, but not at all! The bottom skirt is silky and thick, and the top is slimmer but tighter, and the two work together perfectly. It just feels like a really luxurious skirt.
