In their endless pursuit of new trends, fashion designers sometimes opt to combine two fashion favorites into one new hot thing for the 'nistas to enjoy. One such combo is the T-shirt skirt. If you come across one of these cute, casual skirts while shopping or decide to make one of your own, take a moment to consider what you'll wear with it first.
What Is a T-Shirt Skirt?
A T-shirt skirt is basically a T-shirt converted into a skirt that you can wear on your waist. The skirt material is cotton or a cotton-blend --- the same as an average tee. If the shirt has a print or design on the front, that is definitely a plus. Some manufacturers add other materials to the T-shirt skirt to take things up a notch. It's not a skirt you'd wear to a cocktail party, but you can definitely throw it on for a party at your friend's house on the weekend.
Simple Tank Top
Employ the K.I.S.S. theory (Keep it simple silly) when you're picking a top to wear with your T-shirt skirt. A tank top is all you need. Pick a tight cotton tank in a solid color that goes with your skirt (a white or black tank goes with just about anything). A spaghetti-strap top is fine too. Don't forget to add a drop necklace that falls to your waist for a cute finishing touch.
A T-shirt skirt is definitely a relaxed, "boho" (bohemian style) piece. So, you need an amazing boho bag to go along with the outfit. The more "hippy girl" you go with your bag, the better. For instance, you might wear a bag with long fringes flowing from the bottom that slings across your body, or a patchwork bag made from some of your favorite patterns.
Since a T-shirt skirt is very casual, wear a very casual pair of shoes. It is so casual that you can even get away with wearing (gasp!) sneakers. A pair of either solid-colored or funky tennis shoes is fine to wear with this skirt if you're just going out for walk in the mall or to a friend's house. Otherwise, try a pair of flat espadrille sandals that tie all the way up your leg.
