styled by our buying crew

As fashion lovers, we are all fans of classic and simple pieces. But as shopaholics, we love finding those key pieces that can be styled in more than one way (Hello, fashion budget!).

I knew we had one of those highly sought after pieces when this black and white maxi skirt (by up-and-coming label Dance and Marvel) came through our doors. Check out how our buying crew styled this skirt with looks that work for day, night, work and weekend!

Day: Styled by Samantha

black and white maxi skirt 042I paired the maxi skirt with bright cherry reds and soft pinks. For a daytime look, I thought it would be great to keep the black and white background neutral and add this red tank by Mink Pink I bought for $16.50. I added a red bucket purse by Coach and these pink sandals by Zara to complete the look.

Night: Styled by Solana

A forest green cropped tank by Fluxus, $16.50, and a cropped biker jacket by Widow finishes off the look.  I love the juxtaposition her buckled leather combat boots make against the femininity of the maxi skirt.

Work: Styled by Orion

black and white maxi skirt 009To get that office appropriate look, Orion gathered up pieces that mirrored the black and white found in the skirt. I especially love her vintage Vera Neumann black and white tulip printed tee. Her high-heeled oxfords are by Dries Van Noten and her wool blazer is vintage.

Weekend: Styled by Jason

Jason opted to pair the skirt with a classic denim jacket for the perfect weekend outfit. With a punch of color (thanks to the pumpkin swing tank) and those awesome black sandals, this look is begging for the weekend to arrive!

This black and white striped skirt can be found in select Crossroads stores for just $35.  Or shop the Crossroads Online Skirt Shop here.
