From Polo Shirt to Stylish Skirt

By  | 

Every once in a while I get this tired feeling for seeing the same assortment of clothes that I have from my drawers and cabinet. I’m sure all of you have felt the same at one point too. It’s like you do have clothes to choose from, yet there is still no clothes you can wear. So as always, I tried thinking out of the box and mixed and match my clothes. This time, I tried wearing a long sleeve polo shirt —as a skirt! Yep. Mind you, it turned out looking neat and stylish. I’m not just saying that to exaggerate but just stating the obvious. In my opinion, it looked really stylish as the cuffs on the sleeves emphasized the big bow [ribbon] that wrapped the shirt in my waist. Okay, to make it easier check the photos below to see it for yourself…

So what do you think? Looks neat right? If you have a long sleeve shirt, give it a try and see for yourself. If you want me to share a step by step guide on how to wear a polo shirt to a skirt, feel free to let me know and I’ll make one. :] I’d prolly try to come up with a look for the long sleeve as an actual long sleeve soon. Also, the idea of wearing socks in high heels came from japanese high school girls and F21 models. I’ve been seeing a lot of those and thought I’d give it a try myself. Til’ next xox.

    Omg, I just love your outfit! It looks really lovely! I love it how you’ve combined it 🙂

    It sure is worth to mix things together. I also hate it to wear the same things the whole time 8D So I recently got some new clothes :3

    Love this outfit! It’s so chic and stylish and no one would’ve guessed that your skirt is actually a long-sleeved shirt! I didn’t notice it until I read the title and actual content.. 🙂

    I like socks with pumps too. It’s so cute! I haven’t tried it myself though since I don’t have a lot of pumps yet (I’m hoping to do an after-Christmas shoe shopping soon).. ^^

    Thank you so much! I actually fooled a few friends too thinking it is an actual skirt. 😀

    I am loving F-21’s looks and I am looking forward to doing more looks inspired by them and of course more shoe shopping too. 😛
