Styling Dorothy Perkins Skirts

This week I decided to share with you all, how to style up a range of skirts I like to wear. I believe such skirts are timeless items to invest in, no matter the season. There are so many places to purchase such skirts yet most of the skirts below are from Dorothy Perkins (unless otherwise stated). 

For daily style inspirations please follow me on Instagram: @setapartstyle :D

It's nice to be a respectable lady. Knowing God - discovering God - yielding to God - seeing your value & worth through His eyes - being more secure through His word - loving yourself - letting Him cleanse you from all the 'little things' that don't seem like a big deal, but are hindering you & me from being that blameless bride. 

Dressing with God in mind & heart is so beautiful. He is our focus, desire & ultimate satisfaction. ~ Even if this isn't what our hearts are saying yet...Let us declare it to Him, pray this & meditate on it ( Mark 12:30) until it is our reality. #ByFaith

This style of skirt (above) is called a tube skirt. I like the length of such skirts, yet they can be extremely fitted and bring attention to curves and bums. 

How to get around that for most body shapes, is to purchase in the next size up & to also have a flowy top which sits OVER the skirt. Tucking a top inside such a skirt will definitely look tense, no matter how small you are. So a cami like this, OVER the skirt will make a difference, & keep your assets exclusive.

Style Tip ~ Tuck in a loose blouse, even if it's peplum style. With the full skirt on top, it will be hidden & if you are a slim lady, it really helps the skirt to sit right.

This specific skirt is not from DP but there is one very similar one located there which is captured above. Black midi skirts like this are a must have for me, because they really help to restyle those immodest items and also to dress up any all black look.

It has been a while since I posted some style ideas on my blog, so I thought I would share some with you. Especially as Summer is here and this is a time when many ladies find it difficult to know how to dress respectably in the heat. In London it's not very hot at all, so a good blazer will definitely help to support any look. 

I have always had such a big appreciation for midi skirts since coming to Christ and desiring to cover up more, as I dress. I really like dresses and skirts from the 1950's era, so vintage cuts and styles ALWAYS seem to catch my eye. I use these vintage inspired skirts to style around so many of my looks, because it is such an investment. 

 I hope the looks above inspire you to get creative with how to modernise vintage items, for various occasions. See you at my next post. 

With love and style,
