The ‘button up + mini skirt’ outfit combo is hands down one of my favorite preppy outfit matches. When I’m late for work or I can’t think of anything to wear, I’ll usually go for either this look or the ‘jeans + tee + blazer’ combo. It’s a great way to look put together, without looking like you’re trying too hard.
Although I do find that this combo can get bland and boring. So to keep it interesting, I make sure to pair the outfit with a statement accessory (like my Valentino cross-body). Or, another way to kick it up a notch is by choosing bright contrasting colors, like what I’ve done here.
Outfit Combo: short sleeve button-up shirt from American Apparel, skirt from Forever 21 (find similar here and here), thrifted belt (find similar here and here), flats from Michael Kors (find similar here and here).
