If you are going to wear something very feminine, you might want to pair it with something masculine for an interesting contrast. For example, my ridiculous, ruffly polka-dotted skirt with black boots and a denim jacket. I'm not always in the mood to do this, but if I want to add a little attitude to a dress or skirt I usually reach for my comfortable black boots and black tights.
This outfit works because my tights and boots are the same color. This makes my legs look longer, and provides a clean-looking foundation for the rest of my outfit to rest on. If my stockings were a different color it's possible the outfit would look a little messy. You don't always have to follow this rule, but it's a safe way to go if you want a fail-proof outfit.
The teal scarf adds a fun dash of color, draws attention to my face, and takes the outfit from good to great.
Have a fabulous day!
