Daytime to Playtime: One Skirt Two Ways

Guest Blogger - April Clark, Fashion Aficionado, Beauty, Lifestyle Blogger ​​​​​​​

Just in time for spring, the new Eva Mendes Collection at New York & Company has arrived!  It’s full of bold designs with ultra-feminine style.  Here’s how to style the Gianna pleated skirt, from Daytime to Playtime!

Daytime

This gorgeous knife pleated skirt is great for work.  Pair it with an oxford shirt, plain tee with a sweater or for a touch of nostalgia add a sheer bow blouse to give it a classic 1970s vibe.  Here, the Gianna pleated skirt from New York and Company, is paired with a sleeveless turtleneck sweater and pastel waist coat all from the Eva Mendes collection.  The new spring collection has nice transition pieces for layering until it warms up later in the season.  Many of the day time career pieces can easily be transitioned to casual activities for the weekend.  With stylish and affordable pieces in the collection it is easy to make your wardrobe do double duty.

Playtime

The juxtaposition of a chiffon pleated skirt and casual pieces help make your weekend wardrobe a little more fashionable.  A simple swap of top to a graphic       t-shirt, sweatshirt or denim jacket is a perfect playtime outfit.  I paired the filly skirt with a comfortable casual puff sleeve V-neck top from the 7th Avenue collection also at New York and Company and a pair of metallic converse sneakers.
