NYFW day two look: Seeing Blue with MILLY
The special NYFW and Fashion Month coverage continues and today, I'm excited to share with you this look, which features a gorgeous set from MILLY. This was Friday's look that I wore to the MILLY show, so let's dive in - how did the look come together? Should you look into these pieces? Read on!
But don't forget to help me out by reading below and liking and commenting your thoughts on this outfit at the bottom of this page!
NYFW Day 2
We begin this section with a "Did you Know?". Did you know nebulous blue was voted one of Fall’s top 10 colors for the season? Now, you do! The color is classic, elegant, chic, and casual all at the same time. We saw it on runways from Tibi to Prabal Gurung to Dior – making it a color trend for Fall. For that reason, I knew I wanted to go for a tonal blue look and I couldn’t think of a better way to rock it then in this matching top and skirt set from Milly and to the Milly Runway Show.
The fabric of the pieces are organza making them both delicate and dressier in nature. The length of the skirt fits mid calf (I am 5’1 so I did need to shorten the skirt a few inches to achieve the intended look - keep that in mind fellow short girls)!
How to Style MILLY Set
There are many ways of course to style these pieces and as they're a set, you can wear them together or as separates. If you opt for the latter, here are some ideas to style:
Wear the skirt and add a white button down (layer with a neutral colored sweater as fall approaches) and ankle bootie and you’re ready for work. While a bit on the fancier side, pleated skirt fits well in the work space. Simply wear it on a day that you have plans after work or just a day that you want to be a bit extra!
To date night
Pair the top with a great pair of denim and heel and you’re date night ready.
Pair the skirt with an oversized sweater and a pair of sneakers for a chic look.
