The perfect pairings to maximize your wardrobe potential. 💋

NECK-TIE BLOUSE + SUEDE MINI

SHIRTDRESS + LEATHER MINI

For a totally original (and totally chic) look, take your cues from BAZAAR's Kerry Pieri and layer a leather skirt over a longline shirtdress with the hem peeking out below. The result is edgy and cool, and best of all, unexpected.

WHITE TEE + ELEGANT MAXI

True glamour is most effective when it's without too much fuss and effort. For how to execute the ultimate high-low mix, Jenna Lyons inspires best. A white tee is the quintessential basic, and the ideal piece for subduing a maxi skirt that might normally be reserved for evening affairs.

BODYSUIT + FITTED SKIRT

Kim Kardashian delivers minimalism with major sex appeal by keeping her silhouettes body-skimming and her color palettes muted. Recreate her sultry, streamlined aesthetic with a bodysuit tucked into a skirt that hugs the curves from high-waist to knee-length hem—both in subdued neutral hues, of course.

Bodysuit: Maison Margiela 4, $310;

Skirt: Brunello Cucinelli, $1,925

TURTLENECK + BUTTON-FRONT DENIM

The button-front denim mini is quite possibly the must-have skirt right now. BAZAAR's Joanna Hillman styles it to perfection with a knit turtleneck and classic leather belt. Wear with a cropped or sleeveless style now, then switch to a heavier-weight turtleneck and add a leather jacket and knee-high boots once the weather starts to cool.

OXFORD SHIRT + PENCIL SKIRT

Always the picture of chic simplicity and understated elegance, Ashley Olsen makes a case for the classics in a crisp white button-down and ladylike pencil skirt. The light color scheme keeps things feeling fresh and youthful, while the sleek tailoring maintains a professional sensibility. Definitely polish off with slingback pumps.

CROP TOP + MIDI SKIRT

Proportions are key when it comes to crop tops, so a mid-length skirt is the perfect complement. Hanneli Mustaparta masters this delicate balance with a cropped camisole and a high-waist midi. Bare midriff notwithstanding, her demure hemline and delicate accessories make the look feel entirely ladylike.

LACY BLOUSE + MOD MINI

It's a mod, mod world. Give the go-go look a go in something short-hemmed and A-lined, preferably in a groovy print or pattern. A lace blouse is a chic match for a mod mini, as Chiara Ferragni proves. Choose one with flouncy sleeves and a high neckline, as she does, and finish the look with (what else?) go-go boots.

BOXY TOP + PREPPY PLEATS

Kate Bosworth's boxy blouse and pleated skirt pairing is equal parts cool girl and schoolgirl. The slouchy shape offers a decidedly insouciant touch to her pleated skirt, making it feel more relaxed and effortless. Add masculine oxfords to bring it all together in a perfectly undone prep way.

CASUAL KNIT + FRINGE MINI

The fringe trend is going strong this season. And while suede fringe connotes a distinctly boho/western vibe, a textural mini with a swingy tasseled hem can feel surprisingly sophisticated—even casual. Make a fringe-trimmed skirt work for daytime and off-duty wear with an upscale sweatshirt, like Olivia Palermo (who we all know never looks anything less than completely put together).
