Ways to style: knit midi skirt + lace blouse

white lace top white knit skirt spring outfit

Skirt: Kate Kasin sz xs (loose fit on me)
Blouse: Sézane Bianca lace blouse sz 0 / 32 (my review)
Sandals: Reformation sz 5
Earrings: Sézane c/o
Handbag: J.Crew c/o
Trench: A+F, old. Similar at Mango, Ted Baker

I shared this petite-friendly lace blouse in my Sézane review last month and have been enjoying it so much, I wanted to show more ways to style it! I wear mine just with a skin-toned bra underneath, but here are some neutral under tank options: Old Navy, H&M. I love that this blouse can elevate a simple casual outfit with denim, and also looks so elegant dressed up with a midi skirt or trousers (see all of these outfits below!).

1. Midi Skirt + Black Tank

Quick note on this ribbed midi skirt – the quality is nice with a sturdy weight and sturdy elastic waistband, and I especially like that it’s more of a straighter cut (rather than bodycon style, like most knit skirts are) so it doesn’t cling to my belly and bum. I wish they made XXS though since the XS is loose on me, but it does feel true to size for a standard XS.

2. Lace Top + Trousers

    Hi Jean!
    The top photo is SOOOOO elegant, love it!!! I love the blouse and the skirt is such a nice color and I do love the length. It looks great with that trench – you look amazing! The black tank is lovely too – something about the width of the straps that elevates it – I am on board! Thanks so much for the inspiration!!
