Kamilia Shop Melbourne - Vintage Polka

Saturday, April 4, 2015

There is something so feminine and perfect about a 1950's style skirt. It's silhouette and structure is lovely on the female form and looks good on all body shapes. Add to that a gorgeous luxurious shade, scatter a few polka dots and you pretty much have the perfect skirt.

This Kamilia polka maxi skirt is epitome of a 50's classic. White polka dots are set upon a background of royal blue to add that extra pop and it's volume is created by pleating a vast quantity of fabric tucked neatly into a wide waist band. 

This skirt can be worn either with a cute sweater tucked in (or out) or a crisp white or denim shirt to add a casual feel to its extravagant look. Whichever way you decide to style this beauty, it will surely pull together in the most elegant way. 

I decided to pair the blue skirt with a thick grey knit cotton sweater that I tucked in (but I also included a picture of the sweater left out). To add some more colour I styled my favourite Turkish silk shawl in a very simple way, the short end to cover the chest area and the long side wrapped around my neck (the wind and I had some issues getting along that day so my hijab was literally all over the place!) 

This is how the skirt looks with a sweater left out rather then tucked in. I think it still looks cute and a bit more casual in this style.

I kept accessories to a minimum with a gold cuff, and a lovely little white leather sling bag.
