Judging from the "What are you wearing?" thread, a lot of PPKers are super stylish! Maybe we can share advice/ideas/etc. I'll go first: I have a dress that looks a lot like this one:

Mine is a rich plum colour. What should I pair with it?

I say petrol/turquoise/sea green coloured accessories and tights! I love combining purple & petrol green.

Awesome! I am out of tights, so I think I will look for some in turquoise. I've never heard it called petrol green before - very interesting!

My really fashion conscious friend calls it petrol. So I just went by her terms. :)

Olive green and plum is a favorite of mine. Or mustard/goldenrod!

Can I ask a Q?

Shorty-shorts over tights? Yay or tacky? I have bought some super rad tights/leggings that are to sheer on their own and I do not do skirts or dresses...

I vote yay. I saw a photo of someone wearing coral short-shorts with sheer black tights, and it looked awesome. Post pics!

It's not for me, but I see it on other people and it usually looks cute. I feel like you could definitely rock it.

I went to American Eagle yesterday and tried on shorts. Most shorts that are super short are low rise. I have narrow hips, even after going down to a 6 (I wear anything from a 8-10 normally) the shorts still fell off me. I walked away with these in a size 6 because they are elastic:

I am going to try on some Levi's soon. I have a thrifted pair of Levi 350 jeggings (but not jeggings because they are heavy duty with little stretch) that are a size 9 that just fit so perfect, skinny legs, lack of hips and all.

I saw a pair of Hudson Beetle Juice jeans I cried out for - the boyfriend always talks me out of my Beetle Juice clothing fantasy...:/

Those are cute!

So glad someone started this thread. I have so much stuff that makes me go, what do I do with this? Like my white eyelet skirt. Ive had it for years and I've only worn it a handful of times because I never know what to wear with it. And tucked in things look stupid on me.

I had a white eyelet skirt for a long time that I also never knew what to do with. Is yours pretty flowy? I usually do half-flowy, half-fitted. So for a flowy white skirt, I'd pair it with a fitted shirt, maybe a v-neck. Or a coloured tank with a cardigan.

That's cute. The only thing I can see that might not work is if it's super skimpy. Sometime cover ups/beach things are really thin and flimsy.

I have a long white eyelet skirt that is flowy; it has a cool swishy lining. I usually wear either a black cami or a slim fit bright turquoise v neck tee with it. That skirt is one of the things I'm excited to wear again if I lose weight.
