Every once in a while someone will ask me: What is your favourite thing in the store?
How could I begin to answer that? I love cloaks because I feel like they transport me to a fantasy adventure whenever I put one on. I love corsets because I become a sexy femme fatal when I lace one up. And I love kilts because really is there anything sexier than a man in a kilt? How could I possibly choose just one thing as a favourite?
If you rephrase that question and ask what I have gotten the most wear out of then hands down, no contest, the answer is the kilt pin skirt. Seriously, I have half a dozen different colours of kilt pin skirts and I love them so much. You may be wondering how I keep my outfits so fresh and interesting if I just keep buying multiples of the same item. Fear not, I have some suggestions to give your kilt pin skirt some different looks.
Kilt Pin Skirt + Nerdy Graphic Tee = Match Made in Heaven
My absolutely favourite thing to wear with my kilt pin skirt is a nerdy tee shirt, some stripey tights and doc marten boots. It looks super cute together and lets you show your personality. As an added bonus, your nerdy shirt can act as a filter to decide who you want to talk to. In other words, if you know what “the angels have the phone box” means or why bowties are cool then we’ll probably have lots to talk about.
Kilt Skirt + Corset = Awesome Sexy Power Outfit
If I’m going out somewhere fancy and I want to step up my game then I will go for a kilt pin skirt with a corset. I love the sophistication of the corset with the flirty kilt pin skirt. You can feel sassy and stylish without being too exposed. If you really want to step up your game add some fishnet stockings and a pair of boots!
Kilt Skirt + Underbust Holster Vest = Magic
So if you haven’t tried one of our underbust holster vests then you should get your butt down here and try one on. They are amazing and awesome and you will love it. Do you know what goes great with one? A Kilt Pin Skirt! The kilt pin skirt is basic enough that it will let a cool piece like the underbust holster vest shine. If you want to kick it up add some cool gloves and a choker.
