A jersey skirt is a versatile wardrobe staple that will add casual cool to any ensemble. Balance the form-fitting silhouette of jersey with easy oversized separates or structured pieces to make a subtle statement that works for weekends or less conservative office settings. This way, your jersey skirt will effortlessly transition for various occasions and your evolving style.

Office Chic

Juxtapose the softness of a jersey pencil or maxi skirt with a tailored blazer for an ensemble that is appropriate in creative or informal work environments. Choose a style that has minimal hardware or embellishments to keep it work-ready. Balance the structure of your blazer by rolling up the cuffs or pushing up the sleeves. Layer a billowy collarless blouse under your blazer and half-tuck into the waistband of your skirt. Stick with a neutral or pastel color palette -- think black, gray, navy or blush. A dove gray jersey skirt layered with an ivory blouse and a blush blazer creates a minimalist and polished head-to-toe look. Accessorize with an oversized watch, stud earrings or thin bangles. Finish with closed-toe ballet flats or nude heels.

Evening Chic

Transition the casual aspect of your jersey skirt for evening with chic separates, whether you're going to dinner with friends or a going out for a night on the town. Keep your silhouette streamlined with a fitted tank in a similar hue as your skirt for an edgy monochromatic look -- think a charcoal jersey miniskirt with a light gray tank. Opt for a tank with fun details or embellishments such as an asymmetrical hemline or beading. Add some attitude with a leather jacket and ankle strap stilettos. The bolder the accessories, the better. Try large hoop earrings, a statement necklace or multiple bangles.

Classroom Comfortable

A jersey skirt coupled with easy separates makes for an effortless ensemble that will comfortably and stylishly take you through a day full of classes. Tuck an oversized scoop or V-neck T-shirt into the waistband of your jersey skirt. If your jersey skirt is a neutral color like black or navy, pair with a tee that boasts a bold graphic or a bright color. If you have a printed or colorful jersey skirt, opt for a basic T-shirt in a neutral color and top it off with a cropped denim jacket. Slip a statement necklace on and ground the look with flat gladiator sandals or ankle booties.

Weekend Casual

Experiment with fabrics and layers to create a casual and cozy look worthy of the weekend. Balance the slim silhouette of your skirt with a silk camisole and an oversized cardigan. Make sure the hem of your cardigan doesn't fall below your hips if you're pairing it with a jersey maxi skirt, or it may overwhelm your frame. A chunky knit sweater adds texture and dimension against jersey and is a cozy alternative when temperatures drop. Whether your jersey skirt is a solid color or has a pattern, neutral hues like oatmeal or gray are complementary. Slip on oversized accessories -- think cocktail rings or chandelier earrings. Try platform sandals with a maxi jersey skirt or flat riding boots with shorter skirt styles.
