Cropped shirt with leather skirt under 75$

Skirt: H&M similar here; Shirt: Zara similar here; Heels: Zara, Bag: Asos

I had no idea how versatile this pleated faux leather skirt was when I purchased it last year on sale for 10€. I already had multiple use out of it since then and styled it more girly here, gothic here, girly edgy here and elegant with another leather skirt here. Doesn't matter if I styled it up or down, I always feel modern and slightly edgy. This time I opted for a cropped shirt that I got on summer sale from Zara as well. As I am not in my early 20's anymore, I am glad it had a black tank top integrated with it, so you can't see my stomach sticking out it, hehe. I even took my piercing out years ago because of that reason.

I kept  the black and white color scheme to reach a sophisticated yet polished look. For a more vintage vibe, I added this laced collar that I found in my mom's closet. The gold accents on those plateau pumps totally emphasize that effect. I have no cropped Shirts in my closet, I was super pumped by the different shape of it, the kimono arms totally nail it!
