I bought an animal print skirt in black & white with a touch of grey because it's a flattering style for me (knee length & A-line). Now I'm not sure what to wear with it. I don't wear black or bright white. Ideas?

Red goes very nicely with black & white.

Thank you. I love red--need more of it. Tried on a fuschia sweater with the skirt and my husband hated it (but then he doesn't like the skirt print either)

I find black/white/red combos too cliche, reminds me of Minnie Mouse. But just about any solid colored top would work, but try to stick with a cool color if the skirt is cool or warm color if its a warmer gray.

Pick a grey in the same tone it will look really nice.

Any links to pics of things like it?

Just some thoughts: (have no idea of the pattern or what you prefer)

I love red, but I do agree about the clicheness. Depending on the shade of grey, a dusty pink or Tiffany blue might be nice.

Minnie Mouse, eh? (Good point) But she is SO cute! ;-)

Hadn't thought about *dusty* pink--will think about it! What shade is Tiffany blue?
