When I spotted this pink skirt at Zara, I thought "playful" and "stylish." The material is thick enough for winter and the cut and length makes it a great transition piece for Spring. Since the skirt is pink and playful, I knew that depending on how I styled it, it could look "girlish," not exactly the look I wanted.
To keep the look sophisticated I paired it with neutral pieces. The over-the-knee boots offsets the playful pink by giving the outfit an edge. In styling a pink skirt, I would stick with neutrals for the rest of your outfit and use jewelry, shoes, a bag etc. to give your outfit edgy sophistication.
