Casual Kilt 2

I couldn’t just leave this part of the site with only one casual Simple Kilt article – there’s so much Kirina has that goes with it! Hopefully, I won’t repeat outfits that I’ve already included around the site ^_^

With these outfits, I tried to stay with predominately vendor bought armor, low level gray armor items, or different starter gear shirts. Even though the level requirements for some of these outfits are low, they do not sacrifice style for your character.

The Squire’s Shirt is the starter shirt for Dwarf paladins. Its blue accents match the Simple Kilt perfectly.

Low level tailors can sew the Brown Linen Vest. What this vest lacks in “fanciness” and uniqueness, it makes up with good ‘ol common versatility.

This outfit is reminiscent of the Twill Vest Simple Kilt outfit from the first article. The Brown Linen Vest can also be paired up with the Golden Filigreed Doublet for an even better, lower level match.

This other style of the Squire’s Shirt is a part of the Human paladin starter set, but, it can also be purchased from Thomas Yance in Old Hillsbrad Foothills. Even though it will look great on its own paired with the Simple Kilt, layering it under a vest like the Brown Linen Vest gives the whole outfit more dimension.

The Neophyte’s Shirt is the starter shirt for all priests, and, like the previous shirt, it can also be bought from Thomas Yance.

All but one of these outfits before used the Worn Leather Belt, and all used the Worn Leather Bracers. Even though they match just fine with the outfits, they can always be changed. There aren’t many options for a barely level 10 character, so, I had to work with what I had available for Charletta (yeah, that’s my Human’s name ^_^).

I’m fond of purple and gold color combinations myself, and, I wanted to recapture the look of a couple of Kamalia’s Filigreed Outfits for the Simple Kilt. Here is one that I came up with…it’s pretty simple:

The dark purple color of the Darkmoon Vest layers wonderfully over the Rich Purple Shirt. While the shirt will look just fine without the vest, having the layering effect allows only the top gold collar of the shirt to show – which is not echoed in color until the cuffs of the shirt and the belt.

I love Kirina’s Sutarn’s Ring. It is hard to come by, but, I’ve been looking for it for a future Summer Outfit article. It’s also one of the few gold belts that is not mail or plate armor. There are simple, blue accents on the belt that blend in almost perfectly with the kilt; thus, creating the illusion that it is open weave.

This is not a purple/gold outfit, but, it is a great summer type outfit to consider. Another great shirt for this outfit could be the Golden Filigreed Shirt.

A set or two of world-drop grays is a must have for any player. They are versatile amongst themselves, or when paired up with other crafted or vendor bought armor.

The Brocade Vest on its own looks great with the Simple Kilt, but, pairing it up with the Squire’s Shirt adds that last blue armband that goes great with the kilt, and the correlating Brocade Gloves. The other pieces of this outfit can be substituted for something else; the Brocade Belt wouldn’t look half bad instead of the Blackened Defias Belt.

Another gray armor item is the Canvas Vest.

The Canvas Vest shares the same style as the aforementioned Brocade Vest, but is in a green/brown color combination. The Neophyte’s Shirt matches the green of the vest perfectly, and is a great shirt to layer underneath it.

Other shirts to consider layering underneath the Canvas Vest are the Formal White Shirt (pictured), or even the Common Brown Shirt

If you don’t own a pair of Riding Gloves (Alliance quest reward), I suggest getting the Gossamer Gloves. They are almost identical to each other, and both are also very versatile in brown-toned clothing, without sacrificing the stylish cuffs of longer sleeved shirts or chest-pieces.

Even though it’s barely a tunic, I’ve always been fond of the scanty Calico Tunic. However, I find it hard to find shirts that compliment it…in my opinion, seems like it’s just the Calico Tunic, or nothing! I paired the tunic with the High Councillor’s Sash to bring out purple/blue tones of the tunic, and to also use a different belt, LoL.

Lots of great armor sets for all levels can be bought from vendors – and are reasonably priced. These items are perfect for their availability and versatility. One of my favorite sets is the Reinforced Leather set.

Ladies, if you do not want the “side boob” effect for your character with just wearing the Reinforced Leather Vest, there are plenty of shirts to layer underneath it. I like the way the Golden Filigreed Doublet blends together the light and dark brown colors while keeping Kirina covered; however, any ‘ol Common Brown Shirt will give the same effect (for those that wouldn’t want to spend 50 gold on a shirt ^_^).

Sleeveless shirts go great with this vest, as well. I used Kirina’s Bold Yellow Shirt in the above outfit, but, the short sleeved Golden Filigreed Shirt will look fabulous, too.

Probably not one of the easier outfits to put together, being that the Glyphed Breastplate is a random world drop, but, I haven’t made an outfit with it yet, and I love the style, so, here it is, LoL!

Both of these breastplates look great with the Simple Kilt and the Golden Filigreed Doublet – which I have used to exhaustion in this article already ^_^

The Simple Kilt goes great with various mail and plate chest-pieces.

The Squire’s Shirt pairs nicely underneath the Tarnished Plate Chestpiece, while the straps of the chest-piece blends in perfectly with the Geomancer’s Cord – the metal medallions on the belt accenting the metal in the chest-piece.

The Cerulean Filigreed Doublet adds more formality and fanciness to this outfit, highlighted by the beautiful design of the blue Defender Girdle.

Kirina missed out on these two gems, the The Wanderer’s Cover and the Mordant’s Travel Tunic, while questing in Dustwallow Marsh when leveling way back in the day. Luckily, her twin sister Merlaina was able to get them. I paired them up with gold mail armor for the second purple/gold combo for the Simple Kilt.

Please note that now, after The Shattering, these two quest rewards have different armor skin models and are not as unique as pictured T-T .

I like blue tones on Merlaina, maybe because of her icy blue eyes. The Nexus-Strider Breastplate is a rich combination of chain mail and what looks like, to me, blue velvet. This chest-piece on its own looks great with the Simple Kilt, but adding the Squire’s Shirt ties the outfit together with the gloves and belt (both completely optional).

This next outfit is one of my favorites for Merlaina

The Defender Tunic’s “scales” fade into the shirt beautifully, especially in the front with the shirts silver designs. The girdle only accentuates this look, and ties the casual Simple Kilt into something much more elegant.

The Amber Filigreed Doublet matches the rust color of the Raider’s Chestpiece perfectly, and, almost makes both pieces look like a single piece of armor. The blue cuffs of the shirt tie the red/orange top together with the Simple Kilt, while the correlating belt keeps everything together.

So, there you have it. There’s a lot of outfits to be had with the Simple Kilt. I’m sure some time down the road, I’ll roll out with a “Casual Kilt 3: The Never-Ending Love Story”….but that will be much later. ^_^
