ROG Inspired and Outfit Lab

Last weekend I turned to ROG for inspiration for an outfit with a skirt. ROG kept showing me ideas with a wool caramel skirt and a leopard tube skirt. As it is hot and all wool is packed away, I went leopard. ROG also liked the cream and black pointy flats and cream KS clutch/crossbody bag.
I played with various tops but the same skirt and shoes. Here are some results and I'd like feedback as to what you like and what doesn't work. What tweeks would you suggest trying? The only toppers are vests and a silk shirt because it was so hot.
1: with black EF assymetrical linen sleeveless top.
2: with black V-neck EF silk sleeveless top
3: with silk sunflower tee ( black background with large flowers and leaves in shades of yellow and green.). Pattern mixing with leopard skirt.
4: another black silk EF sleeveless top, here shown alone. It is also part of 5-8.
5: more pattern mixing with Citron silk monkey shirt over black tank.
6: EF long stone assymetrical sleeveless shell over black top.
7: same as 6 with added EF long stone vest.
8: same as 4 with added black vest
9: shiny silk beige top

    My faves are #2, #7 and #8. I can't see the cowl-ing in #1; if I could I might like that one better. #2 feels like a classic silhouette, traditionally flattering. I like the drape and flow and vertical lines of the toppers in #7 and #8. I really struggle with pattern mixing, so those might be better than they are to my eye.

    Word Lily, I described the wrong top for #1 . After reading your comment I changed the description for 1. Thank you for expressing your favorites. It really helps me to be objective.

    My favorite of all is #6, followed by #7. I think the low contrast works really well with your coloring.
    I like the semi tucks of #1 and #9, it makes the outfit less classic.

    I love the pattern mix in No. 5. Verrrry sophisticated.

    I hereby crown you, Queen ROG.

    I love #2, #3, #8 and #9, Joy. All 11 out of 10. NICELY DONE. The flats are perfect with the outfits - very elegant - and so are the length of the tops. I find some of the other tops too long to wear with flats.

    I like 1, 6 and 7. The skirt is fitted and I find it looks better with a loose top. Asymmetry gives visual interest and an edge.

    Thank you, Celia, Nebraskim, Angie, and Irina. Angie, that is exactly the kind of information that I need. I've never been good at styling long tops.
