A girl can never have too many skirts. They are so versatile and can express any statement with a roar or simplistic subtlety. Finding the right skirt will depend on the occasion, your body type and the overall look you are trying to achieve. Anything vintage is the rave right now. Why? Because bringing back timeless pieces and adding a contemporary spin shows your appreciation for what once was, while bridging the gap between what is today.
The right skirt will make you feel like a million bucks while showing off your best attributes. Whether it’s your waistline, hips, full bottom or long legs invest in a couple of vintage skirts that will have all eyes on you. If you opt to go more classic, A-line prints will be a great alternative providing intricate designs and splashes of color.
Skirt styles are endless. Pleated, penciled, flared, trumpet and A-line are some of the popular choices that have become staples in the ensembles of those who rock and shock without remorse.
Black and white checkerboard, polka dots, hounds tooth and striped prints will continue to be major with fall just around the corner. If you haven’t already, you must pick up a few of these pieces because you can have so much fun and black and white is never wrong with any color scheme. In fact, people will be amazed at your ability to make such a bold contrast.
Floral and motif prints will also make huge impressions this season. Everyone should have a florals in their wardrobe. If you’re not a big floral person, I urge you to consider cultural prints. Asian, Spanish and African prints will forever be hot from the runways to the streets.
