Get back to “girlie” this spring with a fun, flirty skirt. Short and tight. Long and loose. With so many style options, you’re sure to find the skirt that perfect for you!
Bold, bright colors
Make a statement with one of spring’s hot bold colors. You can’t go wrong with solid orange, yellow, fuschia or — if you’re really bold — neon green. Solid-color skirts look good in any cut: from slender pencil skirts to flowing maxi skirts. Pair your bright skirt with a simple white blouse or a classic cotton tee for a gorgeous (but not overwhelming) burst of color. Accessorize with a colorblock handbag, some chunky jewelry and a neutral pair of heels or sandals.
A plethora of patterns
Prints and patterns are huge this season, and skirts are a great way to showcase them. Look for trendy floral prints, tribal-inspired patterns or classic nautical stripes. The rules are not as generous with patterned skirts as they are with solid colors. Before you settle on a pattern you love, take into consideration how it look on both your figure and the cut of the skirt.
Fresh and flirty at work
In most workplaces, mini and maxi skirts aren’t the best skirt option. But you don’t have to settle for a boring suit-type skirt. Pair a flirty knee-length skirt with a tailored blazer or wear a belted tunic over a slim column skirt for the perfect workplace look.
White is the ultimate warm-weather color, yet we tend to shy away from wearing it below the waist. Spring 2011 trends encourage us to wear not only white belts, white slacks and white shoes but white skirts as well. Rid yourself of Little House on the Prairie images and opt for a funky white skirt with layers, slits or embellishments. Partner your white skirt with a bold patterned top or colorful strappy shoes.
