3 Skirt Trends and How to Wear Them

The midi, mini and the maxi! Skirt lengths vary by personal style and this spring anything goes. Each hem length holds its own, when it comes to seasonal trends. If you want new ways to style your favorite type of skirt you’ll want to check out this inspiration from the spring 2014 collections and the tips on how to wear each one.

SkirtTrend-MidiCara

For the workday: Try a midi! Just because the skirt is longer doesn’t mean it has to be stuffy or ultra-conservative. The length allows you to play with color and pattern like this Burberry lace number.

SkirtTrend-MiniPeterSom

On the weekend: Grab a mini. The temps are finally on the rise, so it’s time to let loose and have fun. Pair your skirt with a boxy top and contrasting flats, like Peter Som, and you’re ready to go from sunup to sundown.

SkirtTrend-MaxiProenzaSchouler

In the evening: Work a maxi. A full or pleated skirt, like this Proenza Schouler one, keeps you from looking matronly. The skirt’s full coverage allows you a little more leeway on top—think a cropped or cutout version.

How will you wear these skirt trends? Be sure to tag #StyleSalvation and @DannaDesigns on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to show me your style.

What hemline do you Favor?

Roundup: Best Trends of 2013

Another year is over, but great fashion is never forgotten. These fashion trends made 2013 very stylish. Here are the best trends of the year and possibly this one too!

besttrends-sexy-sheer-panels-trend

Sexy, Sheer Panels

Celebrities enthusiastically embraced—and pushed the limits of—the sheer-panel trend on the red carpet and it has quickly become an A-list  favorite.

Borrowed From the Boys

The 2013 menswear-inspired craze welcomed feminine interpretations of classic suiting textures and styles, tough but flirty brogues, and the comfy-cozy boyfriend sweater.

besttrends-ringparty-trend

Ring Party!

As a follow-up to the Arm Party, the Ring Party made its mark in 2013. From stacks of mixed metals to statement bands to the boho-cool midi ring—there were so many pieces to either wear alone or pile on.

BestTrends-all-white-trend

All White, Even After Labor Day

From summery dresses to post-Labor Day monochrome suits to red-carpet-ready gowns, head-to-toe white remained the trend of choice for all seasons this year. And, yes, all white is totally trendy this year also.

The Dressed-Up Sweatshirt

A product of the athletic-inspired trend, the dressed-up sweatshirt was immediately embraced by the fun- and comfort-loving fashion set. The piece looks just as cute with skinny jeans as it does with a printed skirt,or…. no pants at all.

Cara Delevingne, Lily Collins, Miroslava Duma

besttrends-heavy-metal-trend

Heavy Metal Hardware

Designers embraced the reinvention of rock style with metal-adorned shoes, boots, and sandals. There’s nothing like chains, grommets, and studs of all shapes and sizes to add tough-girl swagger to any outfit.

Saint Laurent fall 2013, Chanel fall 2013, Isabel Marant spring 2013

besttrends-black-and-white-trend

Black and White

With the return of ’90s minimalism, designers sent a slew of black-and-white contrasting dresses, suits, coats, and leather everything down the spring and fall runways. The trend eventually made its way onto many celebrities—and into our closets.

Chanel fall 2013, Michael Kors spring 2013, Proenza Schouler spring 2013

besttrends-dressy-shorts-trend

Dressy Shorts

Shorts became the new dress, skirt, and even suit piece this year. For the most versatility, designers reinterpreted shorts at varying lengths and in bold colors, prints, and textures.  Good News: dressy shorts are also on 2014 runways and this trend is sticking around.

Theyskens’ Theory fall 2013, Tommy Hilfiger spring 2013, Clover Canyon spring 2013

Which of these Trends will you be Wearing this Year?

Denim Vests Under $100

DenimVests

The denim vest is a true transitional piece and the perfect lightweight layer for all of your casual tops and warm-weather dresses. Lucky for you, spending a fortune to get one is not a requirement. Here is an assortment of spring’s coolest denim vests, all under $100!

The Inspiration
Featuring a light wash and distressed detailing, the Denim Vest ($615, 609.317.1000) Cara Delevingne modeled at the Just Cavalli S/S 13 show is unquestionably cool. While its worn-in look is decidedly casual, the addition of the slim Alma Tadema Leopard Pants ($860, 877.551.7257) and nude peep-toe leather platform heels takes the vest from weekend-ready to stylish night out with the girls.

Shop The Look
Levi’s Trucker Vest ($68)
Levi’s has that perfectly worn-in wash down to a science, which explains why we love their Trucker Vest so much. Its vintage-y look would be the perfect complement to a breezy summer frock.

MangoDenim Gilet Vest ($40) in Light Denim Mango’s light-wash denim gilet has a clean and polished look you can easily dress up (pair it with a ruffled dress and platforms) or down (style it with a band tee and black skinnies).

BDG Cutoff Denim Vest ($59)
Frayed hems give this vest a bit of that I’m-with-the band nonchalance we adore. In other words: this should definitely be on your packing list for the upcoming summer music festivals.

BCBGeneration Cropped Denim Vest ($98)
We’re seeing so much white denim this season, and this vest by BCBGeneration offers a fresh way to try the look. Contrast the neutral hue with a bright blouse, or layer it over other white pieces for a monochromatic look.

American Eagle Denim Vest ($50)
The great thing about this American Eagle vest is that it’s fitted around the waist, so it really shows off your shape. The shrunken fit looks equally great with flowy silhouettes or over more body-conscious pieces.

XOXO
