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.
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.
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.
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.
What hemline do you Favor?

Halloween’s in a couple days and you still don’t have a costume? Don’t worry, you can create your own with these inspiring ideas!
Follow my Angelic lead. All you need is an all white ensemble and some wings from the closest costume shop. Voila, your an Angel sweetie!
Smear some black cream liner under your eyes and throw on a football jersey like model Toni Garrn. You’ll be comfy and cute in this costume.
Have a tiara and an over the top baby blue dress? Then you’ve got the makings to get dressed up as Cinderella just like Paris Hilton.
Candice Swanepoel proves all you need to be a sexy vampire is a bold red lip, a drop of fake blood and killer fangs.
Create your own Poison Ivy look like Kim Kardashian in a painted leaves face mask, green dress and red wig…bonus if you add leaves to the dress.
If you’ want some attention the Halloween, you’ll love this costume via the Blurred Lines video. All you need is some skimpy nude colored clothing and high self-esteem, as you will be wearing pretty much nothing else.
Grab your creativity, a Halloween makeup kit and take that flower crown you haven’t touched since summer to follow Hillary Duff’s lead with a trendy homage to the Day of the Dead.
Lauren Conrad looks supercalifragilistic. Channel your own sexy Mary Poppins with a flirty black skirt, button down, flowered hat and don’t forget your umbrella.
You probably have the makings of a ‘bad Sandy’ costume in your closet, just throw on a wig to cop Jessica Hart’s costume.

Asos: Chic Jumpsuit with Open Back ($76) If you’re less of a dress or skirts girl, you’ll appreciate this sleek jumpsuit. Just add a jeweled necklace for a visually intriguing result!
Zara: Mini Skort ($50) in Geranium. Skorts are perfect GNO material. Why? They’re dressier than a pair of shorts, but offer more coverage than a tiny mini skirt.
Blessing-Co: Summer Party Clutch ($28) This graphic party scene clutch is just the right size for holding your keys, lipstick, and cell phone for all those numbers you’ll collect.
Sass and Bide: Not the Enemy Embellished Jacket ($590) Add a jacket, like this one to your outfit for extra polish (silver chain embellishments give off a rock ‘n’ roll vibe).
Paige: Hoxton Coated High-Res Skinnies ($199) in Black Coated. Skinny jeans are great, but try a coated pair for girls’ night out. They’re flashier, which is just what you need for an after-hours event.
Nasty Gal: Sweet Dot Crop Blouse ($32) Bring out your feminine side with this sheer polka-dot top, downplay its cutesy feel by layering it over a lacy bra.
Topshop: Strappy Hem Dress ($84) Your summer tan will pop in this halter body-con dress! Plus, wearing white is your chance to stand out in a sea of black.
Blessing-Co: Mini Crossbody Bag ($20) in Mint. If you want to go hands-free (best for holding more than one cocktail 😉 ) this cute cross-body is a sure bet.
Have a fab Girls Night Out!
