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.

Girls Night Out Musthaves

GNO When prepping an outfit for a hot summer evening, look no further than these GNO essentials.  Here are party-ready pieces that are tastefully alluring, but also incredibly fashion-forward.

GNO-jumpsuitAsos: 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!

GNO-skortZara: 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.

Summer Party ClutchBlessing-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.

GNO-jacketSass 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).

GNO-coatedskinniesPaige: 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.

GNO-blouseNasty 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.

GNO-strappydressTopshop: 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.

Green-Crossbody-bagBlessing-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!

XOXO

Sporty Crop Tops

Thanks to high necklines, bra-like silhouettes, and stretchy knit fabrics that cling to the body, the bare midriff look makes a return to its athletic roots this season. These sporty crops are perfect for showcasing a svelte figure, as demonstrated by the likes of Diane Kruger, and Candice Lake, and are a sleek and chic choice for a number of evening events too.
