skirtsandtshirts-KateFoley

A plain white tee is the perfect foil to an embellished skirt like stylist Kate Foley’s.

skirtsandtshirts-blondesalad

Channel your inner Black Swan with a tulle maxi like The Blonde Salad Chiara Ferragni’s Alberta Ferretti version.

skirtsandtshirts-StStyle1

St. Style: Play match-maker with a coordinating top and bottom.

skirtsandtshirts-StStyle2

Sophia Loren, is that you?! Nothing feels more feminine than a full skirt.

skirtsandtshirts-AtlanticPacific

A pencil silhouette, especially in a striking fabric, works equally well. Here, Atlantic-Pacific blogger Blair Eadie wears a Milly Hologram Leather Edith Skirt ($625), and Madewell Linen Paris Tee ($45).

Have a Trendy Day!
