Playing with skirts

March is here, which means New York Fashion Week is now only a figment of our imagination and hopefully spring is right around the corner. Although New York was showcasing its fall 2015 looks, there were lots of variations on skirts, with one common thread - shorter didn't seem to be better.

From Altuzarra to Victoria Beckham, there was a range of skirt options, which is especially exciting for someone like me that loves to wear skirts. As with all runway fashions, you don't have to like the whole ensemble. There is also a good chance we will see these fashions trickling down to specialty and department stores in one version or another, so there will be a lot of room to play around with what works best for you.

With that said, lets discuss some skirt options that will work for nearly anytime of the year:

Trumpet Skirt

This style of skirt can be amazing on, whether for work or play. The catch is to make sure you understand your body type, as depending where the flare and sometimes ruffles hit your legs, it can make short legs look shorter. Pair it with an Adea Long Sleeve Mock Neck Layering Top, as necks were mostly covered this past New York Fashion Week and can make transitioning seasons a little easier.

Pencil Skirt

From a button-down silk top to a sweater, there are so many possibilities available with this style of skirt. Since the skirt is often curve hugging, I often like to balance it out with a nicely tailored top or a top with some room to breathe- to help add some contrast to the form fitting skirt.

A-Line Skirt

This skirt option is one of my favorite styles because it can be fun and youthful while also flattering for nearly any body type. Much like the other skirts, I advise to look at balance. If your A-line style is one that hugs the hips slightly, then you can have a looser top. Yet, if your A-line goes straight out from your hips, I advise wearing a more form fitting top, such as an Adea Layering Top to balance the outfit.
