Skirting the issue

With spring coming up, mini skirts are a must!  But for this season, go for miniskirts with texture and a lot of personality.
Consider wearing any of these with your platforms, wedge sandals, or flats:

1) Volume: The “volume” in these skirts come in delicate, chiffon (or other similar material) details so it’s not a lot of “volume”.  They’re feminine, fun, and flirty. Pair them with form-fitting tops.

2) Metallic/funk: This is great for any glam evening out. To temper the “dazzle” and for a more “effortlessly chic” look, wear with a more basic top.

3) Punchy color: Any skirt in a solid, vibrant hue is great for spring! Wear with neutrals—gray, black, beige.
Love the yellow skirt from Charlotte Russe. (Actually mixes this trend and Volume.)

Sequins for Spring

Q- Are sequins in or out for Spring?

A – In!  A lot of people are quick to label sequins as nighttime wear, but the way to wear sequins now is to actually relegate them from formal, chi-chi events to more casual, I’m-wearing-sequins-for-day-so-what looks.

So now you’ll see sequined tops paired with a denim mini skirt. Or a sequined cardigan with a floral dress and flats. Like this champagne number from Anthropologie, Lenox Square, $128

Of course, you can still wear sequins at night; that is, after all, when they’re most effective—they literally add more sparkle to your look.  But remember to wear one sequined piece—not two and definitely not more than two.
