If you organized your closet like I did, you may find that it looks kinda barren.
Skirts (along with dresses) are a life saver for the spring/summer wardrobe. A good casual summer skirt is usually under $40! However, summer skirts can be embarrassingly sheer. Make sure it’s lined or have trusted fellow fashionista to check you out in a brightly lit area of the store. Cheeky should be an attitude problem not a fashion don’t!
A-LINE skirts are dummy-proof! They work on every woman. They minimize the hips while adding subtle curves.
LONG skirts actually makes you look taller. Plus, they minimize hips and thighs! : win:
PENCIL skirts are great for women who are happy with their curves or wish to look curvier. Proceed with caution!
If you NEVER wear pants, here’s the minimum amount of skirts you should have in your warm weather closet:
2 season-less work skirts
2 summer work skirts (crisp and professional!)
1 day-to-evening skirt
2 summer weekend skirts
1 denim skirt
1 leather or suede skirt (yes, I said it! Leather is year-round baby!)
1 summer evening skirt (optional, unless your social calender is FULL!)
Save: on casual skirts like denim or floaty summer skirts.
