With spring finally here and summer right around the corner, I will be looking for comfortable and easy skirts to wear. It’s time to say goodbye to the mini skirt and any cut above the knee. Yes, sorry girls the jean mini skirt is long gone, but maybe that is not such a bad thing! Longer skirts are in; they vary from knee length to grazing the ground. Basic solid colors, fun whimsical prints, chiffon, silk and cotton skirts will be seen all around the city streets, beaches and boardwalks this summer. They vary from full, body fitting, pleated, breezy to classic pencil skirts! The great part is they can be worn elegant and casual chic. Creating an outfit with a maxi, knee length or ankle length skirt can seem intimidating, but it’s actually quite easy. tuck in a simple tee or fun printed tank with gladiator sandals or a fun pair of flats. You can wear this as a night look as well, swap your sandals for a great pair of wedges, add some jewelry and throw a cute blazer over your top! There is a skirt for everyone, here I hit price points from $300 dollars and under.
