Long skirts, pleated skirts, maxi skirts, they are probably my favourite item in my wardrobe right now. One of my favourites is a dress which I made into a skirt, by cutting off the bodice and making a waist band and adding a zip. I wear it constantly and because the print is mostly red, it is quite bright and colourful and just about any colour top goes with it. Don’t misunderstand me though, I really and truly do love my pants, especially my cargos, but to be honest, I get a little thrill from wearing a skirt, it’s just so much more ladylike, isn’t it? I mean, you put on a skirt and instantly I feel more feminine and sexy. Which is always nice, right?
Here are some of images of skirts I have collected recently. Which do you prefer, long or short? Maxi or tailored? Print or monochromatic?
Such a great trans-seasonal look this one, long skirts keep your legs warm of course, in case a cool breeze picks up unexpectedly, which it tends to do in early Spring.
I like the mix of the ballet flats and the blazer with this maxi. I guess it helps that she’s at least 6 feet tall!
Forgive me if I’m wrong here, but this looks like she has made her dress into a skirt and cinched it with a belt – it looks great, not a bad idea if you’re over wearing a dress in your wardrobe but don’t want to part with it. It gives something a new lease on life – like when you cut off your old denim jeans into shorts.
I really like the print on this skirt – her hair is such a great style too.
I think this is the same girl second from the top? At least same skirt and shoes anyway – I love the bright knit sweater with her sunny yellow skirt.
So this is my favourite skirt. I got it from Topshop and it was a dress, but I made it into a skirt and I wear it about ten times more now. I don’t have a remote for my camera, nor was there anyone about to help me, so I apologise for the angle, but you get the idea. What do you think?
