Skirting The Issue: Your Favorite Summer Skirt

Your A-list for summer should include a striped skirt. It will undoubtedly put a spring in your step. Paired with a tee or a crisp white blouse it creates a chic, easy look. The key to styling your summer skirt lies in the proportion. Below the knee, or to the ankle is the way to go. It makes for a long, slim silhouette and can be worn with slides, flats or a sexy heel.

Vertical or horizontal stripes create illusions. Don’t let the horizontal stripe fool you. The width and proportion of the stripe can be incredibly slimming. The Worth New York skirt (feature photo) has all the right elements: wider stripes placed strategically on the body, below the knee for a lengthening effect and a slim cut that narrows the body. Mixed media stripes are fun, sassy and have a slimming effect also.

Add one or several to your summer wardrobe. You’ll love the freedom, ease and comfort a skirt brings to those hot summer days.
