One look I'm loving right now is big, full skirts. Not just the skirt but the way it's worn. Preferably with a simple tee, either cropped or tucked in. The idea is that the skirt is opulent and voluminous, so your top half should be understated...a modest complement to the not-so-modest bottom. The ideal skirt should fit at the narrowest part of your waist, to balance out the volume and prevent the appearance of added weight on your frame. This is why it's also important that your top is either tucked in or slightly cropped to fall just above the waistline. (You do not want a shirt that falls over the skirt as this would add bulk to your mid-section.) Top off the look with one fabulous accessory, like a statement necklace, and you're good to go!
When it comes to shopping for a nice, full skirt...I adore this option from nastygal.com! Nasty Gal styles it edgy for sure, but the skirt is super versatile. It fits high on the waist and has the right amount of fullness needed to master this look. Plus you can't go wrong with black and at only $68 it looks ultra posh for the price...do you see that silky soft sheen? You could absolutely rock this skirt for a holiday party or event in the next few months, and in fact I would recommend it! It's a chic, fashion-forward look that I myself plan to try out this holiday season.
