If you want to feel feminine and flirty, then a perky skirt is the way to go. Here is a quick look at REAL women on the street – Fashion bloggers and Fabulous After 40 readers who show off their skirt style.
Timeless Tulle Skirt
Tulle isn’t just for graceful ballerinas. It’s also one of this season’s hottest trends and looks especially pretty as a midi-length skirt.
Fashion blogger Vale fell in love with this delicate mint color and now finds that this tulle skirt is one of her favorite spring pieces. It’s romantic, nostalgic and quite girly, which makes Vale feel a bit like she’s playing dress-up.
In fact, when Vale wore this skirt, she had so many compliments from adults and children too, that it made her feel like she was living a fairytale.
Vale likes to pair her vintage-inspired, tulle skirt with this ladylike color block bag, colorful pumps that play off the mint color of the skirt, and this artsy statement necklace.
This is one dreamy color palette and a beautiful way to wear this spring’s pastels! Don’t miss more of Vale’s inspiring fashion sense and her life in Italy at her blog Fashion and Cookies.
Florals pop up every spring but this season ushered in a more moody floral: the dark floral.
Glenda loves the visual arts and was drawn to this fabric blocked peplum top from Zara because it looks like a painting you’d see in a museum. She’s paired it with one of the new tea length skirts for a look that’s lady-like but on the creative side too.
Love the sandals and the clutch. They really polish off the look. Gorgeous Glenda! You can see more of Glenda’s daily dose of fashion at her blog So What To Twenty!
The Spotted Skirt
Half-way across the world in Alaska, there’s Nicole wearing this smart pleated black and white polka dot skirt.
Typically you’d think of a solid color up top, but Nicole has gotten creative and mixed things up adding a floral cardigan. It’s an unexpected pairing that makes you look twice.
To finish off the look, she’s added a pearl statement necklace, thin black leather belt to show off her tiny waist and some sexy white pumps.
The result is a very ladylike, but fashion forward look that has a lot of fun energy! Be sure to visit Nicole at High Latitude Style where she blogs about staying stylish in Alaska’s cold temperatures.
Do you have an outfit that makes you feel like a million bucks …that once you put it on, you never want to take it off? (I do)
For Monica, that outfit is a navy and white check skirt that she pairs with a matching sleeveless blouse. Monica says this cute spring outfit she bought at Banana Republic makes her think of sunny picnics in the park.
To give her skirt the attention it deserves, Monica keeps her accessories in the neutral zone with nude gladiator sandals and gold jewelry. I like the nautical feel of this look. It’s so breezy and fresh.
