What To Wear On Thanksgiving: Elastic-Waist Everything–Pants, Skirts, More
If we could, we'd wear our pajamas to Thanksgiving. What's the point of dressing up for a holiday when all you do is sit around a house and eat all day? Of course we'd like to look presentable for our family and all of those group photos, but housing a solid serving (or two or three) of turkey and mashed potatoes isn't comfy if you're formally dressed. Even a pair of jeans sounds painful. Which is why we decided that Thanksgiving calls for drawstring pants and skirts so our bottom's waistbands expand with our waistlines. (Don't freak out, it's temporary, obvs.) Pair your elastic trousers with a cashmere sweater and oxfords, or team your drawstring skirt with a chambray button-down and ankle boots. You can still look polished without compromising your comfort—or your turkey dinner. Check out our slideshow to see what you'll be wearing this Thanksgiving. [Photo: Cheetah is the New Black]

While I am sure she looked fab at the deli, we may save this piece for a date night or Saturday brunch.

Aw, how nice to see A-listers supporting each other. Beyonce just stepped out in NYC wearing this pretty mid-length black skirt with a flared hemline and white trim--which turns out to be from none other than Victoria Beckham's line (she's actually a fan).

I Could Not Be More Thrilled That Denim Skirts Are Back
Last week one of my colleagues told you all about how button-front denim skirts are back for spring, and the truth is that pretty much all denim skirts ares--midi, long, mini, a-line. I cannot tell you how excited I am about this. For the last few years it has been all about denim shorts, which are just not flattering on me. I'm a size 8/10, and for some reason shorts like to ride up my non-gapped thighs when I walk, and finding a pair that fits and is flattering is nearly impossible (if the leg holes fit, then the waist is way too big and the butt is saggy). I just don't feel cute in them, but give me a nice denim mini skirt with a raw hemline and maybe some distressing, and I look bomb.com. Who's with me?? Leave a comment below if you're a denim skirt girl, then click through the slideshow above to shop my favs. I AM buying the Current/Elliott ones from the first slide, please note.

Add Button-Front Denim Skirts To The List Of 70s Trends Making A Comeback
The 70's revival for spring is real, you guys. There's wide leg pants, peasant tops and clogs all set to make a comeback, but the trend I am most looking forward to wearing is the button-front denim skirt. Why? Well, as a 90s kid, who loved her denim mini in the early aughts, this is a childhood throwback to me of some sorts. Just, you know, with a slightly more grown-up/vintage-y vibe then my dELiA*s skirt. Click the slideshow to shop styles from 7 For All Mankind, Stella McCartney and yes, that Alexa Chung x AG skirt (we found one that's not sold out AND still available in most sizes!).

Pass On The Pastels And Rock Spring’s Black And White Skirt Trend Instead
Every year around this time stores start displaying tons of mint green, baby blue, pale pink and lavender. It's spring, so I get it--Easter eggs, pastels, yadda yadda. But if those sweet colors just aren't your thing, here's some good news: black and white is also trending big time for the upcoming season. Namely, black and white skirts. Whether mini or midi, printed or striped, the options are pretty much endless. Even better? They'll look good with your black tights on those lingering cold days, but you can rock them bare-legged as well. Shop the best of the bunch on the slideshow.

If You Buy One New Skirt For Spring, Make It A Full Midi
If I learned one thing from attending NYFW, it's that people still wear ridiculous things to shows even when it's freezing outside. If I learned two things, it was that one that I just mentioned and that full midi skirts are a huge trend for spring. There are those out there who say that these kinds of skirts only work on runway models, but I say different. With the right top (always go for something form-fitting) and the perfect shoes (any kind of wedge or heel is best), all women can pull off this trend. Click through our slideshow to see some of our favorite picks from ASOS, Kate Spade and more.

43 Ways To Dress Like A Ballerina This Spring: Tulle Skirts, Wrap Tops, More
Good news for anyone that's been feeling nostalgic about their childhood dance classes—spring is giving you an excuse to dress like a ballerina. That means you can wear pale pinks and grey tones, ballet flats, gauzy tulle, parachute silks and even leotards again. Back in September, designer Tomas Maier of Bottega Veneta sent models down the runway in tap shorts, cropped knit wrap tops, and one very incredible pale pink cashmere wrap coat—but it doesn't end there. Stella McCartney's spring collection is chock full of parachute silks and fluid ruffles, and the designers at Tome used a ton of blushy taffeta and pink sateen. The bottom line here is that it's now completely acceptable to leave the house looking like your headed to a ballet barre class even though you're really just going to Trader Joe's. In fact, it's encouraged. So take advantage while it lasts, and enjoy wearing slouchy grey cardigans with pale silk camis, or flowy tulle skirts with bodysuits—there's no better time to do it.

Let Your Legs Come Out And Play In These Winter-To-Spring Work Skirts
If you live in the Northeast or Midwest, I don't have to tell you how cold it's been. The frigid temps have made getting dressed a bit of a bore, but we say it's time to have some fun again by trading in your black, grey and navy work pants for skirts. Obviously, fleece-lined tights are an absolute must, but take my word for it--you'll feel so liberated ditching the slacks. Treat yourself to a few of our favorite work skirts in the slideshow.

Alexa Chung's collection for AG Jeans hit last month and has been selling like crazy. Standouts from the collab include the sold-out Pixie dress, white skinny jeans (as seen on Alexa herself) and the Kety Skirt. Oh, you thought denim mini skirts died along with the Juicy tracksuit?

Need A Break From Wooly Knits & Leather This Fall? The Lace Hem Trend Is For You
If you already need a break from fall's chunky knits, wool and corduroy, here's a trend you're sure to find refreshing--lace hems. I'm a sucker for lace, so I'm super excited to invest in a skirt and a dress or two with a delicate lace hemline. It's this season's romantic take on the mixed media trend that's been big for a while now, and I have to say I'm glad designers are finally playing with something other than leather.

3 Bloggers Demonstrate How To Wear A Midi Skirt Without Looking Like A Grandma
Despite common belief, you don't have to be a skinny mini and you definitely don't have to be a grandma to wear a midi skirt, you just have to know what to pair it with. Just the other day, our Editorial Director wore a floral midi skirt to the office with a t-shirt and flat sandals. She looked so cute and put together, but she made us wonder what else we could wear midis with. The options are really endless. You can dress midis up with heels or dress them down with denim. Midis are great for work or special events when you need to be a little more conservative. You can't show off your sexy legs all the time. Save your short skirts for the club. Since we're still trying to catch on to the midi trend to, we thought we would turn to our favorite bloggers to show you how to wear them, so check out the pictures below and shop their looks. Wear your midi skirt... 1. With a button-down shirt. Just tie it up and add some heels and jewelry to match. Showing a little skin and wearing high heels will assure you don't look like a grandma. Although Briony of A Girl A Style's skirt is sold out, we found a similar style here. Get the look: Topshop Antique Jacquard Midi Skirt ($96), Topshop Casual Chambray Shirt ($58), Steve Madden 'Stecy' Sandal ($79.95) 2. As a matching set. Although some sets look a little bit too matchy-matchy, you can easily pull off the look by pairing your set with a statement shoe or necklace. Julia of Gal Meets Glam paired her midi set with bold yellow shoes and earrings for a summer wedding. When you look at each of the pieces seperately, you would never think to wear them together, but pairing pieces that don't match with your matching set will make it less extreme. Get Julia's exact midi skirt set: Tibi Cropped Top ($298), Tibi Pleat Skirt ($495), J.Crew Dangling Teardrop Earrings ($45), and Nine West Flax ($48.99, down from $69) 3. With a denim jacket. You can transition your midi skirt from summer to fall just by adding a denim jacket. For the summer, pair it with sandals, but in the fall wear flats or combat boots. Midi skirts can be worn any season (except in the snow, obvi). Get Honey & Silk's pleated midi look: Topshop Sport Waistband Pleat Midi Skirt ($76), Topshop Moto Vintage Wash Denim Jacket ($90), and Madden Girl Cindiee ($39.99, down from $49.95) For more blogger inspiration, check out: how to wear boots in the summer, how to wear a jumsuit, and how to wear shortalls.

15 Skirts That Will Have Your Dad Asking ‘Did They Run Out Of Fabric?’
The illusion skirt isn't anything new. Back in 2011, we saw designers like Chloé send the trend down the runway for Spring/Summer. Fast forward three years later and the look is getting an update. What once was a mini skirt paired under a sheer mesh overlay has taken on a new form. Most of them now come in a midi length with anything from a mini to below the knee skirt under a lace, mesh or eyelet overlay. It's the perfect solution for day 3 of not shaving when you can just see the hair, but it's too hot to wear pants. Admit it, you face that problem during the summer too. Tibi, Rebecca Minkoff and Free People are just a few who have re-imagined the trend for Spring/Summer 2014. Take a look at the best ones in the slideshow starting at just $58.

Yes, We’re Taking Style Tips From A 16-Year-Old: Shop Skirts Like Kylie Jenner’s
Kim Kardashian isn't the only one taking style tips from her little sister, Kylie Jenner. Even before Kim snagged the 16-year-old's black bikini, we've always noticed that Kylie is a pro at getting dressed. She's definitely nailed down a Cali cool girl look with her everyday wardrobe of graphic T-shirts, minimal color palette, and moto-style jackets. But the one thing we're going to incorporate into our own outfits this season is a high-slit skirt, a Kylie favorite.

While the temperatures slowly begin to rise, so will our hemlines, and the asymmetrical draping on these skirts puts a fun twist on the classic black maxi.

How To Wear Oversized Sweaters With Skirts, Aka Your Winter-To-Spring Wardrobe
If you're anywhere in the country, except maybe the Southwest and Southern California, you're probably freezing right now. It's pretty harsh out there, and needless to say, we're ready for spring to come! But it will have to get significantly warmer before we can even think about shopping for sundresses and sandals. Still...we're in the mood to shop! And we all need something for those in between days that's easy to put together, comfy, can keep us reasonably warm if we add in a few accessories, and looks great. Ladies, you're in luck because we've found the perfect combo. Meet your winter to spring uniform: oversized sweaters with skirts. Here's how to wear it: 1. If you go for a print, don't use a busy pattern. Chunky knits add volume, and with all that heavy fabric, you'll want to keep it simple. Sure, there are girls out there who can rock a Bill Cosby sweater three sizes too large and still look slim as ever, but most are not so lucky. Go for something more subdued or classic, or look for something with a graphic. Get the look: Carven Grey Embroidered Face Sweatshirt ($410); Catherine Malandrino Antigone Wool Skirt ($129.99, down from $257); Jeffrey Campbell Wedge Booties In Draco Studded ($345); By Zoe Oversized Color Block Coat ($175, down from $416.68); Dorothy Perkins Grey Chunky Beanie ($9); Proenza Schouler Mini Black PS11 Shoulder Bag ($1,675); and Lauren Ralph Lauren Opaque Control-Top Tights ($18) 2. Play with texture. The best thing about cool weather ensembles are all the fun textures you can experiment with. We love the idea of a fuzzy sweater with a slick leather skirt, PVC and pony hair, or cable knit and sequins. Get the look: Topshop Knitted Fluffy Jumper ($60, down from $76); Tibi Quilted Lurex Jacquard Skirt ($199.50, down from $285); and Shoe Culte Equine Bootie ($98) 3. Mix it up with menswear. Being girly is cool, but it's also fun to borrow from the boys. Add a jazzy oxford, brogue, or loafer with this look, all of which (bonus) will be easy on your feet. For the brave: throw on some socks that stop just above your ankle. Get the look: La Garçonne Moderne Didon Chunky Turtleneck ($450); Surface To Air Drop Skirt ($96, down from $160); Steve Madden Beekman Oxford ($89.95); MICHAEL Michael Kors Logo-Print Crossbody ($148); and Ray-Ban Boyfriend Flat Top Frame ($145) Want more?

What Is The World Coming To? Beyonce’s Topshop Skirt Is Available In Every Size!
Once upon a time, anything Beyonce wore would sell out in a matter of hours. And if said item was less than $75? It was likely to be gone before you even knew who the designer was. But believe it or not, this Topshop Geo Knit Pencil Skirt ($72) Bey wore for one of her Instagram photo shoots is not only still available, it's in stock in every size. Now we'd hate to think Beyonce's lost her selling power, so we're just gonna chalk this one up to the fact that you had no idea her skirt was so cheap. But consider yourself warned: if your closet could use a little color, better snatch up Beyonce's exact skirt before it sells out (because trust us, it will). Get yours below.

Ditch That LBD And Try This For Holiday Parties Instead: A Big Skirt
When it comes to holiday parties this year, the dress is definitively out. In it's place are sequined pants, leather anything and full skirts perfect for pairing with anything cropped. But, it's holiday season after all and there's nothing like going a bit girly and getting extra festive (sans the androgyny). So, of the three holiday party-wear trends this year, we're going with the full skirt option because it's the biggest, the most eye-catching and, honestly, the easiest transition into next year. Here's how: Pair it with your favorite tee. Weather you opt for a black, matte version or a sparkly, tulle type, let a big skirt take center stage of your ensemble. Better yet, you don't have to be any less comfortable for the wear. Grab your favorite tee (make it a graphic one, even) and tuck it into the waist of the skirt. The tee will lessen the fancy feel and make an eye-catching skirt wearable to the office before the party that night. Add a skinny belt to draw the eye to your waist, and now the big skirt has more slimming magic than the traditional LBD. It's a win/win. Finally get use out of your cropped sweaters. Cropped sweaters have been everything this season, but high-waist jeans are hardly anywhere to be found. Wearing a cropped top with leggings? Come on. We know better than to wear leggings with anything that doesn't cover the bum. So what do you pair those belly-button skimming sweaters with before its too warm to be able to wear them? The big skirt. Pull the waist of the skirt up a few centimeters under the cropped top, and now, even when your doing the YMCA, you'll be office holiday party appropriate. Play into the fancy vibe. Remember when getting really dressed up to go out was a thing? No, not with your newest NastyGal purchase, but with that really nice mink your grandmother left you or that emerald ring your mom is letting you borrow. OK--so years of a recession economy have made dolling up on the regular a thing of the past (and it's likely few of us have ever actually done it outside of senior prom). But you've seen Sex and the City and you know what dressing to the Ts means. And a big skirt is your chance. Pair on the big jewels, grab yourself a cropped, sequined tee and throw on your highest stilettos. Ring in the holiday season with some much needed grandeur. Here are our eight favorite big skirts, pair-able for all of your holiday party needs. [Photo: Sea of Shoes]
Give In Already–A-Line Skirts Are Everywhere!
You can hardly look through any brand's lookbook this season without seeing some type of a-line skirt. They are paired with sweaters, with stockings, with tank tops even (seriously, what climate do you live in?). The only really consistent thing about this seemingly very versatile trend is that everyone is doing it, from Zara to Michael Kors. Usually, such a heavy handed trend might not be what you want to invest your dollars in. After all, how do you stand out if everyone is wearing it? But, here's the cool thing: a-line skirts are slimming and festive--the two things we all most need near holiday season. Because a-line skirts generally start around your belly button and fan out mid-thigh, right above the knee or right below it, they pull the eye down to the thinner parts of your legs. Plus, they are lazy day appropriate. Throw a sweater over an a-line skirt and you'll trick everyone into thinking you didn't just roll out of bed. The only drawback? If you're living in a seriously cold climate, get you some tights or hose to keep your exposed legs warm! [Photo: Lee Oliviera]
We Found The One Place You Can Still Buy Reese Witherspoon’s A.L.C. Leather Skirt
If there is one celebrity who can rock the hell out of a skirt, it's Reese Witherspoon. We loved the one she wore with her Club Monaco quilted jacket last week, but we definitely love this A.L.C. Reese Leather Skirt ($417, down from $695) in oxblood even more. Between the color and the slightly flared silhouette, it's a no-brainer. Except that the skirt is just about sold out everywhere online. Lucky for you, we found it one place online, but you have to act fast. They only have it in a few sizes and something tells us they won't last. Find out where to get Reese's leather skirt below. A.L.C.

Leather Skirts Don’t Have To Be Short And Tight: Shop Knee-Length, Midi & More
You know it's officially fall once you break out your leather skirt. A leather mini with boots and tights is practically a uniform this time of year. But, since designers like Calvin Klein, Alexander Wang and Michael Kors showed longer silhouettes on the runway, the mini leather skirt is officially out. Instead, everyone is into A-Line and pencil skirts with hems that hit below the knee. It's a totally different look from a mini and gives you a whole new outlook on how to wear a leather skirt. Try a sweatshirt and heels with a burgundy leather midi, or a tee tucked into a figure-hugging black leather pencil skirt. Still edgy and sexy right? Just a little more grown-up. Still not convinced yet? Click the slideshow to shop long leather skirts. We promise you'll find one to replace that same leather mini you've been wearing since college.

4 Ways To Wear A Skirt And Boots For Fall, No Tights Necessary.
Every fall there's a small window of opportunity where you don't have to wear tights with skirts. It's not too cold to let your bare legs get some fresh air before you have to cover them up for good. And it's not too hot to cover up your feet with boots, hence the skirt and boots combo that everyones wearing. But there's specific rules for pulling off this look. A mini skirt with bootie heels? Too stripper-esque. A midi skirt with flat boots? The proportions will be so uneven it will swallow you up. And a maxi with heels just looks plain awkward. We break down which skirt and which boots look best together so you can try this look out for the next few weeks before temps really drop. Click the slideshow to see how to wear skirts with boots.

Introducing Skeggings–The Best Thing To Hit Your Closet Since, Well, Leggings.
It's almost that time of year when wearing leggings to work is appropriate (with tall black boots--obv!), and what better way to commence leggings season than with an AMAZING new clothing item you'll wish you thought of first. Skeggings! Newsflash from xoJane: Skeggings exist, and don't even to pretend like you don't know what they are. The skirt has finally met the legging, and the two have turned into one. A few questions that should be addressed: Q: How have I never heard of skeggings before? A: The answer may never be known, especially since it seems as though multiple brands carry them including Soneed, Color of Basic, Cookie 7 and Click. (I know, we're all still confused. Getting there.) However, YesStyle.com seems to be the official or at least the best skeggings curator out there. And boy, do they have a wide variety. From tight fitting skeggings to pleated skeggings, and nearly everything in between, your skegging collection can be almost as varied as your actual skirt collection, and in as many colors as your leggings one. Q: I own both skirts and leggings. If I wear them together, isn't this skeggings? A: In theory, yes. In actuality, not at all. Covering what many women deem to be the worst part of leggings (the showing-all-of-your-butt-without-much-fabric-between-it-and-the-real-world part) with another skirt that you own just wasn't enough. Instead, the style obviously needs to come sewn together, because you know, skirts and leggings are the peanut butter and jelly of fashion (too far?). Anyway, skeggings come in at around or under $25, so in the long run, they are much cheaper than your skirt and leggings as a two-not-one combo. Though, you probably won't get as much wear out of them (Sorry, no skeggings at the wedding. Skirts allowed, though!). Q: Why do these photos bring up feelings of both disgust and love, in equal proportions, at the exact same time? Honestly, I do not know. I think skeggings and automatically I'm thinking of crocs, little girl bows in women's hair and all other fashion and beauty items that tried so hard to be a thing but that thankfully got a big fat "NO" from the style community. But then, I see a picture of skeggings and I'm reminded that Snuggies exist -- and for good reason -- and my desire for comfortable clothes pretty much makes this a closed-book cased with me siding on giving it two thumbs up. OK, maybe just one. Tell us what you think in the comments! Here you go, you can shop 294 skegging options.
Summer BBQs Going Straight To Your Thighs? Hide Them Under A Maxi Skirt
Maxi skirts are one of our favorite summer staples. Not only are they incredibly comfortable and easy to dress up or down, but they're flattering on virtually all body types.

Hate Your Legs But Can’t Survive The Summer Heat In Pants? Meet The Midi Skirt
The truth is, not all of us are blessed with perfect legs. Whether you hate that your gams are too skinny, too fat, too pale or too stubbly, that's no reason to torture yourself in pants all summer long. You can always stock up on flowy maxi skirts, but there's another option, too: the midi skirt. With a hemline situated somewhere between your knees and upper ankles, a midi skirt is great for concealing less than perfect legs, but also staying cool in the summer heat. And with designers like Elizabeth and James, Derek Lam and Tibi making them this season, you'll have no problem finding a few that flatter your body. Shop our faves in the slideshow.

Maria Menounos In Alice + Olivia: Rainbow Brite, Eat Your Heart Out!
If there was ever a gay pride mascot, Maria Menounos would be in the running. She stepped out to support the cause in LA wearing a flamboyant outfit, bursting with colors.

Is Reese Witherspoon’s Latest Orange Outfit Inspired By Her Jail Stint?
First she wore this bright, tunic dress and now Reese Witherspoon is wearing her favorite new color - orange - again. Her short, burnt orange Rebecca Minkoff Dane Bandana Print Skirt ($201, down from $288) looks a lot more comfortable than her jailhouse alternative - an orange jumpsuit.

Why Tie A Shirt Around Your Waist When You Can Buy A $270 Skirt With Fake Sleeves?
Now that overalls are making a comeback, it only makes sense that other 90s trends follow suit. And nothing screams, "Angela Chase is my style icon" more than wearing a flannel shirt around your waist. I have to admit, I kind of love the whole "tying a shirt around your pants" trend (talk about convenient). I'm a sucker for 90s nostalgia: There's still a little part of me that wants to dye my hair red, lean up against a locker and dream about Jordan Catalano. When I saw that 3.1. Phillip Lim had a printed pencil skirt with a flannel shirt tied around the waist, I fell in love. Until I realized that the flannel shirt was faux. As much as I love the trend, there's no way I'd pay $270 (originally $450) for a skirt with a FAKE shirt tie around it. Maybe I could justify the price if I got a whole flannel, but just sleeves isn't going to cut it. Seriously, Phillip Lim, for once I don't need your designer expertise, I'm pretty sure tying a shirt around my waist is a DIY project I can handle. What do you think of the trend's revival? Check out the different grunge styles below and let me know what you think. 3.1 Phillip Lim 'Skirt with Shirt Tie' in 'Antique White' ($270, down from $450) 3.1 Phillip Lim 'Skirt with Shirt Tie' in 'Black' ($270, down from $450) Rihanna also jumped in on the trend with a pair of white shorts with a fake denim shirt attached. Her version is slightly more reasonably priced: Rihanna for River Island 'White Rihanna Tied Shirt Denim Shorts' ($125) For more 90s throwback fashion, check out Nasty Gal x Lazy Oaf, Rihanna's new River Island collection and our list of 90s TV style icons.
