The Unexpected Fall Skirt Trend Every Woman Over 40 Needs To Try ASAP

Many women over the age of 40 consider wearing skirts to be a little tricky. Two very common fears are that you’ll either A) look like you’re trying to be inappropriately young, or B) look old lady-ish in a skirt that reminds you of something your great grandma would wear.

We understand, but we don’t necessarily agree. There are plenty of skirts styles that look flattering on women of all ages!

If you’re looking for a flattering, age-appropriate skirt trend to add to your fall wardrobe, a-line styles should be your best friend. No matter what your age, you can (and SHOULD) embrace this trend with confidence. A-line skirts are fun and flirty, but also modest and comfortable. They come in a variety of colors and prints so it’s easy to find one that fits your personal style.

The A-line silhouette flatters every body type and is easy to wear with some of your favorite fall shoes. Look for a-line skirts that are midi length, meaning they’ll skim your mid-calf area.
