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!
