When I first heard the term “paper bag” in connection to fashion, I didn’t think it was anything to rave about. Well, CollegeFashionistas, I was very wrong. Paper bag skirts have taken fall’s trends by storm. With it's unique cinching top resembling a paper bag, this piece flatters the waists of almost everyone. This Fashionista is rocking a trendy bright orange paper bag skirt. Her particular skirt can be found at J.Crew. Paper bag skirts from J.Crew are perfect for the cold weather because they are cozy and comfy double serge wool. If you are looking for some other stores to find this piece, look no further than Topshop. I found great colored paper bag waist skirts on their website in multiple colors and get this — it’s on sale for just $24, so get them while you can! Although this Fashionista did not add a belt, some paper bag skirts have convenient belt loops for a cute leather belt, too.
This ensemble is completed with an adorable polka-dot button-down blouse. As seen on the runway recently at Valentino for a shocking $1,400, polka-dots are definitely a huge trend this season. From sweaters to blouses to patterned jeans, polka-dots can be found anywhere and everywhere. I found that there is a Pins and Needles polka-dot button-down blouse on sale right now at Urban Outfitters for half the original price! So if you are looking to recreate this outfit, it is definitely attainable at a great price. Last but not least, do not forget the classic brown riding boots!
With the holiday season just around the corner, it’s never too early to start thinking about your holiday outfits. So why not think about sporting a cute and comfy paper bag skirt?
