Fashionistas around the world are united by one staple item, which has been spotted on runways galore and remains a total must-have. Some Fashionistos, including Kanye West, have also been seen donning this item. The skirt is a very popular fashion essential that can be worn during any season.
Because this garment comes in so many shapes and sizes, it’s hard to choose one style! The A-line skirt is a skirt that is fitted at the waist and widens gradually as it lengthens, usually stopping at mid-thigh. Pencil skirts are straight and narrow skirts that accentuates a woman’s curves. These skirts are for more formal occasions and are worn by many women in the workplace. My favorite skirt, the maxi skirt, is an ankle-length skirt designed with different prints and fabrics. It can be worn during laid-back occasions. Considering how popular skirts are this season, when I saw this Fashionista wearing her A-line skirt around campus I had to approach her.
This week’s featured Fashionista looks super youthful and trendy as she combined a distressed, vintage jean jacket, beige boots with high purple socks and a vertical striped crop top into her outfit. The skirt is a great item to add because it gives a flirty feel to this Fashionista’s look.
Her look is quite easy to imitate. If the windy weather is too unbearable for a crop top alone, add an oversized cardigan as an alternative to a bulky jacket. This Fashionista’s skirt is a simple black A-line skirt that can be found in stores like Forever 21
and Urban Outfitters
. Adding printed tights underneath this A-line skirt is a sure way to attract attention and have some fun with prints. Another great thing about this Fashionista’s look is her ability to quickly change from a relaxed day style to a night in the city look. By switching her boots for a pair of open toe strappy heels and swapping her old school jean jacket with a sophisticated black blazer, this Fashionista is ready for the night!
