More relaxed than the pencil and more polished than the mini, according to the Spring 2013 runways and the likes of Victoria Beckham, Michael Kors and Dolce & Gabbana, this season it's all about the A-line. And what's not to love, with its 60s attitude and universally flattering shape, this prim separate will give both your day and evening wardrobe a refreshing turnaround. And while this clean silhouette almost never errs on the polished side, it can and will venture into frumpy-land if not styled properly. So think fitted tops, classic belts and ladylike heels for a combination that is irresistibly fresh.
Very Now Wow
Of-the-moment details like sheer checkered cut-out windows and an unfinished hem give this skirt a very fresh turn.
Infuse a punch of color to your spring wardrobe by adding this bright yellow mid-length skirt. Sheer panels along the hemline make for an unexpected but sexy accent.
A tonal colored hem gives what would be an otherwise basic white skirt sophistication and plenty of style cred.
Glorious hummingbirds provide a charming encounter on the front of a sharply tailored A-line skirt. For a more casual stance, pair this fancy separate with a marbled gray solid jersey tee.
Invest in A-Line
Take yourself out of the hurry by investing in this basic but polished separate every working girl needs in her closet. Spruce things up by adding a bold top or a major statement necklace.
A-Line with Edge
Chunky plastic zip accents bring further edge to an already very trendy fluorescent piece. In order to avoid trend overload, or worse, looking cheap, keep your top as basic and as streamlined as possible.
This pink pastel mini is a great addition to any spring wardrobe. Delicate organza flowers downplay the short hemline, making this sweet separate daytime appropriate.
Bold chevron stripes in shades of red, navy and white transport a classic separate into a delightful discovery. Give it a vacation-inspired upgrade by pairing it with a cap-sleeved button down and strappy espadrilles.
Cut from mixed media, this statement skirt is an instant outfit upgrader. Keep your styling on the mod side by adding a white top and white patent leather pumps.
