Short, tight and full of Lycra is always one way to go…but mini circle skirts are undeniably on the rise, literally and figuratively. Earlier this year, the longer version (sometimes referred to as a dirndl skirt) was being taken up by our favorite style-setters. Rather than tossing the idea out with the rest of their winter gear, they’ve merely started wearing shorter versions. And we’ll bet that come fall the same skirts will be sported over tights and a variety of boots. Consider this next on your would-be shopping list for seasonless versatility.
