I think we’ve been out in front of the New York Times on this one, my friends: skirts are versatile, fashionable, and fun to wear. There’s a lengthy article here about the many joys of skirts. Go through the slide show too, if you can; the offerings are beautiful to see, if rather pricey.
As the article points out, and I heartily agree: a skirt is “a lively way to recharge a wardrobe and give a vigorous kick-start to spring.”
Fortunately, the length of our skirts is not a huge issue anymore: “We spent so much time wondering which length or trend would dominate,” [trend forecaster Catherine] Moellering said. “Would mid-calf skirts mean anything? Would the maxi gain traction? Would it be a high waist or low, a pencil or an A-line?” Such questions, in retrospect, seem meaningless, she said. “The answer is yes, to all of the above.” Yay!
Skirts do take more thought and care to style, says young fashionista Miranda Berman: “You can’t throw on a skirt the way you do a dress,” she said. “You have to really think about putting together an outfit. When you get it right, it looks like you’ve made an effort, like you care about fashion,” she said. “Skirts are a statement for sure.”
I couldn’t imagine my closet without at least a half-dozen great skirts, from my beat-up denim to the silky floral to my pleated maxi. Are you also a cutting edge fashionista, who’s discovered the wonders of the humble skirt? : >
