Trendwatch // Full Skirts

I’m sure some of you may be shaking your heads right now, but I’m totally smitten with this chica’s look!  I have a history with headpieces (specifically turbans!), love a great statement necklace (or two!) and have been dying to try this flouncy midi-skirt trend for myself.

I’m still trying to decide exactly how I’ll style it up, so I’ve been looking for a little inspiration around the web, and can’t wait to ask Miss Anna Cottrell of Tulip Louise (our Pepperologie Fashion Expert) what she thinks during the Q&A of her session next week!  If even one tiny little smidgen of her stunning style (or sweetness!) rubs off on me, I’ll be a happy gal.  :) Very excited to hear what she has to say about the trends that will be big for summer and how we can style them up for ourselves. 

Ok, now – BACK to the skirts… keep reading for a few more inspiration photos and check out the shoppable options I’ve included for you below! 

Keeping things simple and chic, Blair does blocky stripes on top and a burst of bold neon color on the bottom.  Black pumps and minimal jewelry help her pull it off while staying just as sophisticated as always.

This one is a little too bundled up for the coming season, but the funky mixed prints and mirrored shades could stay for summer, and then you could swap in a simple white tee instead of that cozy sweatshirt as it gets warmer!

A quirky mixture of sugary sweet gingham and a military-inspired jacket, paired with a graphic tee and sexy heels, provides a nice balance and keeps things from looking over the top.

Which look above is your favorite??  Have you tried the trend for yourself, yet?  I’m still trying to decide if that pretty little plaid number below needs to come live with me for a while. :)

        I love this trend! Full midi’s are so girly and cute!! But I’m short so I’m always hesitant to purchase one.

      2. Heels definitely seem like the best way to pull this off if you’re on the shorter side, and I’m also thinking that opting for a high waist would help with the proportions as well!

      3. 1. Atlantic-Pacific was the first fashion blog I ever followed. It’s magnificent. She always looks so chic.

        3. I’m loving the skirt in the first picture but also the turban-like headdress. It’s such a statement! :)

        love,

      4. They all pull the skirts off so nicely. But I think this style looks better on tall girls. If I wear it, I think the dress will swallow me :P Love the first outfit the best!
