Skirts for Fall: The Long and Short of the Trends
The cooler months of autumn may tempt you to hide your gams with jeans, but there's no reason to do that.
Stylists insist fall is the perfect time to show off your leg. And with so many seasonal trends designed to enhance your personal style, it’s difficult not to look runway-ready this autumn.
“The classic pencil skirt is being updated for fall in a higher rise and a straight column-like silhouette, which is much more forgiving than (older) curve-hugging versions,” reveals Sidney Morgan-Petro, retail editor at Stylesight.com. “Skirts are shifting back to higher rises, allowing popular crop tops to be worn throughout the fall season for just a hint of ‘rib-drift.'”
Celebrity stylist Anthony Henderson also says it's all about purchasing the proper size for your body. And when it doubt, pay a visit to your tailor for a custom fit.
“When looking for the right skirt this fall, you should find one that is the right length for you,” says Henderson. “Size and length are so important. For some fabulous stores at any price point, check out H&M, Forever 21, and Macy’s.”
