Today I am joining Sarah from Sarah London Style, and Kim from Northern California Stye for our Signature Style Series.
This is a post near and dear to my heart. I love skirts. Are you team dress or team skirt? Do you find it harder to create a variety of looks with a dress? I think I prefer the mix-and-match versatility of skirts. They can be worn with different pieces and allow one to be more creative with accessories. I also find they fit my more casual lifestyle. Why choose a skirt? Let’s be honest they are comfortable. Especially the easy, breezy fuller versions. For summer cool cotton and linen versions are are great to beat the heat. I love the pretty block print prairie dresses that are all the rage, but frankly, they just don’t look good on me. I am long-waisted, and most dresses do not fit well. The shirtwaist versions end up under my boobs, and the high-waisted numbers pooch out and make me look like a tub. I keep trying but I have not yet found a flattering version for my physique. The simple answer for me is the midi or maxi skirt that hits at the natural waist with some flare. Let’s take a look at some Skirts you can Wear or Later.
SKIRTS YOU CAN WEAR NOW OR LATER
Those of you who have been reading my blog for a while know that my favorite skirt is the Lily Skirt from CP Shades. This is not a sponsored post. I have never even received product from them. I own the lily skirt in several colors. You can purchase the Lily skirt from CP Shades here I have also found several of mine on Ebay. The lily is pricey but worth every penny in my mind. It is all about the number of wears per item.
Here I am wearing the lily skirt with sandals and a linen shirt for Summer.
The skirt can easily transition into fall by adding some calf hair mules. a turtleneck and a leather jacket.

Here in California, the linen can comfortably be worn in the Fall as well as the Summer. I wore the lily skirt to America’s Mart in Atlanta and was quite comfortable in the heat.
Here I styled the mustard lily skirt with a chambray shirt and a vintage Lucky Jean Jacket for fall.

Another skirt that I own that can easily transition from summer to fall is the Free People Leopard Skirt that is no longer available but you can find on Ebay here.I have also linked a similar version at the bottom of the photos. Here I styled it with a new tee from Anthro, an old gap jean jacket, and olukai flip flops.
For fall I added a turtleneck, moto jacket, and boots.

I also own the lily skirt in a maroon colorway. I have styled it Summer to Fall as well below. For Summer a linen shirt tied at the waist with simple silver jewelry, and my favorite Artemis Design Co mules.
For fall I switched out the linen shirt for Chambray and added some of my American Indian Jewelry.
