Lets face it ladies, we all have tons of skirts in the closet gathering dust.  I decided to sway a bit from the hot trends of 2009 to do a mini-piece on the good ‘ol skirt.  They’re perfect all summer and spring PLUS they’re always in style, year in and year out.

Wear It:

For the FIRST time in Fashion For Jane history, a web link on a couple sites must go first: (the best skirts for your shape) and

Harpers (how to wear it guide for skirts)

Skirts are versatile and flexible but you need to pay attention to your body type to be sure the skirt is perfect for you! Since there are so many differences in our body types, leading by example is a great way to find a skirt for you.  Check out either of those two sites to see what skirts work best for you.

Depending on the style and shape, you can dress ’em up or down; they can hide the unwanted, make you look taller, shorter, and a plethora of other illusions.  Get out of that pants habit and change it up a bit ladies!  Skirts can be more flattering than pants!

Find It:

Some of this years best skirts can be found at:

Abercrombie – Great plaid prairie skirts

Lacoste – Supplies the best pleated skirts

Victoria’s Secret – tons of great skirts in all styles – VS is always flattering! – Unique styles, unique patterns

See It:

Casual & simple for summer…

Dressier A-line…

Patterned full skirt…

Prairie skirt…
