Summer Staple

There are certain things that are uniquely summer, flip flops, popsicles, the hum of lawn mowers, the smell of sunscreen mingled with chlorine and denim skirts. I grew up spending summers running around in a denim skirt and still to this day consider it an essential must have for my summer wardrobe.

Denim skirts are perfect for summer because they can be thrown on over a swimsuit or worn with a silk halter and wedges for a late night dinner on the patio. Denim skirts are simple, chic, timeless and versatile not to mention cool and flattering. When the heat is sweltering pants and capris seem too hot and if your legs are not up to par shorts are not a good option but you can always throw on a denim skirt thus hiding your thighs while keeping you cool. I recently added an amazing new skirt to my wardrobe courtesy of True Religion. It’s longer length paired with a raw edge hem and signature True Religion pockets make it oh so hip and casual and sure to become a summer staple. Available at www.truereligionbrandjeans.com.

Top Ten Trends For Fall-Full Skirts

The weather outside reminds me summer is still in full swing and has no plans in the immediate future to head on out but the inside of stores are starting to show signs of fall. This fall it seemed like designers could not make up their minds on particular silhouettes so they gave us many options, allowing us to choose what we want to wear. Here are my top ten trends for fall that you will want to add to your closet.

Let me start with the skirt, skirts will be big for fall. After seasons and seasons of the dress being the must have item, designers turned to the skirt to help plump their bottom lines. Pencil skirts remain always popular but full skirts stole the show and are a fun item to wear. Full skirts are the ultimate feminine silhouette and look great paired with tights and ankle boots or sexy heels. Wear them with a chunky sweater, cropped jacket or sleek, fitted button down shirt.
