Having filled our closet with a season's worth of amazing pants, we're turning our attention to skirts. With feminine but easy-to-wear silhouettes on the brain, we have our eye out for cozy maxis; curve-hugging pencil skirts to take us to the office; leather; and a few surprises, like an embellished mini for date night. We narrowed down the endless options to our favorite styles at a variety of prices. Before you click to shop, keep in mind these styling tips:
- Think of your maxi skirt as an alternative to pants and jeans this season. Find one in a great fit and versatile fabric (jersey is ideal) that you can live in all season, topped with jackets and vests, and finished with your favorite boots and booties.
- Invest in a leather skirt — leather was a major trend for Fall 2011. Plus, it's an easy way to go day to night, weekday to weekend all season.
- Look for skirts with special details, like draping, a fresh print, or silky finish, and let the skirt become your statement piece.
