It happens every year. The temps drop and the hemlines quickly follow. Make covering up exciting with a bold print. Pair your skirt with a crop top until it starts to really get cold, then transition into a fitted button-up. Just avoid baggy tops at all costs. Contrasting these full skirts with something a little tighter gives you a figure-flattering silhouette that harkens back to the Swinging ‘50s. Which one makes you want to go dancing?
