Look for Less: Fit-and-Flare Skirts

Is your basic black A-line skirt looking drab? Upgrade your look with a fit-and-flare skirt. Fit-and-flare skirts are the fun, flirty cousins of A-line skirts, the latter coined by Christian Dior in 1955 (more on that here). Although both skirts styles are known to balance full bottoms, the full, swingy hems found on fit-and-flare skirts also help to slim legs. (Who doesn't want that?!) Treat yourself to Cushnie et Ochs' splurge-worthy fit-and-flare ($695.00, or snag the same style for less with BCBGMAXAZRIA's version ($98.00,
S.S.W. Asks: Which skirt would YOU choose?

I love them! Flattering and versatile, as you can dress them up or down as you please. My kind of fashion piece! ;) Xo,
