You'd be hard pressed to find anything more charming than a statement skirt this spring. Sure, there are statement necklaces galore, and blouses and dresses, in their numerous variations, all have something special to offer. Right now, though, is all about the skirt - the flippy, effortless piece that adds punch to basic tops and ever-reliable heels.
Statement, indeed. This mixed agenda Elie Tahari Cindy Skirt ($182.99) is a sexy stunner that somehow manages to pass muster in the workplace thanks to its understated color palette. A vivid stroke of black along the side calls attention to the piece, while the sassy snake print ensures its timelessness.
Style tip: Bright colors, vivid embellishments and fun patterns are fabulous to sport all season long - and well into summer, too. Wear these skirts as the focal point of your ensemble and keep the rest low key. A basic tank or tee topped with a bold necklace makes a phenomenal partner for any of these skirts. Or nix the necklace and load up your arm with a variety of multi-sized bangles for a cool, polished look.
