Just Flow With It

Now that the NYC weather has finally turned to spring, I have been adorning all things breezy and cool.  This takes me to my newest obsession: midi and maxi length flowy skirts.  These are great pieces to have in your closet because they can be used for spring, summer and well into fall.  You can dress them up for work or go casual for weekend day attire.  What's even better is these skirts look great on every body type since they can be paired with so many different styles.  For someone on the shorter side (aka me) these look perfect with a sky high wedged heel.  For those of you blessed with longer limbs, you too can wear them with wedges, but can also pull off pairing them with a simple flat boho style sandal.  Stores from Forever 21 to Saks are carrying them, so hopefully there is a skirt out there to fit within your budget.  I have purchased most of mine at H&M and Urban Outfitters, all of which have been under $40.  Below are a few of my favorites, as well as a separate collage with some outfit and accessory ideas.  Added bonus: chances are you already own the basic pieces I recommend them to be worn with.  Enjoy!
