Diversity Chic | Skirting the Rules

Have y’all missed Diversity Chic as much as I have? I’ve been ITCHING to do this post since we came up with the theme and I’m so glad it’s here! In case you missed our first few installments of Diversity Chic (is this number five already?!), here’s what we’re all about:

Diversity Chic is a collaboration of Dallas bloggers showcasing current fashion trends on a variety of skin tones, hair colors, body types and heights. Each month we will feature a new trend tailored to our personalities and style.

Our focus is to explore the world of fashion in its unique, diverse, and stylish manner – one trend at a time.

This month, we’re featuring the ultra feminine silhouette that’s perfect for ANY body type…the A Line skirt. As you can see, they come in all kinds of patterns and colors and I’m crazy about every single one of them. You can see some of my past outfits featuring A-Line skirts here, here, here and here.

The best part about A-Lines (besides the fact that they universally flatter every body type by accentuating the smallest part of the body) is you can dress them up or down as much as you want, depending on the occasion! Graphic T, printed blouse (like Stephanie rocked), chambray shirt, tank top, fitted t shirt (Sevi even worked some pattern mixing in), sleeveless button down (bonus points if you tie it like Jordan)…you name it, it works with an A-Line. I would say the only “rule” with A-lines is you want to make sure the waist is defined. If you wear an untucked flowy shirt, you’re going to look larger since the skirt is flowy. Tuck or tie your top and you’re good to go!

Shirt: Cents of Style ($15ish; similar; similar; similar for less than $10!) | Skirt: Poppy and Dot ($31; similar; similar) | Shoes: DSW ($20; similar; similar) | Necklace, earrings and bracelet: Rocksbox ($19/month, use code valerybrennanxoxo for a free month!)
