Full On {A-Line Brocade}

by Caroline Fabacher


I am so in love with the full skirts of the season. They're a little bit Mad Men-esque, a whole lot ladylike, and, unlike most trends, very easy to incorporate into your workwear rotation. This ASOS find was just too perfect to pass up - brocade with gold thread, camo-print, and  the full shape, with pretty pleats that make your waist all the tinier.

While this shape flatters all body shapes, keep in mind that sometimes these midi-skirts can look a bit frumpy on those who are more petite. But that doesn't mean those less long-of-leg should rule this stye out - it is nothing a quick chat with a tailor and a new hemline can't fix!

This post is the first of two this week that will feature this fabulous skirt. Soon, I'll be showing you how it works just as well for a casual day around town and for a date night as it does for the office. Once you discover how truly versatile this shape is you'll be convinced you need to try this trend.
