BluGirl's khaki straight short skirt is super summery and easy, and is $94.50 at Anastasia.com. However, a narrow short skirt is NOT going to hide ANY sins. (So pair it with Spanx.)
L.A. Designer Karen Zambos' short striped skirt is a real summer romper-- perfect for those ninety degree plus days. Its $187.00 at Couture Candy. But it is SHORT. Good for beachy vacations.
I LOVE Redoute's flirty double tiered black short skirt, which is stretchy and has two tiers of ruffles-- this one can be paired with black or colored or grey tights in the winter, boots and a big sweater. And check THIS-- its only $7.99, marked down from $29.99. Do not let this one go!!!
If you want to go for that tutu Carrie-Sex-in-the-City look, you might want to order a skirt off a dance web site. Aida has $57.00 dancer skirts that, when worn with just a black vest and a fedora, will look much more low-key than if paired with anything with sequins. Leave the sequins for the prom, please.
If you want to up the ante and get a little more designery, I suggest The M Missoni ribbed cable short skirt in strips of dark and light blue, with a little rainbow thrown in for good measure. The great news about Missoni knit skirts is that you can bend, fold and hike them so you can shift the length to your mood of the day, which means in the winter, they will look great with high boots. $325 at French Corner Soho.
Every girl, particularly those under 35, must own a short denim skirt. Its almost like an insurance policy for a summer day. You can wear it over your bathing suit, pair with leggings, or wear a t-shirt dress over it.The Hudson Bliss Double Slit Short Skirt- which will even work on casual dates is a steal at $60 at The Hip Chick.
If you want a dressier short skirt for the office and I think thats fine in the summer but NOT if youre a lawyer (remember Ally McBeals skirt length issues?) just be careful to wear the A.B.Lambdin straight black short tight skirt with low heels or flats, and a crisp jacket or sweater or you WILL be Mariah Carey. Its $49 at A.B. Lambdin and looks almost as hot as Mariahs Dolce ones. Oh, OKAY, wear it with heels if you MUST but only at night, PLEASE!!!! Gwyneth you can wear it with anything. Even On the Coldplay tour this summer.
