Spring 2009 Trend: Fun, Flirty Skirts

So what am I shopping for this week? A fun, flirty skirt. This spring 2009 trend is one I’m definitely embracing.

I’ve always been all about the dress. In the summertime I feel like it’s just too hot to be in jeans all the time. I like my legs to breathe! Plus I love how easy it is to make one garment your entire outfit. But this season’s mini skirts are a welcome change, and just as simple too. Paired with a simple tank or top and some sexy heels, it’s a cute, sassy, easy look.

While some of the season’s skirts are super casual and others are sky-high minis, there’s a fun flirty skirt out there likely to suit just about any gal.

As always, here’s a few of my faves.

brian_reyes_silk_drape_445

Yes, it’s a bright punchy orange color but I adore this Brian Reyes silk drape skirt. You can score it at Intermix, $445.

elizabeth_james_silk_pleated_gray_black_265

This Elizabeth and James silk pleated skirt is short and sassy. If you’re not so much of a hot pink gal, it also comes in gray or black. Intermix, $265.

elizabeth_james_draped_265

A little black skirt is like the little black dress, classy powerful and a must-own. I’m really feeling this Elizabeth and James draped version from shopbop. $265.

ever_high-waist_flirt_skirt_240_intermix

I’ve been a fan of the high-waist for a while now so I’m definitely digging this Ever high-waist flirt skirt from Intermix. With a plain wife beater or tank it’d definitely be super cute. $240.

gryphon_sequin_mini_skirt

I’ll admit, I’m kind of over sequins. And I’ve been extremely hesitant to embrace sequined bottoms at all. But this Gryphon sequin mini is kinda fun. Definitely a night time look and though I’m not sure it’s one I could personally pull off (Tinkerbell green may just not be my color) I could definitely see some other fashionista rocking this out one night.

pencey_lust_skirt_257

This Pencey skirt is called the Lust Skirt and boy what an appropriate name. Exposed zippers are big for spring 2009 and I love how this one shoots right down the middle. Shopbop, $257.

rory_beca_layered_skirt299

For this one, I posted the whole look so you can see how easy it is to style. This Rory Beca layered skirt is super flirty and paired with a simple white top and strappy sandals. It’s sexy and simple to pull together. Shopbop, $299.

sassbide165

I posted this one last because it’s not for the faint of heart. This Sass & Bide mini is sexy to say the least. Only wear if you have legs for days and little to no hips. You’ve been warned. Shopbop, $165.

    Jeez, I bought the cutest skirt awhile back and I’ve never worn it. I totally forgot about it because I didn’t have the right shoes but now I do!

    I love how creative the skirts are, it’s a nice change from the knee-length circle skirt.

  • Kimber says:

    I am all about flirty skirts this spring and summer. And yes I agree so much easier to wear in the heat of summer.

  • Kayla says:

    I looove the first skirt. Not too short and the color and style are adorable. I would look ridiculous in the last black one I definitely do have hips.

  • CupcakeQueen says:

    I love the first skirt. THe color is incredible. I love a skirt with some body to it. I’m also not a sequin lover. I just think they’ll all fall off and the color of that particular skirt is a bit too mermaid-y for my taste.
