Ankle Length Stripped Skirt

Fashion Friday 
It’s that time of the week again; time to get your fabulous fashion fix before you head into the weekend. Every Friday Short Presents features a fashion and beauty related blog post, from inspirational outfit ideas to in-depth look at trends spotted directly on the runway. I read a lot of fashion blogs, and watch a lot of Fashion Television and I just write about when I like what I see. Today’s Fashion Friday look of the day is an ankle length stripped skirt

So you may have seen some of the these photos already; but at Short Presents we are all about recycling. I wanted to take the opportunity to talk about this little skirt for a minute. I am head over heels in love, and not because it’s super nautical and cute, but because I don’t think I’ve ever been so comfortable. Which is saying a lot because I will tell you that I ate an enormous amount of sushi the night these photos were taken. 

For evidence see this post: 

Initially I wasn’t sure about the skirt, I could hear Stacy London in my head screaming “YOU DON”T WEAR HORIZONTAL STRIPES ACROSS YOUR MIDDLE!”. Since I had like 20 minutes to spare for shopping, I was shopping alone, and so I didn’t even have an honest friend to be like “OH No No No!!” I asked the sales associate, she has the coolest bangs, so I totally trusted her fashion sense, and bought the skirt. 

Now there are some things you should know about wearing a skirt like this: 
(a) don’t buy it too tight, the stripes will be a wonky and make your butt look lopsided (not cute). 
(b) you shouldn’t wear a flat shoe, you need something to bring you up off the ground even just a little. 
(c) don’t over do it with accessories, the skirt is bold, so make sure everything else is simple.
(d) wear a necklace or something in your ears to help bring the eyes up, so that the focus isn’t only the skirt. 

Happy Friday,
