It cannot be denied that wearing shorts and pants are extremely comfortable. But there's something lacking in these bottoms that only a skirt can satisfy---the power to look sweet and dainty. With the range of options available now, skirts are no longer just girly-girl items of clothing, they now also cater to fit a wide range of styles---from that sweet girl-next-door-look to a quaint monochrome OOTD.


So if you're looking to stock up on these wardrobe mainstays, here are 5 must-have skirt styles you need to have.

Printed Skirt

It was back in 2013 when printed skirts came to be and they have maintained their status until now because more and more designers are incorporating art into their fabrics. A design of a printed skirt can range from floral, to abstract, to patterns, or even to a tribute to Star Wars. Simply put---there are so many prints out there that fit every fashionista's personality. So add a dash of fun to your wardrobe by stocking up on a range of printed skirts.

Midi-skirt

If you're not comfortable with a mini-skirt but don't like a full-length one either, then the midi- skirt is for you! Whether it's body-con or flowy, a midi-skirt is the classiest choice of them all. They look great when paired with heels and a simple top. 



Circle Skirt

The circle skirt accentuates a woman's body pretty well---tight on the waist and circular at the bottom, giving you an hourglass figure. Pair it with a fitted top, or tuck it in to balance out the shape. 



Maxi Skirt

Contrary to popular belief, a full-length skirt looks good on both tall and petite girls. Get one with slits on both sides if you want to flaunt your legs, or a buy an ombre-coloured one for summer vacations, or get a floral-printed one for that carefree, hippie vibe.



Mini skirt

Living in this region means there are more sunny days than cold ones, so it totally make sense that the current crowd favourite is the mini-skirt. It's length is fun to style and is a good substitute to the short-shorts everyone is wearing. A mini-skirt can be denim, plaid, asymmetrical, or suede. If you need a good middle-ground, opt for skorts---a mix of a skirt and a short, which makes going mini less daunting and more comfortable.

Chinese New Year is one of the biggest celebrations we look forward to every year. In honour of the new year, most opt to wear new clothes to celebrate the birth of fresh, new energy. While the colour combination of Red and Gold has been a mainstay in Chinese New Year fashion, if you're tired of the usual colour combination, here are 3 outfits you can wear!


--------------------------

Classy Blue Dress


(Get The Look Here: Dress, Bag, Shoes)


Blue has been quoted as one of the 5 lucky colours to wear this New Year because it symbolizes the Feng Shui water element. For this particular light blue dress from River Island one can expect "harmonious expansion and gentle growth" (yes we did our research!) and it perfectly complements this earth-toned, bejewelled clutch from Natasha Couture. Cap it off with this floral heel from Alloy Apparel for added colour.

Dainty Skirt and Top

For more intimate celebrations, opt for something sweet and dainty such as this skirt and top combination from ASOS and SheInside. Pink is actually a lucky colour for those who belong to the Ox and Rooster zodiac signs. The pink in the Juni bagand Lipsy peep-toe shoes would also add more luck to your year.



Sparkling Dress and Heels

Attract the luck and prosperity once more in this sparkling metallic dress from Forever 21. We love that it's bodycon and has an asymmetrical cut and knot at the waist to make it look unique. The blue clutch from Patrizia Pepe Sara and heels by Marc Jacobs perfectly complement it as well, making it a great wear for Chinese New Year parties that last the whole night.
