Usually in the fall and winter I rarely wear skirts and dresses. The I’ll do is throw on a sweater dress, tights, and knee boots and keep it moving. I’m trying to break that habit by purchasing more skirts and dresses in heavier fabrics for the fall and winter and that brings me to the quilted skirt.

I remember when I was in elementary school my mom made my brother, sister, and I take our school picture together. I was in 3rd grade and I wore a yellow/gold quilted skirt with a purple shirt with gold buttons. My sister wore the same skirt but with a red shirt and my brother had on some type of shirt to compliment our colors. We looked cute (too bad I don’t have a picture to confirm this) take my word for it lol. We didn’t call them quilted skirts back then, they were called popcorn skirts, but you get the idea.

I felt a little nostalgic as I was looking through my September issue of InStyle Magazine so I had to hunt down some modern options of what I once wore back in elementary school. Here are my picks

Many people shy away from crop tops because of their figure. I once did as well because i don’t feel like I had a “crop top friendly” belly, but with a pair of high-waist shorts or pants, or a high-waist skirts they are now appropriate for those without flat stomachs (yayyyy).

We love or blacks, whites, nudes, and tans as neutrals but have you ever stopped to consider a new addition to the family? I’m talking about rose gold. It’s not something that is just for jewelry anymore. Designers are taking this color and creating beautiful designs for all types of shoes and apparel. This color can be paired with other neutrals like whites, bold colors like turquoise, or even muted pastels. And let’s not forget the great pairing it would make with a spring floral. Take a look at some great options to add to your wardrobe.
