Q. I really love the full skirt trend for fall but thus far, have been challenged to find affordable renditions of Louis Vuitton's gorgeous silk and wool skirts. Any suggestions for finding wallet-friendly skirts and for keeping the look a bit more modern than '50s?
A. Calf-grazing skirts ruled the Louis Vuitton runway for fall, as well as several other designers' shows. Long and full, there is most definitely a '50s influence to this skirt style. To give the look a modern spin, pair it with a simple, minimal top, or a sharp fitted jacket. Pumps, kitten heels or even flats are the ladylike shoe of choice to finish the look. Be sure to choose a hem length that flatters your leg, showing off the slimmest part of your calf and ankle.
Here are some budget friendly long full skirts to try this season:
