If we had to pick a trend for 2016, taking your inspiration from the seventies, there’s one item that you have been seeing everywhere at the moment. Its shape is A-line and its style is button-front, and as a skirt, it’s hard to beat for practicality and versatility. Everyone’s talking about button down A-line skirts, they’re our absolute girl crush of the season! In corduroy, this mini skirt is a must for the style.
The skirt is a variation on a basic, but is most definitely a statement pieces, so it’s best styled back with simple t-shirts and sweaters. With a longer length, instantly add leg factor by unbuttoning a few from the bottom to create a haphazard split detail. Reference the 70’s with some boho strappy shoes and fringe accessories, or update this retro style by pairing it up with modern tailoring and clean lines.
The button front skirt is having a bit of a moment thanks to the 70’s trend this season as well as denim being a must have in every girls wardrobe. A button-down denim skirt is not a fashion item, but a wardrobe staple as it’s appropriate for any age. So this season we will see a lot of button down skirts in denim and suede. Lucky for us there’s a lot of choice in stores right now.
