Styling tip: A formal skirt actually looks very cool with a white T-shirt and a pair of Converse. And of course, you can also keep it dressy--go with a pair of red pumps and a plain black top for an easy, polished look.

Planning a country weekend? No? Well, even if your destination is an urban one, we think that everyone should have this skirt because it's so breezy and cool. Pair it with either sleek, all-black pieces, a tucked-in button-down or a casual tee.
