when i spied this cute botanical a-line skirt from Talbots, i knew a striped tee would be the perfect companion. the muted colors (india Ink, ivory, imperial blue, shocking pink, coral reef and dry sage) will transition beautifully from summer to fall. what i love most about a brightly patterned skirt is that you can easily change the outfit by changing the top. with a wide range of colors to choose from the options are endless. but i do love t-shirts, especially during the hot summer months. a bateau neckline is a flattering choice for most body types as it elongates the neck and shoulders.
Talbots is known for turning out summer skirts with fun colorful patterns and bright prints. and i snag one or two every year. again, an a-line silhouette is a flattering choice for most women as the shape is designed to thin the appearance of the hips. it’s narrow at the waist then widens towards the hem creating the shape of the letter A. this timeless classic was introduced by Christian Dior in the mid-fifties and has stood the test of time due to its simple and unfussy nature.
