A treasury of denim skirts


Here’s a nice long pencil skirt with a generous slit so that you can actually walk in it.

A high-waisted number with really clean lines.

I like the flowiness of this skirt, and also that it’s such a good washed-out grey.

Here’s a 100% cotton skirt, for those of you who can’t abide stretch.


This one is more feminine than most denim skirts, and is nicely voluminous.

A white denim skirt from Universal Standard, which means is comes in just about every size imaginable.

The asymmetric business here is a cool—and still pretty subtle—touch.

Just a pencil skirt in a nice clean wash.

I like the raw hem on this one.

I like the exposed buttons here.

This A line skirt is very nearly perfect, and I dig the slightly lower waistline.

Another nice A-line skirt with cute patch pockets.

Here’s the most polished one of the bunch.




Dresses with grown-up hemlines, spring edition


I am so ready to get out of my jeans and sweats and throw on an easy, cool dress, and it’s quickly turning warm enough to do just that. Here’s a simple and really pretty number from Vince.

This has a great hippie girl print, but the dress itself has a slightly more sophisticated cut than most hippie girl dresses.

I do love a good chevron print, and this dress has such a spiff, clean cut.

As you may know, I don’t typically like tiered dresses too much, but this one has such graceful lines.

This adorable gingham shirtdress is so sweet and feminine.

And so is this pretty floral confection.

I like the slightly off-kilter polka dots on this cool dress, and the ever-so-slightly puffy shoulder.

This has a sweet and dreamy retroish feel.

I love the look of this one—so perfect and slouchy, with a great little print—and it idles in my shopping cart even as I type.

The sculpted waistline here is a nice touch.

A lightweight gauze dress that flows really nicely.

A cute and flattering striped shirtdress.

I dig the abstractness of this animal print, and the silhouette is really nice.

A pretty straightforward tee dress with slightly puffy sleeves.

The embroidered Mexican details here look handmade.

I like how dressed-down this one is.

I think the cuffed sleeve here adds a nice amount of polish to an easy dress.

I love a white dress, and the fact that this one has such a nice deep neckline.

A very cheap and easy dress that I could see wearing all summer long.
