Topshop Lime Pleat Skirt ($60)

While lime may not be your color of choice, I love a pleated skirt for summer.  Granted, this one has a lot of pop, but I thought that this bright and summery hue would be a nice change of pace after a winter full of black clothing.

If you’re not crazy about the lime, I also found this skirt that comes in black and red, this beautiful blue skirt (wide waistband, good for pear-shaped ladies) and this papaya-colored skirt.  All of these choices are under-$100.  Though if you have a bit more to spend, I love this bright orange J.Crew skirt with just a hint of pleating on the side.

Prefer a pattern?  The birds on this skirt are darling.  This bright floral print is beautiful.  And if you’re size 10, I’m jealous that this Derek Lam skirt is on sale in your size—such a great graphic print.

Specialty size?  This fabulous dot print skirt comes in both petites and plus sizes.

    What’s your experience with Asos? I’ve read some pretty bad reviews of their customer service/sizing but their clothes are so cute so I’m torn.

    LL27 – I have purchased a couple of things (tshirt dresses, a purse or 3) from Asos and been very happy with the quality of what I have received.
