Tracy Reese Skirt ($90)

I don’t usually advocate for the hi-lo hem, but I keep looking at the skirt.  I think the more structured, bell shape gives it a tailored look.  I also like the higher waist as an alternative to the traditional cut.

Not feeling the hi lo, but want a black skirt that’s not a pencil?  Try a flared cut or perhaps, a full midi-skirt.  Some pleats might also be nice.  Maybe a slit skirt is right up your alley– side-slit for the conservative woman and front slit for something more daring.  Or try a tulip shape for a fuller skirt that still has a bit of sleekness to it.

Plus size? This flare skirt and this pleated skirt are both good options.  Petite? I like the flared band on this skirt or this inexpensive full skirt.

    I’m not generally a fan of something as uber trendy as the hi-lo, but I like this one. It’s subtle and flattering.

    Agreed. That is really pretty.

    I agree 100% with Belle’s assessment! Gorgeous skirt with that lovely bell shape.

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.
