 One of the biggest trends for Spring 2011 is the return of the ladylike skirt in mid-calf length. Showing up on runways from Marc by Marc Jacobs to Chloe to Derek Lam, you won’t be able to avoid this retro silhouette in trendy stores this season. This week in SHOP LoveBrownSugar, I’m featuring five different Ladylike Accordion Skirts you'll love. Here's a sample of what's in store:

Feather Light 

Pink Citrus Accordion Skirt, $25
 Light enough to blow gently in the wind yet versatile enough to pair with a lace cami for a night out with the girls, or a structured blouse for more formal occasions. Buy it HERE.

Blue 70's Accordion Skirt, $19
 Get into the 70's style swing of things with patterned skirts that hit just below the knee. Curvy girls - belt them at the waist to accentuate your figure. Buy it HERE

Black Accordion Skirt, $25
If you're more of the classic diva, keep it simple with a style that offers clean lines in a basic color. Easily go from day to night with this silhouette - pairing it with flats for day and stilettos or wedges for night. Buy it HERE.

Styled with: H&M lace top, Vintage necklace, Jeffrey Campbell wedges, Michael Kors watch.

The Ladylike Accordion Skirt shop will close on Thursday, April 7th at 11:59 EST. Click HERE to SHOP LoveBrownSugar!

  1. Oh I love that watermelon skirt!


  2. I find it so hard to find skirts like this that don't look overly matronly on me.


  3. I agree with Courtney. I have seen it on girls and I love it! I'm too short for it and at my age matronly is not what I am going for. It's a little touchy.

  4. Love this trend! I cant wait to get my hand on one!!!


  5. Great idea Christina. Good luck with sales!

  6. OH EM GEE!!!- I can not believe you're selling the coral pleated skirt guy. IT'S GORGEOUS on you!

  7. Great idea! Pleated skirts are a big trend :)

  8. yes love pleated skirts and one bonus to buying the long skirt is you can turn it into a dress by hiking it up and adding a belt. 2 in 1!!!!

  9. loveee the pink one! Are you ever going to post clothes bigger than size 14?
