Both looks make use of layering with print and texture. When styling the skirt, don't be afraid to juxtapose casual with dressy elements to add personality to the ensemble. For the dressy look, be bold by pairing a bomber jacket in a vibrant print with sequins, but keep the accessories minimal so the focus remains on the clothes. For the casual look, flat sneakers in lace-up and slip-on styles are especially on-trend this spring, and they pair well with dressy skirts for a look that's equal parts polished and sporty.
