The new skirt/dress trend and how to wear it

The new skirt / dress trend

Every season there's at least one ridiculous trend that gets picked up by bloggers. Socks and sandals? Yup, that was the last one. Now it's all about the skirt over dresses - and it's not as impractical as you might think. I'm one of those girls that don't like to whack my legs out all the time, but a good skirt does crop up on the blog every so often when I'm in the mood. Example: above. I've had this shirt dress in my wardrobe for a few months now but sometimes find it difficult to style - it's not quite long, not quite short. But alas, this new hybrid of skirt-come-dress is giving my Motel beauty a brand new lease of life. Silly trend? I like to think of it as smart layering.
