Do you have the must have items for your Spring 2012 wardrobe?

As the warmer Spring and Summer months arrive, many of us get the itch to go shopping and update our wardrobe, replace older pieces of clothing and add new trends to our wardrobe.  As we transition into the warmer months, so too does our wardrobe.  We begin wearing lighter colors and lighter materials to keep cool.  But what are the must have items for Spring 2012?  Do you already have them stashed away in your closet?  

I have put together a list of my top ten essentials for Spring 2012.  My top ten list is based on my research of the many fashion magazines one can refer to as well as my personal opinion of what I, as a consumer would wear.

You can take this list to your closet and see what you already have.  Perhaps you only need a few items, or venture out to buy everything on this list.

What are the different types of skirts?

Here are the basic types of skirts you see in department stores:

Kilt – a plaid wrap around skirt with pleats one side, generally a heavy material held together with a large pin at the hip of the pleated side.

Midi – this skirt’s hemline falls at the wided part of the calf just below the knee and is not too tight

Miniskirt – a miniskirt is a skirts that is several inches above the knee.

Peasant skirt – this skirt is ankle length, full flowing and meant to cover the legs.

Pencil skirt – this type of skirt is tight fighting with a straight line which hugs the hips and thighs and rest just at the knee.  There is usually one open pleat in the back to make walking easier.

Pleated Skirt – pleated skirts are varying lengths and have folds in the fabric all the way around the skirt in a vertical manner.

Poodle skirt – this is a long A-line cut with flow at the bottom of the skirt.  Poodle skirts sit below the knee and above the ankle.
