Tulips & Olives

A few months ago I was reading an article classifying the different skirt shapes we see, with a breakdown on body types that each shape looks best on. The tulip skirt was said to be most appealing on women with straight bodies, creating a more hourglass shape á la Dita von Teese. And who wouldn’t want to have her bod? Granted, I already have tiny curves of my own, but that doesn’t mean I am opposed to a little help with definition. This skirt does just that—adds definition. It’s not risqué, but gives just enough for a bit of extra oomph!

The color of the skirt, olive, has become a neutral in the last few seasons. I originally thought that my army jacket would get a couple of wears at the most. However, it is the most well-loved item in my closet and, at the $12 price tag, is practically paying me to wear it. If you haven’t picked up something in this shade, do it ASAP. It will change your life. *insert dramatic magic hands here*

  1. I love this outfit. Army green and maxi-styled skirts have really grown on me. You look beautiful!
