It seems that skirts of Little House on the Prairie are hitting the cool radar as fashionable bloggers and street wear icons are rocking vintage and vintage-inspired frocks that hit right below the knee. Your grade school teacher will be jealous, because this once geeky style has instantly become a most-have style option in practically every single style-forward state, from New York to San Francisco. What’s the best way to wear it? A form fitting top and a belt! A waist hugging blouse and belt will ensure that you don’t get lost in all that fabric and look well-dressed instead of frumpy. My favorite thing to pair with below-the-knee skirts are almost skin tight, ruffle button downs and tank tops. You can layer it with a blazer or a sweet cardigan for whatever the weather entails! Avoid looking like a hippie or hobo and swap in your big bags with a cute clutches and slip on a pair of those wooden platforms with gorgeous, out of the ordinary, street credibility. Take a gander at these shin skimming lovelies: Ella Moss Best Friend Pleated Skirt, Twelfth St by Cynthia Vincent Below The Knee Skirt, and Camay Floral Silk Dress.
