What kind of jacket should you wear with a snap front mini skirt?
I recommend a short quilted zip front jacket option. All you need now: a fun crop top and hot wedge platform sandals.
On the bottom, wide skirts complement a short, boxy jackets: this front snaps skirt gets an update with an adorable scalloped hem.
Adding texture- in Burberry Brit fall jacket- lifts the look into multiple-compliment territory. To look dapper keep the jewelry accessories minimal. Squared-off flat handbag or clutch should telegraph smart elegance. Low heel mules would be another great option but with a skirt, stick to higher wedge platforms.
For Jamie's make up: Definitely less is more! And our precious model gets away with using very little. Because of her luminous skin, we stick with earthy tones: gold, brown, caramel, bronze.
With each shoot, she just gets prettier.
Don't you agree that these Loewe sunglasses make this look noticeably more interesting? Black and blue make wonderful wardrobe builders; they're easy to mix and match, and they're especially stylish when you stir in a little rusty gold details or a touch of darker metallic blue like the Whistles clutch.
Splurge only on standouts since you'll be using them all season long.
Knock-down, to die-for perfection.
Mother's Day is almost here! Here are our picks for Spring's must-have necklaces. These beauties will be a nice additions to your Spring celebrations and of course perfect gifts to our lovely mothers!
For sexy moms conscious of their feminity, a flower of red-hot beauty elegances this necklace from Mahavir in India. This flowery pendant speckled with garnet stones that radiate like bright residues, forms a splendid contrast when styled with black turtle neck and blue jeans.
For young, perhaps still a bit naïve and girlish moms. Provoking with their innocence, they are beautiful and fascinating, consciously expressing their personality. This M. Haskell for Inc is perfect, it syndicates gorgeous oranges with stunning pink and looks fabulous with gold-tone mixed metallic dresses or tops.
For inspiring and creative moms who like to make bold statements with eye-catching accessories.
Perhaps she is a bohemian mom who likes to mix her styles and likes dynamic jewelry. Display a lustrous iridescence and metallic rainbow luster, flashing all the colors of the rainbow with your flowery top and skinny jeans.
If your mom prefers paisley, flowery prints and lightness in her outfits, this colorful Shh by Sadie Rocked Up crystal quarts necklace shouts freedom, boho and luxe of effortless beauty.
For moms with timeless, classic sense of style but who are also not afraid of sharp, deep colors and simple forms, we picked this precious stone pendant. One pear-cut iridescent green emerald gemstone would make the perfect mother’s day gift.
A chic jean jacket is the mini's perfect partner.
End of Summer's higher-than-ever hemlines are the new fashion favorites for the girl who's on the go. When going super short, replace the mile-high stiletto with chic flats- there are plenty to choose from this season.
This is also a perfect season to start your private collection of bracelets, bangles and cuffs.
Your everyday bag-downsized to a perfectly portable purse or clutch-in wear-with-everything neutral.
For the next few weeks you can still pair your gladiator natural leather sandals with skinny pants or a casual mini skirt like the one Jamie is wearing on the photos.
On the weekends, keep it simple and sporty with basic tees, knits and denim jackets. With a sexy mini at night, a looser top will keep the proportions right.
It's a very body-conscious look, yet the mini skirt can be very flattering. Making it work depends on color- prints can be a really great choice- and other elements of your outfit.

The skirt of the season has reached new heights- and whether it's scandalously skintight, flouncy and flirty, or slim and sophisticated, there's a suitable style for everyone.
HOW TO WEAR IT IN YOUR 20S
Keep the concept of mini relative: In your 20s, a traffic-stopping suede mini, graphic tank top and easy silhouette Italian wool coat are perfect for brave fashion followers. Bold but totally acceptable. Just remember you must feel comfortable with the length. If you feel as if you're baring too much, then most likely you are.

HOW TO WEAR IT IN YOUR 30S
Those in their 30s can still go short-short- depending on whether it's for day, night, work, or weekend. The shorter the skirt, the lower the heel.
HOW TO WEAR IT IN YOUR 40S
Okay in your 40s you are most likely thinking an inch or two above the knee but on rare occasions it is absolutely allowed, especially to those who do not want to hide their legs just yet, to put on a flirty, textured mini and kitten heels to dress it up a bit. Especially when there is no cleavage involved, and the blouse is not fitted. Sexy and elegant.
HOW TO WEAR IT IN YOUR 50S
In your 50s you can pair pumps or heeled sandals with just-above-the knee skirt for a more sophisticated look. Obviously you don't always have to look like a librarian but it is a very flattering look. If you wear loafers or flat shoes you can easily rise your hemline an inch or two above your knees.
HOW TO WEAR IT IN YOUR 60S
In their 60s+ it is safe to say women should stick to clean and simple just above the knee skirts in a conservative solid color or black and white patterns, but I am also a fan of dark florals and tweed pastels. I find that mature women who do go for brighter colors and busier patterns are fearless fashionistas no matter what age.
HOW TO WEAR IT If YOU ARE CURVY
For the more curvy and top-heavy, a bright-colored or single breasted in beige or cream color skirt with a neutral or black shirt creates the proper balance
HOW TO WEAR IT If YOU ARE BOTTOM-HEAVY
A fuller-figured woman, especially if she is bottom-heavy, should wear a more A-line skirt and pair it with a simple top, like a button-down shirt or blouse, keeping the colors dark for slimmer silhouette.
HOW TO WEAR IT If YOU ARE SLIM-HIPPED
A slim-hipped woman should pick a mini with a bit of a flair and pair it with a wispy top, nipped in slightly at the waist to create curves.
Celebrate February with stripes on your hips. Intimidated by this look's graphic boldness? With so many different patterns and textures out there, it’s easy to find one that makes you feel sexy, not silly.
If you are really stripe-shy but feel better in flowery prints you can try this look featuring Thalia Sodi Floral-Stripe Scuba Pencil Skirt. Mix the unexpected! It adds a pop of pattern to your look with a bold black-and-white print enhanced with blooming flowers!
If you’re comfortable wearing stripes try this color block , glam look. Opt for multicolor cotton-silk blend striped skirt with a subtle feminine accent like a silk scarf.
If you’re after high drama, try this sexy, slim-fitting skirt. The secret to this look? Mix in your dramatic stripes with your funky stuff.
