Trend Alert: Perky Little Tulip Skirts Blossom For Spring

We had no idea when we offered a tulip skirt as an inexpensive alternative to a Louis Vuitton number, that pretty soon they'd be sprouting up all over the place. Though we must add, we're happily lusting over the new silhouette that Alexander Wang and 3.1 Phillip Lim presented for resort as well. Part wrap dress, part toga-inspired, the new cut is shaping up to be the next big-little trend.
