Whether you’ve got a hot date or you’re planning to meet up with a few friends for a post-work girls’ night out, this season is all about winning pieces that work with your wardrobe—and busy life! So, why not sport a printed midi-skirt (still this season’s most on-trend length to rock), a surefire way to add just enough attitude to a normal nine-to-five ensemble? Just pair your pick with a voluminous top, some versatile ankle boots, and a super-glossy mane worthy of Kate Middleton, and you’ll be springing around SoCal in serious style.
