Colorblocked Panel Skirt - Splurge or Steal for November 2012

Designers and retailers are loving the colorblocked panel look for fall and winter 2012. The easy-to-wear colorblocked panel skirt consists of a pencil skirt with vertical side panels of one color and center panels of another color. When the side panels are black or another dark color, and the center panels are lighter or patterned, the effect can be very slimming. Certainly the fact that the panels in this style of colorblocked skirt are vertical is a big plus for short women because vertical lines help make petites look taller and slimmer.

How to Wear a Colorblocked Panel Skirt for Petites

  • Wear a colorblocked panel skirt with tights and shoes that match the side panels.
  • Wear a colorblocked panel skirt with tights and shoes that match the center panels.
