Fashion Fundamentals: Skirts Over Pants

I have always been a fan of Madonna’s music and style. It’s true that her style is always evolving, but because she is so fearless with it, I can usually look at a current trend and trace it back to her. Like skirts over pants. I love this look and live for it. My first memory of this look is from Madonna.

I read an interview of hers once where she said she was just poor and practical and those were the clothes she could afford at the time. Just goes to show, you don’t need to spend lots of money on style…Madonna created trends with jelly bracelets, everything lace and, of course, skirts over pants/leggings.

There are so many reasons why I love this look. First of all, layering is always a good idea. Second, it is ageless; toddlers and mature ladies can rock it. Best of all, though, it’s just a fun look. Here are some recent looks I found while perusing the 2015 designer collections.
