Say hello to your new go-to wardrobe staple, the bias-cut skirt. That technical-sounding description just refers to how the fabric is cut on the diagonal (or bias), rather than parallel to the weave, creating a garment that drapes more elegantly than a straight-cut piece of cloth. The net result is that your rear end looks a little shapelier, your waist a little trimmer and your legs a little longer. Just like our favorite dresses with pockets, we love this style because it pairs well with everything from military boots to cute flip flops. (Bias-cut skirts also look chic worn over a swimsuit for your resort lunch on the patio.) Here are 11 of our favorites, all for less than $100.
