10 Trending, Flattering, Wear-with-Everything Bias-Cut Skirts Under $100
Say hello to your new favorite piece, 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, to create clothing that curves, hugs and drapes more elegantly than a straight-cut piece of cloth. In a skirt, the net result is that your rear end looks a little shapelier, your waist a little trimmer and your legs a little longer.
Although the style was innovated by French couturier Madeleine Vionnet in the 1920s, the look is totally timeless—and bias-cut skirts work with everything from military boots to ladylike heels. Here are ten of our favorites, all for less than $100.
