For Teen Vogue’s wardrobe remix contest, I chose a Sally Scott full circle skirt. It’s one of those magical pieces that I immediately loved on its own, but what makes it even more special is that it was a gift from Marlena—one of my wonderful pals from down under.

I took Dave Matthews seriously when he said, “hike up your skirt a little more.” You can pull long skirts up to your chest and sport them as a dress instead. Try belting it to add a little more shape.

Look 2: trapeze swinger
Same skirt-worn-as-a-dress trick, except in a trapeze silhouette—it’s most forgiving on days when you’re feeling bloated. Also, did somebody say all you can eat buffet? Bring it on.

Look 3: skirting the issue
Of course sometimes a skirt is best worn as such. I like the idea of balancing out the demure length and fancy style of this one by pairing it with a casual cropped sweatshirt.
