While I boast a lovely collection of skirts in all cuts, colors and feels (houndstooth, polka dot, linen, tweed pencils, and cotton a-line being some of my favorites), it’s not quite complete because this tropical floral pencil skirt by Pearl stopped me dead in my tracks while browsing through ASOS – I’ve just got to have it! This print takes me to a place full of beach-side nightlife, cabanas, warm nights, mojitos, mai tais, pina coladas, and the faint scent of cigars and saltwater in the air. Whether adorned with solid black or white, or played up by any of the supporting colors like the lovely pinks, oranges, greens and sky blues, I think this skirt is a must for any tropical getaway, or just a festive night out on the town.

If there is one color I think you should pull to the front of your closet this year, it’s orange. Not only is it my favorite color in general, the more red-orange and tangerine shade is going to be the trendy color of 2012, according to the Pantone Color Institute. And if you’ve followed this blog for some time, you know we have a soft spot for dresses with sexy cutouts and inserts (as seen here, here, and here). That said, I can’t help but love this hot bodycon mini dress by David Lerner. The bright poppy shade is gorgeously off-set by the, very carefully placed, nude inserts along the sides under the bust. Instead of always highlighting my jewelry, shoes, or makeup, I think I have finally found the perfectly bright and bold statement dress to wear out.
