The weather is getting warmer, and it is once again time to re-vamp the wardrobe. The good thing about preparing for spring is the fact that you can show some leg — finally!

After many months of cold, leg-baring fashions are in!

This season will be full of exciting options to do just that. In fact, there is one particular trend you can get very excited about.

Say goodbye to layers and hello to shape. The classic 50s, shape-enhancing full skirt will be all the rage. Having some umph in the skirt will be a must-have.

It is hard to go wrong with a classic fitted bodice and fuller skirt. This look been popping up on the red carpet quite a bit (for many years, actually), and I’m sure that it will be a big contender in the upcoming fashion shows. And why not? It is a sure way to feel classy and feminine!

The best part about dresses is their versatility. They can be worn to parties or for a day in the park. Of course some are a bit dressier and made to be shown off more, but adding a simple cardigan or different shoe can give you an entirely different look.

Not feeling quite so tame? Not a problem. With the influence of rocker-chic, it is easy to put a new spin on an old classic. The results are a bit spicier and still sophisticated! With hemlines shorter than the traditional 50s style, the look is revved up.

The best thing about dresses is they can be worn on the red carpet or at a picnic, with the deciding factor as simple as a hair-do or accessories. If you want something a bit more casual and just as glam, think about soft florals or bright solids. Keeping the feminine, full cut of the skirt is what makes the look!

Go ahead and be flirty and feminine this season!
