Digital Studio A-Line 01 of 06 A-LINE Maria Valentino/MCV Photo HOW TO WEAR IT This classic skirt flaunts an early-'60s attitude, and the polished daytime look is ever-appropriate.But our A-line obsession is rooted in the universally flattering, hip-and-thigh disguising shape that lets us have our cake and eat it too. And for that, it will always have a place in our closet. HOW TO WEAR ITThere's a prim, clean-scrubbed vibe to these skirts. So add a fitted little jacket or a basic belt, and carry a structured bag. And while it may be tempting to slip on a pair of flats, these skirts, especially those that fall below the knee, beg for the height of a ladylike heel.
