5 Affordable, Cute Skirts

Time to take off your pants and kick up your heels! In skirts, I mean. Sheesh. We found five great picks for spring -- all $35 or less. Nikkita Floral Skirt, Delia's ($34.50, pictured). This floral mini with a side zipper will break my solid-color rut and get me to wear little flowers!

Ruffle Swiss Mini Skirt, Wet Seal ($18.50). This one combines ruffles (a noted spring trend), layers and a gray-ballerina style that makes me want to spin around at a party.

Recycled Denim Skirt, Repossessed ($27). You need a jean skirt, capiche? Snag a cool, already-broken-in version in this unique etsy shop -- each skirt is one-of-a-kind.

Contrast Trim Linen Skirt, Forever 21 ($16). With pleats and pockets and a satin lining, this linen skirt has the trappings of an expensive piece at a bargain price. It's short, but its swingy shape makes it more playful than provocative.

French Terry Tulip Skirt, Fred Flare ($28). Black skirts are a staple, and this one's unexpected shape (I love waist flair!) and military buttons elevate its style.
