Broomstick skirt: a great pick for summer

The crinckled-look has been in fashion for long, and apart from skirts, is also seen on tunics, stoles and ethnic dupattas. When stored in a closet, these are not ironed, but rolled like a wool ball and then kept away to keep the broomstick-effect intact.

Style it right
The broomstick skirt is a great pick for summer. When heading out for a breakfast date, pick a floor-length broomstick skirt in a candyfloss pink or a delicious canary yellow and pair it with a plain white tunic top for the perfect boho-chic look. Avoid looking too casual by accessorising.

Ditch the plain ’ol, rainbow-hued wooden bangles and complement your look with a cute earcuff, stacked rings or a statement metal ankle-cuff. A broomstick skirt does not really qualify for a formal, business look. Nevertheless, you can experiment by pairing it with a crisp, collared-shirt.
