When I was a university student in the Philippines, I used to shop on consignment shops. I was a scholar with very little money but I didn´t let my situation compromise my style. Most products sold in those shops were relief goods from abroad. I especially loved shopping for skirts there because I got to acquire unique styles, something that other girls couldn´t find at the mall.
I had this cobalt blue trumpet skirt which I loved wearing with cap sleeve tops, tucked in of course, and sneakers. One of the girls in my class commented on my outfit, “are you going to a dance?” Seven years later I´ve eventually forgiven her for asking me that, she became a bridesmaid to my wedding. That´s how memorable this flared skirt is to me, but I love the style. If you want to know how to rock this spring trend, see how to wear the trumpet skirt.
