Diane Von Furstenberg makes gorgeous dresses but her skirts are equally wonderful. I have a black, brown, and white DVF skirts. The marta is a great classic. Has a good length. If you want a bit shorter go with the cougarette. Even though you can’t see it well in the pics the seams are very very figure flattering. So if you need a basic skirt you really can’t go wrong with a DVF skirt. They are my favorite with fit. Sometimes you may want to go up a size with DVF.
