Attached to the top of a skirt, or the bottom of a shirt, this piece adds hippy drama, highlights the waist, and requires little effort elsewhere.  Despite the intimidating extra fabric at the hips, a flattering fit is possible by opting for a more relaxed straight skirt instead of a figure hugging pencil silhouette.
