The next time we need an A-line skirt with three-quarter-length sleeves or opaque tights, we know where to go. British singer/songwriter Adele, whose second studio album 21 will launch on Feb. 22 (it came out in the UK on Jan. 24), has an affliction to the classic pieces. But it’s a good thing—the twirly dresses and trendy leggings look great on her curvy physique! We love how this redheaded soul crooner, whose sound is said to be inspired by Etta James and Ella Fitzgerald, often teams her frocks with flirty flats, knee-length toppers and cute updos/ponytails. But what do you think? Do you like Adele’s signature look?
