Last fall we were all about the mullet skirt – a perfect mix of mini and maxi. While we are fans of clothing (and a lifestyle) that incorporates work with play it’s always fun to try a new trend.
Enter: The wrap skirt.
Traditionally, wrap skirts equal suburban moms or tropical island vacations but we promise this modern take is far from either of those. Swear! The front panel of the classic style has been dropped a few inches to add an asymmetrical edge. A minor tweak with MAJOR results.
Whatever your personal brand of style – preppy, fashion-forward, or boho – we think you can still pull off this emerging trend. It’s all about the material and details. For a professional setting, go with a longer, pencil length in a solid color. Pair with a blouse, pumps, and ladylike jacket for the perfect fall office ensemble. If it’s a date night look you’re going for – one word – LEATHER. Snap up a mini in the season’s it-fabric for a drool-inducing look that will bring all the boys to the yard.
Have fun with this one! Poke around for options with exposed zippers, colorblocking, and metallic touches. The cut is flattering on just about everyone so we think this is one trend that will be around for quite awhile.
