From Saint Laurent’s first tuxedo for women, introducing the idea of menswear for females, society has fought a long journey for simplified dressing, standardized and unisex ready-to-wear outfits. What in grandma’s time was unacceptable dress for a lady, such as pants and structured blazers, has become widely accepted and supported in society now a days.
But even the romantics or preppy skirt-and-tights girls can modernize their outfit by way of accessorizing. This week’s Fashionista did just that by wearing a leather jacket with her frilly skirt.
With spring approaching, pants generally go away and legs come out; skirts and dresses are more common all over campus. Skirts are versatile since there is much to choose from and many ways to complete the look; try either a polka-dot skirt like this one, or you can wish to keep it safe and play with textures rather than prints and colors.
But when wearing skirts, the Blair Waldorf look is not your only option. A little bit of Serena or Jenny Humphrey during her rebellious stage can be fun. Try accessorizing with a leather jacket for example, and who knows, you might like the outcome.
