STYLE GURU STYLE: Rework Your Summer Skirt

January 18th, 2016 at 2:00am

Warmer winter weather in the northeast had me excited to break out some skirts. My look is inspired by one of my favorite runway shows, Marc Jacobs fall 2015 ready-to-wear collection. The collection features pleated skirts of all different muted hues and fabrics. One look that stood out to me was this floral pleated dress. I absolutely loved the patterning and ’50s feel of the length and silhouette.

When it comes to dresses and skirts, I find myself mostly reaching towards neutral and darker tones. So when I saw this skirt at Brooklyn Industries I knew it would fit right in with my wardrobe. This skirt has the pleats and floral patterns that I fell in love with from the Marc Jacobs collection; plus, it has these awesome pockets on the side. Who doesn’t love convenient pockets in skirts?

To stick with the 1950s style silhouette included in the collection, I paired the skirt with a black dolman top. The openness of the top makes this outfit super comfortable and breathable.

As far as shoes and accessories go, I completed my look with a pair of heels and a vintage Ted Lapidus envelope clutch that my grandmother gave to me. My grandmother and I bond over our love of fashion and its classics. She taught me that every Fashionista must have a few select “special” pieces in her collection.

Even though the holiday season may be “over” I feel that wintertime is a great excuse to dress more formally. The clutch also goes along with the looks that inspired me from the ready-to-wear collection.
