THREE WAYS TO WEAR A MINI SKIRT THIS FALL
October is a great month. The weather is still warm. Pop cultural phenomenons are in full swing and so are we. We stick our noses up at the tights that become second skin in later months. We wear short skirts, and with those short skirts, show the world that we are those kinds of girls who only shave from June to August. So what? What? Only me?
- •Exhibit AHere I am in a short sleeve knit by Miu Miu (any short sleeve knit will work — you can even make your own if you’ve got a pair of scissors) worn over an old men’s Steven Alan button down with a red skirt that thinks it is python but trust me, is not, from River Island. I’m wearing the slingbacks and a pair of Céline sunglasses. Could I have worn in July? Hell no! But in October, legs out and ankles exposed for all the world to bend and snap? Oh yeah.
- •Exhibit BThis is the I’m Not Going to a Holiday Party Party Outfit and features the liquid metallic turtleneck I got from Topshop during the last round of Man on the Shops: The Best of What’s Around worn under a pinstriped vest by Edun. The jacket is Rosie Assoulin (flare sleeves for all!) and the skirt is from All Saints. The ankle socks are also from Topshop while the pumps, white and patent leather, are Manolo Blahnik.
- •Exhibit CIt doesn’t actually exist yet because here is where I plan to crowdsource a request from you. Are there any particular mini skirts in your repertoire that you are trying to figure out how to style?
