As the weather warms up, shorts and skirts are my go-to pieces. I believe that a woman can never have too many of either, especially as the outfit possibilities are endless.
J.Crew is one of my favorite brands for virtually everything. I profiled their Fall 2011 collection and what to buy from the brand for Spring, but Net-A-Porter has also partnered with the brand, bringing all of us fans basic pieces as well as exclusives that you cannot find on J.Crew’s website or in the brand’s stores. One of my favorite new pieces is the Gaby Cotton Blend Lace Skirt. It is so easy and stylish and can be worn year-round. The skirt can also be dressed up or down for work, weekends or nights out.
I love the idea of mixing high and low and the lace lends itself to high-fashion pairings. Here is how you can wear it for Spring.
I love Christian Louboutin shoes (like every woman on earth), but his handbags are equally as exquisite. His Mini Loubi Satin Clutch ($695) is perfect for evening and the crystal shoe clasp makes it all the more darling. Stefano Pilati just gets it and Yves Saint Laurent’s Cotton Silk Knit Open Back Blouse ($1450) is flawless: a statement-maker no matter what you pair it with. Vionnet is one of my favorite brands and you will be wearing the Ankle Strap Satin Pumps ($650) for seasons to come.
J.Crew’s Gaby Cotton Blend Lace Skirt retails for just $98 so you won’t break the bank by buying it. Visit www.net-a-porter.com to purchase.
