Skirts are always great additions to your wardrobe. They are easy, feminine separates that if chosen correctly double for work and for play. Also depending on the fabric, they are the perfect transition pieces, taking you from Summer to Fall to Winter effortlessly.
Acne is such a cool brand that I have been admiring for years. The collections are always cutting-edge yet present pieces that can really go into your wardrobe as classics. There is always a mix of femininity and masculinity, thus the styles of every woman are encompassed.
My favorite new piece from Acne is the Romantic Striped Wool Skirt. As a curvy woman, I have to be very careful when it comes to skirts. I love high-waisted silhouettes because they emphasize my small waist and make my legs look longer, which is always a plus. I never go for styles that are too short because they seem wasteful, not allowing me to wear them both in the office and out to parties or events. The Romantic Striped Wool Skirt fits my criteria as it sits higher than a normal skirt and is long enough to wear for work. Though it is in wool and cannot be worn past the 50-degree days of Spring, I do not mind as it will be a wardrobe staple as long as I keep it in good shape.
Here is how you can wear the skirt for Fall:
When it comes to basics, you never have to fear with Velvet. Try the brand’s Alida Top ($75) for the perfect crewneck tee for the season. I have previously had my doubts about Valentino handbags, but the designs of the past year have really changed my mind. For a pop of color, go for the Small Patent Nuage Hobo ($995) in an eye-popping red. There is not a month that goes by without me finding a new pair of Surface to Air shoes to covet. My newest obsessions? The Lace Up Leather Wedge Ankle Boots ($445).
Acne’s Romantic Striped Wool Skirt retails for $480. Visit www.net-a-porter.com to purchase.
