Charlotte of The Fashion Guitar
Charlotte’s look is ideal for May’s typically ‘inbetween’ weather. When the sun is shining one minute but it’s raining the next, layers are key to nailing practical fashion. Style your black midi leather skirt with an oversized knit or cocoon-silhouette sweater to create a head-to-toe futuristic oversized look and finish your outfit with a versatile pair of chunky-heel black ankle boots. This is a timeless style with a distinctly contemporary edge that will get heads turning whatever the weather.
Céline Prefall 2013
Where better to draw your Parisian fashion inspiration than from Phoebe Philo herself ?This look from Céline’s Prefall 2013 collection channels a preppy take on the midi pleated skirt trend, which is effortlessly easy to re-create for Spring. Choose a tight-fitting roll neck top or sweater to create that cinched waist silhouette and add some punky flatform brogues or loafers to top off the look. Stay true to prep style by trading in your roll neck for a light and tight shirt in warmer weather and be sure to button it up to the neck.
New York’s resident socialite is found on almost every front row during fashion month, so if Olivia Palermo is wearing it, you can guarantee that it’s stylish. The look that she’s created with her midi leather skirt is ideal for eveningwear, constituting heavier layers and delicate details. Opt for head-to-toe leather by styling a military-inspired leather jacket with your skirt, and finish your ensemble with some timeless and feminine pointed stiletto court shoes.
