You can wear a skirt. ├ôr you can wear a Skirt. According to that last part, it’s best to watch the trick at fashion masterminds like Lanvin, Rodarte, Fendi, Prabal Gurung and Acne Studios. All that counts for this winter is complex shapes, perfect silhouettes, asymmetrical lines and multilayering (even better: 3D-layering). Mixing different textures and fabrics; (metallic)leather, feathers or suede. Even skirt over pants is making its comeback in the fashion arena (the ‘skant’- how 90’s!), as seen at big boys such as Dries van Noten and Givenchy. Skirts ain’t the holy property for the good girls in school any more. Nor the bad girls exploring the night life. We can all play this game, even at the office or when attending Christmas dinner at the in-laws (perhaps not the mini-skirt though). Choose your style and it’s gonna be a hell of a lot of fun this season.
