Nothing says cosy autumn outfit more than a good skirt paired with an oversized sweater. Just ask the creatives at Victoria Beckham, Balenciaga and Dior. A combination so effortless you’d wanna throw it on every single day. Paired with boots, trainers or even a pair of shiny loafers. Skirts can be pleated, layered or tulle as long as those XL woolen/cashmere sweaters are super chunky. Long sleeves, high (turtle) necks. Oh and primary colors seem to be a theme here. So will your look be bright and yellow (MSMG), midnight blue (Dior) or red on (a different) red (Victoria Beckham). Just keep it classy and extremely cosy!

Victoria Beckham, Céline, Gucci, Rochas, Jil Sander and Proenza Schouler are all convinced: the midi skirt is the ultimate skirt style for fall. The presented theirs in a variety of shapes, materials and colors. From tailored and bright (Victoria pfizer viagra no prescription Beckham) to pastel shaded (Céline, Rochas), structured (Proenza Schouler) and elegantly printed (Louis Vuitton). Lengths varying from just below the knee to mid calf. Lots of option, so there’s a midi for (just about) everyone. Yet it must be said, this skirt is not the easiest piece of clothing. You don’t want to disappear in it and if possible a little bit of leg should still be on display. Accentuate the waist like Victoria Beckham or go for a boxy kind of silhouette as seen at Rochas. Before you know it you’ve mastered the midi!

Maxi dresses, maxi skirts; they’ve been around in fashion for a while now. But since fashion is always evolving even these maxi pieces are slowly changing. First it was all about the floral prints, then we only had eyes for the pleated skirts and now it’s all about showing some skin. Be fully on trend in a transparent maxi dress or a skirt with a high slit and don’t forget the hi-low trend, which is actually a mix of mini and maxi. Many of the streetstyle sensation in the gallery above master the art of revealing while keeping things classy. Other just look stylish, long and lean in their floor sweeping pieces. Unfortunately it’s not a very practical trend, but it sure makes a up for a beautiful image.

Catwalktrend FW2010: the Olsen-look?

Oh what a waste it will be. Designer skirts and dresses sweeping all over dirty floors and streets. Yet if we believe the grand fashion houses floor-sweeping fashion is certainly going to be a trend.

Especially long skirts for daywear are ‘new’ in fashion. They have this kind of grungy feeling to it and, to be honest, not a lot of people can pull this off.

On the runway the long skirts were very diverse; transparent, sequined, layered and knitted. Quite often they were combined with the most unexpected tops.

D&G combined Norwegian printed knitted sweaters  with transparent floral printed skirts. Marc Jacobs matched his shiny skirts with heavy cable knitted jumpers and Michael Kors & Dries van Noten let their bottoms and tops clash as well.

Glamour meets grunge you could call this look and the Olsen Twins may just have set the trend.

You might have to buy a few extra skirts, cause the bottoms will wear out so soon. But hey, think about all the money you’ll save on shoes. ‘Cause since they won’t be visible you can just wear one of your old pairs.

Trends ss2010: the men’s skirt

The men’s skirt has been all over the news lately. Maybe because fashion brand H&M recently introduced a men’s skirt for their spring/summer collection 2010. And usually when H&M comes up with a trend it is picked up by many followers.

Of course H&M is not the first brand to introduce the men’s skirt. We’ve seen this fashion item on the runway for years. One true lover and wearer of skirts is designer  Marc Jacobs, who takes his bows most of the time dressed in a kilt.

This year there were some skirts in the menswear collections as well. At Thom Browne we spotted an ultra short version, at the show of Jean Paul Gaultier (one of the first designers with skirts for men)  the skirts were much longer. Rick Owens’ models wore multiple layers, one of those layers being the skirt. Other brands which had skirts in their collection were John Galliano, Francisco van Benthum and Kris van Assche.

We’re very curious if the skirt will become the trend for men in 2010.
