This picture of Lauren Hutton is one of my favorite inspirational fashion photos of all time: how perfect—and perfectly relaxed—does she look in the simplest of outfits? I’d wear the following skirts just the way she is here: with a button-down, or maybe a tee or tank on really hot days.
This button-front A-line number is slightly `70s in a way that appeals.
I usually don’t like this silhouette—the flouncy bit at the hem—but something about the stiffness of denim makes it hang not so flouncily, and I like it.
I deplore the way this is styled—high tops flatter no one when paired with a skirt—but the asymmetrical zipper here is kind of fun and new wave.
Another bit of asymmetry—this one at the hem—on a very winning skirt.
A sweet pencil skirt with a generous—but not perilous—slit up the back. It’s also pretty well-priced.
This J. Crew skirt has a released hem (yes, I still like released hems) and a slightly shorter length, for those who are perfectly pleased with their legs.
A crisp and office-worthy option from Veronica Beard.
The subtle pin-striping here is a nice touch.
The denim here is delightfully dark, and blessedly free of distressing or whiskering.
