fall edit: below-the-knee skirts


Among the new, trendy silhouettes to wear this fall, I want a knee-length skirt the most. Celine's Phoebe Philo is single handedly responsible for this. The backbone of her Fall 2013 collection were elegantly flared skirts. Fitted at the waist, they had a retro undertone, but paired with boxy turtlenecks, they looked thoroughly chic and modern. Added bonus: they're incredibly flattering. As Celine's version will likely break the bank, I'm considering these lovelies from Stella McCartney, Tory Burch, and Topshop. And I am planning to put my longer pencil skirts into consistant rotation, too. I just think they look so right for fall, especially these ones from J.Crew and Asos. Styling-wise, I will finish off these skirts with one of fall's chunky heeled ankle boots or a no-fail classic pump

Last year you featured blue velvet pants from mango that I loved but were sold out. I love the blue velvet skirt pictured. Can you tell me who it's from?

I believe the skirt is by Celine (past season). Love...

I am trying to find a blouse similar to the blouse shown with this black flared skirt. Can you tell me the brand or a similar brand to look for?

Thank you!
