Silk maxi skirts, dresses, and flowy pants were massive summer 2012 trends. With summer passed and well into the fall season now, we want to make sure that you don’t pack away your flowy, silk garments until next summer! Celebrity stylist, Rachel Zoe, is a huge advocate of the floor grazing skirt – rocking it on herself, styling it on her clients, and even showing it in the Rachel Zoe fall 2012 and spring 2013 runway collections. Rachel’s stylish ways of transitioning silk maxi skirts, dresses, and pants for fall is so inspirational!
Her popular “Vanessa” silk twill maxi skirt has become a celeb favorite for its flowiness and up-to-there high slit that gives the otherwise modest skirt the sex appeal of its much shorter counterparts. In general, a high slit maxi skirt is incredibly versatile and can be worn as a casual day-to-day look with a moto or biker jacket over a hoody, as a date look with a boxy crop top and ankle booties, or even for a black tie event with a tailored tuxedo jacket and high heels for a fresh take on the tuxedo suit.
Rachel’s favorite way to transition her silk maxi skirt is to add a blazer – especially if it’s leather! Other fabulous transition items to pair with the high slit maxi skirt for fall include knit tops, chunky sweaters, faux fur jackets, and tailored jackets. By adding some layers, this summer look can transition flawlessly into the fall and winter seasons. Money well spent! Based on what we saw on the runways during New York Fashion Week, the silk maxi skirt will be back again in spring 2013, so look forward to getting a lot of wear out of this stylish wardrobe item!
