Bustling With Excitement: The New Skirt Shape

Oscar de la Renta Silk Shibori Skirt, $1290 at Net-a-porter

Elizabeth and James Draped Skirt, $265 at Saks

Perhaps it's the romantic spirit in the air, but I love the idea of experimenting with new skirt shapes. (So much ink has been spilt over the new pant shape that I thought it was high time to address its sister shape, the skirt.) Oscar de la Renta's ornate version playfully adds a side bustle for a dramatic everyday statement, and Elizabeth and James' draped skirt adds some modern romance to one's look. Just be sure to pair the flirty bottom with a quieter top for balance.
