Black skirts can easily be associated with authoritative, conservative office wear that’s why I probably never owned one since I’m neither authoritative nor conservative. Enter sheer, and now even the longest of black skirts can scream romantic and sexy, and not in a leather grunge kind of way. I have elevated this black skirt from wardrobe staple to must-have, stat. Please excuse my early onset forgetfulness if I have already mentioned my discovery of the ease in separates-dressing. I was always drawn to dresses, because I preferred how easy it was to pick an outfit by making just one decision, but separates have proved to be easy decisions plus versatile. This David Koma skirt on a mannequin drew me right into the Owen boutique in Meatpacking District, NYC, with its amazing volume, swinging asymmetric hemline and partly sheer fabric.
I find it appropriate that today, with the promise of warmer weather, I post this outfit. Don’t get me wrong when we shot this outfit, it was painfully cold, as evidenced by the goosebumps on my legs, but hey, it was a labor of love. Well, hopefully, you enjoy the skirt’s lavish details because both Maya and I suffered from frostbite and confused glances from strangers while shooting.
Have a fantastic week!!
