I love a full skirt. They’re the only kind of skirts I own, mostly because of their ability nip in an imaginary waist and create the illusion of hips on my mostly straight frame. They’re dramatic, forgiving and timeless, and the black-and-white splatter of this Tibi Printed Silk Gazar Skirt had me at the proverbial “hello.” Me being me, though, I had to find a way to put a motorcycle jacket with it, and that’s exactly what I did in our latest installment of Outfit of the Week.
When I looked at the skirt and the white Proenza Schouler moto together, even I, being notoriously color-averse, knew it needed to brighten up a little bit. A little bit of cobalt blue sneaking out from under the jacket didn’t seem like enough, so I went whole-hog on the primary colors with Lanvin shoes in a ladylike shape to match the mood of the skirt and a bright red Saint Laurent bag. Finish the whole thing off from a hyper-neutral mani from Deborah Lippmann and a classic watch from Shinola, an amazing company whose timepieces are all hand-assembled in Detroit.
