No longer overly fussy or feminine, the skirt shows its status as a truly versatile wardrobe player. Pleated midi-length skirts in wool, crepe, and silk advance a modern femininity, while asymmetric wrap-style skirts evoke irreverence. Recalling sixties subcultures are miniskirts and A-line silhouettes in denim and patent leather. Textural wool and tweed styles in heritage herringbone and check patterns call up collegiate spirit. Semi-sheer tulle and lace skirts lend themselves to avant-garde layering, with fitted stretch knit pencil skirts suiting pared-down styling.
