Why do we wear clothes? To protect from the elements. To show our status. To elevate our mood. Or to hide from the world.
Every now and then I’ll find a piece that makes everything more fun. I wish it would be all the time, but it’s actually quite rare. Last week, upon my regular visits to The Real Real, I found a red crepe Miu Miu skirt with the tags still on it for $75. Of course, as a fan of Miu Miu, of the color red, and of midi skirts, I had to, had to, had to get it. Yes, I said “had to” three times. Lately I’ve become a great fan of crepe, it’s sturdy, yet moves quite nicely. This circle skirt has a special way of swinging when I walk. Which makes is more fun to galavant around.
Of course styling it is quite easy since I’ve bared down my wardrobe to a few colors. Pairing red with navy loafers and an indigo chambray top makes this the perfect summer outfit. Yes, of course it’s slightly minimal, but I actually feel quite elegant with all the skirt swinging. If you can even call a swingy skirt elegant that is.
