Let me tell you, friends, this jersey knit fringe skirt is super fun to wear. The asymmetric fringe swishes furiously when I walk and does a decent amount of ankle-tickling in the process. I’m hoping it’ll work with boots and sweaters in the fall, too, though all ankle-tickling properties will be lost then.
I’ve been tinkering around with sheer tops and dark bras, trying to find the perfect combo. This top isn’t quite opaque but doesn’t qualify as sheer either, so I might try it with a nude bra instead and see how that looks. This is more of what I’m envisioning, but haven’t found the perfect blouse/bra combo quite yet.
I’ll admit it: I thumbed my nose at athleisure when I first heard about it. Partly because the word sounded so doofy, but also because it seemed like a “trend” that had been engineered by several well-placed athletic-wear companies. Now, though, I must admit that I have been playing around with some sneakers and sweats myself and enjoying the comfy-casual looks they create.
I used to have nothing but fit-and-flare dresses in my closet, but times have changed. Kicky skater dresses were among the first to go, actually, and most of the ones that remain are more A-line than flared. But this cute little number from Fifteen Twenty was hard to resist – love that double-v neckline – and easy enough to toughen up with a slouchy knit moto and some edgy accessories.
