With the crux of last week’s acerbic weather lament behind us, a good thing to consider for the weekend before Thanksgiving is a selection of skirts to challenge the comfort of pants.
If you’re wondering why, I’d like to counter your query with this: why not?
Just take a look at the way Deena Abdulaziz, in a burgundy ankle-length skirt replete with lace and tulle floor-grazing-detailing plods through Paris, compromising not the importance of warmth as evidenced by a complimentary grey sweater but recognizing, too, with the implementation of a pair of sandals, that fashion’s best character trait is the ability to look like you’re headed toward Christmas up top and the Carribbean down below. Wear camp socks if you’d like. Or tell me to stop shoving them down your throat if that’s becoming a point of contention.
Similarly, Yasmin Sewell wears navy blue mohair that looks warm enough to contest the use of a coat-proper but with a softer, albeit louder, yellow silk skirt that seems to suggest a nod in the direction of domestic comfort coupled with femininity. There are sandals here, too, so, uh, camp socks?
Okay, okay. How about a pair of boots? That are flat and ankle length and might compliment a skirt that falls just below the shin to carry you through the weekend? If you’re feeling particularly jazzy, I might recommend the kind of embellishment that makes your front side look a little like that of an emu’s. Then again, though, if you’re just looking for comfort in the familiar and ease in the department of style, I get it. I just also wonder why Jenna Lyons’ case for feathers hasn’t rubbed off on you?
And in the event you’ve been laying on your side, supporting your upright head with the same side’s arm and lifting your legs up and down, up and down, side to side, bent and straight, shake what classic pilates training has bequeathed you. Make like Alexa Chung, keep it short, source some tights and throw yourself, gluts first, into the distance.
I’ll see you at Karaoke.
