I certainly don’t think modesty is the only way to dress – but it’s my way. I chose Judaism as my religion and I choose the skirt as my hero piece. A discreet(er) aesthetic rooted in steadfast belief and personal inspiration. Hence, when a mainstream trend surfaces catering to conservative dress code, I am always enthusiastic to pass along the sartorial tidbit.
Last week, Vogue’s Maria Ward announced “Katie Holmes Nails the New Skirt Length for Fall” in an article detailing the actress’ getup at the Tribeca Chanel Women’s Filmmaker Program’s annual luncheon. Holmes’ stepped out in “the label’s season-perfect take on the printed skirt,” mused Ward.
Paired tailored knit and pointed pump, Holmes’ ensemble was refined and wearable, heralding the calf-skimming hem a notable fixture in autumnal wardrobe. Joining Karl in his case for the covered-knee, label’s Gucci, Valentino, and Chloé (to name a standout few) showcased the Fall 2016 trend in a myriad of multi-styled designs.
Both sophisticated and edgy, this classic-come-current length “gracefully toes the line somewhere between a midi and maxi” feeling part Audrey Hepburn, part Rihanna with the swap of embroidered cape or puffer coat. “Clearly, this is the new look of ladies who lunch,” the Vogue contributor concluded.
We’ll take your lunch and raise you a breakfast at Tiffany’s and dinner downtown, Miss Ward. Yet another reason to employee the modern skirt – AM to PM, work to weekend.
