The most feminine wardrobe piece, the skirt, is the real protagonist of the fall winter collections.
The only rule to follow when you wear it is the length: the mini-skirt still enjoys an occasional outing, but the newest skirt is knee-length or even calf-skimming. Legs are even more alluring when they’re not shown off, as the Hermes’ woman demonstrates.
The trendiest skirts are casual, and mix perfectly with flats and a knit, as seen on the Sportmax catwalk: the box pleats give the new length a breezy charm, while sheer and leather inserts add to their youthful appeal.
The full swirls designed by Rochas among others and inspired by the petticoats of a Fifties dress, reflect the ladylike retro glamour.
