Spring Trend :: Structured Maxi Skirt

201204117_NOWthatsaskirt.jpg

Continuing with the spring-theme this week, I bring you a loud pastel striped skirt! This quirky piece was found at my favorite thrift store - Housing Works. I have a feeling it was a homemade piece and was probably used for a play or Broadway show of sorts given the stitching and its tag-less-ness. Finding pieces that were made for a show are sometimes my favorite.... they are guaranteed original, usually really fun fabrics and always a wee-bit over the top..... case in point, this skirt. 

Tip : a key thing to do with something as bold as this skirt is to pair it with a quieter piece. I took inspiration from Jil Sander's looks of last year and paired this skirt with a basic white tee.
