The Skirt That Slipped Into My Fashion Universe


Sometimes when you blink and open your eyes you can see something you never noticed before. This is sort of what happened to me with the slip skirt trend! There I was, minding my own business when bam like a bolt of lightening everyone had one on in leopard print or a close cousin print from the animal kingdom and was looking fresh and fabulous. The best part about the whole idea is that there are hundreds of ways to style this item with things you already own in your closet. I have found myself living in mine running to and from meetings and feeling like I’ve found a summer uniform that makes sense. Here are a few reasons to buy an animal printed midi slip skirt right now. 

  1. You can buy this trend for under $100.00 easily. My favorite one is from Aqua available at Bloomingdales and is the one I’m wearing in these photos! I’m also including additional ones that I love below.

2. You can wear the slip skirt everywhere! Work, date night, brunch on Sunday and of course walking the dog...the options are limitless because the midi length makes it infinitely appropriate. It’s also slightly dressy in fabrication and has a slight sheen to it which is why it’s extra cool to style it back to causal elements like a tee or a sneaker. 

3. You can wear a midi slip skirt with ANY shoe from sneakers to mules to heels. You decide if you want to be casual, dressy or somewhere in between. Think of this skirt as a canvas upon which to accessorize and style up or down. 

4. This skirt is the perfect answer to global warming. No matter what the weather forecast has in store this skirt makes sense for summer because it’s lightweight and thin but NOT sheer.

5. Your top options are also plentiful. *Knotting* a simple white or black tee is a new fashion idea and looks perfect with this look. If you don’t want to expel any more fashion energy buy a pre knotted tee shirt available pretty much everywhere! If a basic tee feels #basic, you can make the look rock and roll with a band tee shirt or even a neon tee in yellow or pink. If you feel the impulse to bare a little midriff you can buy a more cropped “meet and greet” style tee or crop top.  Last but not least- looks chic with bodysuits!

Here are just a few images that made me run to the nearest store to grab one. I love this trend so much that I dedicated a whole look to it in my summer trends segment for E! News airing this Thursday July 5th at 7 pm nationwide!!
