The Slip Skirt: One Piece, Two Ways #1

Hi! With the craziness of fashion week and then my online magazine release (have you seen it yet?) I am a little behind on “One Piece, Two Ways” for September. So, we are just going to have two of these this month. 🙃 Today and tomorrow’s post is all about how to style a slip skirt.

I asked on Instagram back in August what you’d want to see styled two ways, and a handful of you asked for my take on something you could wear now and later as the seasons transition. Thanks for the brilliant idea!

Okay, here’s how to style a slip skirt for now. Check back tomorrow to see how I cozy it up for later.

I discovered the brand Lioness in early September; they are an Australian fashion brand. The stuff on their actual site is hit or miss, but Shopbop has a nicely curated selection of their pieces. Most of their stuff is right around $100, including this navy satin skirt that’s only $72. 

There’s no secret that I love a skirt and sneaker combo, so I styled the skirt here for what I would wear for every day. This is for those weird, “not summer, but not fall” days where it’s not too hot but not cold enough for pants. I love this look for a weekday when you want to look cute but also be comfy (hence the sneaks). It’s also perfect for the weekend and a casual lunch.

I bought these Veja sneakers earlier this year; they’re the perfect crisp white and they go with everything! FYI: at first they are a little stiff but over time they softened up. They’ve lasted all day multiple days in NYC without any irritation or blisters.

But back to the star of this show, the skirt! I’m 5’4” and you can see that it hits me just perfect; no hemming needed. It’s super comfy with a hidden zip on the side, so you don’t have to worry about an elastic band that gets too tight over time. Navy is a great “goes with everything” color. It’s perfect with lighter shades as well as darker tones once we’re really in the thick of autumn.

To finish this easy look I topped it off with a plain t-shirt from Madewell (this one doesn’t stretch out!) and a denim jacket.
