Fashion trends, as most people know, are incredibly cyclical. The climbing hemlines of the late '60s are reappearing in 2015 thanks to designers like Saint Laurent, and I couldn't be happier. It's not that I'm a huge fan of my legs, but I find the shorter cuts flattering and lengthening, whereas the trendy midi- and maxi-skirts of the last few seasons seemed to dwarf my figure.
Earlier this week I took a vintage suede mini out of my closet, a garment I usually wore in the winter over thick black tights, and decided it was ready for a Summer appearance. To ease a bit of my discomfort over showing so much skin, I wore sheer, printed tights, which left me feeling a bit more covered up but still stylish.
With a vintage floral crop top, Ferragamo flats and A.J. Morgan sunglasses, I was feelin' swell. I headed out to a NXNE show here in Toronto and ended up meeting Wreckless Eric! All in all, a pretty successful outfit/evening.
Are you guys into the miniskirt trend or will you be steering clear?
In the meantime, let's check out what you wore last week. I talked a lot about nail art, and you guys didn't disappoint in your own nail pics. Zap Rowsdower blew my mind with her adorable self-created manicure and fresh, Summery outfit. I wish I had your nail painting skills!
Those nails ...
... matching those sandals!
I'm also loving Madelin's approach to the blues - throw on a gown and frolic around the house. That smile is infectious, and she looks fabulous!
Now I can't wait to see what you've been wearing this week. Have an awesome weekend, everyone, and be sure to snap plenty of outfit photos!
