Montreal Fashion Jobs – The Winter Skirt


Wearing a black power skirt every time you’re trousers are in the wash can get a little… well, boring. This winter, try a whimsical look and opt for a long flowy maxi skirt instead. Mary-Kate and Ashley have been rocking this romantic, boho inspired trend since their early days – proof that the look has no height requirement. Although the look originally caught fire this summer, you can easily transform summer’s floor length wonders into winter staples. Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors and Ralph Lauren all went long for their fall 2011 RTW collections. Simply look for long skirts in darker colours (brown, burnt orange, mustard yellow, army green, navy) and winter-friendly fabrics like suede, cotton, velour, and denim.
