Trend: Dress Skirts & T-Shirts

They just might be fashion’s ultimate odd couple. Yet, their high-low love affair feels so right. Chances are you already have both pieces in your wardrobe. Check out these inspirations and then put the two together!

A plain white tee is the perfect foil to an embellished skirt like stylist Kate Foley’s.

Sophia Loren, is that you?! Nothing feels more feminine than a full skirt.

A pencil silhouette, especially in a striking fabric, works equally well. Here, Atlantic-Pacific blogger Blair Eadie wears a Milly Hologram Leather Edith Skirt ($625), and Madewell Linen Paris Tee ($45).

Have a Trendy Day!

Fine China Prints

They say inspiration can come from anywhere (films, books, music), but today’s trend is derived from an unlikely source: your dining table, and more specifically, your dishware! The striking cobalt blue and white prints spotted on the Valentino and Just Cavalli runways evoke classic Delft china from the Netherlands, featuring florals or farmhouse scenes that have been popular for centuries.

Fine China Print Pieces

Ruffian: Toile de Jouy Blazer ($995) The toile print on this blazer adds an element of charm to a polished sleeveless shell and slim trousers. Diane von Furstenberg: Floral-Print Leather Wallet ($160) The fine china obsession hasn’t escaped accessories. This bold printed wallet is an easy way to work the trend into your repertoire. Keds: Champion Floral Sneakers ($45) in White/Blue. The classic canvas sneaker gets updated with a floral print. Slip on this pair to liven up a t-shirt and skinny blue jeans.
