New York Street Beat: Skirting The Issue


Slim is in.

But while celebs like Kim Kardashian and Rihanna have been seen shimmying about in Herve Leger the scene from the street is full, fun, and decidedly more feminine. These two ladies, both spotted in SoHo, represent an effortless chic style that is equally at ease in town or in the country.

We love how both let the skirt take center stage while keeping other accessories simple. Kim’s (left) statement necklace is in the same tone as her top, so it doesn’t compete with that bold graphic skirt from H&M. India’s (right) Steve Madden slides and Kate Spade bag are delightfully unfussy and elegant, lending a Grace Kelly air of sophistication.

I definitely like this batter. More feminine, less man-eater, more casual-chic.

Ah, now I'm kicking myself for not picking up that H&M Marimekko skirt. They both look great. xx
