This so-called “skirt of the season” is sure to become as synonymous with Summer 2014 as the Zara skort was last summer. Why? It’s cool, different AND still wearable. I’m pretty sure Helmut Lang was first to launch the style – I remember seeing it a while back at TNT and liked it a lot, but couldn’t bring myself to spend $150 on something made out of jersey. I forgot all about it until a trip to Costa Rica last summer. My friend Caroline brought a version of the skirt that she had bought from Urban Outfitters; naturally, I had to try it on and ended up loving it so much that I wore it more than her that week. It’s a super hot butt flattering cut, but not scandalous because of the partial-coverage. So happy I finally got my hands on one!
