I Want to Be Wearing That: An Asymmetrical Maxi Skirt and Mules
Maxi skirts are coming back, and never have I wanted one more. Only problem? I still have yet to settle on a favorite. But when I scrolled by La Veste designer Blanca Miró's outfit on Instagram, I knew what style I was looking for. There's something about an asymmetrical silhouette that draws attention straight to the shoes. While I secretly think this will help me appear taller, I've also been collecting some top-notch sandals for the Summer, and it's tough to show them off when you're wearing palazzo pants and a tank.
I love Blanca's combination of a deep purple bottom (her leather version is by Solace London) and earth-toned accessories, like these Maryam Nassir Zadeh beaded mules. Add on a rainbow belt, a snake print bag, and chunky tortoise lenses, and this outfit becomes eclectic. That's the type of 'grammable, going out look I strive for this season. While you could opt for a standard, floor-sweeping maxi that gives way to your heels when you walk, I say kill two birds with one stone and wear both standout items at once, allowing them to balance each other out and be admired by passersbys equally.
