Old Navy Denim Pencil Skirt
clothes Sunday, July 13, 2008
Sometimes fashion is so focused on the next big thing--the little-known designer about to hit the stratosphere, the It bag of the season, or the hot trend in shoes--that it's easy to forget about the classic standby pieces upon which a wardrobe is built. Thankfully, Old Navy hasn't forgotten that fashionistas still need flattering, affordable basics they'll wear season after season. I can't wait to see what their New American Classics collection looks like in-store.
In the meantime, check out this great dark denim pencil skirt priced at $26.50. A bit of back story to explain my admiration of such a basic piece: Years ago, I found a knee-length asymmetrical hem skirt in dark wash denim in Chinatown for next to nothing. It has since formed the basis of many outfits. When it's cold, I wear it with tights or leggings and my black leather boots. When it's warm, I throw it on with a colourful tee and some strappy flat sandals. For going out, it looks great with a low-cut black top and some platform heels. Ah, the virtues of the humble knee-length denim skirt!
