I like the way the lines and draping of these pieces look like waves, curvy and fluid.

I will say, though, that this skirt and a supercool pair of Helmut Lang pants I scored at more than 50% off have proven themselves tricky to style. When a garment’s point of interest is just below the waistband, you’ve gotta pick your tops carefully or you obscure the best bits. This skirt actually has an exposed elastic waistband, so tucking isn’t even an option! (I’ve tried.) But it’s comfy and elegant and works nicely with this Alternative top and a few others I’ve already got, so it’s definitely sticking around. read more
