With summer behind us and fall just around the corner, we had to share the best cooler weather trend to help you transition seamlessly this new season. We like to call it “prairie vintage,” a beautiful mash-up of country-inspired florals, embroidery, and patchwork that gives any look that down-to-earth, hometown feel. Alex is a huge fan of this trend in particular because it evokes a soft femininity while also being bold and modern.
In our search, we fell in love with this floral maxi skirt by Saloni. Not only does it feature a super flowy midi silhouette, but it also has a gorgeous velvet fabrication and fall’s hottest colors: jewel tones. A daring piece? Yes. Does it make a statement? Absolutely! That’s what makes this trend fun, so be adventurous while also keeping your personal style in mind.
Wondering what to wear a statement piece like this one with? We’re glad you asked. Since it’s already such a focal point of the look, we decided to amp it up a bit with a red top–the ultimate “it” color of the season. To complete the look, we chose a neutral shoe and a navy velvet handbag to match the skirt.
Michael’s Styling Tip: We’ve said his multiple times, but it bears repeating: don’t be afraid to wear a midi length skirt (no matter your height). It is an airy piece that works well in all climates, and even though may be longer on others, this tailored and feminine piece will be great to wear for multiple occasions. And yes make a statement in it!
