While wonderfully demure midi skirts and '70s-inspired minis will always have a place in our hearts, we're all about the wrap skirt for spring. Think of it as a pencil skirt, but with a playful—and completely wearable—twist, thanks to the cool asymmetric hemline that the wrap-style silhouette creates. And clearly, the the wrap skirt is rapidly gaining momentum, if the street-style set has any say on the subject.
Case in point: Alexa Chung who hit the fall/winter 2016 shows during Fashion Month in a sophisticated navy wrap-style piece that she gave a preppy spin with a ruffled blue button-down and a gray sweater (draped over her shoulders). And because she's Alexa Chung, she gave her look an offbeat edge with a novelty clutch and patent zip-up boots.
