skirting the issue part deux: mix, don't match

Take three skirts, three jackets, three tops: toss about randomly, then wear (one of each darlings..obviously) In other words: mix, don't  match. Perfect for anyone who loves lying in bed until the last minute. The mustard yellow Derek Lam skirt is absolutely fabulous.

 A short less puffy version of bomber jackets are back and the waists on skirts have risen this season. Good if you have a waist. (If you don't, don't despair. Carry on wearing/buying low rises - they will always be available) Among the comeback kids are jeans shirts. If you kept yours from the 80's, you're a star, if not, worth investing in and keeping until you are 80. All ladies look fab in denim.

This season it's about mixing not matching: strong contrary patterns and textures love each other. We love them too.
