I may be a hardcore skirt fanatic—a fact that places me squarely in the minority here at Lucky—but when it comes to shopping for my favorite clothing staple, I definitely have a type. My collection consists of primarily A-line numbers from the likes of J.Crew, Opening Ceremony and Carven, either solid-hued or covered with a subtle floral or stripe—in short, the sort of skirts that can be paired with pretty much any tuck-in-able top, from a cashmere crewneck to a classic silk button-down. Three cheers for versatility!
The 50 statement-making pieces in the slideshow above, on the other hand, are serious show pieces in every sense. They’re certainly not cheap (most hover somewhere in the four-figure range), nor can they be worn to a corporate job interview or to weekend brunch (unless you’re brunching with, say, Anna Dello Russo—in which case, where’s my invitation?), but they’re too stunning not to share. From a feathered Gucci beauty that costs almost as much as a car (!) to a zippered leather Saint Laurent that has Alexa Chung‘s name written all over it, these skirts aren’t just guaranteed street style bait—they’re virtually museum-worthy. Click through above, and dare to dream.
