we all got the message that midi is the new mini this fall/winter season, with Prada pioneering the granny chic and LV recycling the 50s. I'm noticing, however, a somewhat different micro trend: high-wasted flared mini skirts are being adopted by celebrities, Fashion Week goers and what is much more telling: there is a flared skirts galore at Zara this month! I got a piece of the action just the other day and snagged a gorgeous flared LBD and black flared skirt at Zara. I love the fact that this girly look is for summer and winter. I'll be wearing my skirt with chunky knits, black tights, t-shirts, vests...you name it!
