Spring Styling: How to Wear the Wraparound Split Skirt

By  March 07, 2013

With an asymmetrical hem and a split that shows a bit more thigh on one side (subtly, that is. Sorry Angelina Jolie), this season’s wrap skirt is one of the most interesting trends on our radar. For those interested in rocking one this spring, here’s how to wear the standout piece. Skip the ruffled blouse, billowing oxford, or any other type of top boasting a style that would have to compete with the split detailing of the skirt. Instead, go with a cool V-neck tee or solid colored knit sweater. We like how Kate Bosworth tucked a fitted button-front into her wrap skirt from the 2013 Preen collection; a similar blouse would also work. To keep things sleek on the bottom as well, don the piece with bare legs and trendy ankle strap heels to get the same kind of look as Jennifer Lawrence at the Independent Spirit Awards. Gorgeous!
