One day, while visiting with my friend Carrie at Savannah (store in Santa Monica, CA), my eyes landed on this “cutout skirt.” I told her that it was interesting but how would you wear it? She showed me these zebra print leggings that went underneath it, but I made a face of uncertainty. Then she told me to try it with these Peter Cohen silk “pajama” pants. The Pajama look is very “au courant” these days, but I for one have not bought into it. I cannot see myself pushing a grocery cart in silk pajamas or a slip, but many fashionistas love the look.
Peter Cohen’s version is chic, comfy, and extremely wearable. I was sold on the pants all on their own, but doubtful as to how they would look under this skirt. I reluctantly climbed into the skirt, and lo and behold, Carrie was right. In the blink of an eye, the entire outfit went from comfy, and casual to comfy, and hip. The shoes are a statement piece all on their own, but they add a little pizzazz in just the right way.
Sometimes when you put a skirt over pants, you create the unexpected: the exciting intersection where fashion meets art.
