When two skirts collide…

Strange_skirts

The most pointless skirt(s) ever? Or a really brilliant way to get you through one of those hard-to-dress-for days? If we were feeling generous, we’d say this Mariella Burani skirt fell into the latter category. After all, we’ve probably all had those days where you’re going straight out after work and don’t have time to change – this caters to both scenarios, giving you an "office" skirt and "party" skirt in one. Genius.

Unfortunately, though, we’re not feeling generous, so this just looks to us like the kind of thing that wouldn’t actually be appropriate wear anywhere.

Whaddya think, folks? The kind of thing you’d pay £230? If so, you can buy it at Yoox.com.

    I think it looks quite ridiculous to be honest!

    LOL. I mean honestly that’s just looks like a punchline to a mildly funny joke.

    I’m not a fan – it looks like the skirt’s shrouded in fly netting!

    When I was in 7th or 8th grade, our orchestra “uniform” was black on bottom, white on top. I had a skirt with a satiny underlayer and a sheer overlayer, and a starched white collared shirt. And it was awesome.
    This is sort of like the grownup 10-years-later version of that. And yet, it fails. Miserably.
    The eye just doesn’t know what to do with those two competing forms and line. If the underskirt were the same shape as the overskirt, maybe the same shape *and* length, then we could talk. Maybe.

    Kate – your first comment is right above your second. Not really sure what you mean by this?
