Marc Jacobs Werqs a Prada Skirt
Apr 26, 2011 - by Jessica Lapidos
Marc Jacobs takes a stroll at Bergdorf Goodman in a Prada skirt and shoes. Now, it's tricky to establish firm feedback on a man in a skirt - even on a man such as this and a skirt such as that - but he's working it. He's no stranger to wearing so-called men's skirt, his first public foray was back in 2008, but now he's fooling around with a woman's skirt. See why it works on Marc Jacobs, and if you should try this at home.
The Cut: The length is demure cutting just below the kneecap, and the details on the side provide outer thigh shaping.
The Pattern: The dark stripes keep it colorfully subdued, and the low espadrille flatforms complement it.
The Confidence: The thing is, Marc Jacobs will always be taken seriously in this skirt. You can pull it off too with a demeanor like that.
The Verdict: Let's put a Bookmarc on this trend, we'll see who catches up.
