Holiday Taffeta...


The rustle of a knee length taffeta skirt is the perfect festive touch for our holiday wardrobe. We can style it any way we want, wear it to a party, out to dinner, or for a walk to see the holiday windows. On sale now, J. Crew offers a silk taffeta a-line in bright aquamarine, light flamingo, burnished olive, and neutral champagne or taupe. Crew's Collection floor length silk taffeta bow skirt is the ultimate dress up piece. Banana Republic’s full taffeta skirt is available in black and taupe, while their tulip skirt comes in purple or black taffeta. Best buy is the Gap’s silk and cotton taffeta. At $58.00 it has mini-pleats with a slimming dropped waist and is available in purple petal, pale smoke and black. Pair any of these styles with a tailored white shirt, pile on pearls or a chunky necklace, add black opaque tights, pumps or boots and you are good to go. A cashmere cardigan will keep you warmer. A favorite of ours, an iridescent dark purple belle skirt from J.Crew.com sold out early last month, a lesson in buying when you see it!
