I was really intrigued by a recent style.com article featuring the upcoming long skirt trend for fall. Part 70's, part gypsy, and part prairie, long skirts are a great way to layer up with comfort once the temperature starts to drop again. Another thing I noticed was the way designers merchandised this future staple with contrasting mensy details - blazers, grandpa cardigans and vests. This trend is out in the streets as well, and a few months ago while working on a project for Japan I even shot a fall look focused around the long skirt silhouette. Below are several inspirational images to file away until the colder months, from style.com, jakandjill.com, and thesartorialist.blogspot.com. Also, maybe as you purchase your maxi dresses for summer think about investing in fabrics that can easily transition into autumn once layered with woolly stockings, chunky sweaters, and cozy scarves.
