Cropped Knitwear & The Polar Vortex

Cropped Knitwear and leggings?!  GOOD GRIEF reversecommuter has completely lost it!

No need to panic – I can explain.

Ever wake up in the winter and think “I really have nothing to wear, it’s cold, dark and cold!    Leggings and a black top, good enough.”

 NOOOOOOOO!  Not good enough, but a great base to build on.

Add a fun skirt on top of the leggings – go short!  Then add a sweater to the ensemble et voila!

Not only are you now in an outfit that makes you feel great but you are even rocking THE BIGGEST TREND for Spring 2014 – cropped knitwear!

Ta-Daaaaaaaa!

Here are a couple of skirts that would totally work over leggings (and then later after the THAW without leggings too!)

IKAT is way cool.

Seriously cool.

Cool as in Thakoon IKAT jumpsuit (found here at Barneys)

Cool. Cool. HellaCool.

Cool as in Theysken’s Theory IKAT silk maxi dress (found here at net-a-porter.com)

Not many fabric patterns can ease past the seasonal barriers that limit most.  Think leather, skins, wool.

Case and point, here I am in early August lounging by the pool in a maxi a la IKAT, and yet it is on the menu for fall fashion from numerous designers.
