Another favorite J.Crew purchase of mine from the summer that will be hanging around through the fall: the surf skirt. It’s made from neoprene (hence the name) which gives the skirt some structure, along with a little bit of a sporty feel. The flared hem, however, adds a feminine touch. I’m not going to lie: I’m not a big skirt person. It’s the item of clothing of which I own the least. There’s no real reason for this other than I’ve just always found myself gravitating more towards dresses or pants. This skirt has been a surprising favorite of mine. I’ve been able to wear it so much different ways – it can be dressed-up paired with a collared shirt and ballet flats (perfect for the office) or made super casual with a simple tee and sneaks. (Speaking of sneaks: how about this gold pair?) And I don’t see any reason why it won’t continue to get just as much wear this fall. It’s the perfect accompaniment to cozy sweaters (this one and this one come to mind), or, of course, is an easy answer with my chambray shirt. All you need is a pair of booties and you’re set.
