One Piece, Three Ways: The Utility Skirt 2.0

In partnership with our friends at Vince

In our experience, the skirts with the best ROI are the ones that are at once pretty, practical, and playful. This utility midi is one such dream piece. It’s got beauty (that color!) and grace (the swoosh of the wrap!), and it adds a dose of functionality to your closet—like your favorite jeans but sweeter, chicer, and sexier. Further evidence it will work hard for you, below.

League of Their Own

Here’s an unexpected study in contrast: chic up top, sensible down below, and slick little additions—like a zip-up backpack, a Swiss watch, and strappy Velcro sandals—that are sporty to the core. Tricked-out tech that looks as great as it functions is always a good idea.

At Your Command

Lean into the utilitarian vibes with a crisp button-down plus a Top Gun–like trench coat in the same color family (and while you’re at it, gold-dipped aviators), and you’ve got yourself a damn good weekday uniform.
