THE SUBTLE STATEMENT

March 29, 2016

My favorite statement pieces are the subtle ones. Not loud or abrasive. This vintage Yves Saint Laurent skirt attracts attention with its delicately embroidered Calla Lily as it quietly wraps around the skirt’s hem.

For this look, I highlighted that detail by keeping everything else very simple.
