earrings c/o PD PAOLA | sunglasses ASOS | sandals Goertz17
For today’s all black outfit I went back in history to find out where the wrap skirt originated from. As I wanted to make sure this would be a well educated introduction to one of my absolute favorite summer trends: the midi wrap skirt. Originally, the wrap skirt was called “schenti”. It was traditionally worn by men in Egypt. Often the wrap skirt was not more than a short linen cloth that men wrapped around their waist. It was adopted by all classes, while of course the material could differ greatly. The pharaohs for example would wear much finer linen that was often pleated, too. Eventually, it hit the runway and became a mainstream trend over the last couple of decades.
Yours truly loves a good wrap skirt, especially if it also has a midi length. Long over are the days that I comfortably rock a mini skirt, the exception being on holidays or in the height of the summer heat. Todays midi wrap skirt is from &OTHERSTORIES and super lightweight, which makes it a go to piece for days in the office or a lunch date. The other week I added a pair of high heeled sandals and wore it out for an event, which works perfectly, too. For this look I added a H&M TREND ripped top, my ASOS statement sunglasses and my red LEO ET VIOLETTE bag to go with my favorite red CHARLOTTE TILBURY lipstick (shade: Tell Laura). You know my credo if I wear a all black outfit I opt for bolder accessories therefore it’s not a surprise that I also added a pair of PD PAOLA chunky golden earrings to round everything up.
