When it comes to trendy pieces, I’m usually hesitant to spend too much money on them. I like to test drive trends, picking up pieces from affordable retailers like H&M and Zara before I decide if it’s something worthy of more hard earned dollars. Much to my surprise, I fell in love with the longer, more ladylike skirts that are everywhere this fall and decided to invest in a classic wool skirt with staying power. My search was brief; I checked out the Marc by Marc Fall collection (for the one millionth time) and decided on this one. A camel skirt in a timeless shape is an easily justified investment piece: it’s extremely versatile and I can wear it for years to come. What fall trends do you think are worth a splurge?
