Valentino's flirty A-line

chartreuse chic

I'll admit it -- if I don't have a chance to see them in person, the couture shows only barely make my radar. In my mind, they're way more art than fashion. But it's true, they do set the tone of things to come, and I noticed two very conistant trends this season: luxurious colors and subdued volume. I'm glad designers are sticking with the volume-on-the-lower-half trend, and relieved that it seems to be done now with super flattering a-line styles (we all know my hatred for last spring's maternity wear.)

Here is an adorable circle skirt that perfectly reflects this new take on volume (as seen in the Valentino show on Style.com.) This adorable skirt can be paired with anything in your wardrobe (though to keep the Valentino vibe, I'd suggest a loose top in a contrasting color), is made in the US with re-purposed yarns, and (for those of you who love multi-purpose clothing) can even double as a funky cape!

KRELwear Knit Short CIrcle Skirt $86. Available in gold/black, offwhite/black speck, red, red/gold.
GOOD B/C: Recycled.

p.s. Send me your eco conversion wish list (stuff you love, but wish were more eco friendly) and I'll start looking for green alternatives. CHARTREUSE dot GIRL at GMAIL dot COM!

learned to love fashion in NY and sustainability in Berkeley; now I'm busy in Boston trying to find easy ways to keep up the green without giving up the chic.
