I have several skirts which are rarely worn for lack of the right top. A voluminous bottom calls for balance via a trim shaped topper and I’ve never found one I liked. One of my favorite silhouettes is an iconic Alexander McQueen look with a full skirt paired with a slim top. I questioned myself on why I never simply went to the source for the top and get the look I was after. Enter Alexander McQueen knit(s) to my wardrobe. It started with the off-shoulder style above, that looks great not only with voluminous skirts, but also high waisted trousers. Having the option to wear untucked is a plus made possible by the shorter (but not cropped) length.
This purchase sent me down the Alexander McQueen rabbit hole of knit tops. Along with the off-shoulder style, I found a twisted v-neck long sleeve, and a perfectly cropped cashmere crew that falls at a flattering spot. All are perfect for skirts, trousers, jeans…actually any bottom that fits high on the waist.
