Currently Coveting: Charles Henry On Air skirt

Charles Henry On Air skirt for Anthropologie

I haven’t gotten into the maxi skirt or dress trend of summer. Even if they are super comfortable and all the celebs are doing it, my 5’4” frame always looked a bit overwhelmed by all that fabric just hanging there, especially when done in a bold or splashy print, like so many spring/summer versions have been.

But once I caught a glimpse of the On Air skirt that designer Meredith Fisher did exclusively for  Anthropologie (under her label Charles Henry), I was smitten with and definitely ready to wear a longer length skirt.

Fisher is known for ultra-feminine pieces (she previously designed the line WAYF, which was filled with light silk blouses and cute, kicky dresses) and this skirt is simple, romantic and stamped with her signature girly style.

The nude/blush color makes a great foundation to wear with any bold or even soft shade and the flowy nature of the silk is a nice juxtaposition against a structured blazer or chunky knit.

Perhaps it’s the tea length and nude color that grab me? It feels like something a ballerina would wear with a black wrap sweater and high bun -– a grown-up and extremely elegant tutu.

The On Air skirt by Charles Henry is $198 at Anthropologie.
