First: I was intrigued by this silhouette: A skirt over pants is nothing new but Dries's tailored take is rather subtle in the end. I was however dubious about the proportions regarding my standard size/height especially as I'm not one to wear heels on a daily basis but a DvN sales assistant assured me that this item was not discriminating against those not of model height. Still as I wasn't able to try it on and judge for myself, I pushed aside the idea.

then: I stumbled upon his picture from T Magazine and fell in love all over again with the look. The all black outfit with touches of white and sneakers exudes both a quiet avant-garde and casual urban vibe.
Now: After a stop by COS, where I unexpectedly found this skirt over pants. I'm considering jumping the shark and adopting the look. Quite coincidentally I was wearing my Dries van Noten shoes. A telltale sign?
