To say that Muiccia Prada would be voted Miss Popular this season would probably be considered the understatement of the year. Her striped confections have been splashed across magazine covers and spreads including Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Vogue and even the red carpet. It’s hard to resist the fun, whimsical allure of hot pink and black horizontal stripes to spice up the most basic of items, the pencil skirt. So, here are two fashionistas, both spotted during Milan Fashion Week this February wearing the same skirt, although with completely different takes on it. If I had it my way, I think I’d pair it with something feisty like snakeskin pumps while softening the lines with a buttery leather cropped trench belted over a mini soft sweater. Complete the look with a fabulous silver necklace and a woven clutch. To see my version in its entirety click over the jump. File under style for all.
