Transforming a Wardrobe Misfit, Part Two

You know that one piece in your closet that you’ve had for years but never wear? Our genius stylist, Lisa, calls them wardrobe misfits—and she’s on a mission to get them out of hiding and into heavy rotation. Her latest challenge? Our très chic art director Alice’s awesome—yet supersheer—hand-me-down skirt.

“My mother-in-law gave it to me because she didn’t know what to wear with it—and she thought I would! I love the color and the print, but I never seem to wear it because it’s see-through. Also, I’m not sure how to style it on top.”

“I know Alice loves a good star print, but she’s far from being a swishy-skirted bohemian. To make it work for her, I added a tailored jacket and cool, simple boots.”

Lisa styled with Madewell, of course: Charade Blazer, Keepsake Tee, The Passenger Clutch, The Suede Sandstorm Boot.
