phillip lim's leather top bridges the gap between two trends
Monday, February 8, 2010
What's a woman to do when her closet full of leggings and studded tops is made instantly obsolete by a season's worth of camel hair, gray flannel, and glen plaids? Is there a happy medium? This 3.1 Phillip Lim shirt comes close. The black leather is a nod—not a scream—to 1983, but the cropped silhouette is sleek enough to pair with the new high-waisted, wide-legged trousers. Baby steps, ladies, baby steps.
3.1 Phillip Lim cuffed short-sleeve leather tee, $695, available at 3.1 Phillip Lim, NYC, (212) 334-1160.
