Check out this skirt from Helmut Lang. It’s definitely not your typical maxi!

The drawstring waistband is actually covered with leather (see below). Correct me if I’m wrong but I see hip, grunge, and street when I look at this piece.

Do you like it? It retails at a rather high $390 at Shopbop. If interested, simply go grab it. Now how to wear it is entirely another story but here are three ways I can think of.

1. Tough Romantic

Tuck a romantic lace top under the skirt, toughen the look with some buckled sandals, and cap it off with a chunky cuff bracelet:

2. Spring Grunge

Grab a loose and comfy printed tank, put it over the skirt, accessorize and cap it off with black lace-up wedge espadrilles.
