Best Bet: Zara Pinstripe Mini

The fall runway collections walked a fine line between masculine and feminine style more than any recent season that comes to mind. Oversize tailored coats and brogues were as prevalent as ostrich feathers and swingy skirts. However, it was chalkstripe or pinstripes that confidently strode into the more wearable territories of a woman’s closet. Grounded on navy, pinstripes are more versatile to wear than a graphic houndstooth or Glen plaid. Zara offers a twist on the classic menswear fabric with this ruffled-hem miniskirt. It’s the sort of thing you want to wear with a gray oversize sweater or a slim turtleneck when you mean business, but when paired with a black leather pump and a smear of fuchsia lipstick, you’ll probably have more fun.
