Sequined Stretch-Jersey Maxi Skirt
Long Skirts for Women Hit the Red Carpet
It's such a simple idea: a casual shirt paired with a formal skirt. We've seen countless iterations of this look on celebrities in recent decades, perhaps most iconically on Sharon Stone at the Oscars in 1998. She wore her husband's shirt unbuttoned down to there with a Vera Wang skirt—creating an unexpectedly sexy combination.
For the Met Gala in 2010, Jenna Lyons—in true J.Crew fashion—paired an overize cashmere sweater with a grand feathered skirt. The same year, Kate Bosworth wore a Jil Sander Spring/Summer 2011 dress that looked like a crewneck t-shirt tucked into the most fantastic mint skirt. Both looks were flawless in our eyes but got an added dose of chic with the perfectly chosen lipstick.
We're so enamored with this look, we couldn't resist reimagining each celeb's getup for today. We found a crisp white shirt and skirt to mimic Leelee Sobieski's Jil Sander number from 2012, as well as a silk blouse and cascading sequin skirt to rival a combo worn by Jessica Alba last year.
Go ahead and throw it back with this little combo of casual tops and long skirts for women for your next dressy occasion—just don't forget the lipstick.
