Meet The Parents

The combination of a classic turtleneck sweater and midi skirt is undeniably chic—the length is modest but the leather texture adds interest. Choose a long sock boot for additional coverage on the legs and to streamline the skirt's A-line silhouette. Adorn with small hoop earrings and a sophisticated velvet cross-body bag.
