#TBT: Carven, Derek Lam, and Erdem

Jessica Minkoff calls out her favorite leggy looks from seasons passed

With summer just around the corner, there’s no better time to embrace the balmy climate than with warm-weather duds–specifically those of the skirt variety. Fortunately, the gam-barring garment comes in a range of styles, lengths, and materials, all of which can instantly amp up your summer wardrobe. Whether you’re into an edgy, black leather mini and an oversized blazer a la Carven’s Spring 2012 offering; a sturdy, camel-colored mini paired with a soft blouse akin to Derek Lam’s Spring 2010 romp; or a super feminine lace pencil skirt that hits just below the knee (a nod to Erdem Spring 2012), the skirt is a true lesson in versatility. For this week’s #ThrowbackThursday, market editor-at-large Jessica Minkoff recalls three looks from seasons passed. Click through the slideshow, above, to see her picks.
