In the 80s, button-front skirts were huge. I’m not a fan of the piece, but it certainly looks like the style is back on trend. In fact, Lily Collins was spotted sporting one while out and about in Beverly Hills on Monday. She used the skirt, which was detailed with a contrasting panel at the hem, with a rust-orange loose crop top layered over a black bandeau. She then teamed the mix with a black crossbody bag, black cat-eye sunnies, and a pair of chunky beige ankle-strap mules.
On paper, the whole combination doesn’t sound too appealing. On Lily, however, it looked really effortlessly cool. The getup had a laid-back vibe to it. No, it wasn’t a polished getup, but she looked chic, and she pulled off the tea-length 80s skirt really well.

How do you like Lily’s off-duty style?
Better than her dinner date outfit when she went out with Chris Evans last week, or no? I think this one wins by a mile. I love how easy, breezy, and funky it looks.
Lily’s skirt is from a label called Broadway and Broome, while her purse is from Zadig & Voltaire. Both are no longer available, unfortunately.
Lily’s platform heels, on the other hand, can still be had if you’ve got $80 to spare. They’re called the “Slick”, and they feature thick white rubber platforms and chunky 5-inch-tall heels. You can grab the slick in pink, black, and nude. Pair with a tea-length button-front skirt, a loose tank, and a crossbody bag to copy Lily’s style.
