3.1 PHILLIP LIM Asymmetrical Suspender Skirt-Dress

Isn’t it interesting that every single thing you wore in your childhood -- which made you looked seriously cute and pretty -- is once again popular now that you’re an adult?
Yes, we’re talking about the suspender skirt/dress.
Of course, with the development of the times (and civilizations), the suspender skirt is no longer the unique privilege of kiddos. The modernised suspender skirt/dress is just as fun and delightful, making it a refreshing choice for many an adult and designer.
Literally the first big name label to bring this resurgence back into vogue, 3.1 Phillip Lim’s version is made of luxe 100% silk fabric and given the edgy asymmetrical treatment, making you look stylishly cute instead of “overgrown child” cute.
Fab with a white bandeau, tee, or a sparkly little top -- over or underneath. Finish off with black tights and ankle boots.

The best dressed designer and model: Phillip Lim and Irina Lazareanu attending the 2010 CFDA Fashion Awards in NYC, making sure to bring a lot of fun with them. Lazareanu is of course looking quirky yet chic in the suspender skirt in question, while Lim topped off his dress pants with a denim jacket.

...And as modeled by ShuPei Qin on the 3.1 Phillip Lim AW2010 runway.
Trivia: Get ready to see a lot more of this rising star model. Picked as one of Style.com's most anticipated top-ten newcomers, the 20-year-old Qin recently also signed on as Maybelline's newest face.
