Designer Spotlight-Anne Klein

Wearing this skirt makes me feel so dressy and classic!  Each and every time I wear it to work, I receive compliments…maybe it’s the color, or its flowy detail, who knows…but I just love this skirt by Anne Klein – today’s weekly Designer Spotlight.  Anne Klein’s vision “heralded mixing separates” which is exactly what I did today by pairing her skirt with a basic blouse and colored blazer.  The skirt is actually part of a full Anne Klein skirt suit that I found in an outlet years ago when I was first began working.  Anne Klein has made a strong impact on American women, especially the working woman, and has even been noted as putting sportswear on the map!  The Anne Klein label was established in 1968 and at a time when women were entering the workforce at a tremendous speed, her concept of wardrobing, using menswear fabrics and combining separates into unique style combinations empowered women to not only look beautiful, but feel comfortable as well.  Although the woman behind the label passed away a few years ago, her legend carries on.  Today, you can find her clothing online or in your local department stores.  Thank goodness for Anne Klein…such a classic and fabulous designer!

    Anne Klein happens to be my favourite shoe brand because I know the quality and fit suits me great. I have never bought any of her clothes because I tend to be more of a thrift shopper but it’s fascinating to read about the brand’s origins.
