You don't have to be a rocket scientist or even a serious fashionista to realize the peasant skirt is back. All you have to do is pick up any magazine and you will see the look on every page. Marc Jacobs' beautifully referenced Yves Saint Laurent 70s ruffles and we have two originals to share with you.

The first skirt is in natural canvas-cotton with a mix of applied grosgrain and ribbon trim in red, green, and black. This is the perfect skirt to wear while stomping grapes and making wine. Perhaps the future owner will live in Napa?

The second skirt is black polished cotton with a contrast white sash belt and ruffle trim. I would suggest this be worn with a great Espadrille, but can just as easily be dressed up with a strappy heel (in a color) and a romantic blouse for an effortless cocktail look.

I have to say that in the last fourteen years of Decades, the peasant skirt has always been in demand. It's never gone out of style and a vintage YSL example is the ultimate way to sport the look that we all love.
