Locavore: Flirty skirts from Portland mix texture and color

By Bree Coven Brown / Special to Sunday Market

Love-to-skirt_600_0928Combine super-hot plaid with feminine ruffles for a different take on the classic A-line skirt.

Handmade by Loni Gaghan in Portland, each Love To Love You skirt is one of a kind, featuring bold prints and colors. A tulip shape, which reveals three layers of flirty ruffles, and four oversized buttons add even more visual interest.

Contrasting colors, textures and materials create a playful look, such as in the Maribelle Ruffle Front Skirt, in plaid wool with wood buttons. Vintage fabrics are sometimes used, as well.

$78–$80 at Sassafras (downtown) and lovetoloveyou.etsy.com
