Some designer items are well worth the investment.
Case in point, Balenciaga's snake jacquard pencil skirt is not only a striking statement piece, but also surprisingly versatile, depending on your personal style.
Miranda Kerr pairs the sophisticated piece with an elegant sheer black blouse, oversized sunglasses and classic pumps for an uptown look that's perfectly pretty in New York; while Abigail Spencer adds a downtown spin to the same skirt with an unexpected striped crewneck sweater, quirky bangles and suede ankle booties at the 2013 Winter TCA Panel in Pasadena, Calif.
While we're impressed with Spencer's bold styling, we have to hand it to the gorgeous Victoria's Secret model, who looks lovelier than ever in her feminine daytime look.
