Who knew that Dior’s New Look—last big when Betty Draper was a youngster—would be such a force for Fall 2013? Of the crop of mid-calf circle skirts in stores now, this quilted one by Michael Kors is worth serious consideration.

It’s beautifully made in Italy, from a sheeny blend of wool, polyester, and acrylic. Cut on the bias, it moves beautifully as you walk (see Saks’ website for a video). Depending on what you wear with it, you could make this skirt work for night or day, for years to come.

$1,450 at Saks Fifth Avenue, 700 N. Michigan Ave., or saks.com
