I have more maxi dresses and skirts than my closet can handle–it's safe to say I'll lament the day the trend goes out of style–and I'd like to think I have a considerable amount of variety within my collection. But this skirt by Jenni Kayne has a detail I have yet to wear: a godet, or what the New Oxford American Dictionary tells me is "a triangular piece of material inserted in a garment to make it flared or for ornamentation." And while I'm obsessed with the resulting fishtail hem, it's really the bright blue color of the piece that completely wins me over. I'm seeing summer skies and ocean waves throughout its cascading fabric.
