Let’s start off by saying that this skirt is mini. Like, definitely shorter than most things I would wear, but i’m in love with it. You saw in my Fall haul that I ordered it during J.Crew’s 25% off sale and couldn’t be happier with the fit. For reference, I ended up ordering a size 12 instead of my usual 10 because I knew the shape would sit lower on my hips and I wanted to avoid any tightness. I’m wearing it here with bare legs and a blazer (can we talk about how warm it has been in the bay area? Crazytown) but can’t wait to pair it with leggings and boots for cooler months.
Also, i’m entirely obsessed with dark lips and this Revlon lip color that was on mega sale at Walgreens.
I wanted to get some photos without the jacket so you could see the true fit. For starters, the skirt fits off the rack with no alterations (miracle). It makes my tummy area feel so slim and I love the seaming around the skirt that feels like it really holds you in. The skirt is a crepe, thick material with a hook and zip back.
The fluted seam hits right above my hip’s widest part and then flares, which, I thought would be unflattering but I actually am loving. It is a mini length and does tend to ride up a tad when walking because of the silk-like lining. Because I will be wearing this with tights I personally don’t see this as an issue, but should be noted.
Overall, I love the skirt and when it’s on sale, it’s even better. I envision wearing this with longer length sweaters, belted for definition, creating a faux-drop waist look.
And, have a great week!
