Gap's spring previous spring arrivals included a beautiful skirt called the Striped Shirred Skirt (item #585627). It comes in three colors: pink, grey, and blue stripe, and both the pink and grey stripe come in tall and petite sizes. It originally retailed for $54, but is currently marked down - $39.99 for pink and grey, and $29.99 for blue!
Gap describes the skirt as such:
Spring days couldn't feel any closer when decked in this breezy skirt. Bold stripes are offset by a chic banded waist. Tuck in your favorite top for an irresistibly stylish look. I initially only ordered this skirt in the pink and blue stripes, after being unable to decide which one I liked better. In reality, I liked all three colors, but at first I just ordered the pink and blue using a hefty discount. After they arrived, I ordered the grey one in petite. I'm only showing you one during this review, because they are all the same thing, although the grey one is of course shorter. [Also, please note that I have the skirt on slightly crooked, so the zipper pull is not exactly where it should be. That's my dressing incompetence, not a defect in the skirt!]
So this skirt is as pretty in real life as it looks online. The skirt is very light and airy, even with the lining underneath. The lining is not sewn right into the skirt, but acts as a sort of slip underneath, and moves very easily with the rest of the skirt. The fabric is a cotton/silk blend, and it is extremely smooth.
The waistband is very wide, which is good for both tucking in shirts (as I've done in the pictures), and wearing shirts untucked. Because I didn't get the blue in petite, the skirt is a little long, but still a nice length. As usual, it hits just lower on my knees, not above, as described. The skirt has a nice A-line shape, but doesn't flare out too much. It is pretty forgiving on hips and thighs, but not too flared that it makes you look bigger than you are.
So what do you think? Do you like this skirt? Do you already own it, or did you pick it up during Gap's Give & Get weekend?
