The arrival of this fabulously feminine skirt has just made our day. A fusion of old-world style and new-age whimsy, it features a full and flirty shape, tulle trim and discreetly placed pockets. Its playful gingham print has an innocently sweet vibe that we're over the moon for.Cotton/silk. Fully lined, tulle trim. Side zip, hook & eye close. 2 onseam pockets, high-waisted. Machine wash.
Boyfriend really dislikes this skirt. He said it looks like something from the 50s, but that's what I like it. It's such a fun and sort of retro print! The skirt has a lining, and the bottom hem of the lining is a stiffer strip of fabric, which helps give the bottom of the skirt some fullness and shape. There is also a small strip of tulle underneath as well, which also adds some fullness. The actual skirt is a very light, soft and silky fabric. I was actually surprised how light it was. It's very smooth and delicate feeling, and is definitely not as shiny as it photographs.
The skirt moves very well, and is definitely a fuller shape, so if you are worried about adding a lot of volume to your bottom half, you might want to stay away from this skirt. On the flipside, if you want to hide anything on your bottom half, this skirt can definitely help you out with that, too. The skirt comes just to my knees, so a nice length, and if I were to wear it higher on my waist, then it would be a bit shorter, but I'm happy with the length it is now.
I love this skirt, and am so glad I was able to get it, especially on sale! I love the way they've paired it with floral print shoes on the model - I have a pair of very similar shoes from Payless, and I will be curious to see how it looks in real life.
