This skirt will probably be one of my most worn pieces this summer! With good reason, the ruffle detailing, the movement of this skirt when you walk, the constant stares from strangers-I can go on and on. Bottom line, the ruffled skirt is by far my favorite skirt trend of the season.
Why you need this skirt
The fabric is great, perfect for summer temps. It’s also lightweight but not see through so it allows for both modesty and air circulation. It’s also a statement piece so its very easy to pair with basics like I did. Think of it as the main character of your story and all the other pieces you’re wearing, supporting cast. Also, I recommend sizing down 1 due to the fullness of the skirt. For reference, I’m wearing a size 14. If they carried 12, that would’ve fit much better.
I initially saw a version of this skirt from one of my favorite retail brands for $700! I am a stickler for quality pieces but, I’m no fool. Spending $700 on a skirt that I can really only wear 1-2 seasons a year seems insane to me. Thankfully one of my go-to plus size brands, Eloquii released their version for a fraction of that price tag. As soon as I saw it, I pictured wearing it casually with white converse low top sneakers and a crop denim jacket (a look I just might pull off soon). For a casual Friday work look, I paired my pinstripe ruffle skirt with a ruffled sleeve white tee and gingham sandals, for a play on print.
