What the Wroot Wore Wednesday: Crepe Skirt with Ruffle

Crepe chiffon skirt with ruffle on the hem

Know what the Wroot wore Wednesday? This feminine and flouncy print crepe skirt, made out of a drapey chiffon material. To me, crepe chiffon dresses and skirts seem perfectly suited for warm weather, since they have a light and airy look and feel to them.

Solid long-sleeved tee pairs perfectly with the print skirt

This feminine crepe sheath skirt with a ruffled hem is actually part of a two-piece dress that I bought years ago at Talbots. The top half of the original outfit is long gone, but I’ve found the skirt to be such a classic, and I still wear it often. If you like this look, you might also like some of Nordstrom’s lovely summer crepe chiffon dresses, like this polka dot chiffon flare dress by Tahari and this solid crepe sheath dress by Eliza J.

Belted tee over crepe ruffled skirt

I topped this pretty skirt with a simple white long-sleeved tee and then layered a belt over it to give the waist some definition.

Add a scarf to tie together the tee and crepe skirt

In a way, I think the off-white cotton scarf makes this outfit…I like how its ivory color complements the white of the tee and the pattern of the skirt. Plus, the flow of the scarf partners nicely with the drape and flow of the skirt. This chiffon skirt touches the knee and I think looks best with a higher heel. The black Zola pumps by Sam Edelman modeled here are perfect, don’t you think?

    What a pretty skirt! I agree, that fabric is so perfect for this time of year–so light and flowy. I like how you added the belt on top of the shirt too, it looks great!
