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.
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.
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.
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?
This feminine crepe chiffon sheath skirt has a flouncy ruffle on the hem but is still understated enough to look professional for a conservative office setting….
…but it looks great in the Wroot’s magical woodland too!
Print crepe chiffon skirt with ruffle by Talbots is discontinued (but see lovely crepe dress with ruffling here and adorable chiffon polka dot dress here), white cotton long sleeved tee long-sleeved tee by Merona purchased at Target (I love this boat neck three quarter Merona tee), off-white cotton scarf purchased at World Market (this ivory and gold one is so pretty), black Zola pumps by Sam Edelman (same).
