What might be better than the sequin skirt in the acid colors from yesterday’s post?
Please allow me to introduce you to the paillette skirt. It always blows my mind that so many people do not seem to know about the superior cousin of the common spangle, the sequin. Larger in size, it is one of the examples of when bigger is better. Perhaps it is more expensive to produce a paillette-embellished item and that is why they are not as widely available on the market; consequently that is why whenever I find an article of clothing that I love adorned with paillettes, I scoop it.
A monkey could tell you that midi skirts are great for the tall girl. Even if there is a back vent, one does not run the risk of flashing one’s choice of undergarments. On the tallest of us, this cut will never hit mini proportions. Hemlines will not creep up into inappropriate and questionable territory. Other than assuring that the cut is not so binding around the legs that one feels as though she is wearing a disco tight jacket around her bottom half, the tall girl is guaranteed comfort.
What would I wear this with? How about a micromodal v-neck, tucked into the skirt? For skirts of this length, I typically finish with a pair of high heels; however if I was going the casual route with a knit on top, I would slip on a pair of skater sneakers. Perfect for a Saturday wandering around Center City after a lengthy brunch at Parc or Maison 208 or Farmiccia or The Love.
This skirt is significantly less expensive than the one featured on the blog yesterday. The vendor site calls it out as running large and directs the consumer to order a size smaller than usual. That hits the trifecta of sparkly skirts, right? And the bonus: it is available in extended sizes.
