Tie Waist Skirt

September 20, 2017

Office wear, like all workwear, is purposely boring; after all, its goal is to promote conformity. Modern office wear is more colorful and newly infused with idiosyncrasy, but there is a point at which you struggle to get excited about a pencil skirt, no matter how brightly-colored and unusually-textured it is.

Sometimes a piece doesn't even have to deviate much from the standard design to catch your eye. Take this Tie Waist Skirt from J. Crew for example: it is cut like a pencil skirt, except for the defiant flare at the bottom. And this little detail is all I needed to convince myself of its potential. The pretty medium green color and tie-waist detail also helped.

The style runs (1-2 sizes) small in the hips, so is perhaps best suited for someone with a straighter shape. Reviews online seem to corroborate my experience. The skirt in 00P measures 12.5" across the waist, and 22" in length.

The material is a light three-season wool blend (96% wool and 4% elastane) so it is not wrinkle-prone, but is also not wrinkle-proof. You will want to give it a thorough steam before every wear.

This skirt is currently on sale in four colors online, and is available in regular and petite sizes.
