Just a quick post today from Cape Cod – the hydrangeas there are so charming this time of year! I wanted to share this adorable petite-friendly skirt that I packed for the weekend. It’s just like my navy one that I DIY’d but is stretchy and of good weight. Either color is very easy to pair with tops, and as a bonus it fit great off the rack!
This skirt is available at both Topshop and Nordstrom, both with free shipping & free returns! Topshop currently has more sizes in stock, down to a US 0 (in my experience, their sizing runs very small, about 2 sizes smaller than other US brands I shop at). I am wearing a US 2 here which is a comfortable fit and not too mini. For reference, my waist/hip measurements are 24/32 inches. The skirt also does come in petite sizing, but I think that would be too short for my liking.
This skirt is pull-on style with a thick elastic waistband concealed inside. The material itself feels like a stretchy twill and is fully lined, with the lining completely stitched to the outer so no worrying about the two layers coming apart. As with all white bottoms I recommend wearing skin-colored undies, but I was happy to be able to wear printed tops tucked in without much show-through. The size 2 I have, when lying flat and unstretched, measures about 12.5″ across the waist and 16.5″ across the hips. This is one of those pieces I’ll be sure to keep out of the machine dryer to avoid any shrinking.
