Summer has me looking for some more fun skirts to wear while running around in the heat, so I picked two up that seemed interesting from LOFT.
First up, the Silk Tiered Skirt in size Petite 00:
This one was interesting in theory, but didn’t quite work in practice.
The good: This skirt is 100% silk and a very pretty dusty rose color. The tiered design is interesting and pretty.
The bad: The waist was a bit big, so it sat too low on my hips, and the A-line shape looked frumpy and boxy on my frame. I thought it would look nicer if it were tapered more like a pencil skirt:
Verdict: I’m not particularly impressed with the cut of this skirt. Pass.
See a review of this same skirt at Extra Petite.
Next up, the Metallic Slub Jacquard Skirt in size petite 00.
This skirt was so sweet it gave me a toothache (I’m pretty sure that’s a pick-up line I heard somewhere). It’s so cutesy and pink that I felt like a cupcake. In fact, the color is called “Cream Puff” so I probably should have known better. The lights in my room made it look like foil paper, which is slightly exaggerated, but it is quite reflective.
Verdict: This skirt is way too sweet looking for my taste. Return.
