one of my favorite finds so far this summer, this sheer jersey shirred skirt from american apparel is destined for “staple” status in my closet. it’s the perfect knee length (or slightly above if you wear it high-waisted), and the full skirt is offset by a very lightweight jersey, so it’s not at all heavy, which eliminates my usual peeve with fuller skirts of having to tuck in my tops to avoid waist bulk. i am a little concerned that the hem is unfinished, but at $28, i’ll do as tim gunn would advise, and “make it work.
by the way, can anyone explain the utterly bizarre styling on american apparel’s website? these were literally the only two photos of it actually being worn as a skirt. it’s like they can’t stand that this is actually a respectable length, and so are forced to style it as a dress. baffling. fortunately, i know you’re all far too fashion-savvy to try wearing this as a dress.
at any rate, i’ve already nabbed this in navy, and plan to scoop up at least three more colors asap. summer, here i come!
