Do you remember the white Francie skirt from few seasons ago? I did not get it when J.Crew was offering it, because I thought white skirts are impractical, especially in the winter. Well, I have since converted, and in fact, I was obsessed with the idea of white wool skirt worn with a dark colored sweater. So when the No2 Double Serge Wool showed up in antique white, after deliberating a little, I decided to use the 20% off coupon code and order it without even waiting for further reduction, so I can wear it through out the whole season.
I have ordered it in regular and tall version in my regular size 4. The fit is as expected, see below for tall to regular comparison. The wool is nice and soft and substantial. The color is ivory white with yellow undertones but you only see it if you put it against true white.
My first idea was to wear it with a gray sweater, matching tights and black accessories. I loved how this outfit turned out! There is no pop-of-color other than the lip and some sparkle from my necklace. The gray cashmere sweater is from Brora and it is one of those magically-non-pilling-wonders. I love how the shape is fitted and cropped, it works perfectly with the skirt.
