|Sterling skirt in double-serge wool|
After chatting with CS to get the measurements I decided to order my regular pencil size. It was a right call and the skirt fits me very well in this size. I would say the waist is a little bit more defined than in double serge wool pencils. I am 5'6 and I am fine with the length. I think a flared skirt is tricky when it is any longer.
The fabric is very similar to the No2 pencil skirt but it feels more substantial that the Heather Acorn pencil skirt(which I did not like, see review here) more like other colors I tried (see here). It flares just a little bit but enough to not need a slit in the back. I felt very lady-like in it and less trendy, in a good way. It is super comfortable for walking and the pockets add some interest.
I was curious if you could wear it with the top untucked but I think you can, if your top has a defined waist or it is cropped. Of course if you loose the pocket detail, the skirt becomes rather blah, but sometimes that's OK..
Overall, I really like the skirt. I wanted a neutral but I think it would be stunning in crimson maple as well.I am keeping it!
That's all folks!
Do you own Sterling skirt from either last year?
Have you tried this year's version or are you planning to?
Please share, it would be no fun without you!!!
