Hope Hearts: J.Crew Metallic Sequined Bell Skirt
It’s no surprise to you that I’ve had a long-standing love affair with New York-based retail dream, J.Crew. I forget exactly when it first happened, but somewhere between my first schoolboy blazer and J.Crew Collection cashmere dress, I fell in love. Originally launched in 1983, the J.Crew label boasts practical and preppy designs that are staples in sophisticated wardrobes everywhere.
Of all the women’s new arrivals for this week, I simply can’t resist this metallic sequined bell skirt. Spanish metal sequins are artfully sewn on the skirt for a sweet, shimmer effect. The sequins are coloured in shades of bronze and copper, and they’ve actually been oxidized for an antiqued look. Sounds fabulous, right? All it takes is one look and you’ll be sold, too.
And the sequins, while certainly the most stunning aspect of this J.Crew mini skirt, aren’t my favourite part. My favourite feature of this J.Crew sequin skirt has to be the elastic waist. LOVE! Not only is an elastic waist completely comfortable and figure-friendly, it also makes this skirt super versatile. You can style this J.Crew mini skirt high-waisted or you can sling it down on your hips and wear it low. You can add even more depth by adding additional cinch to the waist with a belt.
This J.Crew skirt can make your everyday look more elegant, and you can use it to add some shimmer to your evening look. This skirt is a must-have for your closet’s Fall 2010 collection, and it’s right on par with the earthy, brown and gold-tones that were highlighted on the Fall RTW runways.
I’m loving it, are you? Find me on Twitter @hoperobertson and let me know more of your must-haves for Fall 2010!
