It's no secret that I LOVE a cute J. Crew skirt! And, lately, I've figured out a sizing trick when it comes to those cute mini skirts that would be too short for me in the regular length. I loved this skirt when it first appeared on the website, but it was a mini, so I passed on it initially. Then, I decided to try these mini skirts in the tall size for extra length. Winner, winner chicken dinner! It worked!!! And, I tried it again with the J. Crew Ruffle Mini Skirt in Houndstooth. I am so glad that the tall length works for me because this skirt is SO fabulous!
Here are two ways to style this beautiful skirt:
One of my amazing online VPSs created the look with the navy graphic t-shirt and my amazing retail store peeps helped me create the look with the leather jacket.
This skirt is SO versatile. I love the idea of pairing the skirt with an equally versatile graphic t-shirt for a little fun pattern mixing. A cable knit sweater and a fun leather moto jacket is another cute (and warm) styling idea. I took this skirt in a 14 Tall. There is an elastic waistband in the back of the skirt, which makes the fit a bit generous. So, you could likely size down. I tried the skirt with taller boots, but I think that it works best with booties to elongate the legs.
Thanks for stopping by!
