Flashback Friday: The Camel Skirt






































This camel skirt from J.Crew ($45) was an item I knew I wanted right away. I loved the color and texture and the comfort of an elastic waistband and pockets are hard to beat. One downfall: it can be tough to wear a ruched waistline like this. Shirts either have to be thick enough to cover the waistband entirely (look 6) or tucked in (the rest of the look). Beyond that, this skirt could not be more versatile. It can be dressed up with sequins or a blazer, and dressed down with flat boots or an oversized sweater and pretty much any color goes. Which look is your favorite?

Looking for a similar skirt? I've seen similar styles at LOFT, H&M and J.Crew recently (but no links online). Also check out these from Modcloth, ASOS.com and Express.

  3. I like the 'preppy' look... last photo. I do love an elastic waistband as it makes it fun to wear the skirt high-waisted, but it can be a pain if you don't want to tuck in your top. Great looks!

  9. Love the skirt but maybe in a different color. I get pretty tan in the summer and I don't like how the color is so close to your skin color. If they had this is in black it would be my favorite skirt of all time. If it came in bright colors... HEAVEN! Nevertheless, I love how you paired everything. 7 is my fav... the booties and lack of jacket or cardi are what does it for me.

  17. This neutral skirt is so versatile. Love looks 1, 2, 3, 5 & 8 the ways you have worn this skirt. It looks perfect with similar colors in the same family like beiges, golds, olive green, kiwi, mustard. I also think would look great with turquoise and teal.
