Printed Wrap Skirt Styled Two Ways

Making the most out of each item I own is something I take great pride in.  I enjoy being able to remix pieces in my closet in a multitude of ways.  As much as I would love to show you what I wear every single day, it is just not time feasible for me to do so.  So as an alternative, I am wanting to do more posts that show the same piece styled in different ways similar to my last outfit post Dress It Up, Dress It Down With Avenue.

Today’s post is featuring a faux wrap midi skirt I recently got.  It has a beautiful chevron and stripe pattern in navy, peachy pink, olive, and white.  The fabric is a textured open weave knit mesh with lining that goes down to right above the knee.  It has a bit of a southwestern feel to it that I love and it calls to my Native American heritage.

For the first look, I wore a lacy, textured ivory sweater for a feminine flair.  Since the skirt has so much going on with the color and print, I like the way the tonal chevron in the knit blends so good without competing.  A simple earthy necklace made of horn and brass links still make a statement.  To complete the look, a navy wristlet and taupe booties act as the supporting characters here.  Loads of curls in my hair with the sides pinned back adds to the feminine feel of this outfit.

For the second look I selected a chambray shirt for on top.  An obi belt gives a fun transition from the skirt to shirt.  I also like the waist definition it provides.  To bring some of the colors from the skirt up to the top, I chose a multi strand necklace to layer over the chambray.  A fringed handbag and nude lace up pointy toe flats are my supporting characters here.  For my hair I decided to do a loose braid around the hairline for a soft, boho feel.

Did you happen to notice all the pieces I am wearing via Poshmark?  I did not realize it until I wrote up this post.  I am currently working on a post on how to shop for plus size clothing on Poshmark and am also collecting links to tons of closets for you to be able to click over and shop.  I have had several of you request this type of post and I am hoping to have it up within the next couple of weeks.  In the mean time, if you are not already signed up with Poshmark (web version, app version), and you want to, be sure to use the referral code BYKEJ and you will get $10 credit on the shopping app.  If you are interested in following me there too, my user name is j9design.

Side Note: After years of shopping at Anthropologie, I have found one particular brand they carry there that is the majority of what I have purchased.  I have over 10 items from the Maeve brand from over the years.  Since I waiver between a size 16 and 18, you would think that I would be excluded to shop plus size brands exclusively and I refuse to give in to the notion that I should not be able to shop at stores I love.  If you are around my size and feel intimidated to shop at Anthropologie, I highly recommend you try out the Maeve brand and what they have to offer.  I am wearing this particular skirt in their largest size of XL.  Since most of the pieces I own are ones with lots of stretch made of fabrics like jersey and mesh, I find they are very comfortable and easy to wear.  They are also a higher quality and even my older pieces still look new after many washes.

  1. That skirt is perfect on you and fits your style. Like you, I refuse to shop only in plus size stores and wear many XL sizes at Macys & Dillards. I am also on Poshmark & following you. Can’t wait to read your post.

    1. Oh yes, it does just sing to me! I have not shopped department stores like Macys and Dillards for years and should not negate them either. I know that they have some fabulous options.

  2. I really like the palette of this skirt and how you highlighted different hues in each outfit. I especially love the second look because you see more of the skirt, and the peach in the necklace really brings out the peach in the print. I passed over this skirt on the website because I didn’t think this silhouette would work on me. I figured it would be too clingy throughout the tummy, but now you’re making me reconsider. Now I’ll take more Maeve pieces with me to the fitting room in the hopes of a good fit. The brand I’ve had the most success with Weston. I have five pieces from them. I also like Ranna Gill.

    1. Thank you Suzanne. Especially coming from you! You have such fabulous style. And, yes you should check out Poshmark, I know you would love it. You have mentioned ThredUp on your blog, and I believe they are similar in nature.
