Lookbook Store layered mesh skirt – a mother of pearl and ballet dream

Mesh skirts are a big trend

Yesterday I introduced you to Lookbook Store an online women boutique. You can find my review of the Lookbook Store baby pink jersey dress at the lin in case you missed the post. Today I present you the second piece of the three samples of my choice that I picked from Lookbook Store’s huge collection and that I got courtesy to them. A nude double layer mesh skirt in tea-length.

Mesh layer skirts are a big trend right now that works also for women in midlife. Click To Tweet

Layered mesh skirts are a big trend

After browsing what Lookbook Store had to offer I immediately fell in love with this very feminine layered mesh skirt. I decided to jump on this trend and I am sure I will not be the last. This layered mesh skirt has two nude mesh layers and a slightly shorter pale pink satin opaque fabric layer underneath. This design is genius as it produces a nice play of color shades from petal pink over beige to nude like mother of pearl. My photographer captured this color play well in the series of photos shown below. The fact that the pale pink satin fabric is shorter than the nude mesh fabric gives the skirt a playful teasing vibe.

Description of the skirt

This skirt has a rubber band in the pale pink waist band that makes the skirt a one size fits (nearly) all. The skirt is cut straight and the fabric circumference is about 60 inch (~1.52 m), i.e. it should fit anyone with hips less than about 55 inch or so (1.4 m). On a boyish athletic body like mine the skirt creates beautiful body around the hips. However, on an hourglass body the fabric will be distributed over a wider circumference around the hips than on my body. Then the skirt will not add this “extra” weight as it does on my straight up and down body. Thus, this skirt will flatter many body shapes including hourglass (X-shape), inverted triangle or A-shape.

What I love about the skirt

The skirt has a very nice smooth ballerina like movement as demonstrated above. I wanted to go the ballerina route of this Lookbook Store layered mesh skirt and stay with the ballet type colors. Thus, I added my pale pink sling backs and gray cashmere silk sweater. Since the forecast for the evening predicted temperatures in the upper 50s (around 15oC) I took my tailored light wash denim jacket with me. It has a tailored cut and hence plays well with the feminine vibe of the skirt.

The skirt works for more than just summer

Since in ballet, woolen leg warmers are a common thing I will try to wear this skirt in fall with gray tights, a long sleeve top and flats. For extra warmth I could even put a half slip underneath. What do I want more when I always have to have in mind that every piece should be wearable also when temperatures drop? Being able to wear summer pieces in some form or another longer than just in June, and July is a top priority for anyone living in cold climate.

The different price ranges of the items in this outfit make the outfit down to Earth real life. The pastel color scheme makes it very summery and feminine.
