Even though I’m on a sabbatical from work for a few months, at the back of my mind new clothes always have to be versatile enough for work or play. I’m not really someone who likes to keep things separate or ‘good clothes‘ because I like to feel fabulous EVERY day! When I saw this Elvi skirt I knew I had to have it. It’s almost everything I could ask for in a skirt. The front zips ALL the way up (or down!) and it has pockets! yes! Pockets! I’m such a fan of pockets I can’t even begin to explain. I think because of the A Line shape, I like that pockets give me a little space around the hips. Plus, I like to slouch with my hands in my pocket. Don’t judge me.
This beauty of a skirt is really soft and quite generous in size which I was surprised about. I’m wearing a 26 and there’s so much space. If you’re in-between sizes go down. It has a lovely soft feel to it and is a good length as a mini kind of skirt; I’m 5″6 for reference. It does go up a little at the back because of my bum but not so much that it’s a problem. The block design is simple and it’s definitely a versatile skirt for work or play.
Would I wear it in summer? Probably. I think the colour owes itself more to autumn and winter but with a white vest top and sandals… you’d be sorted. I have to say Elvi are making waves in plus size fashion right now offering really sharp pieces that are striking but wearable. I’d definitely recommend taking a look if they are new to you.
