A modern classic with a super-chic silhouette, this fab paneled
Skirt is designed for firm but drape-y skirt-weight fabrics like
heavy crepe, washed linen, heavy sueded silk, soft twill,
bottom-weight rayon and soft, heavy cottons.
Gently flared A-line paneled unlined Skirt has a self-lined,
shaped waist yoke that sits at the natural waist, plus an invisible
side seam zipper closure. Skirt features a deep inverted
crescent-shaped hem-band, and finishes just below the knee
at the center front & back; the sides are slightly longer.
Topstitch detail along the panel and hem-band seams is optional.
This gorgeous skirt is a year-round wardrobe essential, perfect if
you want something that’s easy to wear as well as chic, modern and
super-flattering. Your Lantern Skirt looks greatworn with a flat or low
heel or a cool modern wedge.
It will look fabulous paired with a cleverly-cut twisted & draped
knit top, but also think about wearing it with a cropped fitted
jacket and a simple tank, with graphic jewelry and a simple clutch
to complete the look.
