You don’t see many white skirts in the city and I think that’s a shame, since I believe white skirts are an absolute wardrobe staple. It is akin to the LBD (little black dress) but black is a been there done that colour. Even though the black pencil skirt is universally flattering, I truly think a white skirt adds that va va voom chic factor we all hope to achieve.
Unfortunately, it is so hard to find a nice white skirt in stores, and the selection online can be iffy. I am looking for that classic white (preferably high waisted) pencil skirt. The fabric shouldn’t be thick but it must have lining. Nothing is worse than wearing a pair of pants or a skirt, feeling like a million bucks only to realize that the lining is sheer.
The skirt I am wearing in the photo is from Australia and incidentally so is the crop top. While I did not have the luck of being in Australia, my sister did. She can vouch that Australia is a shopping Mecca! I would WhatsApp her at 2 in the morning while she was shopping and tell her what I wanted.
This white skirt has seen a lot of a wear and tear. Unfortunately no amount of bleach can bring it back to it’s original stark white colour. Alas I must find a new white skirt but until then I am going to wear this baby out.
White skirts are just as versatile as black ones. I love how the black contrasts sharply with the white! I personally prefer skirts that are high waisted. They flatter my body better than ones that sit on my hips.
I encourage you ladies to add a white skirt to your wardrobe you will not be disappointed!
