Everyone knows about the 'little black dress', aka the LBD. A piece synonymous with Chanel and now is the modern lady's essential as it can be worn from 9 to 5 and then easily transition into after work drinks, catching up with friends or even that quick grocery run after a days work. However, my thoughts on the LBD are reserved for another post. As the title aptly describes, the little black 'skirt' is the agenda for this post.
The little black skirt, or should I say the LBS (given society's obsession to shorten words - I blame texting and the 140 Twitter character count even though I am guilty, too!) has been on my essential's list for quite some time. I find it less restricting in the sense that I can style it to suit my needs a lot more then a LBD. The above flatlays are just a few options I quickly pulled together during my study break (just over a month until exams finish, so more posts will definitely be a priority soon). Definitely looking forward to capturing some outfit photos with the skirt on.
Quick facts on the skirt - skater style, pleats and neoprene. Not my usual material choice but it holds the pleating detail really well and barely wrinkles. So yes, I did sacrifice on the material, which is something I try and avoid. However, given it is a skirt the disadvantage of it being a non breathable material is not too much of an issue...I hope. I will keep you updated on this as Summer rolls around the corner and maybe it will be the final verdict on neoprene (for me that is)!
