Insomniac Sale Picks: Wide Waistband Full Skirts

*In this late-night feature – which will run Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Jori requested a few picks for wide waistband full skirts – ones that look like this – so here we go:

Poplin Full Skirt – was $108, now $81

Wow. This one is calling to me, friends. Between the wide waistband, the sassy full skirt, and those inverted pleats this is just about my favorite skirt silhouette. Available in sizes 2 -16 in stone, some sizes sold out in this blue but available in July, and only size 6 in solid black.

Jones New York Pleated Skirt – was $131, now $91.20

This silhouette isn’t quite as voluminous as the first option, but still has the swingy fun of a full skirt. This is a very office-friendly style and color, but would work equally well with a cute tee or absolutely anything nautically themed. Available in sizes 4 – 16.

Anne Klein Pleated Skirt – was $99, now $79

This floaty little number might be a bit fancier than Jori was hoping for, but it could be dressed down with a denim or leather jacket, or even a simple, fitted tee. This peachy coral is quite trendy right now, and since it can wreak havoc on many skin tones (including mine), wearing it on the bottom is a great option. Available in sizes 2 -16.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for lightweight navy blazers:

  1. ModCloth - Full skirts are a staple for this vintage-influenced vendor, and many styles will feature a wide waistband. This gingham one is darling, as is this solid black one. Read sizing info carefully before ordering!
  2. Anthropologie – Three of my favorite skirts in this style – including the example linked to in the intro – hail from Anthro. This style and silhouette seem to make it into their offerings just about every season.
  3. Banana Republic – Right now, all they’ve got is this one. But my all-time favorite wide-waistband skirt is from BR, as well as several less-loved and thrifted ones. They don’t do them every season, but they do them beautifully.
  4. ASOS – Several great options, including this glorious green one that is ever-so not-on-sale.

    Also: Talbots! They seem to have a version (or two) of this type of skirt available full price and on sale at all times. Women’s sizes, too!

    If you’re in Canada, I just bought such a skirt at Dynamite (I know) tonight. Because it’s geared to a younger crowd, the skirt is a bit short, but would do nicely with tights (unless you work in an uber-conservative office). I don’t see it on the website but there were lots in the store: both black and tan – for $15.00 – and it comes with a skinny belt (not the best quality, mind you… but still).

    I love all of them, but… why oh why aren’t there pockets on the really full ones? (I know, not part of the criteria, but with this silhouette, I’m always disappointed when designers don’t put them in.)

      I know! I definitely prefer this style with pockets.

    Thanks for posting these! I love all your outfits with that Anthropologie skirt and am excited to find something similar.
