Meet Azure: World's Most Versatile Skirt
I've got a whole lotta of love and one critical piece of constructive advice to share about LuLaRoe Key Piece #4: Azure Skirt, black, courtesy of LuLaRoe Consultant Amy Homan.
So Right, It's Wrong
First, the bad news. Azure is sized all sorts of wrong.
Actually - no. Azure is sized all sorts of right.
By the time Amy contacted me to offer up a black Azure skirt for the capsule, I thought I'd finally wrapped my head around LuLaRoe's cray interpretation of the metric system. In real life I wear a 6/28 pant. In a LuLaRoe Cassie skirt, I float away in a M. So naturally I requested an XS Azure.
Imagine my frustration when I pulled on my new Azure and it fit like, well, an XS. Tight.
Lesson: Order your true size in Azure.
The Good News
Azure is the most versatile skirt ever! I styled it as a skirt, as a trapeze top, over a Julia dress and under a cinched Perfect Tee. In every instance - power proportions!
Take a look.
The Woman Who Wore 2 Skirts
For my first act, I styled Azure as a trapeze top over a cheetah print Cassie skirt (courtesy of LuLaRoe Consultant Lorean Bradley). See what I mean about power proportions? When worn as a top, Azure's fitted bodice and swingy hem make it a perfect strapless accompaniment to the slim lines of a Cassie skirt. Throw on a cropped jacket and you could get away with this outfit at the office. After 5, lose the blazer and head for happy hour.
Let's say happy hour ended at 8AM, on someone else's couch. No Judgement! No worries! After a simple shirt to skirt swap and shoe switch, no one's the wiser. It's a totally different outfit! Who says a cheetah can't change its spots?
I'm So Over Julia
Outfit #3 features yet another garment re-interpretation: my girl Julia Coral as a top under Azure. A scarf-turned-belt adds detail at the waist while cheetah wedges remind your co-workers about your true nature and last week's wild Wednesday night.
A Cinch to Style
For the last look of this collection, I play up Azure's classic a-lines with a billowy bottomed Perfect Tee. At first attempt, Azure + Perfect Tee was an imperfect pairing; the top's handkerchief hem just, well, hung. With one little twist (at the mid-back on the inside of the Perfect Tee, adhered with a hair tie) the proportions are perfected. A cinch to style!
