Next Sequin Maxi Skirt

August 21st, 2013

Those lovely people at Next gave me the opportunity to choose an item to review during my birthday month, and there was just one item that I had in mind. The Sequin maxi skirt is quite possibly one of the most beautiful items of clothing I have ever seen.It is also an item that despite being dressy, will give you loads of opportunities for wear. I’d seen it on a great blog called ‘What Lizzy Loves‘, another blog I discovered thanks to Avenue 57, and knew it would have to be in my wardrobe as soon as possible. I’m really pleased to say I love it as much ‘in the flesh’ as I did in pictures.

When you think of a slinky sequin skirt, you automatically think of an item of evening wear. And yes, I think with strappy gold sandals and a simple silk camisole, this would be perfect for a black-tie event. But to keep this skirt for special occasions only would be a real waste, for this is perfect for everyday wear. So, taking cues from ladies like Lydia Bright and Beyonce and those other queens of daytime sparkle, I wore this skirt for a bloggers lunch, dressing down the elements of sparkle with daytime basics.

The skirt is in a lovely stretchy jersey material, and has an elasticated waistband, making this a super comfortable, as well as a super pretty option, and perfect if you’re planning a food and drink blowout when you wear it. The length is perfect for me (I’m 5ft 7) I was only wearing flat pumps and the skirt fell just above them, making it a maxi, but not a floor scraper. The colour is described as blush, which is a sort of nude/beige shade, perfect for the end of summer, but this will still be great come winter time too. I teamed this with a basic black t-shirt and beaded necklace, flat Mary Janes and a denim jacket for a casual daytime look.

I’ve been suffering from a horrendous coldsore for the past week, so the skirt gave me a touch of glamour when I was feeling anything but. It really is the perfect skirt.

I’m off to Wales for the bank holiday and plan on wearing it again with black flip flops and a pale pink vest top for a beachy look.

The skirt also comes in  great pewter shade that I will definitely be getting next.

    The skirt looks lovely on you. Cold sores are a nightmare. The only thing which works for me is Zovirax.

    Thank you so much for the mention x
    You look fab in it. I agree about not keeping it for special occasions. If I get one I might try it with boots and a chunky knit. I’m 5 ft 9 so hopefully it will be long enough. I love the grey too. Thank you again xxx love Liz xxx
