It’s no secret that a penciled midi is my favorite dress silhouette. I had so much fun styling this one here and here. They’re so undeniably feminine and classic. However I have a love hate relationship with this cut in skirts. Meaning… I love them on everyone else and hate them on me.

A lot of my hourglass and pear shaped counter parts will agree. You slip one on, take a few steps and just like that, it’s heading up your waist. Instead of looking confident and chic, you spend the whole day tugging at the sides of your skirt fighting to keep it in place.

Well after years of this battle I’ve FINALLY found one that fits like a glove, has perfect material for office to drinks and will stay in place. The secure yet stretchy waist band is a dream. Then the relaxed elastic/crepe-like material gives way to curves if necessary.

So please run, don’t walk to your nearest Milly carrier and snatch one of these up! If only it came in all colors of the rainbow!
