I don’t think I have ever worn an item of clothing that has made a bigger statement than this fabulous print asymmetric high-low jacquard skirt. It was the most impulsive of impulse buys and I absolutely love it. Despite being a style blogger and having so many clothes that I recently added more rails to my dressing room, (by dressing room, I mean a tiny but incredibly hardworking spare bedroom in which I’ve maximised every centimetre of space with storage), it’s actually very rare that I go shopping. This skirt aside, I honestly can’t remember when I last went into a fitting room. I buy most of my clothes online and receive the rest from those brands I work with. On this particular occasion, I was in London with Michelle, The Barefaced Chic, for a round of Autumn Winter Press Shows. We found ourselves in the Oxford Street branch of Coast and this skirt was there staring me in the face. Love at first sight, I was utterly smitten. I tried it on, it fitted beautifully, Michelle loved it too, so I bought it.
A show-stopping skirt needs only a very simple top, one that is neat and that tucks in. This high necked top with scalloped sleeves, a detail I love, ticks every box.
The skirt is like an origami structure. The exquisite folding gives it oodles of volume which is further emphasised by the asymmetric high-low length. It feels heavy when on the hanger, but not when being worn. It moves, swishes in fact, with the body and falls perfectly and beautifully. It’s a skirt for twirling, for swooshing and for partying-I wore it to my close friend’s 50th birthday party. It’s a skirt for enjoying, for having fun in and it makes me smile just looking at it. To me, it’s a work of art and I adore it.
A skirt this fabulous needs a jewel of equal magnitude. How perfect then, this large Swarovski crystal cocktail ring from my friend Lisa, The Sequinist’s shop.
And because it’s a skirt for celebrations, my champagne glitter Jimmy Choos, seven or eight years old and still my all time favourite pair of shoes, add a touch of sparkle.
Love Lizzy x

Oh my heavens, Liz. This is magnificent on you! I love it. I want it. I can't stop staring at it! You look amazing, and you're so right, that green ring is absolutely perfect with it, which thrills me to bits. xx
Thank you thank you thank you! It was love at first sight and it was more exciting because Michelle was there to witness it!!!! The ring couldn't be more perfect and I will be ordering it in different colours. Thank you for the green one- it is beyond stunning xxxx
Well first of all it's my favourite colour combo of pink & green. Secondly it's my favourite high-low hem. Thirdly it's a palm print. Oh and Fourthy, is there auch a thing as fourthly? Anyway fourthly, YOU LOOK HOT!
Thank you Michelle! Yes, it's a beautiful colour combo isn't it. I adore it too. I'm so glad you called it a high-low hemline because I honestly didn't know what it was called so I decided upon asymmetric. I'm going to add a hashtag to my Instagram now! xxx
You look gorgeous Liz. I'm surprised that hasn't been all over Instagram because it's such a beautiful skirt. It's the first time I've seen it. Well done for finding it x
Thank you so much. I know exactly what you mean Donna. It's very "now" isn't it with the leaves the pink/green combo and the hemline. I'm sooo glad I found it and really can't wait to wear it again xxx
A wonderful skirt, perfectly trendy and a great pair of heels to go with 😉
Thank you very much and yes, I do love my glittery Jimmy Choos! Perfect for parties! xxx
The skirt is gorgeous and it looks great on you! The ring matches perfectly with the skirt and your nail polish really makes it pop and adds to the tropical feel of the look. I love it!
Thank you Sasha, yes, the ring is the perfect shade of green and a strong enough design not to get lost! I really can't wait to wear it again, Lizzy xxx
Thank you Josep-Maria xxxx
Liz, I loved this on you as soon as I saw you in it. I could see the twinkle in your eye and yes, you certainly looked like you wanted to twirl! I hope you get many, many occasions to swish and swoosh and twirl your heart out. You look stunning my friend xxx
Thank you my lovely! I loved our trying on session and I really hope to be swooshing and swirling again in it very soon. Do you think the twinkle in my eye had anything to do with the fizz we managed to consume in Covent Garden? xxx
That and the man in your life 🙂 xxx
I think that he has EVERYTHING to do with the twinkle in my eye! xxxxx
