Fashion Review: Second Skin Skirt
After seeing how well the Wetlook capri pants from Coquette fit I had to have the Black Wet Look Skirt from Coquette as well. I knew from the other piece that I needed a large so I had to wait a bit until it came back in stock but I snagged it as soon as it did. I had a feeling that the XL would hang looser than I’d like on me.
I wear a size 10-12 in bottoms (as per usual, no specific measurements due to my history of eating disorders). According to the Coquette size chart a large will fit a size 12-14, 30-32″ waist and 40-42″ hips. The measurements that I got from the skirt, laid flat and prior to wear are as follows, 28″-36″ waist (at least), 40″-46″ hips (at least) and a length of 12″. This skirt is available in sizes small, medium, large, extra large and 1X/2X. I am 5’4″ tall and this is definitely a mini on me, which I love!
The skirt comes packaged in plastic on a Coquette hanger with a Darque by Coquette tag attached (the name of this wet look line). Like the pants the skirt also sticks to itself initially due to the fabric (82% nylon, 18% spandex). After opening the skirt and laying it flat it was still a bit wrinkled but the wrinkles seemed to smooth out quickly after I put it on. According to the tags the skirt should be hand washed only and hung to dry.
I love the way that this skirt hangs on me. It hugs my hips and thighs and then flares out after my ample booty. I think that it really shows it off.
I recently paired my new skirt with a simple v-neck black top, a handcuff necklace, some textured hose and my faux leather boots to sing karaoke at a local dive bar. I did feel like guys were checking out my butt when I was walking around that night. So it gets a male stamp of approval. I was surprised that when I got up from sitting that the skirt didn’t cling to my hose at all. Now when I was sitting on a leather bench seat it did stick a bit and ride up so you need to keep an eye out for that.
All in all I really love this skirt and think I may pick up the red version in the future as well. The Darque by Coquette collection is definitely full of head turning pieces.
