“ Brand: Asos / Type: Spot Print Mini Skirt „
* Prices may differ from that shown
I bought this skirt in the recent ASOS summer sale and I absolutely love it! It's ideal for the current weather and it will definetly be one of my wardrobe essentials next summer aswell. I paid £7 for the skirt which is over half of its RRP (£15). There are 2 colours of the skirt available which are pink with black spots or pink with blue spots. I have the pink with black spots. The spots cover the whole of the skirt and are medium sized and consistent in shape, they give a very shabby chic look to the skirt. At first I bought the skirt as I thought it would look a bit like leapord print when worn with certain outfits, but it's definetly no where near leapord print as you can see from the picture lol but I still love it.
The colour of the skirt is classed by ASOS as pink as I said before but in my opinion it is more of a peachy nude colour, almost beige. I definetly wouldn't class it as pink and if it actually was pink I think it would potentially be a fashion disaster. Length wise I would class the skirt as a mini skirt, it's definetly not a micro mini and comes mid thigh on me although I am only 5'3" so obviously on taller girls it could pass as a micro mini. I do wear mini as a micro mini by simply pulling it up to create a high waist and it looks lovely, especially when tucked into a smart top as it actually looks really classy but feminine and modern at the same time.
Matching the skirt with tops can be a bit of an effort due to the colour and I personally find dark coloured tops are a no-no as they clash with the spots, and pink or beige tops are a no-no because they clash with the skirt and make it appear darker. I usually just wear mine with a nice, plain vest with the vest tucked in and then maybe a dark coloured cardi (red, brown, grey etc) to balance it out a little. The skirt can be dressed up or down with heels for nights out or ballet pumps for day to day wear. It is a suprisingly casual skirt and despite how eye-catching it looks on the ASOS picture it is not really that noticeable once it's on and matched with casual clothes. Despite its ability to be dressed up as well as down though, it's not the type of skirt I would wear (personally) to university.
The skirt is available in size 6-18. I'm a size 8 but got a 6 as I like my skirts to be as tight as possible and it fits really nicely and due to the material (97% viscose and 3% elastane) it is nice and soft and also stretchy (but not too stretchy!) and it fits just like a bodycon, showing my curves off nicely but not clinging to any lumps and bumps - it's a nice and flattering skirt but obviously not the best option for anyone who is a little self concious due to the fit. The skirt is fine to be washed in the washing machine and although I have only had mine or a couple of weeks I have worn it alot so have washed it around 3 times now and it is still in shape, there is no bobbling or fading of the colour etc. Asos reccomend to wash it with similar colours which I make sure I do just to be on the safe side. Overall I like this skirt and it's pretty versatile despite the style and print. I am happy with the price I paid however would not of paid the full RRP as I simply don't think it's ideal for a huge amount of occasions and instead is limited to been worn 'slightly dressed up' on nights out, or dressed down for a casual but classy look.
