Every Body Valentina Skirt Big Aussie Rd Trip
Our brand new and super nifty winter skirt is the Valentina! She features an inner wrap feature, pockets and cute tie to the back. She is part of our Golden Apple range, is available in two lengths and is made from some of our most treasured new fabrics.
We have also made this limited edition Valentina Skirt part of our brand new Every Body range, which is based on our best selling and best fitting pieces made in extended, inclusive sizing up to a size 24. We are excited to offer our favourite styles in a wider range of sizes, so there really is something for everybody at made590!
FEATURES: The Valentina is a brand new clever design we have created for winter. She fits a range of sizes as the button across band on the inside is adjustable, and it also means she can be worn lower with just a small adjustment of where you button her up. She is sized for the waist, and looks best worn mid to high waisted. She has clever hidden pockets on the inside band, and a lovely flat apron-like front which wraps and ties up at the back while hiding the button up interior band. She also has belt loops to hold the front panel in place for you, clever! She is cute and practical, with just the right feminine appeal. The skirt is cut in panels which give a nice fullness, much like a traditional circle skirt. You will love Valentina as she comes in two lengths, a really long midi length which is great for winter with ankle boots, or a shorter knee length which works well with stockings and knee boots or even some cute sneakers. Valentina is great to wear to work, pair her with a button down blouse or shirt and cute cardigan in a matching colour. We love the longer length Valentina for her versatility and warmth in winter. The weight of the fabric gives a lovely drape and falls well with lots of movement and a nice silhouette that isn’t too full for the longer length.
HOW TO WEAR: This skirt is a lovely cut paired with a fitted long sleeve basic, tucked in to give a dressy finish. She works well with our clementine cardigans and Judy coats, as the overall shape is just the right length and feel for a fun outfit! We love her with a good pair of cute coloured tights, ankle boots and even a belt over the top of the waistband, just tuck the ties out the back of the belt. We also love Valentina going into summer as the length of both work well with bare legs or footless tights. The best thing is, Valentina is the perfect wrap skirt as she doesn’t have a flap that hangs open like a traditional one, just a cute hidden pocket detail. She will be your favourite twirly skirt to wear for a fun day out!
Step by step of how to tie the Valentina:
Here are the main steps to wear Valentina (please also check out our video on facebook and instagram which takes you through how to wear a Valentina!)
1. Step into the Valentina, and pull up using the back section (the band with the buttons and holes on it).
2. Wrap the back panel around you, and button across your tummy on whichever button hole suits your waist size best. You may need to button two buttons if you are on the smaller end of the size, but really only need one button done up.
3. Thread the front panel ties through the belt loops and wrap ties from the front apron panel across your tummy and tie at the back like a normal wrap skirt. You can make a bow or tuck the ties in after it’s tied securely in a knot.
FABRIC: Cotton Spandex Poplin 3% stretch. Light weight, fine weave which is more crisp but lighter than our stretch sateen.
