Petra Skirt Scenic Red.
It’s been an age since we have done a cute little mini shape for our range of skirts (because we love the sunset and jeanie a little too much!), and this little cutie is ticking all boxes for us this season. Features: The Petra mini is based off the Petra pinafore we released earlier this season, but we’ve taken our favourite bits like the angled pockets and double stitched seams and turned them into a perfectly fitting title skirt to wear with our leggings or stockings all year round. We wanted a cute little shape to wear with our leggings (which we can’t get enough of!) but we also didn’t want anything too pleated or full. Petra is the perfect little Aline shape to wear with some stockings in winter, or throw on some of our cool viscose Every Day leggings in summer too. She is a great length on hot summer days, and we have aded a short front fly, jeans stud closure and a sweet little waistband you can tuck into. A smooth back with darts to bring her in at your waist means she sits best at mid to high waist. The cut shows off our unique fabrics perfectly, without them being too busy or too much. We love the use of double stitching on the seams which shows off the shape and gives it as classic jeans feel in the denim, but keeps the structure and integrity of the skirt in a practical way too. and speaking of practical, of course there are deep useful pockets too! Which add interest and fit lots of bits and pieces you might accumulate each day, or it will even hold your phone.
HOW TO WEAR: The Petra skirt is a wonderful shape to tuck your tops into, ones that spring to mind for us are basics like Sybil, Flutter, Rizzo and Ripley tees, as well as blouses like the Shirley Shirt, Shelley top and even our Indigo tee. We love her paired with pieces with a slightly feminine feel, but she works equally as well with a structured top for work. Throw one of our basic wool or denim versions on in winter with tights and boots, or wear her all through summer in our prints with sandals and a belt. We love Petra paired with our Clementine Cardies as the shorter proportion is perfect with the Clementine length. We also wear ours with the Carla Koala Jumpers, our Chelsea Capes and Helen coats for a dressier look. We love the new Scarlet Skivvy teamed back with our Petra, as the look is quite classic and 60’s mod. Petra is structured enough to be paired with a pair of sneakers casually, or dressed up for work with some of our darker leggings and some boots. The possibilities are endless with Petra as she is such a classic shape you will never get sick of. We love wearing ours all year round and hope you’ll adopt this cute new shape to work with your existing made590 pieces.
