Retro Striped Skirt

I walked into Red Light Vintage in Seattle’s U District a couple of months ago and this skirt was being steamed. It hadn’t even made it to the racks before I snagged it. I tried it on, fearing it would be too small. It fit perfectly. Twelve dollars later, it was mine. I love the angles of the stripes and how the panels are sewn together to create a flattering,¬†chevron shape.

I wore it with a turtleneck and casual boots, but this will look good with stacked oxfords or dressy boots too. I’ll try changing the colors of my tights and top to create different looks. The colors are very autumnal but I bet you’ll see this a few more times on me between now and summer.
