*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*
Regina requested a few picks for striped maxi skirts that aren’t paper thin, so here we go:
Talbots Summer Stripe Maxi Skirt – was $79.50, now $34.99
Opacity is easier if you’re working with darker colors, but I trust Talbots to avoid transparent knits regardless. Several customers have complained that the stripes don’t match up on the panels – which I agree is annoying, but also more common than not these days – but love the fit and feel. Available in this navy/pink stripe or navy/off-white stripe in sizes XL – XL. Also in petite and petite plus sizes. Oddly not in non-petite plus sizes, but they do have this cute gray/white stripe maxi in 1X – 3X. If you like the diagonal stripes but want black and white, try this one.
Karen Kane Contrast Maxi Skirt – was $79, now $24.99
Not a huge fan of the wide, dark waistband but it’s a fold-over from what I can tell, so it can certainly be hidden beneath an untucked top. If the side view is any indicator, these stripes DO line up and Karen Kane would never scrimp on see-through jerseys. Available in sizes S – XL. Also in plus sizes. 6pm has several Karen Kane maxis in various stripes, including this red, white, and black one. (You can order most of the same ones via Amazon, too, if you prefer.)
eci Striped Maxi Skirt – was $60, now $31.99
with code BTS
This is the riskiest bet of the evening – one reviewer said direct sun would make it less-than-opaque – but I’m throwing it in anyway because I love that waist detailing. And know that sometimes reviews show up for colorways that have sold out and believe tan and black have a decent shot at opacity. Available in sizes XS – XL. I couldn’t find a tan striped skirt in plus sizes, but this tan striped maxi dress in sizes 14 – 28 is fab.
Toad & Co Keyboard Skirt – was $72, now $35.99
With a nice, high cotton content I’m hoping this slimmer-fitting skirt will be sufficiently opaque. Again, that fold-over waistband can be disguised by an untucked top. Also comes in purple/black, white/blue, mint/brown, red/olive, pink/grey, and wider grey/white stripes. Available in sizes XS – XL. Size availability varies by color. This similar skirt comes in sizes 1X – 3X.
Other not-currently-on-sale resources for striped maxi skirts:
- Kohl’s – Just about every kind of stripe imaginable, with petite and plus options, too.
- Nordstrom Rack – A few of these are see-through on purpose, but most look opaque. This slim style is fun.
- Amazon – Your best bet for true variety, with more than 200 options. If you’re open to alternative stripes, this tie-dye skirt is fab.
