I don’t often promote specific companies or garments but I came across this very lovely, classic skirt on the Talbot’s website today and it looks like something that you’d get a lot of use out of. At under $50, this is a good deal. Talbots makes clothes that last. Their Misses size goes up to 20, and they have Petites and Plus Sizes, too.
I love the choice of colors. It’s so hard to find skirts in anything other than black or brown or navy. Camel is a wonderful neutral, and the green is very holiday-friendly.
