What does pintucked mean, exactly? And how is that applicable to a skirt? According to the wisegeek, pintuck refers to stitching a fold of fabric together in a pleat, to create a visual line at the chosen point. Indeed, “pintuck” pleats are present at the front of the skirt.
My review below:
What: Pintucked pencil skirt in lace by J.Crew
When: Winter 2016
How (Material): Cotton and polyester upper, poly lining.
- Look: the green color is so gorgeous, very close to a D&G dress I got on super sale at Saks last Spring (I shall post a review soon). The dress is similar to this sold-out version. This J.Crew pencil skirt elongates your figure through its midi length. It is versatile so you can dress it up or down.
- Pairing: The green shade would pair very well with the Ratti print Lena (review).
- Comfort: Very comfortable.
- Quality: Good. I would prefer 100% cotton lace but the mixture of cotton and poly does work here. And again, very gorgeous shade of green.
- Sizing: True to size. The back of the dress at the waist contains elastic to add stretch.
Why Not (Cons): Am not too crazy about elastic waistbands but this skirt makes it work so it is up to your preferences.
Sissi’s Verdict: Keeper! What do you say?
