The Perfect Skirt Search

Last month I put the call out for any advice on where to find the best skater style skirt. So many of my awesome followers jumped on board and gave me lots of links but the one brand that stood out the most was Blackmilk.

The BlackMilk skater skirt has always been for girls around the globe but if you are a little bigger in the booty like myself you might have noticed they are way too short for your shape.

Never fear as they have recently released a new version which is a little bit longer than the previous skater skirts. Offering extra coverage and the perfect length that hits just above your knees.  I personally found the new length absolutely amazing for my shape as with a big booty comes some curvy AF hips.

I'm wearing the XL and I find the fit of all of the BM items to be perfection on my body. The fabrics offer lots of stretchy and are super soft to the touch. As you can see in these images the skater style skims my hips and really flatters my curves in the best possible way. The lack of zips and amount of stretch means you can wear this size up to a size 20 if not higher. I'm a 18 and sometimes at 16 but this is so comfy on me.

I never thought I'd find the perfect skater skirt on my first try but this style has won! Bonus points for the addition of pockets!

For this review/shoot I wanted some creepy Halloween vibes so I've paired this with my amazing Vixen by Micheline Pitt Dracula top and a Hips and Curves Harness. I love the simple yet strong look of this complete outfit.  I also own the Classier Act Midi Skirt which is very much like this but hits under the knee. Both are perfect!

While this may not be officially a skirt I actually classify this style as my dream skirt as it offers a braces feel without all the chunky metal clasps.

Show Us Your tops is appropriately named because you can style this frock with any of your own bodysuits or tops. Made of a stunning stretch velvet that feels so dreamy and in the perfect midi length. I must admit I'm such a sucker for a midi skirt as they show just the right amount of leg and can be styled up or down with ease.

For all BM items I wear an XL and the fit on this specific style really hugs my curves. The waist and open bust bring the focus to your mid section and amplify the hour glass shape. The straps are also able to be worn slightly covering the bottom of your cup or even lower depending on which you fine more flattering. Both of these items have been in high rotation in my wardrobe as they are so versatile. I wear off the shoulder peasant blouses, bold stripes and many stunning tops with this dress every week. Now I hope a matte midi version is released in the future as I'll be needing it for summer.

I've paired this open bust skirt with one of my new favourite blouses the Gone Batty Flouncy top. This piece feature a neck bow, full-coverage length and OTT-flouncy cap sleeves. I tend to worry in a printed fabric that my bust might morph the image but this top pairs perfectly with a big bust! The bow tie is super sweet, the peekaboo neckline shows that little big of cleavage and the sleeves - the perfect length to hide any upper arm issues.

What I love most about this dark, creepy and vintage bat print is the biggest and most bold bat's placement right at the bust - it's brilliant!The fit of this top is so amazing you'll want it in 100 different prints and colours.

After testing these pieces I can officially say I'm sold and I've found my absolute favourite skater styles in both short and midi. I can't wait to get my hands on more and review them!

Many thanks to the AMAZING Brooke Orchard for working her magic with me on these looks.
