A fluid, midi-length slip skirt made of silky, sheeny charmeuse. The fabric is cut on the bias (diagonally,) which gives it an extra-flattering drape that hugs — but doesn't cling to — your hips and waist. It's got a covered elastic waist that just pulls on, and it looks just as great with a t-shirt as with a silk blouse.
We often hear a little trepidation in the shops around polyester, but let us set the record straight: not all synthetics are created equal. Fast-fashion polyester does not go through the same careful refinement process as the fibers used here — this charmeuse is woven in Italy and requires a finer micropoly yarn with an even smaller diameter than natural silk yarns. This gives the finished product a soft, graceful drape and a lustrous finish. And polyester has a few unique advantages: for starters, it’s machine-washable and super quick to dry. It has excellent color retention, so it takes dye beautifully and won’t fade with washing, wear, or sun exposure. It’s naturally resilient and abrasion-resistant (read: keeps its shape and doesn’t pill). And it has low absorbency, so it resists water-based stains and dries quickly… good news for anyone who’s fallen victim to a cocktail party spill or gotten caught in a spring rainstorm. In short: give polyester a chance.
