Ann Taylor skirt review

Petite vs¬†regular sizing on a 5’1″ woman

Hermes scarf

OP was my usual Ann Taylor skirt size but as of late it has been a little too form-fitting for my taste in office attire. I have a very real suspicion that someone is sneaking trans fat into my diet. ūüôā So,¬†rather than exercise,¬†I decided to size up by ordering Ann Taylor skirts in two sizes: “regular 0” and “2P.”¬†

The difference between regular and petite sizing is not major but I think the looks can be very different. I prefer the slightly higher rise at the waist of the 0R but the shorter hem length of the 2P.

Verdict: I will keep both and get the size 0 skirt hemmed. At the current length the zero looks a bit sloppy in a profile view. I may also get the skirt narrowed for more of a pencil cut shape.

The looks below are styled with the 2P skirt:

I love the versatility of a scarf. ¬†I especially like that I can easily change up between the looks throughout the day. I have worn this Herm√®s (Les D√īmes C√©lestes in Purple color way) scarf in the looks here¬†as well as on my head, as a top, and as a cape. Scarves are an easy way to add interest to an outfit. I opt for¬†skinny belts and statement jewelry when my outfits have enough¬†going on that¬†a patterned scarf would make an outfit seem cluttered.
