Last year I was a huge fan of Everlane's ponte collection short-sleeve dress (review here), so when I saw that they brought it back this season as a skirt, I knew I had to at least try it out. And I'm so glad that I did! This ponte is the perfect material for a tube skirt.
I once had a black tube skirt by American Apparel (actually I still probably have it in one of my many boxes of clothes in storage >.< ) but I find that that cotton tube skirt worked best in my 20's when I was a lot thinner. Now that I work out less, it's harder for me to pull off that skirt. So I'm really glad to have found Everlane's ponte tube skirt. The ponte material is thick but stretchy so for the most part it won't accentuate every bump. There is slight VPL if you're wearing thick underwear but for the most part it's not really noticeable. And even though I'm not a huge fan of Everlane's choice of elastic waist for some of their bottoms, it works with this skirt (and it does make it super comfy). I also like the length of this skirt on my 5'4" frame. Plus for $55 this skirt isn't that ridiculously priced (like their pleated skirt for $88 or the ponte pants at $78), but then again it only cost them $17 to make it...
Oh, and a note on sizing: I ordered this in a medium since I didn't want it to be too tight (I'm usually size 4-6 on the bottom). And for the pics above I paired it with my favorite (and only) Clare V shirt, Saint Laurent bag, and Everlane's modern oxfords.
P.S. I ordered Everlane's pleated skirt, pima stretch turtleneck and their new anorak so reviews on those coming soon!
