In the picture recently taken above, I am wearing a skirt that I bought at Walmart for $5.00. Great buy, right? Well, in the moist climate at the seaside where we took a trip this fall, the skirt was fine. But, back here in dry Arizona, that skirt tends to have a lot of static cling!
The price isn’t the only concern when purchasing a new skirt. The length, the looseness, the overall cover, the way it fits our body type, and if it looks pretty are all important factors to consider. However, another very important factor we must not forget to consider is the type of fabric the skirt is made of. We are aware that it should not be clingy; it should not stick too closely to the form beneath. Polyester, which is what my skirt is made of (and which I failed to notice when I bought it) can cling a lot because of static, especially in dry climates. So, my warning for ladies who want to dress modestly and with style: do not buy skirts made out of 100% polyester.
I’m hoping to order a new denim skirt soon from Kosher Casual. It is made of a cotton/polyester/spandex blend, which I think would not cling like 100% polyester does. Do any of you have this skirt? If so, what do you think of it? I think it might be perfect for me this winter. I don’t usually buy skirts that cost more than $10 (Goodwill is a popular store with me), but since it can sometimes be difficult to find what I need, I will sometimes order online, hoping that it will be something I will love and wear all the time, and that will last me a long time.
