I've loved this Loft tulip skirt since I first saw it. The only question seems to be if it creates a faux tummy pouch. I put the gray silk ombre blouse with it because I loved the way the color of the top melted into the floral pattern of the skirt. However, with the blouse untucked, I lost the detailed tulip top of the skirt and any kind of waist delineation.
|I'm hoping you can get a good view of the top of the skirt here.|
|With the added Loft chambray jacket I completely lost the tulip detail at the top of the skirt and it may have looked odd from the side view. Unfortunately, the office is so cold that not wearing a jacket is not often an option.|
So this is the end result. I have to admit that I preferred the look of the outfit where you could see the top of the skirt, but at the end of the day (it was a long one) I still felt comfortable and current.

|I eventually went with the blouse tucked in (vanity won out I suppose) and a friend at work confirmed that it was the more flattering of the two silhouettes.|
