Fabulous Find of the Week: Kmart Draped Skirt


This week’s Fabulous Find is from one of my favorite “wild card” stores to find unexpectedly cute stuff – from clothes, to shoes, to accessories, to home goods. Yup, I’m talking about Kmart!

This week, I chose this black, draped skirt from Kmart because I don’t think you can ever have enough skirts in your closet… especially ones like this, that are classic with a twist. The draping on this skirt is both stylish AND flattering, which makes it a must-have. And on top of all of that? It’s only $15!

Outfit Inspiration

Now that you’ve checked out the skirt, read on to see three different ways to wear it!

1. Trendy Boho

This look is great because it takes the skirt, which is a fairly dressy piece, and makes it perfectly casual for daytime. The combination of the simple skirt and this ultra-casual tribal print tee creates an awesome day look that’s both comfortable and stylish. Pair the skirt and top with some bright, interesting sandals and a handful of eclectic accessories to finish the outfit.

2. Weekend Chic

This outfit is classic and chic, which makes it perfect for pretty much any occasion. The skirt, this time, is paired with a classic striped tee and a pair of nude flats. To keep the look simple and modern, I went extremely minimal with accessories, adding only some black wayfarers and nude lipstick. Throw your hair up in a sleek bun to top off this chic look.

3. Night Out Shimmer

This last look is obviously the most dressy, and would be perfect for a fun night on the town with the girls – whether you’re at a trendy restaurant, swanky bar, or cool nightclub, you’ll be perfectly dressed. This shiny, wet-look gold tee adds just enough pizazz without being gaudy, because the classic black skirt tones it down. Black wedges elongate your legs while dressing up the outfit. Finish off with some bold black jeweled accessories.

Your thoughts?

So what do you guys think – would YOU wear this skirt? Do you ever shop at Kmart? Which look was your favorite? Let me know what you think!

    I have a similar skirt and always have a hard time wearing it! Because it appears the waist is kind of high, would you suggest tucking the tops in?

    Wow, I’m surprised that this came from Kmart. I would definitely buy this. My favourite look was weekend chic I could see myself wearing it.

    I didn’t go to KMart for a good 10 or 15 years, but my co-worker told me they have cute shoes, so since there’s one fairly close to my house, I went… this was about a year ago. Now I periodically stop in, because they do have a few good finds! Shoes are good, and a few random clothing pieces.

    I love this skirt! My favourite outfits were the first and second, so cute and fun. I personally find a black skirt like this to be one of the things that gets the most wear in my closet – when you can wear a skirt for day or night, casual or dressy, that’s definitely a winner in my book. :)

    I have a skirt very similar to this one that I got from Goodwill! You never know what you will find at thrift stores and unlikely places like Kmart! Great post!

    I actually swear by K-mart. I thought it was such a crappy place to shop, but then my sister took me there a couple months ago! I got a fuzzy white jacket for $4!!!! I recently went sandal shopping there and picked up some adorable pairs in the Kid’s section (if you have a shoe size under a 7, you can shop in the Kid’s Section).

    I was really surprised, but they actually are a decent place to shop, and they have REALLY good sales.

    This is an excellent post! I think many of us could re-create these looks with items we already own pretty easily, which is a huge plus. Very well thought out outfits!

    I can’t believe that you found this skirt at Kmart! Crazy! I’ve only been in Kmart once and never thought of it as selling trendy clothes but that skirt is to die for! I’ve also seen some cute fashions at Target and their jewelry selection is awesome too :)
