1 Dress 4 Looks Take 26


I can’t actually remember why I ended up buying this Sailor Tiered skirt from Metamorphose. I remember that I bought it via Wunderwelt and it being under 5000 JPY (which I remember because I wanted to use a discount code that had a minimum spend of 5000 JPY), but that’s about it. The simplicity of the design and fully shirred waist were probably what attracted me to it, though, other than the price, of course. And since its purchase it has been a very versatile addition to my wardrobe, one that I often wear casually whenever the mood strikes. So far you’ve seen me wear it on this blog three times, in outfits from December 2017, July 2018 and February this year, but that is far, faaar from exhausting the possibilities for this skirt, so let’s see some more!

Look 1: Sailor

| Fi.n.t. cutsew | Hell Bunny cardigan | Innocent World Anchor OTKs | Imperial Fiddlesticks
headbow | Two Days Slow bow clip | offbrand shoes, beret and necklace |
Let’s get the obvious one out of the way, shall we? It’s a sailor skirt, so it’s only appropriate to do a sailor look with it. And now that I have not only a sailor collar cardigan, but a top too, I am no longer restricted to wearing my sailor looks on cooler days. Nothing more to say about this, really.

Look 2: Vintage Lady

| Infanta Swan Lake blouse | MuFish tights | Innocent World brooch | offbrand shoes | vintage hat |
Now this skirt is primarily sweet, however, as it’s such a simple design, I wanted to show that it could work very well for classic. (In case my very last worn look didn’t show that clearly enough.) And I also really wanted to use that hat because I don’t wear it enough and it’s super cute. The more I think about it, the more I feel like an all white/cream coord with blue or red accents is also becoming very me.

Look 3: Casual Sweet

| Metamorphose Crown Label cutsew | Metamorphose hair clip and shoes | Angelic Pretty wrist
cuffs | Madillustration brooch | offbrand beret and socks |
I was torn whether to go for a more complete coordinate or for a mono-brand one. In the end I went with the former, since it looks a little bit better on a photo. If this was to be a coord using only items from Metamorphose, I’d have to take away the beret, brooch and wrist cuffs and replace the socks for my Heart Ladder Lace OTKs. Which would still be nice, but it wouldn’t feel like a complete and balanced outfit like this one does. And I actually still haven’t worn this cutsew since I got it (mainly because on me it falls shorter than I’d like and I feel a bit self-conscious, but the sleeves aren’t big enough for most JSKs), so I’m trying to make up for it by showing it off in something that’s actually a nice coord.

Look 4: Something Different

| offbrand cutsew, shoes and bracelets | Angelic Pretty Salon de The Rose OTKs | Sweet Dreamer
headbow | Enchantlic Enchantilly necklace |
This is honestly the best description for this look. As I was laying these coordinates out, I felt like I’d just been redoing things I’ve done with this skirt before. Or things that would be pretty obvious for me to do. So I wanted to do something different, my eyes fell on these socks, I remembered the cutsew – and the rest is here. And honestly? I quite like it. It’s fun, it’s cute, very spring-like, so hopefully when the weather warms up I’ll be able to wear this out somewhere. And it’s lavender, which you don’t get to see on this blog a lot. If that’s not something different, then I’ve no idea what is.

And there you have it, four looks with this versatile skirt. That is still barely scratching the surface of possible combinations, I had at least 4 other looks written down on paper that I haven’t gone for in the end. But that’s ok, I wear this skirt a lot casually, so I’ll get round to those coords eventually.


  1. I really like these looks, but especially the last one - as you say, it's just fun!

    1. I am actually itching to wear it, but of course now that I do, the weather's gone back to being chilly.

  2. Your coords are so beautiful! My favorite one is the Vintage Lady!

    1. Thank you so much. The Vintage Lady one is so wearable: doesn't matter if you're going to fancy afternoon tea or just having a solo stroll round the park, it works for many occasions.

  3. My favorite is the Sailor, but it's impressive how many looks you can make from that one skirt! I wouldn't have thought such an iconic Sailor piece would be this versatile, and you got it for such a great price too!

    1. I think it's because that skirt isn't obviously sailor. Had it been navy with white stripes, it probably would've been a bit more limited in how many looks you can put together with it. But since it's ivory with brown stripes (which often don't even look brown they're that dark), it's a lot more subtle, which lends itself to all kinds of coords. It was a great investment, I want to do a whole rainbow with this skirt one day.

  4. I really like the last coord. Super cute! :-)
