Halogen Prism Eyelet Skirt ($79)

I love eyelet.  Actually, my adoration verges on obsession.  It’s so breezy and flirty, the epitome of spring.

This eyelet pencil skirt from Halogen is a really interesting piece.  It’s outer layer long enough for work, and the inner layer is long enough that the skirt could be at home in a creative, casual or professional-but-not-conservative office.  They also make this Prism eyelet in a flirty, a-line dress.

Not crazy about the pencil shape?  I also found this box-pleated skirt from Calvin Klein that has a bit of an a-line shape.  And if you’re not crazy about the sheer detail, LOFT has a dark navy, pencil skirt that is solid throughout.

If you love eyelet, I highly recommend this MICHAEL Michael Kors top.  It’s the perfect combination of tailored and boxy.  LOFT also has this 3/4 sleeve top with an eyelet front.

Plus-size and petites?  The Halogen skirt also comes in plus-sizes, and petite sizes.  Tall?  The navy eyelet skirt from LOFT is available for taller ladies.

    I have the Halogen A-line dress and love it. However, it is not warm enough to wear it yet without a cardigan or jacket. Belle, can you give styling advice for what to wear with the dress?

  2. Joules says:

    I’m a huge fan of eyelet too, though I’d never considered it in black. Usually my eyelet purchases are in the white or pastel range.

    I love the dark eyelet I’ve seen around, but anything that outlines your legs through a sheet fabric seems inappropriate for work to me. I might get the LOFT one, though!

    I love this, and it would be perfectly appropriate at my architecture firm. Does Halogen fit true to size?

    • Ashley says:

      Halogen skirts are the best! The Halogen skirt I have, I had to get taken in because sizing down was not an option, as the skirt was too tight. I think it depends on the material the skirt is made of.

      I don’t think that answers your question, but I hope it’s helpful.

  5. I love eyelet too. Definitely going to try the Loft one. I know some people say eyelet is only for little girls, but I really don’t care.

    • Belle says:

      I don’t buy that at all. Eyelet is for everyone, if they feel like a little girl in it, that’s their problem.

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]

The Range: Lounge/Travel Sets

If the pandemic did one thing for women, it brought back sweatpants as acceptable attire. But then, fashion decided that we couldn’t wear regular sweat pants, we needed to wear fancy sweat pants. And while it would be easy to disparage the ideal of luxury sweatpants made for chic, casual wear…have you felt how soft […]
