Save or Splurge?, Vol. 5: Black & White Stripe Skirt


Save or Splurge? is a post where I’ll show you an item from Target and its higher end version that probably inspired it.

Oh wait, another Save or Splurge? post that features a striped skirt? Didn’t we just have one last week (see here). Color me amazed. But there is probably no pattern that I love more than stripes (see all my stripe looks here), so you all don’t mind see another one, right? The black and white stripe skirt combo is back this year, and I am super pumped about it. Classics never go out of style, and I don’t think you can get more classic than this combination of color and pattern. On the left is a skirt from the T by Alexander Wang brand, which sells for $125 (here). Target’s version of this classic style in on the right and retails for $20 (here). That’s a difference of $105!

I wanted a classic black and white stretch pencil skirt all last year, but could never find one that was 1.) in my budget and 2.) fit right. This Target one has already become mine, so get ready to see it pretty much all the time come spring/summer.

Which one do you like better? Alexander Wang or Target?

    I actually like the proportions of the target stripes better. Plus those stripes would look better on a pear shape, which is what I am.
