Where Are You Going In This Teensy-Ass Skirt?

The New York Post wrote a scathing blog about this itty bitty Jacquemus skirt, calling the $260 wisp of fabric a “glorified loincloth.” Jacquemus—the same designer behind those tiny purses that caused a lot of chatter at Paris Fashion Week—has a penchant for making fashion staples pint sized and gargantuan, so this extreme scaling and high price tag is pretty par for the course.

Here’s what the Post had to say:

Things worth $260: a good pair of leather boots or clogs, decent “Hamilton” tickets, a dinner at Per Se.

Things not worth $260: a strip of fabric that some fancy fashion label is trying to convince me is a “skirt.”

[...]

It doesn’t come in any bright jewel tones or funky prints, but in a boring shade of ivory. It doesn’t scream playful provocation so much as Kardashian rip-off. And then there’s the price tag, which one fashionable friend rightly pointed out amounts to about $26 per inch of viscose-polymide blend fabric.

Sorry, but calling this a skirt and selling it for $260 isn’t fashion, it’s a scam!

But where the New York Post sees deception, I see potential. After all, nothing says I’ve arrived like a fucking $260 piece of stretchy fabric that barely covers your cooter.

Here are a few places where wearing a pricy transparent skirt is, in fact, a very practical item of clothing to wear:

  • A fancy beach.
  • The bedroom before a lil’ fuckaroo.
  • Family reunion.
  • A convention where you’re cosplaying as Paris Hilton circa 2003.

Okay, I’m tapped out.

Where would you wear this skirt? How would you style it?

If my legs looked like that model’s, I’d wear the damn thing everywhere.
