Evans Scarlett & Jo Multi Floral Print Prom Skirt 14

I have been having a love affair with Scarlett & Jo's prom dresses and separates for a little while now, and I ordered a number of them from Evans back in the summer to try. Have a look at the beautiful Multi Floral Print Prom Skirt (was £48.00, now sold out on the website but may still be available in some stores):

It's such a pretty combination of colours! I tried the skirt in a size 14, as this is the size I usually go for in Scarlett & Jo's stretchy garments.







For reference, I am wearing my Ewa Michalak S Pieprzyk 32KK/70KK bra in these photos, along with some black high heeled shoes from Primark. I have teamed the skirt with the Scarlett & Jo Black Jersey Crepe Top (was £28.00, now sold out on the website but may still be available in some stores; the grey version is still available on the Evans website here). The top is the perfect match for the skirt, and you can read my review of the top here.

When the skirt arrived I was speechless at how gorgeous it was in real life - believe it or not it's even more lovely than it looks on screen! The purples, blues, greens, and white blend together perfectly to produce a print that is incredibly feminine, striking, and unique.

The fabric itself is soft and feels of good quality, but there is no stretch to it. There does not need to be any stretch, however, as the skirt is flared and should fit most women. The most important fit is the waistband, so if you're wondering about what size is best then base your decision on this.

As with the other prom skirts I've tried, the length is absolutely perfect. It hits me mid-calf, and I am 5'4 in height. There is a black underskirt that helps give the skirt some additional volume, as well as adding a bit of warmth for these cooler months.

The thick black elastic waistband cinches my waist and makes me look extra curvy. It acts rather like a belt and helps to hold the tucked-in top in place.

With the variety of colours in the skirt, it would be possible to pick any of these out and match them with a top in that hue. I am wearing the plain black Jersey Crepe Top in these photos, but it would be great fun to wear something different. How about a pretty purple blouse, or perhaps a thin knitted top in blue? There are countless possibilities for complementing garments, and also for accessories, too.

I am so impressed with these items from Scarlett & Jo and I am very much looking forward to seeing what they come up with next. What would you like to see from Scarlett & Jo in the future?

    1. Hello there, I would sometimes wear hosiery with this skirt but on this occasion I chose not to. These photos were taken back in the summer on a particularly hot day, so I couldn't bear to put on any additional layers!

  5. Although your enthusiast's command of English is a humble one, I think what he is wishing to communicate is a fervant appreciation of what our transatlantic friends cringeworthily refer to as 'pantyhose'. This is an enlightened sentiment and one that I would support.

    1. Such eloquence - very impressive! Thank you for rephrasing Sbukinuki's comment, and my response is above. I usually choose to wear tights or stockings with a skirt or dress but on this occasion it would have been too much.

  6. The patterns are phenomenal and I love the top - it would go so well with my workwear uniform (50's skirt and blouse)!

  9. I so wish I had bought this a few weeks ago when I saw it in the sale in my local Evans store but I wasn't sure it would suit me so I left it. I went back yesterday to see if it was still there but of course it was long gone. I am so sad! I wanted to look as beautiful as you do on your blog. I'll grab one next time for sure! Thanks for being so inspiring x
