You know those items of clothing you are not too sure about at first glance, but as soon as you take the chance to try it on— everything just works instantly? Well this happened to me with this bold printed wrap skirt from Anthropologie’s new plus-size line APlus. I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of crossover pieces and the use of fun patterns. The brand even got plus-size super models like Candice Huffine and Paloma Elesser to be the faces of the charming and unique collection.

I have always been such a fan of the classic etherial Anthropologie aesthetic and now that they are offering sizes 16W-26W—I could finally fit into the brand and I just had to try it out. Discovering this spritely printed skirt in their new collection was love at first sight. Though I typically don't opt for a midi length skirt I was feeling adventurous and tried it on for size. As soon as I felt the skirt easily slide over my hips, it felt as if it was made specifically for my body. I was sold.

“So Margie, whats so great about this wrap skirt?” you ask. Any time I am trying out a new item of clothing, I always go through the same internal questions to see how it stacks up against competitors to help justify if it’s a solid purchase or not. First and foremost is the sizing and comfort of the garment. In the case of this stellar wrap skirt, it’s offered in sizes 1x to 3x. Personally, I am wearing a size 2x which fits incredibly! This is all due to the secret elastic band in the back of the skirt which provides ease and comfort all day long... hallelujah. Did I mention the design is a faux wrap skirt so you don't actually have to go through all the hassle of untying the whole thing every time you take it on and off?

Next up is the “style-ability” of the garment which is all about how many different ways I can wear the item. I found that even though the skirt was a bold red printed skirt there were a ton of ways to style it in new and interesting ways. Most importantly, it passed the “can I dress this up and down?” test with flying colors. It looks effortlessly chic during the daytime when paired with a white crop tee and white booties or dressed up in head-to-toe black and with a fashionable moto jacket — which instantly adds some edge to a date night look.

Last but not least, it’s all about the price point. This wrap skirt retails for $120 and the new collection as a whole retails from around $38 to $260. Compared to the overall APlus line, the skirt was priced in the middle of the spectrum. However, since it can be styled in so many fun ways I was able to justify the purchase.

Don't have time to check out all 120 styles? No worries! Keep scrolling to shop some of my favorite spring styles from the collection available now on anthropologie.com and in select retail stores.
