I’ve never quite been a big fan of skirts. But I think my mind has just been changed by the Royal Robbins Embossed Discovery Skirt.
The main reason for my newfound crush is simple. The fit. It’s rare, no it’s been never, for me to find a skirt that fits me well in the waist and then hangs in just the right manner (not too tight, not too billowy) and at just the right length (not too short, not too long) that I’m comfortable in it. Yay for Royal Robbins.
But with the Embossed Discovery Skirt, it’s not just about the fit. This skirt has some features that are good for travel.
On the right side, it’s got both a mesh-lined zippered pocket and a lower hanging pocket that snaps shut. The zippered pocket is large enough for a passport or cellphone although I don’t know if that’s where I’d place either. More likely I’d keep some small amount of cash in there. On the left side, there’s another pocket that snaps shut. Again, good for some lightweight items such as a bus or train ticket or even a small notebook.
The embossing throughout the skirt is subtle but still quite feminine as you can see from the photo below.
The material has a bit of Spandex in it so there’s also a nice stretch to the skirt, making it easier to get in and out of a plane seat.
A few other deets:
- The material is UPF 50+
- The skirt zps in the back
The Embossed Discovery Skirt comes in three colors – Light Taupe (pictured at top), Light Aqua (at right) and Obsidian.
