Fall is upon us. If you are like me, each fall you are looking for a few new items to add to your wardrobe that will be versatile for travel, work, and play. Fortunately, many products from Mountain Khakis do just that, blend mountain culture with function and style. The Mountain Khakis Canyon Cord Skirt is a key piece already in my fall wardrobe rotation.
Features of the Canyon Cord Skirt
The Mountain Khakis Canyon Cord Skirt is composed of 18-wale corduroy and a touch of Spandex, to let you move freely and comfortably no matter what adventure you find yourself in. The Canyon Cord Skirt has a clean design and flares gradually to the hem. There are two front pockets and a small change pocket on the right side, just below the waistband. Zip fly front with Mountain Khaki Branded metal plates over the pocket junctions for a bit of detailing.
The Canyon Cord Skirt can be dressed up or down; worn with tights and boots for cooler temperatures or with bare legs and a pair of ballet flats. There are 6 belt loops to allow you to accessorize with your favorite belt. In the rear there are no pockets, which I was a little bummed about at first. The lack of pockets makes the skirt look a bit more professional or fancy, so I am learning to like the clean lines.
Mountain Khakis Canyon Cord Skirt is available in 5 different colors, perfect for fall and winter: Plum, Oxblood, Ranch, Truffle, and Navy. I’ve been testing out the skirt in Oxblood, which is a cross between garnet and maroon. It pairs nicely with browns, greens, and blues.
Sizing of the Canyon Cord Skirt
Like other reviewers out on the web, I too found the Canyon Cord Skirt to run a bit big. I ordered the same size the I typically wear in pants, including pants from Mountain Khakis, and wished I had ordered one size smaller. As a result, the skirt tends to move off my hips and land up high like “mom jeans” after sitting down for awhile. Not a huge deal as it shifts down onto my hips again while I walk.
The Canyon Cord Skirt is available in size 0 through 16, while also offering two length options, 16″ or 20″. I opted for the standard length of 20″ and it skims just above my knees (I am 5’8″ or so), which makes it quite versatile, including work appropriate. For petites, or gals that intend to wear tights or leggings with the skirt, the 16″ length might be a better option.
The Mountain Canyon Cord Skirt retails for $66.95. For more information, please visit MountainKhakis.com
It turns out, the Mountain Khakis Canyon Cord Skirt that I was testing out was a prototype that did not end up making it to production. Mountain Khakis graciously sent along the finished product that will be available soon from their website. The major change is that there are two back pockets. Also, I was given a size smaller than what I originally tested and it fits perfect. So, if you are looking to purchase this skirt consider ordering a size smaller and look for the updated back pockets.
