Save or Splurge: Prada-esque lace skirts on the high street

Lace_skirtsRemember all those lace skirts Prada sent down the runway last season? Well, those were pretty see-through, but a little bit of flesh-coloured lining makes the look perfectly wearable, and that’s something the high street has cottoned onto, producing a similar look, but with added modesty.

Neither of the two skirts above are what you might call outrageously priced, but the Principles version on the right is still more than twice the price of Next’s skirt on the left, leaving us to ask: which one would you go for? Would you save or splurge? Or would you wear neither?

    Actually, I could make that skirt work with a white turtle, opera length string of black pearls and opaque tights…

    Hm, I prefer the “save” actually.

    I prefer the “save”. I think the size of the lace print will make me look less like a giant cow 😛

    I like the “save” skirt, but I don’t know that I would wear it. I’m not a huge fan of lace, but I might be tempted to try Kruggie’s outfit idea…

    I like both, possibly preferring the “save” version because of the waist.
