The award of “Best Skirt in My Closet” is one I don’t give lightly, but this skirt has been out doing itself for almost 6 years! This skirt came along and swept me off my feet the moment I laid eyes on it…and it still makes my heart race when I see it in my closet. With those little velvet fan appliques, its beautiful pleats and twirlability, I just can’t get enough.

I’ve had this fan midi skirt for almost 6 years now and still love it to bits. I’ve worn it on countless adventures around the world (and just to run errands) and I still have so many ways I want to style it. My regular readers are probably a bit tired of this skirt by now…it makes an appearance about every 6 months or so on my blog. (Sorry!) But I thought today would be a great day to feature it again because it’s actually ON SALE today. That never happens! (Click here to shop it.)

But if you need a little more convincing of why I love this skirt, check out my list below!

10 Reasons Why I Love This Fan Midi Skirt So Much!

Tatyana Fan skirt

1.) It’s incredibly versatile. This skirt is perfect to wear with heels or flats. I can style this skirt with so many different tops, shoes, prints, purses, tights and jewelry! I still have a boat load of colors I want to pair with it. (I really want to pair it with a black & white striped top next – any suggestions on where to find a good one would be appreciated in the comments!)

2.) This skirt is SO well-made. I mean, I’ve had it for almost 6 years and wear it about twice a month (granted this is on average… sometimes it’s more, sometimes it’s less), and it still looks brand new.

3.) It’s machine washable – I can put this in my washing machine with no problems. No need to run up a dry cleaning bill!

4.) This is THE best twirling skirt in my closet. (Proof of that in this post.)

5.) It is so unique. I mean, how many fan skirts have you seen in your day? Haha.

6.) One of my favorite bloggers (Lauren of Grace Rock Kelly Roll) also has this skirt. So, we can plan twinsy days!

7.) It’s comfortable! The material is soft and the waist has some give…so I can wear it all day long without discomfort.

8.) No wardrobe malfunctions! The material is heavier (but not so heavy I can’t wear it in summer), so I don’t have to worry about any Marilyn Monroe moments when I wear it.

9.) POCKETS! It has pockets! ‘Nuff said!

10.) The perfect length for a skirt is a midi skirt! (That might be just me, though.)

The Best Heels in My Closet

Also, while we’re on the subject, these are the best heels in my closet. Haha. I already did a whole post on why I love these so much, though. So, I won’t drive you all crazy with that, again! (You can see that post, here.) But boy oh boy was it nice to wear my best heels and skirt together!!

    A truly great skirt is hard to come by, how fabulous to have one you continue to enjoy all these years later! I just published a post on The 17 Best Skirts Right Now and came across yours during my research. So happy I discovered you!

    I recognize this skirt from Modcloth, and I think it’s awesome that it’s still a wardrobe favorite six years later. Modcloth must be aware of what an awesome style it is if they’ve continued to restock it for so long.

    It was also interesting to read the things you value in a piece of clothing, and I like that it’s a mix of the practical and fanciful. Versatility is important to me in a garment, but it means nothing if the piece doesn’t inspire and excite me. Otherwise I’m not compelled enough to wear it to take advantage of its versatility. So the bright green color, whimsical fan print, pockets, and twirl factor would make it a winner for me, too! And what a gorgeous color pairing with the mustard yellow!

      Oh yes! It’s great that they’ve stocked it for so long. So glad you enjoyed the post, Liz! Thank you!
