Ponte is pronounced "pon-tee," like "panty" with an "o." That changes things a little. Before I had images of ballerinas for some reason... point shoes, pas de deux... Now I think of panties with a British accent. Anyhoo, a ponte knit has a combo of rayon, polyester and spandex in differing amounts, and results in a super comfy stretchy but chic-looking piece that holds it shape and never wrinkles. In other words, pure awesomeness for anyone living a real life! I was drawn to this skirt because it had a bit of weight to it so I originally dubbed it my "winter skirt" after discovering some skirts have to stay in summer. However, I am certain this beauty will be cool and comfy in every season!
Just removed the elephants for a minny to showcase the skirt with a solid colour.
Was wearing this blue tee underneath for warmth, but if I were to wear this as is,
I would add a belt; YES this skirt has belt loops and a flattering wide waistband!
As a result of my education, "ponte knit anything" is on my hunting list for the foreseeable future. I would love a blazer or some pants in a ponte knit! For now, I will cherish my Chevron Ponte!
I heart you Chevron Ponte.
