Help Desk: Can You Find a Cheaper Alternative to This Neutral Skirt?

Today's question comes from She's Still Got It reader Krysta: 

I'm looking for a neutral colored skirt (grey or natural color) to wear over leggings or tights with boots. It needs to be work appropriate (so not super short) but cute. I found one at LOFT (not on their website though) but it was $70 and I pretty much never pay full price. Any ideas?

Here's the skirt Krysta wants:


If you can wait, Krysta, the first thing I'd advise you to do is get on LOFT's mailing list and keep that skirt in your cart. LOFT often has fantastic sales where even new items are discounted up to 50% for a day or two and they will send you e-mails about the sales if you're on the list (today, for example, full price purchases are 25% off if your order includes pants)- and even if your skirt sells out before it's discounted, keep a close eye on it, because I've noticed LOFT often gets items back in stock.

But if you want a pretty neutral skirt RIGHT THIS VERY MINUTE? Here are some options at more affordable prices.

This classic pencil skirt from The Limited is on sale for $39.50- and it would go with just about anything.

I love this pretty tulip skirt, $43.11 from ASOS.



For a trendier look, this peplum skirt is to die for. $48 from Urban Outfitters.



Or you could opt for this cute pleated look, on sale for $38 at Max Studio.


And for casual Fridays, this khaki skirt from Old Navy is just $15 right now on sale.


Hope this helps!
