Ode to Whitlam Skirt

The Muna and Broad Whitlam Skirt is a deceptively simple knit skirt which is fitted through the back but flows over the front. When we released the Whitlam we got lots of ‘yes, but how does it look on someone with a belly overhang?!’ questions- it looks just like this!

The skirt has turned out to be very easy wearing, very comfortable, and feels very stylish too! Worn with the Dulcie Boxer Briefs to ward off chub rub, you can wear the Whitlam almost anywhere and with almost anything… but, here are some of my favourite combos.

Whether it’s a matching Atrax Top for a faux-dress look or a contrasting Atrax, these mix-and-match pieces have seamlessly fit into my wardrobe! I love the Atrax and it fits the vibe of the skirt so perfectly.

I do a half tuck, but the Atrax also looks nice left loose over the Whitlam.

Knits paired with knits is always a nice, and extra-comfie combo. I like how the curved, fitted centre-back seam of the Tarlee T-Shirt echoes the fitted back of the Whitlam Skirt! I had knotted the tee at the front for a casual summer combo!

The new Muna and Broad Lobethal Shirt also got lots of time being photographed with the Whitlam Skirt. I even experimented with it as an over-shirt over the Atrax and Whitlam combo! The Lobethal brings pockets where the Whitlam doesn’t have room for any!

I particularly like how the tube skirt pokes out of the bottom of the big shirt. It has 80s vibes that I really enjoy.

Can you guess which Whitlam Skirt from my wardrobe is my favourite? This grey and black squiggled version has been a surprising winner in my wardrobe- I really feels like it pairs with so many of my makes! The matching Atrax Top pairs well with many of my me-made pants, so also gets lots of wear!

The fabric is quite a hefty ecovero knit- it drapes nicely but it’s not super clingy and you can’t necessarily spot my underwear lines through the fabric, which I appreciate a lot. I’m still on the hunt for the perfect ribbed fabric for another Whitlam too!

Finally, below there’s a little Whitlam Skirt trio with the Waikerie Shirt and Tarlee T-Shirt. On the left is View A of the Waikerie made from A+R Fabrics silk noil. I really like the cropped length of the View A with the Whitlam- no half-tuck needed here!


The coral shirt is View B of the Waikerie with long sleeves. This lightweight linen was my go-to in the hot and summery weather we had for a few days this year. Maybe it’s just because it was sweltering while I was taking these 3 photos- but I do think the Whitlam and long-sleeve Waikerie looks quite summery- like the linen is smart sun protection from the summer sun, and maybe I’m heading to the beach for a cooling dip.

The third-and-final-picture is the Tarlee T-Shirt again, but this time with the accessible envelope back. I particularly like the low-contrast colour pairing here!

And finally, hear me chat about the Whitlam Skirt on TikTok.
