Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale Fit Guide 2018

Monday, August 27, 2018

Did y'all hear the big news? The Lilly Pulitzer After Party will officially be September 10-12! Lilly Pulitzer is my absolute favorite store and has two giant sales a year full of amazing deals! The sale (which is in January and then at the end of summer) is the only time Lilly goes on sale online and is final sale, meaning you can't return any of your purchases, which makes choosing the right size so important!

Today's post is always a popular one here on Chic in Carolina...my Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale Fit Guide! I started sharing my Fit Guide two summers ago (check out the August 2016 version, the August 2017 version, and the January 2018 version!) as a way to let y'all see how the items fit and how they run so shopping during the sale is a bit easier for y'all!

For reference, I am 5'7 and typically a size 4 or a small in Lilly. I typically grab those sizes first when shopping in-store but will size up or down as needed for a comfortable fit! Just as a disclaimer, I do not own everything pictured here! I live in Charlotte, North Carolina and we are lucky enough to have our own Lilly store so I try on all of the pieces that catch my eye whenever I'm in-store so I can prepare for the sale by seeing how each fits (which is one of my tips for successfully shopping the sale!).


Item Name: Lula Top
Size: Small
Fit: TTS. This top is so cute! I wound up purchasing it in another print and the fit is great, plus the fabric is stretchy and comfy!

Item Name: Madeira Pant
Size: 4
Fit: Runs oddly. I'm 5'7 and these pants were really long on me. They also fit tighter in my thighs so if I were to size up for more of a comfortable fit, they would be even longer!


Item Name: Rosalia Dress
Size: 4
Fit: TTS. This dress is absolutely stunning and the fit is perfect! The dramatic sleeves would make it perfect for a more formal event


Item Name: Robyn Top
Size: Small
Fit: TTS. It does fit a little bit shorter but I would stick with your usual size!

 

Item Name: Katia Shorts
Size: Small
Fit: TTS. These shorts are super flattering and I love that they are a bit looser than your typical chino shorts.


Item Name: Bay Dress
Size: Small
Fit: TTS. I thought this was the perfect striped casual dress with a little bit of jazz from the added detail towards the neckline!


Item Name: Lula Dress
Size: Small
Fit: TTS. Just like the Lula top, this dress is so cute and is very flattering!


Item Name: Kelsea Silk Maxi Dress
Size: 2
Fit: Runs big! I found the 2 to be a perfect fit but it's definitely on the longer side and I'm 5'7. The dress is a perfect length with wedges but if you're shorter than I am, you may need to alter it.


Item Name: Buttercup Twill Shorts (styled here)
Size: 4
Fit: TTS but these do run a tad bit big


Item Name: Pearl Romper
Size: 4
Fit: TTS. This romper is super cute and fits perfectly!

Item Name: Amisa Top (styled here)
Size: Small
Fit: TTS. This is seriously one of my favorite tops in my closet- the fit is fabulous and I love that it can be worn to so many occasions!


Item Name: Gramercy Top (styled here)
Size: Small
Fit: TTS. Another great top to have in your Lilly collection! The fit is amazing and is a summer essential!


Item Name: Jessica Short Sleeve Dress
Size: Small
Fit: TTS. I do find that this particular style is tighter in the arms/shoulders but then too loose on the bottom!


Item Name: Harper Shift Dress
Size: Small
Fit: TTS. This shift is made out of a softer material, which I love. I did think it fit a bit slimmer in my hips!


Item Name: Donna Romper (styled here)
Size: 4
Fit: TTS. This romper is super cute and fits perfectly! I love that it is a great length without being too long or too short!


Item Name: Mila Stretch Shift Dress
Size: 4
Fit: Runs small. I find that Mila dresses tend to fit on the smaller and even though this one is made of a stretch fabric, I found that it was a bit too clingy for my taste


Item Name: Donna Set
Size: 4
Fit: Runs small. The top is definitely on the smaller size and I couldn't get the bottoms to zip


Item Name: Margot Swing Dress
Size: Small
Fit: TTS. This dress is super flattering and easy to throw on for everyday wear!


Item Name: Fiesta One Piece
Size: 4
Fit: TTS. This swimsuit is so cute but the way it fits, it is a bit lower cut on the top so keep that in mind if you are more bigger busted!


Item Name: La Fortuna Off the Shoulder Romper
Size: Small
Fit: TTS. This romper is super cute but has an elastic around the waist so I wasn't a big fan of how that looked!


Item Name: Astara Top (styled here)
Size: Small
Fit: TTS. This top fits perfectly and has been a go-to of mine this summer!


Item Name: Nessa Skirt
Size: 4
Fit: Runs small. Even though this skirt is super cute, it's pretty tight and high waisted, which made it too short on me!


Item Name: Lorelie Skort
Size: 4
Fit: TTS. Is a little on the shorter side so keep that in mind if you're taller!


Item Name: Kelly Ankle Pant
Size: 4
Fit: TTS. I have another pair of these pants from a few seasons back and they all fit perfectly so stick with your usual size!


Item Name: Indira Dress
Size: Small
Fit: TTS but has a strange fit. Even though I am 5'7, I found it was too long and hit at an awkward length on me. Even though it is loose, it was pretty tight in the chest.


Item Name: Kelby Stretch Shift Dress
Size: 4
Fit: TTS but on the tighter side. I found it to be more tighter in my midsection and I wasn't the biggest fan of the fit!


Item Name: Amina V-Neck Swing Dress (styled here)
Size: Small
Fit: TTS. This dress is very flattering and I love that it can be styled for a variety of occasions


Item Name: Makenna Ponte Shorts
Size: 4
Fit: TTS. These shorts are so flattering and are the comfiest material!


Item Name: Jesse Skort Romper
Size: 4
Fit: Runs small. I found this romper to run smaller than other Lilly rompers, which y'all can see as it awkwardly tugs on me!



Item Name: Shay Dress
Size: Small
Fit: TTS. This dress fit pretty standard for a Lilly t-shirt dress for me- I love the ruffles!


Item Name: Skipper Sleeveless Dress
Size: Small
Fit: TTS. This dress is your favorite Skipper popover in dress form and is so comfortable and flattering!



Item Name: Esmeralda Shift Dress
Size: Small
Fit: TTS but definitely a tad bit looser. The XS fit similarly for me.

  4. Look at all of these gorgeous Lilly pieces! Thank you for sharing your tryon because I always wonder – I've tried a few things on over the years and am surprised by the fit, every time. I have one single Lilly dress and I LOVE it! But I shop the After Party sale every year just in case I find something I absolutely have to have – I can be a little thrifty, but maybe this year!
