The year is 2021 and I am thrilled to announce that cotton & linen petticoats are finally making their way back to closets all over the world. And for good reason. Petticoats are the perfect layering piece that can also be worn alone as a nightgown or skirt throughout the year.
Personally, I own one high-quality cotton petticoat dress that hangs in my closet year-round. No matter what season it is, my petticoat is of great use to me. Today, I’d like to share 5 timeless and affordable cotton & linen petticoats so that you can also enjoy this essential piece in your wardrobe.
Petticoats at a Glance
This is a gorgeous sleeveless cotton petticoat dress (also comes in a long-sleeve option) that I use as a nightgown, a layering piece under my many dresses, and also as a top cover when I’m in the mood for change. I love the sleeveless option because I bounce back and forth between capped-sleeve and long sleeve dresses throughout the year.
If you are looking for an extra special lace trim around the edge of your petticoat, cotton candy wear is your new best friend. I love the added beauty of the lace without the added weight. Breathable, soft, and perfect for year-round layering.
I could not love this linen underskirt petticoat more than I do. It is so unique and the color is stunning. My favorite part of this petticoat is the expandable waist that looks extremely comfortable. If you are keener on linen than cotton, I highly recommend this option.
Cotton and Linen petticoats do cost a pretty penny and are an investment in any closet. If these prices are out of your range or if you wish to support the secondhand market (which we always stand behind), please search in your local vintages markets (tons of petticoats to choose from) or search online in your country’s secondhand online marketplaces like eBay, Etsy Secondhand, Thredup, Vinted, etc.
