Skirt is not Pink & White!

    When I ordered this I thought it was going to be a white skirt with pink embroidery. The pink was bang on, but the white was khaki. Also, the pockets are not very flattering. I could have lived with the pockets, but not the khaki so I returned the skirt.

    Didn't Work for Me

        I had previously ordered the pink diamonds version of this skirt in 4R but it was mistakenly a 4 Petite and much too short for me and I didn't like the tan background color. So when the red/vanilla version became available in a 4L, I grabbed it. But it looks like the 4R would have been perfect (27" waist/36" hips, 5' 5" height.) This felt too long and matronly on me. If it had been the right size I think I would have kept it. But in this longer length, the A-Line aspect of the skirt was very pronounced and just not flattering. The quality is great and the red embroidery is very beautiful. I wish it would have worked for me, especially at the sale price. But I sent it back right away. Not for me.

          This is a lovely and tremendously well made skirt. The issue for me is that color is so dark blue, that it appears black. But the quality is very high and I would love to purchase some of the other designs, as well. It is a great investment as it is versatile and stylish.

            I love this skirt. It goes with everything and looks terrific. The first day I wore this I got two compliments and nailed the job interview I went to. This skirt is classy and rich-looking (in a sumptuous way not $$$) but easy to wear and comfortable. I love Boden because I sew and I recognize all the lovely tailoring details that go into their clothes. This is a winner.

                The first time I saw this skirt I knew I had to have it. I ordered it in a 4L, although I wear a 4R. It's worth the trip to the alterations shop. I can't wait to wear it! Fits great!

                  This is a fun skirt, but the weight and structure make it perfect for the casual work environment. It is a little stiff but I would guess with wear the stiffness will lessen. I ordered my regular Boden size and it fits perfect. The one not so great thing is the pockets on the seam but they don't poke out very much , so I can live with them.

                    Wonderful skirt as usual from Boden. I have MANY skirts from Boden, and this fits just as expected. I love that the background isn't white, more light tan. This will let me wear the skirt a little past summer. Love the pockets too.

                    Pretty Skirt

                        I ordered this skirt in pink - precisely because other reviews stated that the color was darker than depicted and I absolutely love pink with brown tones. It's really cute and well made with a very flattering fit (the cut is similar to the Lois and Lena skirts). The skirt is definitely more of a dark beige or linen color which tones down the hot pink diamonds. For me, this is a good thing because anything lighter/brighter would have been a little too juvenile-looking. I'm 5'5"/105# and the length of the 2R comes right to the knee. While this skirt is definitely more of a novelty piece and will probably never reach "staple" status in my closet, it was on sale and a nice little pop of color to throw on every now and then. In my opinion, the best thing about it is the tan/pink color - pretty!
