    I just love Boden skirts. I bought this Modern Pencil in the silver metallic and find it to be very versatile. I can dress it down a little with the right blouse to wear professionally or I can jazz it up with a sparkly top or sweater for a night out. The fit is so flattering and the length is just right (I'm tall and get the long lengths). I recommend this skirt highly! I'll be looking at other colors...

      This is a beautiful skirt, but it was pretty tight. I would definitely recommend ordering a size up.

        This was one of my first purchases from Boden, and I'm very pleased overall. I purchased it in the teal and coral pattern. The fabric is absolutely lovely, with a much sturdier weight than I expected, a nicely nubby texture, and gorgeous colors that make outfit-planning fun! The pencil skirt silhouette makes it a classic for the office, but the colorful print gives me the option of dressing it up for more festive events. I've worn it to board meetings as well as a spring garden wedding - and received compliments at both.

        A word on sizing: consider sizing up from what Boden's size chart says. I hesitated a bit, but went with the 6R based on the size chart. For reference, I'm 5'6", 38-27-37. Depending on the brand, I'm typically around a 6 in bottoms, and Boden's size chart is consistent with that. The 6R fits, but it's definitely snug and sits higher on my waist than I normally prefer. I recently caught the metallic jacquard on clearance (another great fabric for a completely different look - and at a steal of a price!). When I did, I went with the 8R, which I think suits me much better, in terms of both comfort and appearance.

                      I just wore this to work today, but although I haven't worn it more than once, I can see that when comparing to my other garments, this is superior quality. It is classy and conservative and could be worn out at night. I could wear it for any occasion.
