      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.

                      Cut of this skirt is boxy and ill fitting. The waist and hips felt to have too much fabric. But cut tight at the knees.

                      The fabric was more metallic than expected, probably not something I would wear to work, more of a church or night out look.
