    I own two of Boden's pencil skirts and was thrilled to see this one in this lovely summer fabric. However, when I tried it on, I found it creased unattractively along one of the stripes around my hips. I then tried on my other two skirts to compare them, and found that they do not crease over my hips. Perhaps this one does because the fabric is lighter than my others, or perhaps the stripes accentuated the crease. In any case, I sadly decided to return it.

    This is such a beautifully made and well designed skirt. Love the colors, but they are tough to match with tops I have. The easiest color to match is yellow - the one color I would never wear with my complexion. But I like the skirt and don't intend to give up!!!

        This is a Boden classic!! A must have piece for summer. The material is awesome and the colors are pure fun. As always, Boden made this skirt paying great attention to detail. It is versatile enough to wear from desk to dinner with different tops and accessories.I bought the striped/multicolored one and can't wait to wear it with different tops! Don't miss out on this one!!!
