      I have been looking for a navy skirt for a few months now and this is the best I've seen. I loved the feel of the fabric and the shape. However I ordered a "L" for long and I'm 5'7" it hit me about 4 inches below the knee, which isn't flattering on me. I'm going to exchange it for the "R" and I think it will be right at the knee.

      I love the fabric, color and length of this skirt, but the fit is slightly off. My usual size (4) was perfect in the waist, but slightly snugger than I'd like in the thigh/bum area, but the next size up was far too loose all around and I didn't want to have to get it tailored. I am keeping the 4 anyway because it's a lovely skirt and I am ever hopeful -- if I could just lose a few pounds I think it will look fantastic.

        I love the orange color. When I cut the thread that keeps the back vent closed the stitching keeping the hem unraveled. After one wear the skirt got wrinkled. I think I will keep the skirt anyway - I love the color too much.

        This is a really nice quality classic pencil -- and in the long its a great length for us tall ladies. Very flattering. Nice wool fabric, and the seam down the front gives it a flattering line. It goes with everything and I've worn it constantly since I got it. Great with boots.

          Overall, this skirt is well made and fits perfectly. Word of advice though.....If you are in between sizes order the next size down. I have recently lost weight and went from a size 14 to a 12. I thought the 12 was going to be too tight and would have to wait a little while before I could wear it. The waist line was a tad bit too big, but it fit very well throughout the hip.....Clingy, just the way a pencil skirt should compliment a woman with curves. I liked this skirt so much, I ordered it in all 3 colors.

          Careful of the geo pattern!

            I got the navy and pearl geo pattern. I love the style and fit but the pattern wasn't aligned properly on the front and side seams. It looked great out of the box but once I put it on, it was obvious the pattern was mismatched and made the skirt look cheap.
            Boo!

                  This skirt has a great style, love the orange color. Unfortunately, the material is very thin and the skirt is not lined. Back it goes.

                      I think this skirt will be great for work paired with blouses and jackets, but I found it to be oddly large through the waist and and hips as well as too long to be flattering. I have consistently worn a Boden 6L for years, but I'm sending it back to try for a 4R...

                            This was a lot bolder in color than I visualized. I will exchange it for another color.

                                I ordered the Navy Geo print version of this skirt in size 8. I loved the design, and it fit well (similar to the Notre Dame skirt from fall). I am curvy, so finding a skirt that fits in the waist and the hips is always a challenge for me. The only reason I did not give it five stars is because the fabric was a bit thinner than I was expecting, and I am worried about how well it will hold up.
