Side-Button Skirt

Side-Button Skirt is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite skirt I got this late in the summer (August) but was able to wear it into fall. It's just a beautiful, cheery, fun skirt to pair with a tank or a tee and some espadrilles and go. It's cool, soft and comfortable while also being a little flirty. I don't know why some people are saying that there is too much me, it's just right. I am 5'10" and usually take a 2 or a 4. Although the 2 fit, I wanted it to be a little looser so I got the 4. No regrets except that now I can't wear it again until next summer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for year round. I love the color, length and feel of this skirt. I have worn it with a tee shirt and plan to top it with a sweater this fall. My favorite feature, the buttons up both sides. I have received so many compliments every time I wear it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything and more This skirt has become one of my staple pieces. It literally goes with everything. It's a bit much what i would usually spend on a skirt but I have absolutely no regrets. I love the color, texture, and features. There's extra lining inside so your colorful panties don't show. Oh madewell, you know me too well. TLDR; love it, buy it, own it now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very cute skirt I love the buttons down both sides and the color. The skirt fits true to size and hits me at mid calf (I'm 5'4") There is a double layer of material from the waistband to about mid thigh under the front of the skirt which means you don't need a slip to keep the skirt from being see-through. The material is a nice soft cotton which will definitely wrinkle, but its comfortable and cute and I'm very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes. Beautiful color and perfect length. I found it to be true to size, made up of a very soft, swingy cotton. Lined only partially but I can see where if it was fully lined, it might be too bulky and less flowy. The buttons on each side, aside from the amazing color, is what sets the skirt apart. As a bonus, they make it super easy to get in and out of, as well. Hope Madewell continues to incorporate these type of staple pieces more regularly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my new favorite skirt This is the perfect summer dress. The color is amazing....very pretty/bright yellow. The buttons on the sides, make the skirt very unique. Must have for spring and summer. Looks really cute with a blue and white stripped blouse or chambray blouse.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute but small This is a lovely skirt, but it runs pretty small. I'm a pretty true size 6/8 in Madewell, so I ordered an 8. If it wasn't final sale, I would probably exchange for a 10. I like the style and color so much, but I have to wear it pretty high on my waist.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fine. I have a 31" inseam and it hit my calf about where it does on the model. My waist is 27.5 inches. Sizes 2 and 4 were the same length. Both fit but the 4 drapes better. Cons - Added a little bulk to hips - nothing crazy. I think it is an optical effect of the buttons' rather than the skirt's construction. - Only partially lined. Pros - color - nice breezy but weighty (if that makes sense) fabric - neatly sewn seams

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cut a little small if you are built athletically This has a very defined waist. I should probably have sized up, but I think it's just my body type. If you are rectangular like me, or apple shaped, this one might be one to size up on or skip.
