Step-Hem Jean Skirt in Washed Black

Step-Hem Jean Skirt in Washed Black is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and great fit! Great fit and so cute. Most comfortable denim skirt I’ve ever worn. It’s also just long enough so I don’t have to be worried when I sit down or lean over. Probably better for long legs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Madewell does it again! I am obsessed with this skirt!! The step hem makes this skirt so stylish, the fabric is a bit stretchy which is nice when you are wearing a form fitting skirt. Love the material, color, style. Would recommended to anyone who loves Madewell jeans like me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering and versitile I have disproportionately small hips so sometimes straight cut skirts can make me look like an upside down triangle but this one is super flattering from all angles and extremely comfortable. I did go down to the smaller of my two Madewell denim sizes as the reviews suggested and it was perfect - I would size down unless you want to wear it low-waisted. Unlike another reviewer, I love the step hem. It looks fine and makes me less worried about flashing the world when sitting, kneeling, wrangling kids, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love ❤️ I got a size smaller than I usually do, 27, normally a 28, 5'10" 145, and they were tight but in a good way to wear with looser tops and it stretched to perfection after a wear or so. Can stop thinking of new outfit ideas for it too! Dressy and casual!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from get it love it so far but it did stretch out so I would recommend sizing down one side

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to bottom First, I said this fits "slightly small" only because I have no waist and this is high waisted. I've never been able to wear anything high waisted so I finally went up in size and this fits perfect! The stretch in the fabric makes this ideal for all body types. I have to tell myself to put this skirt back because I try to wear it everyday. I've been wearing this in +100 degree weather with tanks and see it going all the way through winter (in Austin).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit. I love this skirt the fit is perfect. I do not like the step hem, even hem all round would make this skirt timeless.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Skirt Love this skirt - great for summer and can see myself wearing it into fall. The pockets really do slim down the stomach. One issue is it runs large. I normally wear a 26 but should have sized down to a 25 as it stretches quite a bit after wear...I may end up buying the smaller size as well.
