Metropolis Snap Jean Skirt

Metropolis Snap Jean Skirt is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect denim skirt I've had my eye on this skirt for quite a while, but didn't want to pay full price, so waited for a sale. The skirt is super flattering and hugs at the perfect place on my waist. It is a little shorter than I expected, but tasteful. I'm 5'5" and 127 lbs, so was in between the size 2 and 4. I went with the size 4 although the size 2 fit, it was just a little too tight and a little too short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from in love I waited a while to jump onto the button down denim skirt trend because I wanted to find the most classic version possible, and this is it. My waist/hip measurements are 28"/37" and I am typically a size 27 in jeans. After reading the mixed sizing reviews, I got the skirt measurements by chatting with an assistant online--28"/38" in a 2 and 29"/39" in the 4. I wanted it to fit like a glove so I went with the 2 and I'm glad I did, it looks very polished and skims the figure just right. My recommendation would be to go with your normal size if you want a bit more modest and mature look, but if you're going for a fitted flirty style you can probably size down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Size up if layering Love that 70's retro vibe. I found that this skirt ran a little small though. That said, I'm planning to wear it in the spring layered with thin turtlenecks and early summer with t-shirts. If you want to layer, I would suggest sizing up. I'm typically a 24/25 in madewell denim (5'5'' 115lbs) and I went from my normal 0 to a 2 so it would be comfortable. The 0 was very fitted and showed some bumps and was a little unflattering if I tried to layer a turtleneck underneath. Excited to wear this SS'17 season!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I bought this in store today. Its super cute, and just trendy enough. I'm usually a 27 or size 4 but the size 2 fit better in this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New favorite spring piece! I bought this on Friday afternoon and have already worn it 5 times (it's Tuesday). The fit is a dream for small waist larger bottom types. It is a true A-line, not straight fit like some Madewell skirts that say they are A-line but actually more straight. The snaps are very sturdy - no need to worry about them coming unsnapped. I will say that it's mid-thing range so not appropriate for work. But, a great piece that goes with everything and I will enjoy wearing for years to come! 10/10 recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect jean skirt This skirt is so cute with just enough 70's vibes. its very soft, and I look forward to wearing it all summer. Not too short, perfect length.. I usually wear a 25/26 in madewell jeans and the 2 fit great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just about the perfect denim skirt This just arrived, and while my region of the country won't have weather that allows me to wear it without tights for a few months, I can tell it's going to be a wardrobe MVP. Looks cute with booties, sneakers, sandals. Tried it with some of my button-downs and chunkier knit sweaters. Adorable with a flattering A-line and just the rjight length - on me, mid-thigh, which feels age-appropriate. I'm 5'1", 97 lbs and the 0 is perfect, with a little give. (After two babies, I'm a touch wider in the hips now, so bear that in mind when selecting your size!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The piece I was missing I just love this skirt. It has a great A line which compliments my body. The buttons just make it so easy to put on and off, it's become my go-to piece now that the weather is getting hotter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, cute, and comfy The fabric is nice and thick with a springy, resilient stretch. I balked at paying full price but the quality is very good and the snap buttons are easy to do/undo but feel very secure. The skirt is super cute with somewhat dressy tops, like a crisp collared shirt or feminine blouse. The denim can look a bit too 90s-elementary-school-kid with more casual tees and tanks but has an effortless preppy vibe with a nice button-up. The skirt is great with laceup sandals, flats, and summery heels. I ordered this in a 2 and 4, and the 2 looked a bit more tailored and neat. I'm 5'6, 145lbs with an average/somewhat muscular build, small waist, and some padding on the hips and thighs. When I pull the waistband up to my trust waist, the hem is right in the middle of the length of my thighs.
