Ribbed Pencil Skirt

Ribbed Pencil Skirt is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So versatile! I didn't know really what to expect with this skirt. Would it be too clingy? Too casual? Too tight? Too long? I'm 5'7" 120 lb and normally wear a S or 26/27. I got a M in this skirt since I'm a bit bigger in the hips. It fits perfectly! It skims the hips to just past the knees and enlongates your silhouette. It goes with just about everything. It looks great with a drapey courier shirt, a tie front shirt, tshirt, sweater... it's causal and cool, and polished at the same time. Will take me through the summer and into boots and tights season :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a stretchy pencil skirt that is not trashy The length of the skirt and the material turns this skirt into something special. It hits me just at the middle of my knee at high waist and just below for a lower waist fit. The ribbing covers any smoothness challenges. I believe this will not bag out because it is a little thicker. I am a size 2 / 26 and the small fit great. Walking in a pencil skirt made easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for church and everyday I’m a bit curvy and this fit me soooo well. I was unsure because of the ribbing but the fabric is amaizig and the shape held :) I love it and thanks for a great item

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so so so good This skirt will be on repeat for me from now until I wear it out (please let that never happen). Fabric is thin but substantial enough not to be see through. Fit is normal in my opinion. I usually wear xs/small/26 and with the reviews saying it ran small I ordered small and medium. The medium was huge on me. The small is probably how it's supposed to fit but I could have gone to XS if i wanted a tighter fit. Even though it's hard to tell from height/weight, for what it's worth I'm 5'4" 117ish. I'm loving this. You can wear it high waisted or lower depending on the look you want. It's so easy to throw this on for work and dress it up for day and then toss on a tshirt and sneakers to be casual after hours. Madewell, please make this skirt every year!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy skirt Really comfortable and flattering skirt. I was expecting it to be a thicker material, but it's really soft and cozy and I'll get a lot of wear out of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow- this skirt is GREAT! Normally I am a 4 in jeans but the medium fit well (form fitting but not slinky tight). The material is the star- it's as thin as a ribbed tee but substantial enough to hang well and not bunch up. Since it's a thinner material it will be cool even in the summer. Love the elastic waistband - not too wide. I'm 5'6" and it hits below the knee which makes it look sleek. Can dress down or up but will probably wear it mostly with tees and a jean jacket, sandals, flip flops or sneaks. Or a big oxford shirt tied at the waist. So glad I got it before it sells out....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adore this staple skirt so much I am ordering a 2nd here's why.... I found this skirt to be a perfect and I mean perfect staple piece that I can just grab and go when life and time are pressing. I can dress this piece up or wear as shown on the model. The length is perfect for me at 5'8" - 110 pounds in a size Small. It falls just above my knee. The model must be a shorter height than I. My measurements are 24 waist, 34 hip. I tried the medium just to see very large on me. The ribbing is so slendering too because it is a body con type skirt. No need for a back vent this skirt has stretch and ease, it just moves with you. Super for traveling too or after the gym with a crop top. Give it a chance sometimes "simple" is just beautiful.
