City Skirt

City Skirt is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Order one size up and you're golden. Unless you are looking for a *very* tight skirt, I suggest ordering one size up. I am 5'3", about 105 lbs with narrow hips; I ordered a size Small and am extremely happy with it. It is shapely and cute, but the extra size up means I can wear it just about anywhere: work, going out, etc., and feel very comfortable. The waist comes to about a medium height and the hem stops just above the knee. Also this skirt doesn't move around while you walk like a lot of pencil skirts do, getting bunched or twisting around. Perfect! If they made this in other colors or prints I would snap them up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Work Skirt This skirt is the perfect length for me. It's stretchy enough, but the length is conservative enough to work in. I'm 5"2, 120lbs, and bought a small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite skirt This skirt IS form fitting, but it moves really well and is very comfortable. It also hits me at a nice place on the knees (I'm 5'4''). It's great dressed up and dressed down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect skirt! This skirt is absolutely fantastic! It fits perfectly (I'm usually size 4-6 and got a medium - granted, I'm blessed in the backside), it's SO comfortable and the material is a great weight - making it very easy to dress it up or down. The material also lends itself to packing without wrinkling, which is a huge plus in my book. Highly recommend it :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it once I got the correct size The material is a nice, thick ponte that is very flattering and smoothing. I typically wear an XS and 25 or 26 jeans in Madewell (5'3", 120 lbs, narrow hipped). The XS in this skirt was very tight and looked much shorter than on the model (and things NEVER are too short on me). It was too tight to tuck anything in because tucking created visible bunching. I sized up to small and love it, added a little length and it didn't look painted on, just nicely fitted and comfy. Definitely recommend buying a size above your normal size!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Everyday Skirt Really good quality skirt. I usually go with a small but with it being more form fitting I went with a medium. Glad I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorite I love everything about this skirt. It is very comfortable, the fabric is a good weight, and the style is classic. I'm 5'4" and 125 lbs. I usually wear a 0 or 2. The Small fits me well and hits just above my knees. I've worn this with a blouse for work, or with a tshirt on weekends. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why would you NOT get this skirt? Simple, goes with everything, looks fantastic. I wear an xs/0 and got an xs and am happy. Yes it is tight, that is the style of it. If I'd gotten the larger size it would have been too loose in the waist, it is meant to be high waisted- which also makes it cool for going with a crop top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great staple! I was debating whether or not to buy this skirt, but I'm so happy I did. Well worth it! It's long enough to be professional for work and I can easily transition it to the night. The ponte fabric is super flattering and has a nice stretch to it. If you're on the fence, don't be, take the plunge!
