Silk Island Skirt

Silk Island Skirt is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Smart I tried this skirt on because I needed a black skirt for work. I'm so happy I did!! I always find pencil skirts to be awkward so this was a great alternative. I bought the XS and am usually a 2-4 in skirts and pants. It's really versatile and super flattering. Such a good buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Skirt I bought this in green on sale and loved it so I bought the black too. I got them both on sale with an additional % off so they were a good deal being silk. I think it gives the look of Lucy Liu on Elementary which I love. It can be dressed up in winter or worn with a tee and sandals for summer. Can't wait to wear both of mine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect This skirt is a fabulous new go-to item in my closet. It goes with practically every top. Pair it with a tee and flat sandals for super casual. Pair it with a blouse and block heels for work or a night out. I'm not usually one to get super super fancy, but I would imagine you can do that with this skirt as well. It's black, versatile, and slimming - just simple. I would say it runs TTS but ever so slightly large. It is waist fitting with an elastic band in the back, so if you're concerned about it being too small, that will offer a little more room. If you're teeny waisted, you could probably get away with sizing down. It's on sale. Just get it! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for any type of body Ok, this skirt is so wonderful. I have never in my life written a review, but it felt necessary for how this skirt made me look and feel. The length is absolutely perfect, it fell right above my knees. The waist is the perfect amount of elastic. But the best part, oh the most wonderful part, is the pleats!!! They fall perfectly, so if you have wider hips, thighs, or a lil belly (who doesn't after winter?!) there is absolutely no sign of anything - you look smooth and it balances out wider shoulders perfectly. Truly the picture of the model is what the skirt looks like on me, and I do not have a body like that model. For reference, I have wide hips and wear a size 10 in most bottoms. The large is perfect. You can dress this skirt up or down, and I cant wait to wear from work straight out to a bar. It's the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The anything skirt Love love love this. Initially saw the black one in store and it is one of the VERY few skirts that have been flattering on me! Length is conservative but the curved hemline looks great from a profile view. I happily paid full price for the black one but nabbed the green on sale! Very happy with these and will get a TON of wear out of them. Highly recommend. For reference I am 5"6', straight figure from waist down (I appreciate that this seemed to float around the waist in a halo-manor, which helps me a lot considering I dont have wide hips or full figure!). Balances a broad upper frame nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great alternative to the pencil skirt for work! This skirt is long enough to wear to work without tights. It is flowy and comfortable without looking too sloppy. Great with button-down shirts, sweaters, tees, ANYTHINGYou can dress it up or down. I bought it in black and since it is still on sale i'm going back for the green :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful, breezy, and flawless i had positive expectations and they were met and exceeded. this is beautiful, graceful, delicate, effortless, and classy. fit and comfort are both five stars, and if it looks good on me i'd recommend it to probably just about any shape. i can tell it's going to become a staple in my closet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Skirt I ordered the extra small because they were out of my normal size small (5'7, 130lbs). I thought for sure it would be too small since my hips were on the larger side but it ended up fitting well. The material is nice enough to be dressed up with a silk top and heels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Closet staple! I tried it on in stores and was in looove. The slightly cinched shape and rounded hems are flattering and more interesting than my usual drape-y skirt, and it looks great with any sleeveless tee on top. Not sure how to style it for fall yet but I want to try.
