Bistro Mini

Bistro Mini is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from loved it, different than in the pictures This skirt is lovely, but very different than what the picture seems to show and what the description says. It is a pleated skirt with a pleated chiffon overlay. The result is a flippy, fun twirly skirt that is young but not silly. I am 5'6" and normally a size 12- this skirt fit very true to size and hits a few inches above my knee. It is very flattering and comfortable. I can wear tights and wear it in the colder months but it's also great for the warner months sans layering. I am pleased with this purchase, but would have preferred better pictures on the website so that I could be sure of what I was getting! Got in on sale, it was a good purchase for the reduced price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my favorite skirt!!! I love this skirt. the quality of the material, length and fit are all spot on. My only complaint is I didn't buy another when they still had my size. I hope they reissue it in a few more colors. (pretty please MW?!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best neutral skirt loved this skirt. elegant but kind of sexy. fit is extremely flattering and looks tailored. great for accentuating a waist without playing up the hips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Mini Such a great skirt - really comfortable and flattering. It looks great with t-shirts for a casual lunch, or button downs tucked in for work with flats. I'm 5'6 130 pounds and usually wear a size 2 or 4. I got the 2 and it's perfect. MADEWELL- MAKE IT IN ANOTHER COLOR AND I WILL BUY IT. Really wish you had it in red, gray, or blue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from versatile skirt This skirt is a great staple for any closet. Work appropriate, but also cute to dress down or up. Appropriate length. I am 5'8 and often find skirts to be too short, but this hits perfectly just above the knee. A large/size 10 is what I usually wear and this runs true to size. The zipper on the side is good quality and works well, the pleats are flattering. Will definitely be getting my money's worth!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from elegant skirt it drapes well, nice quality, elegant line. No wrinkle, fits well. I'm 5'4, 109 lb, size 0 fits nicely. The elastic waist helps too. The wave of the material looks very nice. Very happy with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Great fabric, great fit, all-around wonderful piece to add to your wardrobe. I have found this skirt to be easily the most versatile in my closet. I purchased mine at the beginning of this season and worn it more times than I can count and it looks not even a bit worse for the wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this skirt! still glad I didn't pay full-price I love this skirt. It goes with everything and is super versatile. I read a bunch of reviews on it and after receiving it, I agree. It is a great skirt, but I am really glad I got it on sale. I am normally a size 4, but I bought a 2 as I do when I buy jcrew. I like the fabric, but there's no liner. Not a drawback for me, but it would feel like it was better quality if it had a liner. I do kind of wish it had pockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and can be casual or dressy It's more A-line than the picture makes it look, but as a petite person who often looks like a bell in skirts like this, I can say it doesn't have too much fabric. It's great for a small waist/wider hips body type. Other reviews said it runs small, but I got a 0 and it's not that tight in the waist. I usually wear a 25 in jeans.
