Column Side-Slit Skirt

Column Side-Slit Skirt is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering fabric; great fit! This skirt is super flattering. I am petite (5'2") and didn't find it to be too long whatsoever. The slits in the side are very cute and make it a little more comfortable,, and the rise is great. I was happy to find that it does not call undue attention to my bubble-butt. Certain pencil skirts can make it seem too prominent and hence look inappropriate for work or the like, but this skirt doesn't do that. I think it would flatter those with less of a rear as well. All-around wardrobe staple. I got it on a sale but would purchase at full price. Will work in winter and summer! Can't ask for more! Very pleased!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this skirt! This skirt is everything I hoped it would be. It fits perfectly - I'm a size 4 and got a Small - and it looks just like it does on the model. It's extremely versatile and can be dressed up or down. I've worn it with a chambray button-up, and plan on pairing it with a tshirt and denim jacket, sweaters, blouses... It's just a great basic for your closet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for riding my bike. Very comfortable and easy to wear. Needed a skirt but I also ride my bike everywear works for both.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Chill pencil skirt That's the best way to describe it...this is a pencil skirt that I would still wear on weekends. The fabric is substantial, unfortunately when you tuck a shirt into it it gets a bit bulgy unless the shirt is very thin. Much better with a t-shirt than a button up. I am a size 6 (28 in Madewell jeans) and I went with a medium, which fits well around the waist. I would size up to see if that helps conceal the tucking problems, but then I think the waist would be too big. The length is good- I'm 5'11" and it hits just above my knee, so I imagine this is below the knee on others. I was a bit worried about the side slits but they don't come up too high, and they add some interest to the skirt. They also make the skirt more walkable than a normal pencil skirt. As others have mentioned, because of the material the slits flare out a little bit, and don't lay as flat as pictured. I don't think it's that noticeable, though. I'll be keeping this and wearing it in my casual office!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful but gets dirty *very* quickly I love the way this skirt looks on me but after wearing it for half a day I could tell this is the kind of fabric that attracts dust, hair and dirt, and shows it. Not a terrible thing if you're willing to wash it after each use, however, not the greatest thing for a garment either. I would definitely recommend it for its style, but I probably wouldn't recommend it to someone with pets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Funky Skirt Although the fit is a bit small - I sized up to XL (5"10, 160 lbs), this skirt is very stylish. The side slits are not too revealing - they just add a uniqueness to the skirt. Length is perfect for taller women! Lots of compliments!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not fit true to photos The skirt weirdly flares at the bottom maybe due to the stretchy fabric, I'm not sure. Not happy with it :(

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh - does nothing to flatter Maybe it's just me, but this was a strike-out. Really tight in the hip area and then tapered down to the knees. I'm knock-kneed and this just highlighted that . . . looked sort of matronly. I'm usually an extra small in clothes and the small was uncomfortable. Technically it fit, but it was tight and weird.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lots of potential, fit was not as shown in photo When I saw this skirt online it looked like the perfect, versatile pencil skirt for fall. Unfortunately, when I tried this on at home the skirt had a very dramatic outward flare at each side slit, instead of the straight minimal cut as shown in the photo. I ordered my true size in Madewell (size small), and the fit around the waist was just fine. I have a lean athletic build with a little booty, so the curve at my hips accentuated the flare at the knees. This skirt might work better for ladies with very narrow hips? I'm so bummed this didn't work out; the ponte was a quality material - substantial and comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute, runs a lil big. Good quality! Thick material, quality. Good for a work wardrobe. I ordered the speckled version first and loved that so much I got this one. For reference: I am 5'6 and 130 lbs and got a small because I saw the other reviews about it running large and it fits perfectly. The side slits go up a bit more than it appears in the pictures on the website, but not enough that I feel uncomfortable or that it's too revealing.
