Rated 5 out of 5 by Editor The opposite of man-repellant
My husband had an instant, visceral reaction when I walked out of the fitting room in this skirt. He said he loved this more than all my other skirts put together, and that's a large number, people. I tried both the white and navy, and while I liked the drama of the white, DH voted for navy. They're lined, for anyone worried about see-through. Alas, unlike the matching shorts, there are no pockets.
The elastic waistband is wide, at least 3 inches, and on the plus side, it can act as a little tummy control. However, I'd be worried that it could prove irritating on the hotter, sweatier days of summer.
I'm 5'4", 130lbs. In skirts, I hover between a 4-6, but I like to go looser in summer. I tried both a S and a M, and the S fit and had less fabric, so it lay a little closer to my body. It was also shorter. My husband preferred the M on me -- he liked the fullness and the length better. I also felt like I had more room to pull the waistband up or down in the M, to manage the length.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kaihoku Great summer skirt
I have this skirt in both colors, it is a fun casual skirt. I wear them with t-shirts and flat sandals around town and always get compliments. The skirt is not form-fitting but it's still quite cute. The embroidery is well done.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TallTiff Cute, but just a smidge off for me, darn it!
This is a lovely skirt, so lovely that I ordered it in the white and the navy. At 5' 11" tall, I probably should have known better, but I ordered it thinking it might be long enough, if I could wear it low enough on my hips. It didn't turn out to be a good solution, so (very grumpily) I am sending both back. When I pulled it down lower on my hips, the volume of the skirt ended up making me look a little too wide. Wish it came in a tall! Oh, but if it helps, my husband and I both liked the navy best.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nana Cute skirt for everyday use!
Bought this skirt in navy because it looked so cute online! Was very pleased when it arrived because it looked exactly like the picture. I am very petite and liked the fact that it is quite short but not too short that it looks ridiculous on this 66 year old J. Crew shopper! Wore it for several hours and it was very comfortable and never wrinkled at all. Very pleased with this purchase!!
