Rated 5 out of 5 by RatingJCrew Fantastic pencil skirt!
This skirt is fun and stylish. I bought gray and houndstooth. I wanted to like the ivory one but sadly it shows any lumps or bumps you might have – not flattering. The fabric is very thick and could be a little itchy.
The skirt runs a little large . I am solid size 6 in JC pencil skirts but got this one in size 4. When you zip the skirt, the thick fabric literally wraps you and sucks you in – super flattering. So try it in your smaller size first.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jessica Not for curvy gals.
If you are a curvy gal, you probably know that the fit-model for J Crew has a remarkably un-curvy waist-to-hip ratio in some products, particularly pants. Luckily, for skirts and dresses, the fit is usually fine. Not so much on this one. I'm a size 12 and I ordered this and the classic pencil skirt at the same time. This skirt simply didn't have the curve - a bit tight in the hip, a bit loose at the waist. The other skirt fit fine. The material was, as always, high quality - although I wish the zipper was maybe a bit more asymmetric (again, that may be a curves thing) - and the styling was fine. But the fit wasn't right so back it goes.

This skirt has great style, just wish it was slightly less boxy and fabric is a little heavy.....good for a cold winter with boots......

Rated 4 out of 5 by lawyergirl Great Professional Skirt with Style
Great and classic for the office. The wool is a thicker fall/winter weight. I have it in all 3 colors. Goes with anything: a simple blouse or sweater or more sophisticated looks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tawalla Great update to a classic!
I own probably a dozen JCrew pencil skirts. For me, this was a must have. The zippers add a little edge to a classic style. I purchased the garnet red and ivory and both are absolutely beautiful. As always, true to size and very comfortable. Ladies it's defintely a "must have!"
