Rated 3 out of 5Â by ChristinaPS Very Pleated Skirt
I like the idea and look of this piece, and I am always a sucker for pleats! However, the elastic waistband and the length make this piece a little tricky in the figure flattering department. To help ensure a more figure friendly look I recommend pairing with a belt â€“ this will smooth out the waistline and highlight your curves â€“ and potentially heels to elongate the leg and balance out length.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by VelvetGirl great travel skirt too!
I just returned from a trip to Paris, where I wore this skirt everywhere. It made me look stylish, was long enough to feel comfortable sitting in the Metro or to a concert, light enough to weather the heat. I did not have to wear a slip because it is not sheer, so that was another bonus!
I paired it mainly with black or white tops; patterns were more of a challenge, but it depends on what you have in your closet. I am tall, so the length fell just below my knees.
I could hand wash it, wring it out, roll it in a towel and hang it from it's little inside loops, and it dried in a jiffy with nary a wrinkle, looking just as fresh as if it came from the cleaner's. I don't usually like polyester, but the fabric is a high quality polyester, and this skirt really illustrates the plus sides of synthetics! I machine washed it on gentle before my trip, and hung to dry, and that worked great as well.
I went with my usual 12. Due to the elastic waist I wondered if the 10 would fit smoother in that area, but it was too small. So I would say it runs true to size. The waist actually did not look bunchy under thin t-shirts, so it turned into a non-issue.
All in all, I can't recommend this skirt too highly!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mainegirly great summer work skirt
i love this. i find it wearable and very flattering. i love it when anthro has a skirt that i can actually wear to work and have that great stylish feeling. this one is great for that. i did not find it to be long. i'm 5'10 and I got an eight. it hits right at my knee. the waistband is flat on me. no puffing. while pleating seems a little oldfashioned, the skirt is light and swingy. great colors.
