A sweet confection in cotton sateen. This feminine skirt features pleated tiers and inverted pleats around the waist, creating a flirty bell shape. Sits at waist. Side zip. 20" long. Import. Dry clean.It comes in four colors online: light chartreuse, champagne, light pewter, and fresh orange.
When I tried this skirt on in-store, it was also available in a coral-y read color, which seemed to be a match to the cerise color that some items were available in this season.
I really love this skirt. I think that the inverted pleats and the tiers create a really nice, feminine shape. The fabric is very smooth, but I don't think it's as shiny as some of the J.Crew pictures make it seem. I found that it fits true to size, although I think there was definitely room to size down, especially if you want it to be a little shorter.
Even though the skirt is a little voluminous and is an A-line shape, I don't really think it creates extra volume in the bottom, and especially not in the back, which is nice. I think it creates a pretty, bell shape, just like the description says.
I also like the length of the skirt. It comes just to or below my knees (can't remember exactly), so it's long enough without being too long. Because the fabric is nice and light, you don't have to worry about the skirt weighing you down either.
I think this skirt would be easy to dress up or down, and could go with a lot of different tops. I picked this skirt up in light pewter, champagne, and this coral-y red color, and I love all of them!
What do you think? Do you own this skirt? What do you think of the pleats with the tiers?
