The stripes on this skirt required two different weaving styles (the work of an innovative artisanal Italian laboratory that specializes in technically-forward and highly refined quality fabrics). The result? A brilliant rattan-like weave and an extra-fine woven stripe. Italian linen/poly with horizontal stripes. Classic pencil-skirt shape. Sits at waist. Back zip. Back vent. Fully lined. 22 1/2" long. Part of the J.Crew Collection. Import. Dry clean. Available in select stores.
Well, boy do I feel special! This skirt is only available in "select stores", and I happened to go to one that had it! I tried this on in a size 4. The most important thing about this skirt is that the stripes on the skirt are much more of a dark neon orange - reminiscent of the printed zebra tee from earlier this spring. I think it fits pretty true-to-size, but I think there is some room to size down if you are on the smaller end of your size, and depending on how fitted you want the skirt to be.
This is a linen skirt, but the weaving of the fabric should help to hide some of those pesky wrinkles that come with linen bottoms. The length of the skirt is all right - a hair too long, but you could always size down and pull it up a bit to get some inches back. I definitely think this skirt will work best with neutral colors, either light or dark.
I thought this skirt was okay. It fit pretty well, and was an interesting pattern, but was too bright for me. I know that I wouldn't really wear it that much, and it is a little on the pricey side.
What do you think? Do you like this skirt? Could you rock neon orange stripes?
