The perfect skirt for sunny stroll in a comfy cotton/Modal® rayon/spandex blend. We love it just as much with strappy sandals as we do with sneakers. Swing skirt. Elastic at waist. Welt pockets. Hits above knee. Import. Machine wash. Catalog/jcrew.com only.First off, I don't understand why things are labeled as "Catalog/jcrew.com only" when they are available in-store. I tried this skirt on about 2 weeks ago, and there were plenty of them available in-store. Anyway, I tried this skirt on in a size small, in the navy color. I think the skirt fits fairly true to size, although I remember thinking it could have a been a little bit smaller, but I didn't try on an extra small, so I am unable to give you any comparison. I would say overall it leans towards running a bit large, but I also think this might be because it is meant to be worn lower on the waist/hips.
The fabric is super soft and cool (not surprising, I guess, given the blend), and the skirt moves, flows, and drapes very nicely. The skirt is a fairly straight silhouette, with a little bit of shirring in between the pockets. I would have liked this skirt a tiny bit more flowy (and less straight up-and-down), and a smidge shorter.
I think the pockets are nice on this skirt - they are off-seam, and because the skirt hangs a little lower on the body, then they can be at an awkward angle, depending on your height/shape. However, because they are vertical welt pockets, they sort of blend in with the front shirring, and I think they work well with the overall look of the skirt.
Overall, I think this is a really nice, casual spring/summer skirt. I think you could style it to be ultra casual, and maybe a little more dressy (although I think the latter might take some more work). I initially passed on this one because I already had a casual jersey skirt from Old Navy at home. However, when I was cleaning out my closet and trying on old clothes, I discovered it was both too big and too short, so I ended up getting this skirt, but in black, not navy.
What do you think? Do you like this skirt? Have you seen it or tried it on in person? Are there any other jersey skirts out there that you love?
