Love this skirt! Wear it multiple times a week at work. It's super comfortable but professional. I really hope that encircle keeps making them! Just a few notes on how to make it work:
(1) Size up. I'm between a medium and large (usually medium for encircled clothes). Glad I went with a large. I'm sure a medium would have *fit*, but it would be VERY clingy like other reviews noted.
(2) The fabric is very different from other encircle clothes. I really like it -- it repels pet fur, doesn't wrinkle, and always looks polished. It's also stretchy and forgiving. But it's not as soft and breathable as the fabric used in other pieces. I've worn it all summer, though, with no problems.
(3) If you like to tuck (which I do!), you can't pair it with a bulky shirt (e.g., evolve top). It's great with the un bodysuit. It pairs great with a blazer too!
(4) The slit works for me. I was worried it would make it less office-friendly, but it stays in place at the side of your leg, even when sitting.
The title says it all, like all pencil skirts this is a sexy skirt. I’m somewhere between a medium and a large and I’m so glad I bought a large. For me as I’m a bit more on the curvey side this skirt demands some really good under garments. To be honest though I’m not too sure what I think about the fabric. The pros are: it gives the skirt a lot of stretch which is rare to find in à pencil skirt-you can easily get in/out of cars, up/down off buses/stairs without worry. It also does not wrinkle or roll up. So it does keep its shape. The pictures truly illustrate how you can move in this skirt. As for the cons, I’m not sure if I like are the feel of the fabric, it’s heavy and doesn’t feel very breathable. It also in certain lights has a funny shine to it. I gave it five stars as it delivers what it advertised a flexible pencil skirt that doesn’t wrinkle but might hesitate buying this fabric again. Before writing this review I have worn this skirt a few times but as the warmer weather approaches, I will be putting it away until the fall.
Super comfy. A go to when I'm in a rush.
This is a great skirt! Professional (but a little sexy since it is a pencil skirt) and comfortable. The fabric is wonderful. A little structured but with stretch. It looks fab with the black mock neck sweater. It comes to the top of my knees for me -- I'm 5'6". I had to size down from the measurements (my measurements suggest I'm a large but medium fits me better without any gaping at the back of the waist). Will go nicely from work to a dinner out.
Pencil skirts have always been a challenge for me. I have a small waist and curvier hips/thicker thighs and don't feel the fit is very good with this one either. If you try to tuck in a shirt the lumps/fabric of the shirt shows through the skirt. I think it will only work with bodysuits if you want a tucked in look. For me the whole point of a pencil skirt, is to tuck in a blouse so it was disappointing to discover this was not an option.
