Reviewed by SJS from NYC on Wednesday, December 28, 2016Size down—this skirt runs big. I am 5'7" and 125 pounds, typically a size 2 (or a size 25 or 26 in jeans), and the small in this skirt was too big all over—not only in the waist, but also across the hips. It was also frumpily long—longer than it appears on the model. (That may be in part because it was sitting low on my waist due to how loose it was.) If it weren't sweater material I could have taken it in, but that wasn't really an option given the knit.
Also, be warned that the colors appear more muted in person than they do online; the pattern is not very discernible, and the purple along the hem doesn't really pop.
All of that, taken together, gave the skirt a sort of dowdy quality. I'm in my early 30s and was looking for a cute, warm, flattering, easy-to-clean skirt I could throw on with a black sweater and flats to wear to work, but this one just isn't fun enough.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by City hiker from Vallejo, CA on Monday, October 24, 2016Fit ok in hips but waistband too large for me but would fit someone less pear-shaped than me. My other Smartwool skirt has a more tapered, A-line fit with a yoke waist and it fits me perfectly in XS. I got this one in S and hips OK but waist too large. For reference I am 112lbs, 5'3; waist 26" hips 37". It's great Smartwool quality so it still gets 5 stars.
