So edgy and mod and flattering!

One of my favorite pieces ever. This skirt is so flattering. There is NO give in the waist, but the tie can tighten a little bit. I would size up if you don't want to risk not fitting it and are between sizes. I am 5'5" and the skirt didn't fit for me like it did the model. It went down almost to my ankles. This was not midi on me. But because of the cut, this skirt is beautiful on so many different heights and shapes. This A line cut is so flattering for al different body types. I will wear this skirt many times.

A little loose is better than a little tight.

I was overly optimistic when I chose the 10. I can fit in it, but the belt lies funny when it's working too hard.

My favorite skirt

This skirt is very flattering and makes it easy to incorporate my basic pieces in with a skirt that was a little funky and cool. Very comfortable. I got lots of compliments.

Love this skirt

It feels just a little bit punk with the thick grommet belt but in a good way! Construction of this skirt was unlike anything I've seen before. Waist/hip were super flattering and kept my waist looking narrow even though the skirt is voluminous.

Favorite RTR Item to Date!

I have considered buying this skirt I love it so much. It fits like a glove. Please note it has no stretch, so if you are unsure, size up! I feel like it's got goth 90's vibes yet it's so classy and structured. Because it is black, it goes with anything. It is cut really high waisted, so I liked pairing it with shorter sweaters and also a Samantha Sipos jacket from RTR. The skirt also was longer on me than on the model, but I didn't mind. I love the way the fabric flows when you walk. Also, the material is very thick, and I felt warm with leggings on cold winter days. I will probably rent this one again. It's a great piece!

Loved

Loved the uneven hem, the belt, the length - very flattering and versatile. Wore to work with conservative blouse and on date with a casual t. Both were great looks.

Super flattering!

This skirt was so much more flattering than I expected. It camouflaged my tummy and the length was great on my 5'3" frame. I wore it with heeled boots and a turtleneck and will definitely be renting again.

Thick material , interesting, punk

I agree with the other reviews- this is a unique skirt with a cool alternative design. The material is quite thick and stiff. Which makes it's A line shape very clear- it doesn't drape much.

Cute but a different color

I adore this skirt. I wore it to work, it's the perfect mix of edgy and professional. The only thing is I thought it I was black but it ended up being like a navy color. Pockets are great.

Looked Great In Photos But Not For Me...

Loved the idea of this skirt, but once it was on, it felt too complicated - with the slits, et cetera. Also once I cinched the belt, there was nowhere to tuck or hide the excess belt/fabric...

The style is amazing and made my waist look really tiny!

It's a little long for anyone who has short legs like myself.

Sloppy sloppy sloppy.

Could barely figure out how to put this skirt on. Length is too much - I'm 5'9" and this was nearly ankle length on me. Too long to be midi and too short to be maxi. Material is very thick, almost like a denim - again, not the swingy lightness I had hoped for in springtime. I became exasperated trying to deal with the belt and just gave up.

Versatile but interesting

A wonderful skirt. It's basic enough that you could wear it with a ton of stuff but there are some interesting elements that give it some personality.

It's my new favorite black skirt! Classic piece with an edge.

Fits great! I ordered up because it looked great so my choice was a tad loose but still looked good.

Stunning skirt but runs big

Such a cool skirt! Didn't wear as it was too big (size 4) but will try to rent it again in a size 2. Fits high on the waist and great, heavy material.

Very flattering

Very flattering. It is not as flared as it looks on the model. The uneven hem at the bottom keeps it from having a dowdy look at the longer length. Made of cotton canvas. The waist comes up a bit high and has no give, but it runs true to size. Just recalculate if you are used to relying on stretch fabrics when sizing.

SUPER CUTE, SUPER FLATTERING

Fits perfectly to size, super flattering and slimming. There is no waist give in the event you are between sizes, but it was prefect for me. The material is high quality and on the thick side, I actually wore it with some heat tech leggings underneath in 25 degree weather and it wasn't bad at all. Looks adorable, highly recommend.

STYLIST REVIEW

I love this cute skirt by 3.1 Phillip Lim. The belt adds a nice detail to the skirt. It's comfortable and fitted at the waist. There's comfortable room throughout the midsection and hip area and the fabric is loose so it moves lightly. I recommend wearing your true size and sizing up for your backup size. At 5’3 this skirt hits tea length for me.

Not for the shawtys

Ankle length, which I was looking for a midi length. If I was taller I would have rocked this.

Funky and Fun

I loved the cut of this skirt, and the high waist accentuated my level of "snatched." High quality fabric and the asymmetrical design adds a bit of drama. Loved!

Major statement

This skirt definitely makes a statement. I opted to dress it down with a white t-shirt and while heeled boots to let the skirt steak the show. I got a ton of compliments throughout the day. One thing to note is that the waistband has no give, so order a size up if you're on the cusp. If I rent again I'll rent it in a 6.

i LOVED this skirt. Beautiful weight and movement.

high attention to detail - I wore with long sleeves to work and switched over to an off the should crop for night. The waist is high enough to show minimum skin with a crop. Fun to play with a heavy bottom and lighter top. Very great to walk in - so much movement for a heavier material. Highly recommend.

Great work skirt for the spring!

Worn it multiple times to the office and received a ton of compliments. Fits great and the utility belt detail makes for a bit of a twist on a black skirt.
