Good work piece

Nice print, conservative length but with the slit and some stretch it was easy to walk in

Beautiful skirt, grows as you wear it

This skirt looks beautiful, and the length is great for taller women (I am 5'8" and it hits just below the widest part of my calves). The material is very comfortable (looks like silk, but has some stretch to it), but the skirt is a bit larger than other DVF skirts I've worn, and grew a bit as I wore it. I would recommended sizing down one size.

Nothing

Very high waisted and very long. Better for someone tall.

Really cute pattern, fit at waist but ran a little loose after waist. Longer than I expected

Sleek, professional, classy.

I did the size 8, not 6, since skirts usually fit me better that way, worked for me.

Beautiful print

Am between 10 and 12 - probably should have gone with 10. But gorgeous even with it being loose around hips and waist.

Fun pattern, not a thick material

My main problem with this skirt is that the fabric is very thin, so it stretches a lot and does not offer structure or slimming effects. It's a fine skirt and I got compliments, but didn't feel great wearing it because I would have preferred it be more structured in the waist to offer more shape.

Nice skirt for work or weekend outing.

Skirt is very comfortable to wear, material is soft so it's easy to move, and flattering. The skirt hit below the knee so it's good for work. The slit in the back is a bit higher than I'm used to, but you can't see anything so it's okay.

Sophisticated and sleek

This gorgeous skirt is one of my favorite rentals! It fits true to size and is high-waisted. It is so flattering and the fabric feels lux. I highly recommend.

Pretty pattern; background is navy, not black; runs long on shorter women.

I like the pattern on this skirt quite a bit. A few words on the colors - the background is navy, not black (I know it looks black in my photo too). The leaves have orange veining, which is subtle and quite pretty. I wore a coral top to pick up on that color. It was long on me (I'm 5'4"), which seems to be the norm with DVF skirts and dresses I've tried to date. They seem to be designed with tall people in mind. It was close fitting, with a vent in back so walking was no problem. All in all, it was a nice pick, though I would have liked it better if it had not been so long on me.

Great piece, may purchase

Fit is very nice and flexible for many body types, it's long but that's what I expected so no complaints there. Hits me about mid calf

Classic...

Gorgeous fabric, unique pattern and color combination... love the ginkgo leaf! The longer length is good for me, gives it kind of a retro vibe... the slit is high but stays classy... fits tts, but the fabric did stretch a bit over the course of the day, wish it stayed as sleek as when it started out!

Great moving fabric. Easy to wear and pair.

Wonderful fabric that was light and moved easily. Comfortable to wear all day. Great length hitting below the knee.

Beautiful print!

The waist was a little big for me, and I tend to wear size 2 skirts, but I still ended up wearing it. It was not super tight so it was appropriate for work. Loved the print. The fabric is not thick but it wasn't thin enough that I worried about panty lines or anything. Would still recommend!
