The material was perfect and fit super nicely! I loved this dress so much. If you're debating renting this, do it. I didn't want to take it off!

SO CHIC!

Absolutely loved loved loved this skirt and the crop top that goes with it! I wore this to my law school graduation party and I got so many compliments. I felt super sexy and fit and beautiful and chic all at once. Really great outfit.

Did you wear heels with the skirt, or flats?
PortiaMay 13, 2015
Heels, 4 inches. The skirt was still a tiny bit too long on me even with the heels but it was fine. Loved it regardless.
LizzyMay 13, 2015
I am 5'7 and 112 lbs... do you think a size 0 will fit? Or too small?
PortiaMay 13, 2015
Yea, it probably will fit. The 2 I wore had some room and I'm about 120 lbs.

This was my first purchase from RTR and I was so impressed, so simple and absolutely loved the material and fit of the skirt and the top that matches. Would definitely recommend.

Fabulous fit, makes for an elegant silhouette!

Definitely a form-fitting skirt! Instead of the crop top, I wore a loose, cream colored silk top tucked in to the skirt. It looked fantastic, and I received many compliments! Things to note: it is definitely tight, and although slightly stretchy, it's not as forgiving as I thought it looked from the pictures. The first skirt I received had a rip up the slit, but fortunately RTR has amazing customer service and they overnighted me a new one the next day. I'll also mention that the slit is relatively high, and the skirt is on the thick side so it can get warm. Also to note: it is definitely meant to be worn with heels! I am 5'7" and wore 5" heels and it was barely off the ground. But, the heels make it look even more elegant and fabulous! All in all, I'd highly recommend this skirt if you're looking for a sleek, beautiful look for a formal or semi-formal affair!

Chic modern simple sexy

This two piece was a home run. I am always a 2 and wore a size 2 skirt and a size small top. The top has a weird space in the sides where it didn't lay flat against my boobs so from a certain angle you could sort of see my bra but it wasn't a big deal. You have to have very toned upper abs because of the skin reveal between the top and bottom. I got so many compliments in it. The look is very modern and I felt very young and modern in it! Also navy is a nice change from black !

STYLIST REVIEW

Sleek & sexy! This form fitting skirt with high slit is perfect for date night! I would pair this with a slinky tank or crop top as it is high waisted. The fabric has some stretch, but if you have wider hips I would size up for your backup size! I also love that its navy, which is perfect for summer when you want to stay away from black!

So many compliments! So different yet classy

This skirt, paired with the matching top was a show stopper!! I found it to be true to size. The material is stretchy, which made it comfortable. The material is also a little heavy, but I appreciated the structure/slimming properties it gave. Even at a hot summer wedding, the high slit made this outfit breathable. Everyone wanted to tell me how much they loved my outfit and had to know where I got it. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind showing a little leg and stomach, all while still looking classy and chic! Fabulous rental!

Loved it so much I wish I owned it!

I ordered the 4R and the 6R as backup, but the 4R ended up fitting me perfectly. I felt comfortable and elegant for the whole night, and ended up not even wanting to take it off. Definitely the right choice for me!

I loved this skirt and shirt combo. Super comfortable

It was a little long. Although I am only 5'1 and I wore 4 1/2 inch heels but it did drag a bit. But it was beyond comfortable. Its navy blue but in certain light most people thought it looked black. All in all I would rent this outfit again. RTR has the BEST customer service as well.

Wore the skirt with matching top to a wedding and loved everything about the look!

Comfy fit perfect to dance in. Runs true to size and material has some stretch to it. Loved the high slit. It was classy and sexy at the same time!

I wore this to a wedding

I was a little unsure about wearing this two-piece outfit to a wedding because of the mid section showing a bit, but I ended up loving it. The high neckline balances it out and looks elegant. The fit it true to size and the material is a great quality, so it is very flattering and does not hug the wrong places. The navy color is really pretty as well. I am about 5'3-- so the skirt was a little long on me, but I wore a 4 inch nude heel with it and it was fine. I would definitely recommend!

No exaggeration, 3 compliments within 10 minutes of walking in the door.

This was actually my second choice, the original dress I wanted wasn't available for the date I needed it, but now I'm 3 weeks out from the event and still hearing about it. Whoever rented the original dress did me a favor. This dress is a perfect combination of class and elegance combined with a little bit of sex appeal without being offensive. YOU WILL LOVE THIS DRESS!!! It fits perfectly and hugs the right places. The material is thicker, stretchy, and comfortable for a long night. I have another formal event coming up, and I'm seriously considering renting it again.

Do it! Rock this dress and you will feel fantastic.

I pretty much created an event to which I could wear this once I saw it on RTR. I wore it to a black tie wine tasting/dinner and I could not have been happier with this dress. I am definitely pear shaped -- my thighs are totally out of proportion with the rest of my body -- so I was a bit worried about how the skirt would look. It was definitely tightest right at the saddle bags, but the slit hit right about the same area so the 6 still worked. The only thing that baffles me is the length. All the previous reviewers (even girls around my height) said they had to wear like 5 inch heels with it in order to get it off the ground, so all I had with me when getting ready were 4 inch wedges. Turns out it barely grazed the ground when I was barefoot. Whoops. I think it may have been because my natural waist sits quite high? Wore the wedges and rocked it anyway. Paired it with the matching top (size small), Kendra Scott abalone earrings, French Connection bag, and aforementioned target wedges.

Extremely classy two piece!

I wore this set to my senior homecoming dance. The fit couldn't have been more perfect! And what's better than not having to wear a bra!? I ordered a 4R and M top also, but went with the 2 and S. The 4R skirt was sewn weird so it looked kinda funny and the M top was too big for my waist. I got so many compliments!

I loved this outfit. I received tons of compliments on it.

Great fit, but you need to be comfortable with showing your stomach! I wore 2 in the skirt, but I wore a Medium on top. the small was too tight on my chest.

This is the epitome of two-piece dresses.

Love, love, love this dress ensemble; so classy for a two-piece. I wore it to my senior homecoming and received so many compliments; this dress is so different from the basic hoco dress everyone always wears. I wore it with gold accents: gold heels, arm cuff, body chain, and earrings. Top fit well, but the bottom was large in waist and long in length ( even with 4in heels.) Since it was too large it wouldn't sit on my waist, but slipped to my hips which made it drag even more. Highly recommended this to anyone who wants to do something different and stand out at a formal event.

It was super comfortable and cute on! Got a ton of compliments!

The top stayed in place, never felt like it was hiking up. The skirt slit is a bit high-just be careful dancing but it was never a problem.

Loved this outfit and I'm so sad I have to return it!! Perfect fabric, color, cut..everything!

Fabric was amazing! Little heavier so perfect for December in Chicago. Wore it for my birthday and never felt so sexy! Very true to size. Would have worn the 0 but the one I received was a little ragged. 2 still fit perfectly.

Love it, and the slit was just the right amount of sexy. I did my best Angelina Jolie all night!

I ordered a 2 and a 0. The 0 actually fit a bit better around my waist (I have a very small waist), but was significantly shorter that the 2 so that it was too short when I wore it with heals. The 2 still fit fine, just not as snug, but was very comfortable to wear for a while and sit in.

Comfortable and different from the rest!

I wore this with the matching top. I was worried about the length of it but I wore 4 inch heals with it and it was the perfect length, just long when I took them off! It was so comfortable to dance in and I didn't want to take it off! Also the material is think enough to wear anything underneath. Totally recommend for anyone who wants a more edgy, unique look for a formal event.

GORGEOUS. Felt like a supermodel.

I had to get a 2R because my size (0R) wasn't available. So the skirt was a little big for me, but it still fit ok.

The top ran a little small and I found that the skirt was a perfect fit and true to size. It was a beautiful navy and made of a sturdy fabric that kept me warm in January. I received countless compliments. I wish I could wear this everyday!!

Super trendy

I typically wear a 26 in pants or a 2 in dress. I ended up wearing the 4 because the 2 squeezed me even if I pulled up to bottom of top. The length was still great on the 4. The skirt does not stretch in waist so if you have a little extra skin it will squeeze a little. Definitely remember going up a size

I felt beautiful in this dress

This dress (or technically skirt and top) were amazing. I felt so sexy yet classy, and I received a ton of complements. My waist is much smaller than my hips, so while a size 4 would have fit best at the waist, I definitely needed the size 6 for my hips. I am also very tall, so I was a bit worried about the length. However, it ended up being really nice. It definitely was a bit shorter on me than I think it is meant to be worn, but it still worked really well. Overall, I loved this dress and would totally wear it again.

The skirt and crop top were amazing! I received tons of compliments throughout the night.

I think it fit like a glove. I ordered the top in medium because I have a bigger bust and couldn't have been happier with the fit! I paired it with nude strappy heels and a military style jacket to make it more edgy. Loved it!

Sexy and classy

This two piece set was amazing! It was the best combination of sexy, classy, and comfortable. It was easy to move and dance in and the material was beautiful. My only complaint was that the dress was a bit too large in the waist but with a few safety pins the fit was perfect. I highly recommend this outfit!

The skirt is amazing... The silhouette is demure but the skit is sexy!

I typically wear a 4 but I got the 6 bc there's nothing worse than a crop top outfit with your belly being squeezed at the top. That said, I think I could have worn the 4 but I didn't order an extra size. The skirt fit great though. It was ; I am 5'5" and it was the perfect length with 4 inch heels. Wouldn't have been able to wear flats with it though. Would definitely rent again!

One fab combo!

This skirt and top combo was exactly what I was looking for! Something simple, yet sexy, chic, elegant and comfortable! The skirt does run a little bit large but it wasn't enough to be a problem. The skirt just fell naturally at my waist a little bit lower than I had originally hoped it would but it still worked perfectly. Received a lot of compliments throughout the night and I would highly recommend this dress to anyone!

This skirt and top combo is the perfect mix of sexy and classy. With the high waisted skirt you show just the right amount of skin. I've never received so many compliments on an outfit.

GORGEOUS skirt - I definitely recommend it!!!!

I wore this skirt for a wedding and actually paired it with the Elizabeth & James Gorda top, instead of the matching navy crop top. It was AMAZING. It looked awesome with the top, because the top is a little looser (not a fan of the tight crop top with a tight skirt). I usually wear a 4, but wore the 6R because I am a pear shape and don't like when skirts are stretched across the hips too tightly. I was worried it would be too long (I am 5'2), but it was the perfect length when worn with 2-3 inch heels. It fit perfectly at the top of the waist, just as shown on the model, and the fit was absolutely perfect, hugging the waist, hips & butt, but just the right amount. The material is actually pretty thick and heavy, but very, very comfortable, and the high slit makes it perfect for the spring / summer.

Amazing skirt... if you want to dress up, stand out and look different from others... GET THIS SKIRT

Absolutely stunning skirt. I got so many compliments through the entire night. I did not end up wearing the matching crop top with it. Instead i choose to wear and tight, silvery gray, formal crop top. As for shoes, I wore Stuart weitzman Nudiest shoes which are almost 5 inches tall. The skirt almost touched the floor but I lifted the skirt a little higher and it was perfect!! Girls that are shorter than 5'5 might have an issue with the length. Usually designer clothes runs a lot smaller but this is true to size.

It was a sexy and flattering maxi skirt.

This was shipped to me as a freebie because something I reserved wasn't available. It was a 2 which I usually am but found it a little big around the waist. I am 5'1" and it was still long in 4" heels. Received so many compliments and I would love to purchase this and have it hemmed. Great random pick by RTR for a rehearsal dinner

It was the perfect color for a more formal wedding, dark but not black.

The top and skirt seem to fit true to size. The slit looked like it had been patched up a couple times, but was only noticeable upon close inspection.

Thick material- did get hot while dancing- definitely worth it though

I wish I could have gotten a 2P instead of a 2R since it was long on me, still looked beautiful and very chic and sleek on.
