HIGH WAIST TEXTURED TWEED A LINE SKIRT
Fit isn't the best
I love the material and the style - I even bought the matching top for it. But, the fit is a little off for my body. I usually wear size 6 in the high waist skirts (tiny waist, long torso and big 'ol hips). I thought this would stand true for this skirt, especially since it is A-line. The 8 is a tight fit on me and the 10 falls too low. I have to really wear the skirt high on my waist for the 8 to be comfortable but then it becomes almost too short for my fairly liberal office (I'm 5'8" and it falls mid-thigh). I wish it were longer! But, I still like it because it looks amazing with the tweed cropped top or cropped striped sweater (in black) and black tights. I'm not sure if I"ll wear the skirt in the summer since it will be too short on me without stockings.

Great Skirt, Off on size
Literally leaving work over lunch today to buy the next size up, My sizes at Express have always been tried and true. I even tried on another skirt in my regular size and I had no problems. Just like the other reviewer-this didn't even zip up. Love it, so will just find one that fits.

I was so excited to get this skirt!!! It's super cute and I loved that the white shirt combo in the picture. I just got it today and it barely zipped. I normally wear a 6 at Express - ALL my jeans are from Express and are all 6's (my 4's are stowed for good days ;)). I have a 27.5" waist so I can't believe it doesn't fit!! I love this skirt so much that as much as I don't want to, I'm going to shoot for an 8 and see how it fits. Booooooo :( Order up ladies!!

Classy yet youthful
I've always thought tweed was a beautiful fabric but it can tend to look old. However, the structured A-line shape of this skirt keeps the fabric youthful without looking too stiff.
