HIGH WAIST WOVEN STRIPE A LINE SKIRT
2 sizes smaller than express's usual
I typically wear a 2 in Express pants and dresses. I ordered this in a 4 online according to other reviews that said it runs small. While I could get the 4 on (over a basic tank top) I think it would become uncomfortable to sit in, or too tight to wear a button up shirt. I will be exchanging it for a 6 - hopefully it fits!
Of note, only the waist band is unreasonably small..the rest of the skirt fits fine.
Other than the sizing being off, it's a cute skirt, thick enough for winter with tights, but not so thick I won't wear it in the summer too (at least in Chicago).

This skirt is really cute. I bought an XS and fits perfect, does not run small or large. Good to wear it during the day with flats or at night with heels.

Too much volume, not as pictured
First of all: there are NO pockets. So, image does not match the skirt.
Secondly, the waistline being so much smaller than it should makes it look too baggy (and I am an A line lover).
This is not flattering on most body types, I would stay away.
Only good thing is fabric, which is thick and feels nice.

cute but tiny
This skirt is quite cute, but as other reviewers said, defiantly order a size up.

High Waist Indeed!
Saw this online, then in the store- and I had to have it! So I bought it, without trying on. I know how Express fits me, and rarely have problems (unless it's a personal dislike). Anyways, bought my normal size, and dang! It was at my rib cage! So I ordered it online 2 sizes up, and it's the same thing! I really wanted to love this, but it's truly a high high waist. Just not for me :(
Sidenote: Beautiful thick fabric, and seemed good quality! Good length as well
