HIGH WAIST EXPOSED ZIP A LINE SKIRT
I have this skirt in red and purple. Very flattering to an hour glass shape.

VERY high waisted
This skirt was a total steal when I got it during a recent Tick-tock sale and applied my $15 reward from my Express card.
I am usually a 6 in Express pencil skirts and natural waist skirts (and an 8/10 in jeans, depending on style), but ordered this in an 8 based on another reviewer's comments. The skirt is SUPER narrow at the waistband, but keep in mind that it is a high-waist look. The waistband hits above my belly button (a bit higher than other high-waist skirts I own), but the skirt itself falls just past my fingertips (about mid-thigh on my 5'4 frame). For some work environments, this might be appropriate but I wouldn't count on it as an office skirt.
I did try on the 10 as well because I was worried the 8 wasn't fitting as intended, but the A-line was much more accentuated on the 10 and made the skirt look frumpy. The larger size also made me look heavier while the 8 had a slimming effect on my tummy and hips.
Overall, a great purchase -- fully lined and very well made -- and the blue will look stunning with a white or cream shirt. I do recommend going one size up or trying on in store before ordering.

Great Skirt! ALMOST perfect
I love this skirt! I am 5'8" its not too short or too long. I wear it to work and out at night - I have it in blue and just bought the black one.
The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because it wrinkles easily and the seams on the blue one started coming apart so I had to have it fixed.

I bought this skirt in black and blue...true to size, lined, a classic skirt. Looks great with a lace top!

I bought this in my normal size and it fit great. Looks best with a shirt tucked in I think. Material is nice and soft and is a medium weight-also has a silky lining.
