HIGH WAIST ZEBRA PRINT FULL MIDI SKIRT
Fashion Statement Skirt
I ordered this skirt and the solid magenta one and when they arrived I loved them both instantly. But...when my husband got home he said they made me look big and wide. I liked the skirts so much I was determined to wear them anyway. A few days later I tried on zebra printed skirt with a black short sleeve portofino shirt tucked in and looked in the mirror and I realized that it did make me look a few sizes larger from the front. The pleating at the waist poofs out to the sides immediately below the tiny waistband which gave me very wide looking hips (think 1800's) and the length hit me a few inches below the knee, cutting me off at the widest point of my calf making my very thin legs look very wide as well (unlike the fitted midi-skirts that hit at the same length). I'm 5'4"/127 usually a 2 or 4 in high-waisted jeans/skirts at Express but a size 6 was a perfect fit so size up. I have a fairly straight figure so this might be better on someone with curves. I'd say its a fun skirt and worth a try to see how it looks on you and/or suits your personal style. I was lucky enough to snag the zebra print portofino shirt before it sold out so I was able to add this awesome print to my wardrobe even though this skirt didn't work out!

Some times Express gets it right and this skirt is no exception. The material is heavy duty and well made. Its kind of a satiny canvas feel to it but really just a heavy duty polyester most like. The pleats are nice and give the skirt a lot of shape. And the pockets are a cute touch. FYI this runs a bit small for an Express piece (were most everything runs larger then average.) I wear a 4 and a small in most everything here,m for reference Im 5'7", 145, 36C. I got this in a 4 and it fits my waste at the smallest point. Just be warned that this is more like a regular 4 then an Express 4.

Amazing printed midi!
I wore this skirt to work with a statement necklace and a pussybow black silk blouse. I received so many compliments! The silhouette is comfortable and the print is stylish yet versatile. It truly looks much more expensive than it is. This was the first piece I had purchased from Express in years. It brought me back in to the store several times since then! I have become a loyal fan since.
