STRETCH COTTON NATURAL WAIST MINI SKIRT
Love it, except it should come in talls too
Really like this skirt although the short length doesn't make it as versatile as it could be. The size is true to Express sizing although proves tricky to actually wear at the natural waist if you're taller. I tried the 0 and the 2. The 0 fit better all around and looked great on. However, it felt like it was going to ride up walking and definitely became too short going up stairs. The 2 is loose enough to pull down and become low-rise, which then makes the length a little better, although it too feels like it might ride up. The shape changes too (not for the better) since It also doesn't hug around the thighs as much and kind of sticks out a little in back. Plus pulling it down defeats the purpose of it being a natural waist skirt.
The material is stretchy, but the waist definitely is not. This isn't a knit material, it's more like summery suit material. If it wasn't a mini skirt, the material is something you could wear to the office.
Overall, if length isn't a problem, I'd highly recommend this skirt. Both colors will go with anything and the fit is good otherwise. It would be cool if they made this skirt in a length something between a mini and a pencil skirt. Then it would be versatile enough to wear anywhere from a less conservative office to an evening out.
