Kelly by Clinton Kelly Printed Pencil Skirt w/Side Zip
Love, Love the skirt, but
I find that the waist measurements are smaller than usual for QVC. The little waist button tab adjustment really doesn't provide a lot of adjustment allowance. Basically the tab provides a little more room if you have some mild bloating, but if the skirt doesn't fit with the tabs buttoned, it probably won't fit when they are released either. Otherwise, I love the skirt and the material. I will keep for a week or two to see if I can lose a little weight. My department store size 10's fit fine, even with a fixed waistband and no elastic or other adjustment. QVC sizes usually run larger than the department store brands in the waist."
Wanted to like it
I ordered the black in size 16; the brown in size 18. Black was snug; brown was loose. Due to the cotton content was afraid the black would shrink too much and not be wearable but afraid the brown wouldn't shrink enough. Didn't want to take a chance on either; sent both back.
Started the day out great .....
However, now I'm embarassed by all the wrinkles in this skirt. Also a little bit of stretching going on. Not sure if I'll ever wear again. Thank goodness I grabbed a very long sweater on the way out the door.
Need a slip
This is a nice skirt and true to size, however, it is not lined so just be aware that you will need to wear a slip with it. Wearing a slip isn't the easiest either since there is a slit up the back of the skirt. As long as you don't mind your slip showing :( you will be fine. I wore it to work with boots and tights and the skirt kept riding up and bunching up in the front. I'm thinking of returning it but I am not sure yet because I really do like it.
Chic and flattering
I ordered a size larger than I usually wear to ensure a comfortable fit at the waist. I'm glad I did. The print of this skirt is high end, but it is not a winter skirt unless you wear with tights and a sweater. The fabric is lighter weight than you would think from looking at the picture, The length is just above my knee, which I prefer (I'm 5'7"), and the fit is not too narrow, I'm very pleased with skirt, and may order it in the other color.
True to size I wear a small in d&c so i bought a size 8 in this. It fits me perfect,neutral color is nice for a change. Thanks to other ratings really helped me out.
This is a Nice Skirt!
Love the weight of the Fabric, Will look Great with My White , Grey or Black Blouse.
It is a Perfect fit and Comfortable.
I am So happy with this Skirt! I am 5'3 weight about 150 Size 8 is a perfect fit,
Not tight. Just Right.
Great Pencil Skirt
I just received the skirt today:) I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!! It's light weight(great for this 100 degree weather ), great neutral, I can pair with so many of my great blouses and cardigans or jackets for work and it's NOT a POLYESTER blend!!! It's true to size. I'm 5'5" and the skirt comes right above the knee. Clinton, please give us more clothing like this. Love you!!
Just received this skirt and it fits very well in size 18. Length hits me at the knee. Fabric very cool on a hot summer day. Few wrinkles came out without ironing. Just spirtz with water bottle and let the skirt hang dry. Going back for the other color.
Order up if you are hippy.
I can't believe this quality skirt is available at this price. I ordered down a size. The skirt fit in the waist, but hugged my hips a bit too much. I could order up, but then the waist would be too large. If you have the body for a slim skirt, don't pass this up!
Clinton Pencil Skirt
Love this skirt. My first Clinton purchase and I wasn't sure about sizing. Ordered my usual size 6 and it is perfect. I'm wearing it now and getting ready to order another color. Thank you Clinton for such a nice product. Very professional, very comfy. Love that it can be worn with a top tucked in or worn over. Smooth fit with a normal waistline.
Looks & feels great!
I've always watched What Not To Wear so I was thrilled to find a piece from Clinton Kelly that worked for me at an affordable price. This skirt looks like tweed but is nice & light & the sizing is perfect. Got tons of compliments when I wore it & this will work year round.
