Joan Rivers Classic Pique' Slim Skirt
Love this skirt
I have this skirt in white, would sure like another one. Joan, bring it back in white. it washes well, true white, goes with all my jackets.
As a curvy size L, I always order up one size in slim skirts. This is my second JR skirt. Ordered XL in yellow. The colour is nice, but the fabric is YUCK! Did not care for it at all...kind of on the cheap & matronly side (sorry Joan). The waist was huge in the XL too & the length was just not flattering on my 5'6". I'm having such a hard time with sizing at QVC, even using the size charts. Think I'll just give up on clothing altogether as returns are too expensive.
I didn't even try it on...
I wanted a red skirt, but this color is definitely not a true red. It's a pink or coral red but not red red. The color on the website even looks red so I ordered it. I took it out of the bag and held it up and saw the color......yuck. It could fit nice I don't know, but this is going back. Please watch how you label colors QVC because this was not "bright red". Now I have to go shopping for a red skirt.
Great Easy Care Skirt
Beautiful skirt. Travels well. Washable and dries without any wrinkles. Own 3 colors. Jackets are also washable and look terrific!
Joan Does Great Skirts!
This is my 3rd Joan Rivers slim skirt and I love them. I'm an XL and they fit fantasticly on me. I got the green one in this particular style and get many compliments on the color. I will definitely get more. My only criticism is the lining. It doesn't hold up well at the seams on any of the three I bought. I don't care much since it's not seen and the skirts are a great value.
I got the navy which is really more of a royal blue. It's a very well made garmet. It's lined. Thank You Joan! The size was true. It's a great basic skirt for us office girls. The pique has a strong texture so it makes it a little different then your average straight skirt. It's not too stiff. It has a nice summer look to it. It will do a blazer, sweater or blouse equally, sandles or heels. I think I'm going to be very happy with it.
Good Color Selection
I bought this skirt in 4 colors: white, yellow, green, blue. The fit is true to size but I found the lining to be a little too thin. Overall, a good buy.
This is a home run!
I love this skirt! And I am thrilled that Joan Rivers' clothes are selling as separates. As a 1x lady, I sometimes find that the bottoms are too tight but the tops are just right or close to too big. Life isn't easy when you have a pear-shape!
But this skirt is beautiful and sized perfectly! It is well made and very flattering. It astounds me that career wear for plus sized women is so hard to find. However, Joan's clothes will be solving my problems with well made, high end clothing at a reasonable price.
I will be back for a few more of these - especially for the ubiquitous white skirt for the summer!
Really well made
I wanted to love this skirt, but.......It is extremely well-made and looks expensive. (I recently saw one in a dept store for way more money!). At 5'3 though, it is just too long. I like my skirts at the top of my knee. This was too long and therefore not very flattering. I couldn't justify the extra cost of taking it to a tailor for hemming so it's going back.
Nice but too big
I like the skirt, the pique works for me and it's a classic slim skirt. I purchased in large given that this is the size I normally wear (or even an XL at times). I'm a size 14 depending on the fabric. If a skirt is very form fitting I need an XL. But, I ordered this skirt in Large and it was too big by at least an inch! I feel like a balloon in the skirt. I like it but I need a smaller size. Also, the red works for a top I want to wear with it but it's not a true red. It has a dark coral look to it.
Joan has the BEST slim skirts on QVC, hands down!!
Love everything about JR's slim or pencil skirts. The small pleat in back [does not go halfway up your thighs] the bit of gathering in back, the tapering - just perfect. It doesn't come in at the waist & flare out on the bottom like most slim skirts do - not this one - it's THE BEST fit and BEST SLIM SKIRT on the Q, and I believe I tried just about all of the different brands. I am petite 5'3" & love the length. Ordered the XS in 4 colors came back for the other 2 today.
The turquoise skirt and shell match perfectly and look great under just about anything [almost like a dress, but better fit for me], as does navy, and, of course, white. JOAN, WE NEED THE SHELL IN YELLOW & GREEN TO MATCH THE SKIRTS - PLEASE!!
There is very little or no "shine, or sheen" on this fabric, nothing like stretch polyester fabric. It has a nice texture and all colors look great & bright and will make you smile. Ladies, I highly recommend this skirt. Rating is a 5+++
Not Like Previous Pique Skirts by JR
I have 3 of JR other pique knit skirts, and love them. So I tried this new summer version in both white and turquoise, along with a white jacket. They are made of a really cheap material that is nothing like the other pique. They are thin, scratchy, rough and no stretch. The skirts are at least lined, where the white jacket isn't, and is extremely see-through. Very disappointing quality on this one. All going back.
