Louis Dell'Olio Faux Suede Mid-Calf Riding Skirt w/Seam Detail
Love This Skirt!
This faux suede skirt looks, feels, and wears like real suede--only better because I can wash it gently without fear of destroying it! I like longer skirts for work, so I am looking forward to cooler weather so that I can finally wear my skirts to work on a daily basis. This skirt looks awesome with boots! I bought it in black, so my knee-high black boots will have a partner-in-crime...Excellent purchase at this price! More colors, please!
Cute but trouble with wrinkles
I like the skirt, but the wrinkle factor is making me think of sending it back. It came in terribly wrinkled and I am afraid to steam it.
I tried it on and it fit well in the waist but was very long on me beyond mid calf.
I got it in taupe 3X and not sure if I will wear it
I WISH I ORDERED IT IN EVERY COLOR
Virtually everyone had already agreed, this is a GREAT Skirt. It is a little long, but each to hem. It is very true to size and unfortunately a tried two sizes, and now can't get the grey. I have the black in medium & it's perfect. I'm 5"7' and my height really shows off the detailing. I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE FIRST DAY OF COOL WEATHER.
This skirt is VERY well made - material and craftsmanship.
HIGH END SKIRT
... gorgeous, washes well, fit as it should. I'm 5'8" tall and the skirt hits me mid-calf or a bit lower. Perfect for shooties with black tights. The skirt is lined like a designer brand. My first Louis Dell'Olio purchase and it won't be my last.
This is a beautiful skirt. I love it. The sizing is not consistent. I ordered the grey, black and taupe. I wear a 1X / 2X. I ordered the grey and taupe in 1X. Both were snug. The taupe was a little bigger. As for the 2X black one, way to big. There just too much difference in the 1X to the 2X. So, I'm keeping the taupe one for now.
This is such a handsome-looking skirt. The faux suede is another wondrous Linea product. I'll have to shorten my grey choice to my boot length, but it will be well worth it. At this price, the mid-calf riding skirt is not to be missed.
I'm very particular about my clothing accentuating the positive, and hiding the negative. I'm 5 ft 4 1/2 inches tall, 130 lbs, and short waisted...and don't necessarily like my hips. The skirt's cut masks my hips, and hangs perfectly. I purchased this skirt in purple, and love it. Size small fit me perfectly with a hem line falling a few inches above my ankle.
I can wear it casually with a tank top and sandals for a Bohemian look, or add a riding jacket and boots for a country look. I've even worn it with a wedge heal, blouse, jacket and scarf for church. It is so versatile. The faux suede material is beautiful, and the satin lining feels amazing against your skin. It is an extremely well made garment, and well worth the price. If you are even thinking about getting it, don't hesitate to order. You won't be sorry.
Bang for the Buck
I owned a faux suede set years ago that I loved but I could not find anything else that was comparable. I bought two skirts, black and purple. I was pleasantly surprise. Not only was the fabric gorgeous but it was designed beautifully. I would definately recommend this skirt. It can be worn casually or dressy. I am now interested in exploring the rest of Louis' line.
You can tell a well made, gentile garment. The inside finishing of this skirt is carefully done. The satin lining lends elegance. Will be perfect with my riding boots. Cannot find this quality in the ready-to-wear stores unless one is purchasing the designer goods with many $$$$$$.
I'm 5'7'', 135 lbs & the small fits me perfectly. The skirt is longish so perhaps shorter women should pass on this one. The skirt is very flattering, no tummy bulge visible, looks like real suede (I got it in grey) & any average or tall woman can wear it regardless of her age .
Beautiful skirt, but too long
I was excited to get my skirt, but when I tried it on it was waaaay to long for me. It was past my ankles and touching the top of my feet. I am 5ft 4in. Back it goes. It is beautifully made and the fabric is very nice. I am sorry it did not work for me.
Good Old Fashoned QUALITY!!!
I usually don't bother to write a review,especially when there are already as many as this terrific skirt has, but I am doing so regardless. I am 62 so I remember all the great NY designers of years past, and Louis is included in that group. This skirt is representative of what great design and excellent workmanship should be. The fit, the feel, and attention to detail is excellent. I purchased a small, and just tried it on about 1/2 hr ago, and knew it was a keeper immediately. Did I mention that the price is crazy. I work at a well known department store, and could not touch this quality for less than 80 or 90 bucks. The faux suede is soft and very realisitc. Very, very happy with this purchase.
