Joan Rivers Wardrobe Builders Complement Slim Skirt
JOAN RIVERS QUALITY
Nice fabric, fully lined, button in waistband over non-exposed zipper.....quality fairly priced. BUT....not to sound "prudish", but at age 84,size 14, 5'6" tall, I like to look as nice, (and feel comfortable) as anyone might, but have trouble feeling comfrortable in clothes that are borderline too short in the first place, but then "hike up" another 2-3 inches above the knee when sitting. This is my pet peeve with all pencil type skirts offered, no matter the manufacturer. Thank God David prefers their designs fit at the NATURAL waist, claiming most women prefer it, and look better for it. A tall order, I admit, to try and satisfy the conservatively dressed young/professional and/or mature woman, with the less discerning to what is appropriate to age/figure/size. But JR fashions are top quality, have attention to detail, and evoke a subdued, current style. Perhaps that is because JR herself was a mature but glamourous woman.
love this skirt
I rarely can tuck a top inside a skirt due to extra weight around the stomach area.This skirt is the exception. I ABSOULUTELY ADORE THIS SKIRT. I bought this skirt in the color white. I wore it the other day with a white tank top and pearls, Received many compliments.
Great classic...runs a bit big...
Got this in Khaki and Black- wardrobe staples. Love the length also. Nicely lined. Did find the black skirt, in paticular, running large. WIshed this came in XXS sizing. Waist and hips on the black XS larger than the Khaki XS. Will reorder hoping this was just a variation in sizing. Would love this skirt to be made in XXS, as a pencil skirt is meant to be more fitted.
I received this skirt today and omg it is bad! It fits fine except the lining is about 1/2 to 3/4 inches longer then the actual skirt! And the lining isn't even. Part of it is about 1/2 inches long on one side and 3/4 inches longer on the other! Now I will have to have it hemmed. This is the first skirt I have ever order from Joan Rivers and this might be the last. I have ordered jackets from her and they are great but apparently skirts are not her thing or the company that makes them for her don't pay attention. Sorry Joan not more from me. To expensive to return. : (
I LOVE THESE!!
I first ordered these in the xl, then lost 40 lbs(YAY)!!! and reordered in med! perfect for office, casual, (and dinner out) dressed up. I love the length, always appropriate.
This is the best slim skirt I have EVER OWNED...I am a little larger and I do not even have to undo the button....Fits very comfortable, I may as well order more if there are any left.....You won't be disappointed...You might order one size smaller....
Love this skirt
I love this skirt.
I usually don't wear a slim skirt, but this one is comfortable, and flattering. It is very easy to dress up or down.
Like the great Joan Rivers, this skirt is simply perfect. The length is modest but not frumpy . It has a classic kick pleat in the back and, thankfully, not a too long, too revealing slit.
The fit is perfect for me. I need one of these in every color, I think!
bought this skirt in 2 colors love it. the fit is great go with your regular size on this one
Really, nothing special
I ordered small tan. It fit in the waist but the hips were too big. The fabric was thin and just not something I would use. Returned it immediately.
DON'T THINK TWICE
I needed a "corporate" white skirt for work and decided to try this one. I was very skeptical because straight skirts are hard to fit and white can be tricky. When I tried on this skirt I was pleasantly surprised. It is a perfect fit (bought a small) and the material isn't flimsy. The lining keeps it from being see through. I am 5'7" and it hits just below my knee. I may have it hemmed because I prefer a skirt to hit the top of my knee. That is my preference and doesn't affect my overall rating. I can't wait to wear it with a gingham shirt and colorful jacket. Thank you Joan.
Skirt fit well across hips, but the waist band did not lay right and pulled skirt up.
Fabric poor--wrinkled within minutes of wearing and sitting!!!! I purchased
black and kahki. Black fit better than kahki. This is the second or third item of
Joan River's clothing I have purchased where the fabric has been less than
