Linea by Louis Dell'Olio Pull-on Boho Skirt
I was looking forward to receiving this skirt in time for summer. I received it today and knew immediately that it is not for me. Although I did not try it on, it looked only slightly large. The color is not "aquamarine," but is truly a mint or even seafoam green. That alone would not have made me return it though. The fabric is what did it. When I read "rayon/polyester," I thought okay, rayon is soft & cool & perfect for me for summer. This is a coarser fabric. I have fibromyalgia & sensitive skin so I no longer wear rough feeling fabrics. This felt rough to me & upon close inspection the fabric design looks like it has little pills/balls all over it. Disappointed for sure.
Ugh...not for me
I should have listened to my instincts on this skirt. I am 5'3", size XL - I know it's very tricky to find a skirt in this style that flatters my body type. On me, it came right above my ankles, and the dropped seam hit me right at the very widest part of my hips. From the side, it was hideous....added at least 20 lbs. to my frame, and that is the last thing I need. The fabric was nice and cool and not see-through...I am sad it doesn't work for me. Usually I find that Louis is a genius with his designs and how they flatter a myriad of body types....this one doesn't fall into that category. If you are tall(er) and more slender, this would be lovely, I'm sure. If you are a shorter apple type, keep looking.
I love the way this skirt fits; it is very flattering on. I am a pear shape and have been trying to find longer skirts to wear but none were flattering on me. This skirt is light and airy and does not make me look bigger in the thigh area. I ordered a small but am guessing I maybe could have gone w/ the xsmall. Will keep the small and wear it a little lower on the waist. I Did take one star off because this skirt is VERY SEE THRU. Some of the reveiws say that a slip is not needed (I have the aqua). I like the fit so much I was willing to overlook this.
Love The Style
Just the look of it, I wanted to have it, so I am buying one for me..
I bought this skirt in the khaki and wore it for the first time today. It was so comfortable and flattering that I'm ordering the blue and the black! Great material, which doesn't wrinkle or show-through and would travel very well. Living in Ohio, this skirt would work three seasons out of the year, and I can definetly see this as a cool alternative to shorts or crop pants in warmer weather months. Highly recommend.
Wash and Wear
Purchased 2 of these versatile pieces, they make great travel companions. This boho is more structured and easy to wear. Was disappointed in the sizing as the black was just right with wiggle room and the aquamarine tighter than I could comfortable wear. I understand that in the cutting process this happens, but wish it hadn't been the one that I received. Don't let this detour you from purchasing this great skirt, I think I'm going to purchase another black for a spare.
What can I say about a wonderful designer who keeps up coming with more and more great items. I love this skirt and paired it with his gorgeous lace jacket. This skirt is a bit shorter than his other Boho skirts I have and also a different fabric. I do love them both and may go back for more colors since I have the entire selection of colors in the longer, lighter weight Boho skirt. I get so many compliments when I wear his clothing and this outfit was no different. I have it in the tan and the tan/tangerine lace jacket. Everything is true to size. Keep up the great work and please come on the Q more often. I love seeing Louis with his beautiful wife and all his tips on how to mix and match his pieces. Thanks Q and LD!!!
Is Louis a GENIUS, or what!
Just returned from a trip and had 3 of these skirts with me! The pebbled crepe is FABULOUS! It's cool in summer and warm in winter. It breathes, never wrinkles, doesn't cling at all, and has a gorgeous drape and hand! This skirt is very different from the tiered boho skirt - looks more elegant. You could wear this ANYWHERE and feel comfortable and well dressed! I would buy this in any color and sincerely hope that it - and the matching tunic - will return again and again! Thank you SO much, Louis! Your clothes are my wardrobe work horses! But they look like swans!
LOVE PEBBLE CREPE!
Originally purchased this skirt in black in XL - loved it but was too big. Returned it and ordered L in the black and the tan. They fit perfectly! Easy to wear - and easy care. My favourite way to wear it is with Louis's Pebble Crepe tunic top - it's a beautiful two piece outfit! LOVE LOUIS DELL'OLIO DESIGNS. MORE PLEASE!
I love the pebble crepe fabric and this is no exception. Skirts are so comfotable in summer and this will be a great addition to my LDO boho collection. I bought the sand, it will go with so many other items.
Pebble Crepe Classic
This skirt is a wonderful addition to the Linea pebble crepe collection! The light, flowy fabric is well suited to the airy boho sillouette and the length will make this skirt a great substitute for pants when the dog days of summer arrive. The three colors mix and match well with other Linea pebble crepe pieces. The fit is generous so check the the click here measurements if between sizes. I will wear these skirts to threads!!
Love Pebble crepe
I love these and bought all 3 colors. I purchased my usual size M, and they went over the hips with ease. Being curvy this is very important. They will be perfect during the dog days of summer.
