Perfect, flattering fit shape and colour. This will definitely be a go to piece for the office.

beautiful and stylish skirt. very nice thick garment. it is true to size but i sized up as i wanted have more room for my legs.

15th February 2016

The quality is fabulous as usual and the red is a true red, just as on the site. I find the skirt nips in a bit too much at the waist for me after several pregnancies. It is also very long, which is no surprise as it's cut to sit on the true waist - several inches above where I normally wear a skirt. However, it is exactly the quality material and colour that I wanted. Therefore, I plan to have it tailored to both shorten its overall length slightly, and address the slightly too tight waistband. If it had been available in one size larger, I would have gone with that.I would love to see this skirt in a plain, true white for summer wear.

Fabulous heavy jersey skirt which looks fabulous at work. Covers all lumps and maintains its shape really well. Thanks Baukjen

13th January 2016

Lovely colour and very stylish. if it had been lined, i would have loved it more, hence the 4 stars.

1st January 2016

Good quality fabric, true to size (I'm a 16). Have worn it to a party with sparkly top but will also be good for work or casual wear.

1st January 2016

Quality and fit is very good. Feels comfortable and looks great with the Ashby top in the same colour.

30th December 2015

Worn daytime very fitted feels very sexy worn with boots & leather biker jacket

21st September 2015

Excellent fit. I was a bit disappointed that the skirt has a split in the back, that was not clear at time of purchase.

8th September 2015

Love, love, love this skirt! It is so comfortable but stylish. I wear this to work and I always feel polished and pulled together. I want to get it in another color now!

18th August 2015

I now have 3 of the high waisted pencil skirts the red the yellow and this one. The quality is excellent they are machine washable with care, the colours are bright and true to the website and the fit is excellent. I am quite small and find that many brands are too roomy for me - but not Baukjen. The size 6 is perfect both in fit and length. I wear all of these skirts for work but they also work as day to evening items - I have never worn this skirt without someone complimenting it.

5th August 2015

Elegant and simple and very comfortable. A great work skirt.

31st July 2015

I have bought this pencil skirt because I highly appreciate the stylish fit of a pencil skirt combined with the comfort of a jersey material. The skirt did not dissapoint in any field and I will be able to style it more formally with heels and a tailored jacket or casually with a simple t-shirt and flats. However, I did find the skirt a bit long (I'm over 5.6 feet tall and a size UK12) as I'm not so fond of mid-lenght skirts, so I had it shortened at my tailor's. Otherwise sizing is accurate, maybe a tad on the tight side but it fits me like a glove. Overall experience is very nice and I'm quite sure I would not hesitate to buy a Baukjen skirt again.

31st July 2015

Perfect Pencil Skirt. Fits perfectly, very comfortable and flattering. Wore it to the office with red top and black cardigan and everyone commented on the super stylish skirt.

21st July 2015

Worn at work with instant compliments. Lovely thick material. I'm a size 8 but bought a 6 because of the availability and it fitted (making me feel even happier with my purchase!).

9th July 2015

Just didn't fit me I'm afraid but I should probably have bought one size up (12).

10th April 2015

As a teacher, this skirt is both stylish and practical. It is a really good length and extremely comfortable and easy to wear. I pair it with a neutral top and the grey Kingsbridge cropped jacket. I love the colour, it brightens any day!

A must have for your work wardrobe

28th October 2014

I wear this skirt to work and many have commented on it. It works brilliantly with a shirt and belt and is fitted without being too restricting. The material is thick and good quality.

9th January 2014

Can be dressed up or down- lovely colour and material. Comfortable to wear. I followed other reviewers' advice and sized up which meant that the skirt fitted really well everywhere but the waist (a little loose). Washes very well but fabric does stretch a more than a previous version of this skirt that I also have. Would recommend!

7th January 2014

I wear this skirt so often to work. In fact I have it on now! It's elegant yet comfy unlike most of my work wardrobe.

7th January 2014

The skirt is flattering and fits perfectly as long as you get one size up. I have already recommended your products to friends!

29th December 2013

Was not the style of fabric I expected - didn't look very smart

20th December 2013

A beautiful, timeless classic brought up to date in a deep purple. Fantastic addition to my wardrobe.

19th December 2013

Very stylish. Lots of good comments received on the colour.

19th December 2013

Love this skirt. So comfortable to wear and very flattering to wear.

19th December 2013

I wear this skirt as a work staple, although it would also be great for going out. Stunning blue/purple colour. Heavy jersey fabric that slims in all the right places. I get compliments every time I wear it.

19th December 2013

Lovely feet and very elegant

19th December 2013

I love this skirt. The fabric is wonderful, the tailoring genius. I usually stick to black, but feel so pleased to have gotten this skirt in ink. I wear it with knee-high boots and a simple T-shirt and the combination is striking, yet totally comfortable.

19th December 2013

I have not worn the item yet because it is so figure hugging and I would like to tone up first.I am looking forward to wearing the skirt and feeling and looking sexy in it!

slinky skirt
1st July 2013

chose the ochre to brighten up wardrobe. Disappointed to see it in the sale a week later! Sizing dubious as usual. I'm a standard size 12 but ordered the 14. Although there seems to be excessive room around the waist I could not have risked a tighter hip line. Seems very comfortable but have not worn it properly yet.

Great core piece but size up!
21st June 2013

I had been debating purchasing this skirt for a long time and finally caved - buying a Pink Rose. Very bright IRL but extremely flattering and versatile. I was weary about sizing up, normally wearing a UK size 10, sometimes 12, in skirts there was only a 14 available and I thought it would be too big. Decided I loved the colour and if it was too big, I could have it taken in. Well, no need. Although it is slightly loose, it is truly a better fit this way. A 12 would've been less flattering, and shown too many "lumps and bumps". I love this skirt so much that I immediately ordered another in Black as well. I hope they will make them in other colours, beige or camel would be lovely!

Great skirt but the colour is wrong
6th May 2013

I had this seen this skirt on Style Pantry's fashion blog and there it looked a very bright yellow. She lives in California with all that sunshine, but I think her images are PhotoShopped to bring out the colour. When I saw it on the Baukjen website, it was not as bright as she had photographed, but it was still a strong yellow. However when I received it it was definitely more of a mustardy ochre. I have a somewhat boyish figure with hips, so it certainly gave me curves.This skirt hit a couple of inches over the knee, so it was a long expanse of fabric as it's also high waisted. The fabric was good quality but the colour was all wrong for this season. I wanted something more refreshing rather than warm.

Very flattering skirt
9th April 2013

I am very happy with this skirt. I have an hourglass figure and it's a very flattering shape. The material is good quality and I would certainly recommend it.

Love it but too small
23rd February 2013

I gave this item a 3 for fit because the other items I purchased in a size US 4 fit well. I do believe this is intended to be a super tight, thick jersey skirt but I think it can still be tight and fitted without having to see the dimples in my butt. Not that I have any, obviously. Wish I would have purchased in a size up but being in Canada, I won't return it. It's a lovely skirt and I will wear with Spanx to see if I can get in it. Hopefully, I'm just bloated.

Happy with the skirt
12th February 2013

I bought the skirt in bright pink. It's very comfortable and strech material, but you should wear a slip underneath as underwear shows through a little bit. I feel very feminine wearing it!

1st February 2013

fits like a glove, beautiful on makes you feel very womanly. I absolutely love the colour nearly went for black but opted for the pink and really pleased I did! definately recommend

Great skirt!
29th January 2013

Lots of reviews advised to go a size up but when I ordered there was only my usual size 10. Fit was great. It was snug but very flattering and can be dressed up in the evening for a classy look. I have also worn in the day to work and it looks very smart with a shirt. I will probably order more colours as they are available. The service was also very professional and helpful.

sexy skirt but darker pink than you expect
22nd January 2013

this is a great skirt - stylish and sexy - dressed up or down - works both ways. only issue is the colour is more of a magenta than dusky pink. still great though

Feel Gorgeous !!
2nd October 2012

I have just bought this skirt in Black for work and I'm totally delighted with it ! I bought a size up as per the previous reviews suggested and it's holds you in & shapes you.. I feel great when I wear it and you can't get better than that !
