Rated 5 out of 5 by Evaska Skirt to End All Skirts
This is what you reach for when you absolutely can't figure out what to wear. Put it on with any top and suddenly you're dressed up, sophisticated, and ready for anything. It looks equally good with bare legs and with tights. With loose flowy tops it's the grounding piece that let's you get away with any amount of volume; with a well-fitting classic cardi, it reads Jackie O.; with a jacket, it's boardroom ready.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marie07 Great basic black skirt
Everyone needs a great, go-to basic black skirt and this is it! Lighter fabric, that retains its shape with just the right amount of stretch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by socalranchgal BEST SKIRT EVER!
I live in this skirt at work. I have it in every color I could get my hands on. It wears like iron, never shows a wrinkle and is incredibly comfy. It is very flattering to my curvy hips and looks great with heels or flats. I can dress it up or down. The material is very stretchy and forgiving if I gain or lose a few pounds - it still looks great. I get more compliments on these skirts than anything else in my wardrobe. I love that J.Jill has made entire color palettes to coordinate with some of the more exotic colors. I have the matching tops, sweaters, scarves to mix and match. It makes dressing for work easy and fun. Please bring this skirt back in more fun colors. We need navy blue too! I will continue to the new colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KB2012 Excellent across the board!
This skirt is awesome in every way. Fabric is semi-thick with a slick quality-this enables the skirt to drape well. I ordered the XS in misses and petite due to availability and both fit like a dream (5'2, 120lbs). I ordered olive, persian blue, sangria, camel and espresso. I love to wear skirts and plan to pair with boots I also got on the 30% off sale recently. These skirts really are all-season.

I got this yesterday and intend to wear it in cooler weather with tights and a cardigan. Flattering fit; waistband stays in place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Doree33 The tall length is perfect
I'm 5'9 so the right length and fit is sometime very difficult to fine. However, JJill has made my life much easier when it comes to true to size. And this skirt is just right. Fits the buttock perfectly. The material look classy and rich. Love it. Can we have more tall colors in this skirt?

Rated 5 out of 5 by esca24 great skirt
I have this skirt in black and just purchased brown..........extremely satisfied with the weight and quality of this skirt. I ordered the petite in the black and misses in brown for a change, fortunately it's straight rather than A line. Great slip-on unmatched style with only a modest kick pleat, can't go wrong!!! Previously ordered a much lighter weight jjill pencil skirt without kick pleat while it was ridiculously clearance priced and found it paired well with my black swim suit (save!!!)..........jjill ponte knit skirts, dresses, and jumpers ALWAYS a great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gattina The go-to skirt for everyday wear
These skirts are terrific—I mean the whole JJill range of pull-on, straight, slightly stretchy, knee-length skirts. This is just one of several I've bought in different fabrics and colours. The ponte-knit fabric of this one is smooth and satisfyingly heavy. And I love the espresso colour.
For my shape, these skirts are perfect. I can't wear A-line anything; skirts must be straight. All too often, though, that means I can't walk properly in them either, and when I sit down I have to hoist them up to my thighs, or watch as they make their way upwards unbidden.
Not so with these babies. They stretch enough for normal walking and sitting (probably not for rock-climbing or wind-surfing) without being too clingy. And they are knee-length! Thank you, JJill! Minis are fine for the under-25s, or for just about anyone with thick black tights [British English for 'panty-hose'], but you can wear these skirts with fine stockings too, or with bare legs.
(As for calf-length, I just don't get it. Calf-length skirts and dresses end just where the lower part of your legs is thickest. What is the point of that, unless you have stick-thin legs, which in my case does not apply?)
