What?s not to love? Curve-hugging and universally flattering, the pencil skirt is a wardrobe staple. The gilded shimmer and opulent wink of Hazel's brocade version gives this timeless silhouette must-have status.

Love this skirt!!!!!Ok, let me start by saying the brocade does have a golden quality to it and not bronze as in the picture. The golden color does not detract from the beauty of this skirt. The fabric is a good weight and will stand up well to wear....plus it is well made. I agree with other reviewers with the sizing...it runs large. I took a size xs when I'm normally a small, so if interested, size down. For ref. 27 waist and 35 hips...the xs fit perfectly. The length landed approx. 2 inches below the knee on me, but I like the length when it's paired with a fitted silhouette.

Grandma's drapesI ordered this skirt online with the hopes it would look fantastic despite some reviews saying there was too much fabric and too big for a small frame. I was excited when it arrived and immediately tried it on. Well, other reviewers were correct! The small was huge; (there actually was space between the skirt and my waist) I am 5'7, 130lbs and a size 2- I'm small but not petite. The fabric was pretty but too shiny; it looked like I cut my grandma's drapes off and made a skirt. The length was too long- hung awkwardly passed my knees and just made me look frumpy. I guess you have to be 6'0 and above to pull this one off.

Not for the Pear of ShapeI thought I would be safe ordering a size L based on the reviews that said this skirt is "huge" and "runs very large." No. No. NO. It runs true to size, actually it fits snugly due to the straight pencil shape. The color and fabric are exactly like the photo: a gold and black brocade. But it is not soft and forgiving like the reviewers have said. Definitely size way, way UP for this one if you are an hourglass or a pear. I'm disappointed that I'll have to take this one back.

Perfect party skirt!I found this skirt in the store and it was love at first sight. It is a brighter gold than in the picture so definitely not an everyday skirt but perfect for all the holiday parties! It does run big...I'm barely down to a size 6 after having a baby and I fit into a small in this skirt so size down. The fabric is beautiful, soft and I love the longer length...much classier than an above-the-knee pencil skirt, just not for the petite. I'm 5'5" and worn right at the waist, it hit just under my knee. LOVE!

Amazing pencil skirt!I absolutely loved this skirt. It runs large so buy a size down. The material is thick and not cheap. The color is brighter than the picture which I liked even more. I also bought the top but it is not a top for big breasted woman.
