  • Description

    This is the first skirt we ever released. I feel like skirts can quickly become too feminine, and I thought that the skirt I would design would be so utterly simple that it couldn't be hard to find elsewhere. However, I realized that I myself couldn't find what I was picturing, so I worked to create the most pared down version of this garment - nothing less and nothing more than exactly what was needed. It has a midi length to show some leg but also to provide modest coverage, a generous hem to add luxe weight and body to the fabric, and just enough gathering to add fullness and movement at the hip but to not become bulky at the waist.

    Wear this at home with a soft wool sweater and socks, then swap out the socks for suede heels and head to dinner. You can also pair this with an easy tee and sneakers, and throw this on in the city for a brisk walk.

  • Material & Care

    Fabric: Midweight Linen

    Fiber Content: 100% Linen

    Description: Medium weight, sturdy broadcloth linen that can be pressed to a neat, crisp finish or left wrinkled after washing for a perfectly lived-in look. Linen possesses natural strength and durability, and it's a super friendly fiber on the environment. It requires very little processing and is virtually lint free, hypoallergenic, comfortable in all seasons, insulating, and absorbent.

    Care: Machine washable. Wash on gentle cycle with cold water. Tumble dry warm. Leave unpressed for a beautifully rumpled look (as pictured here), or press on medium heat with steam to remove wrinkles.

    *Linen is a natural fiber and will fade and wear over time, which we love. If you prefer your garments to not show as much wear, hand wash and do not tumble dry.

    *Garment measurements were taken flat, so double where necessary. All measurements are approximate, +/- a tolerance that is to be expected with handmade clothing.

    Natalie’s waist places her in a Medium while her hips place her in a Large. To demonstrate a slimmer fit, Natalie wears a Medium in our product photos. Please note that sizing down may cause quicker wear and tear on a garment. If you too are in between sizes and intend to wear your pant regularly, then we suggest sizing up, particularly in Silk Crepe.

Quality Piece

This was my first piece from EZ, and I bought it for a trip to Chicago that was in the 80s. Thought it would be good for walking around in the heat. Great length, nice quality linen, and well made. A little loose in the waist.

Elizabeth Suzann, you beautiful, beautiful woman.

I ordered this skirt in the spring as a replacement for the Florence pants (which were just a smidge too short in the rise). I figured that the skirt would have a similar size and feel without the length-of-torso-and-width-of-bum issues. Boy, was I right. This skirt saved my life in May, when I had no summer clothes to speak of and a heat wave blasted Nashville. I wore it with slim-fitting tops tucked in, with t-shirts knotted. I wore it in the garden and at a convention. I love this thing. Just received a navy one today. :)

perfect skirt and beautiful quality fabric

This skirt is currently my favorite item in my closet and has been a great skirt to pair with sweaters as the weather cools. The linen is so beautiful-- far better quality than any other linen clothing I have ever purchased. Crisp enough to feel cool in hot weather but heavy enough to feel substantial when it's chilly. I was worried that the gathered waistline would be too bulky around my small frame, but this is not the case. I had the skirt shortened to hit me just above mid-calf and found this to be a perfect length.

Lovely cut but too long

I love the way this skirt falls and find it really flattering. However, I find it way too long for me, and I ordered the short length (and am 5'6). I still needed to take it in at a tailor to get my desired length. Now that it's a length I am happy with I wear it all the time and it will be my go-to summer skirt for sure! As with all my ES pieces the quality is impeccable.

Effortless Skirt

The Bel skirt hits a perfect sweet spot between intentional and relaxed, and I wear it several times a week. I do find the cut of mine a little narrow, but the new release has adjusted for that. (I also hemmed mine, but this was before variable lengths were offered.)

Beautiful, but billowy

I purchased the XS in flax last summer and thought it was just such a pretty skirt. Sadly, it didn't work for me and I sent it back. The skirt restricted my stride quite a bit and was very voluminous throughout the hip. I have since ordered a Bel Skirt in silk the new Gen 4 in the XXS and it fits perfectly! I thought I would try this skirt again in the new iteration (I so love my Gen 4 Bel skirt in silk--the stride issue was adjusted too). I'm sure this will be on heavy rotation this summer.
