  • 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: Silk Crepe

    Fiber Content: 100% Silk

    Description: A washed silk crepe de chine that drapes and moves like liquid. Has a muted, ultra-soft feel with a barely-there sheen visible only with movement. This is an extremely high quality and medium-weight crepe that was custom developed just for us - meant to be worn, not coddled. All of our silk is garment-washed, so it has a lustrous yet matte finish and is totally machine washable.

    Care: Machine washable. Wash on gentle cycle with cool water. Tumble dry on medium heat. Hems, necklines, and sleeves will wrinkle. Press with steam to shape, and they'll return to crisp edges.

    *Silk 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.

Beautiful and luxurious

I love wearing my Bel skirt! It’s a great piece to wear to work during transitional spring and fall and I can even get away with it during winter with long johns underneath. The silk feels so luxurious on your skin and elevated any outfit. I sized down per some reviews and was very happy with the length.

Beautiful

I am 5'6'' with a 27 in waist and 39 inch hips and chose the medium regular with the help of customer service. This skirt is so light and silky and just gorgeous. The waistband cinches but feels soft and comfortable, and it's never gotten twisted. I've worn it a few times with heavy tights this winter but I know I'll enjoy it even more when I can wear it with bare legs, it's the perfect length to let in the breeze and designed for swishing around in as far as I'm concerned.

Grace in a garment.

This skirt makes me feel so graceful (not my normal state) and confident. It's feminine without being saccharine. I have it in black and wear it with silk georgias or my rhodes sweater and pointy pumps for a go-to, no-morning-decisions-needed look for work. Other days I like to layer on a thick sweater, patterned tights and chunky clogs or ankle booties for something a little more unexpected. The length is maybe an inch or two longer than I'd choose but I haven't yet felt compelled to hem it. I love that it has plenty of room and doesn't feel like your stride is constricted with walking, even without a slit. The elastic is soft and forgiving when pulling on over your hips. I plan to purchase a linen one in the future.

The best!

This skirt is, hands down, the most versatile piece in my closet. I love everything about it - the length, the fabric, the wide hem, and the fact that it’s washable!

Beautiful comfortable and elegant

This is so much more than just a simple black skirt. The cut is flowy, but not A-line, so it has a slimmer silhouette. It looks nice with my silk Ella tank either tucked in or left out. It's not too hot for the summer, but will be nice in the spring and fall as well. It looks really nice despite some weight fluctuation I've experienced lately.

Beautiful, but exchanged for the Andy palazzos

This skirt is so elegant and beautiful, but just a couple of days after I received it in the mail, the new warm weather collection was announced, with the Andy palazzos. I have loved seeing everyone wear their silk ES skirts, but try as I do, I am just not a skirt or dress person. As soon as I saw the palazzos, I knew that they would be the perfect compromise. The swing and flow of the Bel skirt, but the comfort and androgyny of trousers. I have since received my palazzos and they are perfect. The Bel skirt would be too, if you are a skirt person.

Perfect

I have a slimmer waist and wide hips, and I struggle to find comfortable skirts that don’t look dowdy. I can’t believe how flattering this skirt is. I’m 5’8”, and I usually wear a 4-6 in A-line skirts, but an 8-10 in pants (41” hips). I bought the small regular, and it fits perfectly. I’m considering also buying the short length to switch it up a bit because this skirt is all I wear now.

Comfortable & Elegant!

The silk is sturdy enough so you don't have to be precious with it. The waistband is wide and comfortable so that it doesn't pinch your stomach during long periods of wear. I was gone for a month on an international work trip with only a carry on and reached for this constantly. Love it!
