  • 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.

The perfect skirt

This was just what I was looking for. The skirt is comfortable and stylish. I wear it all the time and it goes with anything. It’s soft and luxurious but doesn’t feel too precious so you feel like it’s ok to wear just to lounge around the house. Fits really well but I could probably have gone with the shorter version, will probably do that when I buy another one (I’m already craving a white one!).

Wedding skirt!

I got the Bel Skirt in white silk crepe to wear at my wedding. I wore a slip under it, and paired it with a cropped white silk tank. It was comfortable, beautiful, and I look forward to wearing it for years to come!

Perfect midi skirt

Love the skirt!!! Length is perfect. More longer than my other midi ones, but love it. I would say runs try to size. What I most love is the fabric. Super soft, the color is a beautiful washed black and is machine washable. For me it’s perfection. I also love that it’s a timeless piece that will never go out of style and I can style it my own way. Very simple to pair it, from t-shirt to silky blouses. Endless options. I couldn’t love it more.

Stunning skirt

After seeing some other people’s comments online I decided to purchase this skirt in the short length. I am 5’7 & the short was the perfect length. I feel like the regular would have been way too overwhelming for my frame.

The silk crepe is stunning & looks like water flowing as you walk. My husband comments on how he loves the rust color every time I wear it.

Beautiful, easy to wear and well-made skirt. Needs a slip.

I got in ivory and love love love it. Size medium (I'm 5'8" 150lbs 38-29-41). I love wearing as paired on the site with a black Georgia T in black linen and mules. I wear to work, for a date, at a conference... so comfy, easy to dress up or down. Only downside is it's see through in ivory silk. I bought a slip on Amazon that pairs perfectly with it though: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00847JCM8/ (size small, 30" in ivory). After finding the perfect slip, this skirt is a total breeze. I'll note that I prefer slips under dresses and skirts, both for coverage, but also so the skirt doesn't turn into a wedgie when sitting/standing/walking :)

Great skirt

My only compliant is in regards to the making. I work with quality control for a European brand and the uneven stitching on the hem with picked threads would be classed as a defect.

But the skirt is a great fit and the quality of the silk is both luxurious and practical.

Lovely work and please give thanks to Samar :)

It’s great, perfect for my small up coming wedding event in 2020.

The fabric is so comfortable against your skin, love the color and super easy to care for. Only bump here is the see through part but if pair with another layer inside would do just fine.

So happy with expanded sizes!

I get compliments whenever I wear this gorgeous skirt. The fabric is substantial and special without being too precious looking. The color is amazing, of course. I waited for the bigger sizes and it fits perfectly. It’s not too flowy for my short, round body but I never feel like I’m stretching out the seams. The short length is just right for 5’4” me. Oh, and, wow, does this silk feel great on bare legs!
