  • 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.

Slimming effect is unbelievable! I had pockets made. Simple and classic!

I ordered this skirt in both silk(black) and linen gauze (Tara). Both in Medium/Short. Kept both. I am 5'4", 155 lbs, 38"-31"-39.5". This skirt has some major slimming effect! ES customer service was superb and sent me some extra materials for adding pockets. I travel a lot and a skirt without pockets are not ideal for me. Silk version is well made and super easy to dress up or down. It does flow very nicely like other reviewers have mentioned. The material is not fragile at all but quite substantial. It is so nice that I just placed an order for the Ivory color silk skirt! Silk vs. Linen Gauze? For this skirt, definitely Silk version if I can only have one.

Honestly after all

I must say I love the fabric, it’s stunning and even stain resistant, I got the Bel skirt in moss color, the color is also great, the shape is not flattering for me... I have latin hips so the way the skirt falls makes a weird shape in me, I didn’t returned it because its only for store credit and it took forever so I cut it and made it short... I am 5’4 so I thought had to make it work for the price I paid

Simple is hard to find

I was so pumped to find this beautifully elegant and simple design, it was almost too good to be true. Elastic waist, silk like a dream and colourways that made it so difficult to choose. The moss is a stunning caramel/tan colour that goes with everything and I'm so glad I went with it! Love that I can machine wash it and wear it all year round in my mild Aussie climate.

Beautiful and versatile

I wore this skirt to my son's wedding--how beautiful! It can be dressed up or down so easily. It's a wonderful piece that is versatile in style and season.

feelin' fancy

I purchased the skirt for work and fancier occasions, although I must admit I feel plenty fancy at work when I wear it! I got the short length, and it's just about perfect length, plus the cut is narrow enough that I don't feel engulfed in fabric if I wear a flowier top. I went with the L short here instead of an XL so I could minimize length (and let me just say I truly appreciate the short option!!!). I'm right at the top end of the waist size for an L, so the elastic is a bit tight, although still comfortable. If I were purchasing pants I might pop for an XL, but with the skirt it's actually nice to have a little extra support to tuck in shirts.
