J. Crew Collection A-Line Midi Skirt in Italian Wool Blend

Hi Everyone!

I have a review of the J. Crew Collection A-Line Midi Skirt in Italian Wool Blend to share today. This skirt was at the top of my must-have list when I saw it in the NYFW pictures last year.  I am typically drawn to pencil skirt silhouettes, but I am SO glad that I tried this beautiful skirt because it is amazing.  Seriously amazing.

Here are two IRL pictures of the skirt in the "Brunswick Blue" colorway:




Fit:  I took my normal size 14 in this skirt.  The fit is TTS to *slightly* roomy.  I was nervous that the bow would add bulk to the midsection, but I actually think that it flatters the midsection.  The A-line silhouette is also very flattering.  The fabric is substantial without being too heavy, but it's not as heavy as the J. Crew No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Double-Serge Wool.  I love the skirt because it's a great design with equally great quality that pushes me out of my pencil skirt comfort zone.

I styled the skirt with the J. Crew Three-Quarter Sleeve Stretch Perfect Shirt and the Dulci Suede Kitten Heels.



Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Rynetta, thanks for the review; my store didn't care this skirt, so I couldn't try on. I'm wondering about the slit. How high does it come up, both standing and seated? Would like to be able to wear to class, but don't want to flash my grad students.

    1. Mygoddy: The slit is placed properly to avoid flashing anyone. It's not too high. I can easily wear this skirt to class to teach or to church. HTH.

  2. I'm love that skirt as well. Too bad it didn't come in petite. I guess at some point I'll try it, but I know the length will be a problem (I'm 4'11). Blue compliments you, Rynetta! Too fab!

  4. Beautiful! I've definitely admired the photos of this skirt on-line, but assumed it wouldn't flatter my shape, but you've definitely inspired me. Absolutely gorgeous and classy, Rynetta -- thank you for sharing!

    1. Hi June Wells!

      You're super sweet, thanks SO much for the compliments. I agree, this skirt is definitely a winner. I wish that I could say that I replicated the origami bow myself, but my amazing husband studied the photo and recreated it! He's definitely talented!

      Have a great week!
