My Perfect Skirt

Contrast stitching + to-the-knee length + a flirty flair + good price point = my dream skirt. This Marc Jacobs skirt ticks all the boxes—I’d wear it now with sandals and a tee, then an oversized sweater and sneakers (Converse) in the fall.

  • I’m a little confused by the new Marc Jacobs. I know they combined the 2 lines and the price points are lower but is the quality still there? Don’t get me wrong, I’m not looking for a $1,500 skirt but it just doesn’t seem like the old Marc Jacobs – more like it’s only Marc by Marc.

  • But unfortunately, it is not to the knee!! It looks like about 2 inches above the knee and NAP describes it as a mini skirt. Boo.

  • Mary Kay, this is exactly what frustrates me about online shopping. Terms such as “to the knee”, “hits at hip”, “ankle length” etc. are not at all helpful. Even two people the same height may be proportioned very differently. Brick and mortar shopping is still the best option for many people, and I hope it doesn’t become just a memory.

  • I am 5’5″ and it is to my knee, mid knee, actually. It’s just what I’d hoped it would be—a good skirt at a good price. I would say the quality falls somewhere in between the Marc Jacobs and Marc by Marc lines. It’s a keeper, for sure. I’ll take a pic later.

  • Great to hear it is mid knee – just what I like.

    Mary KayAugust 11th, 2017  4:45 PM

  • The models are most likely 5’10” and above, so the skirt will be shorter on them. Cute skirt, but I agree with Mary Kay, online shopping is challenging unless you already know an item fits.

  • Aha! I found it! You looked so good in this the other day! The contrast stitching is such an elegant, subtle detail that makes this skirt quietly distinctive (and still classic!) xx

  • Hi Preston! I wore this skirt today with the Erdem x H&M red/pink sweater mohair you recently posted in the shop—-so cute together and I got many compliments on it. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  • Linda, thank you for circling back. I often don’t know if folks like my picks. A very merry Christmas to you and yours!
