When I first tried this on, I was kind of "meh" about it. It hung rather flatly unlike the bell-like appearance it has on the model. I went back the next day (I couldn't resist) and tried on the xs (I didn't know the size I tried on yesterday was a small--my usual size) and fell in love. I've been searching for a leather skirt and this is the one! I have heard some of you ladies say you don't want a bell-shaped skirt. If that is the case, I would suggest you size up, but be prepared to have the waistband a little loose. Speaking of the waistband, I am extremely impressed that they made it so it is snug, but doesn't squeeze me to death or press into my belly uncomfortably. Best of all about this skirt, it is HAND WASH and NOT DRY CLEAN!! Hooray for faux leather! Not only is this skirt cheaper because it's vegan leather, but you also save money with having no dry cleaning bills!

I love the fact that FP is finally offering vegan offerings. Its really hard to find cool stylish clothes that are not made from any animal products. I hope FP extends this line to include shoes, etc...
The skirt is absolutely perfect. The length hits top of the thighs - but not so short that everything hangs out. The material looks and feels like leather, but without the guilt. Its rich and soft. Not that vinyl look cheesy stuff.
This is definitely a must-have for the fall season. And a classic piece for any wardrobe.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by blackw1dow Extremely tight, incredibly heavy!
I have never worn a skirt as heavy as this! what were the manufacturers thinking? The plastic holds on to my waist tightly and I'm a small so i would size up! i still haven't found a use for this, unless you, like the model, are traveling to venice and feel the need to look eccentric getting on a boat!! Definitely not for day to day wear as the other reviewers mentioned.

does not look as pleated as I thought it would, and it is kind of roomy
the lining of mine is kind of off and the stiching in the seems look torn, I may have to return if i have the chance, it is a beautiful skirt but I think i just recieved a damaged version which sucks I had high hopes for this skirt
-it also fits larger like past reviews have said
but for the outside first look appearance very beautiful skirt

this is a pretty nice skirt for fake leather. i will most likely be keeping it however the two things that bother me are the waistband, i wish the elastic was covered, and the pleats, the pleats are sewn together so it cant move freely. other than that i would still give the skirt a chance because its still very cute!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by noizenews Perfect Skirt!
Love the way it looks. The material is so soft, and I prefer the non leather part of the waistband because it's more confy and doesn't get ruined my clip hangers. The waist is very stretchy and comfy. The skirt is versatile because you can wear it low on the waist if you want it to be longer, or high on the waist if you want it to be a mini. Free People should make more vegan leather skirts but maybe try different colors like red, purple, pink and white!

I agree with previous reviews- this does run a little large. As FP is sold out of the small, I have decided to make this work even if it's a little loose in the waist (a minor alteration did the trick as the waistband is elastic). The material really does look and feel like leather- it is substantial but not too heavy. One of the best details is that while it appears to be pleated, the pleats are actually seams in the material. This makes it so much easier to wear! It actually looks even better as it wrinkles from wear.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by brinaa gorgeous skirt- buy your usual fp size
I adore this skirt! I've been looking for a leather pleated skirt for a while and when I saw this one from free people and I just had to snatch it up. I wanted it so bad, in fact, that instead of waiting for the S to come back in stock (my usual fp size) I went ahead and bought the M. It fits, but it doesnt hug my waist the way I'd like. I want to get it altered but I'm afraid it will be difficult b/c of the leather. Overall a gorgeous skirt! Looks just as good as pictured
