DECENT FEATURES of the Icebreaker Women's Villa Skirt
When I first got it I thought it was kinda light (in weight) I was expecting something thicker. After I wore it all day... I fell in love with it. I live in Florida and I did not feel hot in it at all. With my other skirts I would have to flap it around to get air under there to cool me cool. I didn't have to do that with this skirt. It is light and airy. It does show all my bumps... I have 4 kids, so I gots me some really cute baby bumps. Although I got really nice compliments in it.
I hesitated to buy this skirt because of the price, but I'm really happy I did. This skirt is so easy to wear! I was surprised at how soft the fabric was. I have had compliments on it every time I have worn it, and people can't believe it's wool when they feel it. It is knee length and a good weight - definitely nice and cool for summer, but I plan on pairing it with some boots for winter. I think with some tights it will be warm enough. It isn't see-through, so I don't feel like I have to worry about my undies showing through. This is a must-buy! The pictures don't do it justice at all. I would highly recommend splurging on this one.
I ordered the Titanic color, which I expected to be either a rich vibrant blue or navy. I was initially disappointed to see that it is more of a muted grayish denim blue. When I paired it with an ivory top today, I saw that the color was much more nuanced and sophisticated, with a bit of purple/dark periwinkle to it. I am 5'8" and size 0. Size XS fits perfectly and hits just at the knee. I tried to unroll the waistband and extend so the skirt it would fall below my knee but NOPE. Doesn't work that way. It's designed to sit on your hips. The fabric is light, drapes well, is not shiny, and I expect to wear it with my dressier casual tops.
This skirt is so flattering on your bum. The fold over waist band allows you to adjust the length, or if you ate too much on holiday! It traveled beautifully on vacation and I found myself wearing it everyday....good thing it is merino!
