    Target

    Promising review: “The skirt is made of a nice material, it’s not stiff or awkward and the pleating falls nicely. It can be a little bit sheer in certain lighting so I recommend wearing some nude shorts underneath and it’ll be fine. You could probably get away with no shorts depending on how you style it. As for sizing, I normally wear a large in skirts (I’m a size 6/8 in jeans if that helps) and I bought both the large and medium and the medium fit better overall. I’m really happy with this skirt, definitely one of the higher quality white skirts I’ve seen lately” —Target Reviewer

    Promising review: “This maxi is super breezy and lovely for spring! I purchased lavender in store. I'm glad I did because it runs pretty big, I sized down..
