The piping is very cute and breaks up the solid skirt. My only issue is the material is thin and stretchy. Typically, the structured pencil skirts in a size 4 fit me perfectly, but this one stretched across my thighs. It didn't feel uncomfortable but you could see the outline of my quad muscles through the skirt. If you have thinner legs, this skirt would probably add some curves, but if are muscular or curvier, go a size up.
