I love my navy Ruched skirt and have been looking everywhere for something similar in grey.

This one from mint velvet is soooo comfy, flattering, and it's the just below the knee length which the Boden one should be but isn't cos it always rides up.

You're welcome X

What is this ruched skirt excitement? I've never shopped at boden. Something I should know? smile

It depends if you like Ruched skirts!

I'm always good for a skirt - not sure if I've gone ruched before. Tell me more lol

Thanks. I've been looking for a grey tube skirt for ages, so will definitely investigate that.

If you want the Boden one in black or stripy it's going cheap, but you may have to wait a while for stock.

I don't wear black otherwise I'd be tempted

I've never worn boden. What's the sizing like? How long do the skirts come? Im fairly long of leg and 5"8 will I need the long length?

I've never worn boden. What's the sizing like? Is the skirt above or below knee and what shoes/boots do people wear with it?

Sizing tends to be generous.

The skirt stretches to on or just below the knee but mine (standard fit) rides up to an inch above.

I'm 5'7

What would you wear this with?

It's a black skirt. Wear it with anything you want.

H&M do a jersey skirt in a similar style
But cheaper. Also in marl grey in store. It's nice, though not ruched smile

Wow thank you... I wear flared ones more often so wasn't sure how to style a fitted one like that. Just wondered how people styled them. confused

Fruityb I know what you mean. I love this skirt but normally wear A line skirts with a fitted top. I find fitted tops and fitted skirts don't suit me as a combo so always struggle to pair this style a bit!

I think for winter a fitted jersey skirt with a slouch jumper, thick tights and ankle boots looks nice.

This one is an unflattering length on me, makes me look frumpy. Wish I could carry it off!

Thanks op, I'll have a look. Does anyone know if the Mint Velvet one is double thick? I love a ruched skirt but I need that extra layer. The website doesn't say so I suspect that means 'no'.

Yes, it is double thick
