Great look and very comfortsble

I am a curvy woman and this skirt fits so well. It highlights my curves perfectly. It's very comfortable and I already have bought the other colors.

Pros:
perfect style
I would recommend this to a friend!
Nice fabric and colors.

I ordered this skirt in three different colors and I'm happy enough. The fabric is thinner than I expected but soft and the colors are deep and rich. I generally prefer a skirt that is a bit narrower and I'm considering taking it in but probably won't. The skirt is quite comfortable but it does ride up on me as skirts tend to do with my body. I'm big hipped and long waisted and before too long they are up under my breasts. The length is perfect, not too long and not too short. Can't wait till the weather is cooler so I can bring out my boots and over the knee socks (or wool tights) to wear with these skirts.

Pros:
deep rich colors, thin soft durable fabric, dependable sizing
Cons:
too full cut

This skirt is my second one (different color). It wears and washes easily. And it lasts forever. I dress it up and dress it down .. It's just about replaced my jeans.

Pros:
everything
Cons:
wish it came in more colors

Super!

"This is a great, basic knit skirt. I am 5'3"" and 125 lbs. and the small fits perfectly. Body skimming but not tight. The wide waistband eliminates any muffin top. It falls just above the knee so perfect for the office, but also great for just kickin' it! I love this skirt and tempted to buy another one..."

Pros:
versatile, great fit

Best skirt on the planet

Jennyann
Location: West Linn, Oregon Age 45-54 Gender: female
I lost my black Olique skirt and lamented its loss immensely. The blue version is a great substitute (I also have the red version). The fit, comfort and versatility of this skirt is unsurpassed in my opinion. My go-to skirts.

Pros:
great fit, great comfort, great versitility
Cons:
none

"I love how this skirt hangs, and being 5'2"", it hits me just at the knees, the perfect length for me. I'm looking forward to wearing it all winter with knee socks or boots. It's very flattering and true to size."

Location: Portland, OR Age 25-34 Gender: female
I get compliments whenever I wear my oblique skirt (and I wear it often!) The licorice is a nice dark brown and it goes well with a variety of colors. The skirt drapes well, and the detailing adds a nice texture without being distracting. The length is nice--not too long, nor too short. I was able to wear my HT leggings with this skirt the other day, and it looked awesome. It's definitely a wardrobe staple and I'm debating getting this skirt in additional colors.

Pros:
length, fabric/drape
I would recommend this to a friend!
Super cute and comfy!

I love this skirt, I was not sure it would hang right on a curvier gal like me, but it is great, so cute, hangs just right, shows off all the good stuff and is very comfortable. The material seems durable. Very pleased.

Terrific value

KKEY
Location: Missoula, Mt Age Over 65 Gender: female
I knew I would love this skirt and I do,. It is comfortable, easy to care for and versatile. I can wear it around town, to a country dance, or out to dinner. It will be fine to wear with a sweater and tights and boots when the weather gets cold. I am 69 and this kind of garment suits my lifestyle perfectly. And, yes, it is sexy - a great garment to show off good legs. Make more like this; it is great for all ages.

Pros:
versitility, easy care, good color
Cons:
none

Love the Samba fabric

Newamama
Location: Spokane, WA Age 35-44 Gender: female
I searched endlessly for a skirt that was comfortable enough to chase the toddler, nice enough to dress up for work, durable enough to hold up to all kinds of abuse, and would hide my figure flaws. I have had the Oblique Skirt for months now and it hasn't let me down. It hasn't wrinkled, stretched, shrunk, pilled, or snagged. It is cute with sandals or ballet flats and will look good with tights and boots this winter. I have since purchased a dress and a top in the Samba fabric. Love it, thank you!

Great skirt with a comfortable length and has a nice, flirty flare to it. My only complaint being that the waistband becomes much too relaxed during the day. i had to fold it over.

Pros:
soft
Cons:
waistband too large

Perfect skirt, inconsistent sizing

Location: Hartford, CT Age 45-54 Gender: female
I always love anything from Horny Toad and I love how they support adults with developmental disabilities. And that their fabrics are often organic. They don't all fit me, but this skirt was perfect. Long enough to go almost anywhere, short enough to be cute. Very nice cut and soft fabric. My only regret is that I ordered two on sale in two colors and the brown fit and the blue did not! I wanted that blue one, because it seemed to go with a lot of things, but I am on the fence about reordering. I do love how these clothes are feminine and very practical at the same time. Flattering, and made for real women. Sometimes they seem to have very tall models, but when the items do fit me, they are heavenly and get a lot of wear.

Pros:
organic, flattering, soft, washable
Cons:
inconsistent sizing

TrueRed1964
Location: Charleston SC Age 45-54 Gender: female
This is a great skirt. I have it in black, gray and now brown. The length and swing are perfect and the banded waist keeps it snug. Great to wear casual to the beach or easy to dress up for a night out. Still waiting for them to make a true red.

Pros:
great length
Cons:
size runs smaller than chart

Nice shape and very flat waist band

Location: St Louis MO Age 35-44 Gender: female
I ordered a medium. I am between an 8 and 10. It fits very well and has a nice weight to it. I ordered blue and black and I like them both. The waist band sits very flat which gives the skirt a nice lean look with long tshirts pulled down over it.

I would recommend this to a friend!

I love this skirt! It has a very flattering shape - nicely fitted over the hips. It flairs nicely for comfortable walking and is very comfortable overall. The length is great for work days, and it works well for casual weekends, too.

I just bought a second one of these. Skirt hangs nicely, and I roll the wide waistband over when I want a shorter length. I wore it all summer and now all winter with wool tights or leggings and tall boots. I bike everywhere and the skirt goes from biking to work to dinner and a movie.

Pros:
comfortable and cute

Great length and cut!
February 5, 2014
mudhen
Location: cincinnati, ohio Age 55-65 Gender: female
"Overall, I thought it was a good purchase. I am 5'9"" and weigh 143. I was torn between the medium and the large. I exchanged the medium for the tall since I wanted to wear it with tights and did not want anything to ride up. So the large is a little big around the waist/hip line, but I'm still okay with the fit. Other lines I have tried offer only mini-skirts in this style. I am in my sixties, relatively slim, and active. Mini-skirts that look great on 20-somethings are inappropriate for me; that ship has sailed. I also thought the price was reasonable in comparison to other skirts I tried."

Pros:
the cut and the length
Cons:
fabric semi-transparent

Great Skirt!

Judy
Location: Connecticut Age 55-65 Gender: female
I just ordered this skirt for a coming trip to Ecuador. I love it. I am 5 feet 3 inches and 130 pounds. I ordered the size small and it is perfect in size and in length. It is about 1 inch below the top of my knee. the fabric is lightweight and I was worried about the wide waistband but it lays flat and does not add bulk at all.

Pros:
lightweight fabric but not too flimsy.
Cons:
none
I would recommend this to a friend!
Like the fabric and the cut

Vicki
Location: Florida Age 45-54 Gender: female
I like the way this skirt is cut, and the fabric. The only drawback is the waistband, being wide, doesn't lay against my waist but rather leans out away from my waist. Its not enough of a problem to send it back though.

I would recommend this to a friend!

Not like previous oblique skirt

Emolit
Location: Nh Age 35-44 Gender: female
"I usually buy Horny Toad skirts, dresses in multiples. I have been loving my old Oblique skirts to death, so I wanted to treat myself to a fresh one.Fit; totally different! Waay smaller, shorter, more a-line. XS waistband measured 12"", flat. I thought it was a child's skirt when I took it out of the package. I usually wear a size 2 jean, size 4 trouser. This fit like a 00.Quality; much thinner, less forgiving fabric. Due to the bias cut, consider bike shorts, and/or a slip.Color; rubelite or tourmaline, not red.This will be going back. I held it up to my old Oblique, and it is much smaller. It isn't a bad skirt, if you don't compare it to anything you have previously purchased from HT."

This is such a cool skirt, but probably would have gone down a size had I not been buying on line. I always need an XL in your dresses, so was surprised I should've just gone with the L in skirt.

Pros:
flattering cut
Cons:

Franki
Location: Seattle Age 35-44 Gender: female
When I was about 25 weeks pregnancy, I had the black ones in small and fell in LOVE with it - then got 2 more colors (blue & red) - love wearing them everyday because of the soft fabric! Bonus for pregnant ladies!! The waist band holds my belly very well. Im now 32 weeks and it still fits me like a real lady with style! I believe it will continue looking great on me after birth.

Pros:
soft fabric, style, perfect for pregnant ladies

This is the 2nd color I ordered in this skirt. I've had my other one several seasons and love how versatile it is. I have packed it to go on vacations, wear it to work all seasons, and pull it on when I don't have anytime to get out the door. I'm always happy how it looks and the flat waistband is very flattering.

Pros:
great fit
