    I like the shape of the skirt, but would want it longer. The sweater looks cheap, as so many have said – easy to imagine it losing shape after a few washes, too. & Why did someone think that a very high contrast, cool-toned scarf would work with this very warm and blended look?!? Jarring doesn’t equal ‘edgy’….was that the idea? oh well.

    Yes, I would wear the skirt – not too short or tight…..could go casual or dressy. I would wear it with opaque tights. I like all 3 pieces but not together. Would wear the sweater with skinny jeans and a different scarf.

    Yes. I like skirts, especially ones like this that don’t highlight the bumps in my physique. I have some taller boots that would work with this.

    I’m distracted by the wrinkled grey slacks to the left of the mannequin. The sweater is a cotton/acrylic blend and would pill terribly. According to the reviewers at the store site, the faux “suede” is flimsy and doesn’t look like the real thing. The color is wrong for me. For these reasons, I am a no.

    I like the skirt. If I wore skirts, it looks like a shape & length I could wear. I really like the color. I wouldn’t wear it with high low sweater, as I am not a fan of that look.

  6. November 16, 2019 / 12:53 pm

    I do like the sweater but no longer wear skirts. I would not have added the scarf for any reason, but would not count it out completely with a different outfit.

    I like the whole look. Since I don’t wear skirts would like the sweater and scarf with pants or jeans.

  8. November 16, 2019 / 11:16 am

    There are some things about the skirt and sweater outfit that I like and others that I don’t. I would not buy any of it for myself as shown and I don’t wear skirts anymore. Years ago, I had a faux suede skirt very similar to this one, only a shade lighter and I loved it. So, if I wore skirts now, I might buy the skirt. I like the color of the sweater, but not the hi-low bottom finish. If the sweater had a straight bottom I could consider getting it to wear with skinny pants. I like the scarf and buffalo plaid is very popular again.

    The sweater and scarf would not be for me but a midi version of the faux suede skirt would absolutely be a thumbs up. My first thought would be with black tights, black turtleneck (I wear them all winter) and a rich brown, gold, orange silk scarf – all of which I have – ballet flats for me or black boots. Second would be with chocolate brown cashmere sweater saddle brown boots or animal print flats & my new saddle brown Frye tote bag. Thanks for making me realize I need a skirt ?

    While I like the skirt here, I don’t care for the sweater it is paired with. I think the sweater would be great over pants or leggings.

    I recently purchased a faux suede skirt in this same color. It’s a bit longer and not as full and I can’t wait to wear it with my animal print top.

    I font wear skirts some I’ll just comment on the sweater. It has more brown than yellow in it on this website than on the loft website. I’m sure it’s me very old iPad causing that. If it did lean a little more brown I would like the color. I don’t like a low neck in back however, I like me sweaters to come up higher in the back. Overall I like the rest of the clothes, even the other patterned blouse but I’d wear it under a jacket for less pattern,

    P.S.: Re the scarf; meant to add — IF it is an infinity ‘double length’ style I find that they also can serve as an (emergency) make-shift hood to protect one’s hair. For example if the wind should pick up or for light sprinkles of rain or snow I’ve been known to draw one of its loops up which can be easily re-positioned afterwards. -Brenda-

    I might the skirt on if it were just a little longer and with a black top. But really nothing in this display appeals to my personal tastes.

    I’m loving the colors (as I can wear both) and I’m very partial to suede however I would not consider the sweater or skirt for myself. For starters; as I lean towards classic cuts I feel the style of sweater with the asymmetrical hemline will be dated very quickly regardless that rag knit sweaters have been in fashion for a very long time. As for the skirt; I do like its style and that it is most likely cut on the bias to create its fluid/relaxed hemline BUT because of my age I personally would prefer it to be a tad more fitted plus at midi length (or thereabout), and pair it with high shaft leather boots (to meet its hemline). In respect to the plaid/check scarf, I feel it certainly goes with the ensemble as shown and would even prove to be a great accessory otherwise.

    I don’t wear fall colours so the outfit as is would be a No. I no longer wear skirts. Since I retired they have not figured into my wardrobe. If I was going to wear a skirt, it would be a pencil, not a full, flirty, short skirt. The sweater comes in a plum and I like the high/low look, so I would probably buy the sweater but in another colour. I love scarves but this one doesn’t appeal to me.

    I would wear an A-line faux suede skirt in a length just below the knee, in a cool color like this year’s green, or black. Warm orangey fall colors like this one just don’t suit me.

    A-line skirts are fabulous for the pear shape. Yay, finally this season we get skirts that are not the incredibly unflattering pencil skirt! I am happy to see options for all body shapes, because we can’t trade our shape in for a new one every time designers stop designing for our bodies. I am actually buying dress boots this fall. I’d stopped wearing skirts for so long because of the pencil skirt trend that took over.

    • November 16, 2019 / 9:43 am

      I like the 3 pieces, but not together. I’d style the sweater with jeans as I think the texture lends itself to very casual. I’d pair the skirt with a black top and probably tuck it in or wear a belt. Of the 3 pieces, the scarf is my favorite and I’d probably buy that, but I don’t think it goes with this outfit. I’d wear it with the skirt and black top or the sweater with jeans.

    I love everything about the sweater skirt combo in front. I don’t usually prefer dresses to skirts because dresses make my short frame look taller. Because I have a fuller behind, I LOVE high-low sweaters rather than the ones that stop in the middle of my booty, which is most unflattering on me. I love the fullness of the skirt.

      Correction: I usually *prefer dresses to skirts.

    Like and would wear the skirt, not with this style sweater though. Just above knee with tights and boots. Also like the suggestion of using animal print on top.

  19. Eileen
    November 16, 2019 / 7:25 am

    I wouldn’t wear it, the materials look inexpensive. As a pear shape, the skirt needs a waistband, and is too short. The sweater is too long. The colors don’t suit me.

    I think all of this is cute, and I’d definitely try it on. Love faux suede; lighter and easier to wear in my warm climate than the real thing. I wear skirts and dresses about half the time. You know, when I see something that just isn’t for me, that’s how I describe it, rather than saying it’s ugly or that I look horrible in X color. Just because something doesn’t appeal to or flatter me doesn’t mean it wouldn’t look fabulous on someone else. That’s what makes fashion and style fun and interesting. Otherwise, we’d all look the same, which would be neither fun nor interesting. (And you never really know how something will or won’t work until you try it on.)

    This outfit looks cheap. I like the faux suede skirt and I would wear it but I would just as soon have a real suede skirt. These are my warm colors and they’re good on me but the sweater looks cheap too. The black and white buffalo plaid must have come off another mannequin by mistake. I don’t see the connection at all. I’m surprised this is Loft.
    I haven’t read any of the other comments yet so I’m curious to see what other people thought.
    I love this blog, just not the outfit ?

      Lizette, you said it all for me. Ty.

  22. November 16, 2019 / 7:08 am

    I would definitely wear the sweater, but I would choose a different scarf to wear with it. I love the faux suede fabric and the colour, but I would prefer a pencil skirt to the one shown.

  23. November 16, 2019 / 7:04 am

    I liked the sweater and scarf but would not wear the skirt, too full and short for my style. The blouse would overwhelm me but was pretty.

  24. Terri
    November 16, 2019 / 6:56 am

    While I don’t mind the look, it’s not for me. I’d wear the skirt if it was longer & perhaps a deeper color. I like the infinity scarf idea, but am not a fan of the pattern with this combination . The sweater is cute but I’d want a different color. Thinking that perhaps the sweater would look nicer with pants.

  25. Bea
    November 16, 2019 / 6:17 am

    I don’t wear skirts very often, but when I do, I usually select pencil skirts because they seem more flattering on my 5’1” not slim frame. Also, I prefer scarves that can be draped different ways. So this look is probably not for me,

  26. November 16, 2019 / 5:57 am

    I would not wear this as the colors are wrong as I am olived skinned and this combo turns my skin tone tooo yellow. also I am in mid 70’s and style of skirt is not for me.

  27. Mary
    November 16, 2019 / 5:45 am

    Like it and would wear it. Good colors, creative, and would fit me.

  28. Lynne
    November 16, 2019 / 5:45 am

    I love the skirt, but would prefer it in a deeper color, like medium to dark brown, or even autumn jewel tones. The sweater would look better with jeans, and I do not think that it enhances the skirt. The scarf is just meh. Maybe the skirt would look good with a print blouse, or a plaid/tweed blazer or jacket?

  29. Jackie
    November 16, 2019 / 5:33 am

    The skirt would be cute with a black cashmere sweater, black tights and suede booties … the caramel color of the skirt is very nice! Maybe add a leopard scarf for pizazz??

        Double yes! I actually own a burgundy faux suede skirt that is a little bit flirty like this. I wore it all over Paris with black or burgundy tights, booties, and a cashmere sweater in black. I loved the outfit and was very comfortable wearing it despite being a late 60’s age woman!

  30. Linda
    November 16, 2019 / 5:13 am

    I’d wear the skirt, but I’d buy it in a misses instead of petites to get a longer length. I’d wear it with boots, a different style sweater, and I love the scarf.

  31. beth
    November 16, 2019 / 5:01 am

    I like the skirt, but not the sweater. The rag sweater look doesn’t work in that color and I’d pump up the skirt with a cashmere cardigan. I wouldn’t wear a rag sweater to work. Maybe, and it’s a big maybe with slacks at home. I really don’t like the sweater.

  32. Sue Michel
    November 16, 2019 / 5:01 am

    Would wear the skirt-it’s cute & probably flattering. Sweater & scarf are ugly. Not fan of colors or combo. Colors aren’t good for me but it looks like a sad option with the skirt-many things would look better

  33. RoseAG
    November 16, 2019 / 4:54 am

    The hi/lo sweater also comes in purple, and has a flattering neckline. It would be worth a try-on.

    I like the plaid scarf. I’ve been seeing a lot of that buffalo plaid around and am anxious to style the buffalo plaid things I have, so the ideas are welcome.

  34. November 16, 2019 / 4:52 am

    I liked the sweater and scarf combination okay but didn’t care for the skirt. I think a straight skirt would have looked much better or jeans. This might have made me look at their sweaters with a scarf but I would have been looking for a different color.

  35. Michele

    I currently don’t own any skirts or dresses because I never wear them. I know exactly what store these items shown are from because half my closet is from this retailer. I actually own the sweater shown with the skirt. For me, I would wear the sweater with jeans or faux suede pants. I also like the scarf shown with the outfit. If I were looking for a skirt, I am not sure this is the style I would choose. Maybe something more along the lines of a pencil skirt.

  36. MP
    November 16, 2019 / 4:40 am

    I looked at the Loft website and the skirt is too full for being a short skirt. I do like the color. I would wear it if it was a bit longer and straight instead of full (flirty?). I would prefer the sweater in another color (solid black), and I would replace the scarf. I think a long necklace would look better. Add black tights and booties.

    • Ellen
      November 16, 2019 / 8:42 am

      I love the skirt and the color of it. I think the sweater they’ve put with it is not the best choice. Personally, I’m
      over the hi-lo look, but generally, I also don’t think it does much for the style of the skirt, nor does the color. I rarely by a loose weave sweater like this cause of snagging.The scarf, in my opinion,though it does have the color of the
      sweater in it, is the big no for me. Buffalo checks with this combination just are jarring to me.
      With the skirt, I would wear a black, or off white, or maybe even striped or color blocked crew or turtle neck tighter weave sweater, or maybe a fisherman sweater with tights and boots, tall or short.
      That would be me.

    I do like the sweater/skirt combo. The colors are good for my skintone.
    If this outfit matched my current lifestyle, I’d buy it.

  38. November 16, 2019 / 3:09 am

    I somewhat like all three looks on the mannequins but probably would not buy them. The bright yellow printed blouse looks nice but yellow is awful on me. The sweater and skirt in front looks a bit young for me and on closer inspection, the sweater looks a little bit low end, don’t know how to say this delicately. I wouldn’t buy these pieces. The grey slacks are fine with a white blouse but just don’t wow me! I have a nice pair of winter charcoal menswear slacks and a really flattering white shirt so this would not end up at home with me. Everything is just okay….
